Topic - iPhone - 2G model worth getting?

ksjs - on 27 Nov 2012
Hello,

Sorry for a lazy post but rather than trawling internet for ages I was hoping to draw on UKC users' knowledge:

I have steadfastly refused to get a smartphone (even though secretly I'd quite like one - I hate myself for this). My current mobile (inherited and until recently very happy) has however started to have battery issues. I'm guessing I can replace the battery but I don't especially like the phone. Anyway, I've been looking on ebay at phones (I can't justify the cost of a new one) and have a few questions:

- is a 2G iPhone worth getting, if not which is the oldest model I can reasonably opt for?

- if a phone is locked to a particular network is it easy to unlock it?

- are tariffs all contract linked or are there any (value for money) pay as you go deals?

- is it an easy repair to replace the screen / digitiser (lots of iphones on ebay with a broken screen)?

Thanks!
