iPhone hand-me-downs

When I was little hand-me-downs were all about getting your older brother’s old clothes. Now according to this article in PocketPicks it can mean iPhones as well.

Anyone who upgrades from the 2G iPhone to the new 3G one can simply pass the old one to family or friends. It seems if the recipient is an O2 customer they can transfer onto the iPhone tarriff, or if not O2 will be offering iPhone Pay and Go SIMs.

If you don’t want to pass it on to anyone (or you’ve got no friends) then you can use O2’s handset recycling service.

It will be interesting to see how the Pay and Go SIMs work – will it still mean unlimited data or will they cap that? Maybe it will be along the lines of Vodafone’s £7.50 per month unlimited data, as long as you top up that much per month – away you go. Let’s see.

    Hi AJ, thanks for that. Although it only talks about the 3G iPhone on Pay as you Go, they don't mention the hand-me-down 2G iPhones.

    You are right about the hand me downs but the free data and wifi for 6 months is not a bad idea.
