FS 2G Iphone $100
This was my significant other's phone. About a week ago it developed a SOFTWARE issue. Half of the buttons on the home screen will not respond. The same areas on the touchscreen will respond on the next page/screen. Therefore, there is no hardware issue with the phone itself or the screen.
There is a local computer shop here that fixes software problems for $40. She did not want the downtime on her phone so she went into the ATT store today and did an upgrade.
Due to the circumstances, this phone is sold AS-IS and the sale is final. If you are knowledgable, you can fix it yourself im sure. The phone itself is very clean. There is no major wear and the screen is clean. It had a protective case and a screen protector on it at all times.
It comes with an iskin revo ($40 accessory and the best protective skin on the market- its heavy duty rubber and has a removable hard plastic shield for the screen) and possibly a car charger if she is willing to part with it. I dont think it will work with her new phone.
We are asking $100 plus shipping and paypal obo
We wanted to keep our 2G phones forever. The 3G simply costs more money a month and IMO is not that much faster or worth the additional $15 a month.

I'll take $80 plus shipping and paypal....I'm sure someone can fix this thing. It's actually not half the buttons - it's only the bottom 4 "shortcut/home" keys. The unlock slide works though, so it's not the screen - it's a software issue.

Sounds like a JailBreak gone wrong

The phone was jail broken, yes. But it worked for several months (maybe a year?) after that. One day the bottom row suddenly stopped working. It was not dropped or anything.
The bonus to purchasing this phone would be that you do not have to sign a contract with AT&T and you don't have to purchase the more expensive i-phone plan that is required of the 3g/3gs.
I'm open to offers and will try to take pics asap.

How far JB'd was it.. Did you have winterboard on there? If so, I would suggest removing that since you probably had options set for a theme or icon modification..
Just a thought.
It's a good price really!! It's def. software related.
Why don't you just do a factory restore through itunes and sell it as a fully operational unit?
