Upgrading from 3G to 3GS
I am going to go buy the new 32 GB 3GS and sell my iphone 3G 16 GB. My 3G is jailbroken on the 3.0 software, but not unlocked. My plan is to upgrade to 3.1 and then jailbreak AND unlock it (so that I can sell it for more money).
My questions are, if I buy the new phone before I jailbreak the old phone to the 3.1 software, will I not be able to do it b/c Iíll have essentially an iPod Touch once I remove my phone number from the old phone for the new phone? So Iíll have to sell my old 3G as jailbroken without the 3.1 upgrade?
Thanks for all your help.

Which carrier are you with? do you have a sim? it's a little different in the US here in Canada you can only get the Iphone on Rogers or Fido both of which use SIM cards. So if you do have a SIM then once you get the 3Gs it's just a matter of swapping your SIM into the phone. So on the flipside when you're ready to JB your 3G just put your SIM in do what you have to do and then remove it once you're done and pop it back into the 3Gs.

The SIM card is no matter, you can jailbreak and unlock a phone without a SIM.
But here's your problem, there is currently no jailbreak or unlock for 3.1, so if you upgrade the phone to 3.1 you aren't going to be able to do any of that until the dev team releases an update.
