hey guys
My wife wants a Iphone but all she does is text and pics. She jsut needs a better phone she has a cheapo ATT basic phone. Im thinking of getting her one of those fake I phones ( cant spend 300$ on a new one)
What do you guys think about those. She doesnt care aboutthe apps and stuff. She jsut wants a better pic screen and easier text phone. The one she has now sucks for texting. too many steps to get to the text screen
i can get a fake I phone for about 80$
Thanx
Rob

If she said that she specifically wanted an "iPhone" by name, don't give her anything but. You'll regret it. All the women I know are big on "name brand" stuff. If she just wants a better phone, have her pick it out.

No she just wants a better phone. if it comes to the point where she wants a i pone Ill give her mine and ill get the newer one. She jsut wants somethign thats easier/quicker to text and get messages with. My wife is pretty much not the brand name slut. She jsut wants something easier to text and see pics sent from her kids.

Then I say go for it. I've never heard of them though, so I can't really give my opinion on the phone itself.

Good luck

Hey let me help you out, these are all real iPhones from AT&T that are less than $300. Yes they are refurbs but my girl bought one and it was good as new


$50 Iphone 3g - http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/packages/packages-details.jsp?q_package=sku3130222

$150 iPhone 3gS - http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/packages/packages-details.jsp?q_package=sku4160234&_requestid=188896

Your wife is asking for an iPhone and you give her a fake = You in the doghouse. Thats like asking for an EoTech and getting some made in China crap.
Thank me later;)

You can get one of the older generation iphones for the same price on ebay. Just gotta stick her SIM card into it. The iPhone doesn't sell for $300 new either.

My roomate bought a hi phone from China and it lasted about 2 weeks and it took him longer to get it from China with all the shipping problems he had.

If she needs a good texting phone then she needs one with a keyboard.

This. All my wife does is text so I bought her the LG Xenon. Sweet little touch screen phone but it also slides for a full qwerty keyboard. Was only $50 at Best Buy when I upgraded.

Looks like she wants a sliding keypad style phone

Not an Iphone expert but I thought you couldn't send pictures via text message.

Iphones are quirky enough on their own. I wouldn't waste time with the fakies - especially with no warranty & tech support.

Android phones are more like an iPhone than that thing, oh and they do things the iPhone doesn't such as true multitasking.

They added MMS with the last update. Only took them two years.
