    its back to the apple warehouse to be referb. and then shipped back out to apple stores everywhere. their not just going to throw them in the trash =P

    and yes there is a free upgrade for those who bought within a month or 2 before the release of the 3g

    Quite obvious they are not gonna throw them into thrash

    Y i asked this question is cuz... i would be more than happy to pick up a few refurb's at a lower price.
    3g's not gonna be tht useful here in India.. with not so technically advanced service providers

    Don't think they would be selling 1st Gen refurbs at a store, but most likely using them as replacement units. And of course there's still plenty of places around the world who don't have 3G.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    ah i see, didnt think about that, lol.......yea im going to have to go with the mod. on this one(because the only time i go in the apple store is to get a new iphone because the old one took a crap....lol..thankfully its got warranty, otherwise i'd literally be sh*tting bricks, rofl)

    if you want to get a few good/cheap iphones, try checking several places, one being here on MMI, on the home page of the forums theres a place to buy/sell and people are always doing it, theres ebay(deff. not recommended) or craigslist(not sure if its in your area)...those are just a few ex.
