Yes you could, just make sure it's on O2 or unlocked. I'm not one to buy off ebay etc, there's too many villains out there who think nothing of reporting it stolen for the insurance, but good luck on that.

well i've saw a few online im keeping my eye on anyway.
would i need to change to an iphone contract? or could i just stay on mine and add a data bolt on? i don't need to use iphone specific stuff like visual voicemail. i've lived without it on my samsung so i wouldnt need it now Smiley Tongue

good stuff. i've only just caught on about what you meant with the insurance job though. if they reported the iphone stolen it would be locked automatically, correct?

Yes the handset would be locked and the seller paid by yourself and the insurance company.
But there again, many people have bought off ebay with no problems so at the end of the day you weigh up the risks and go with your gut instinct.

Re: current contract sim in iphone

well i was considering trying to get one in my area so i can go check it out first, see if it looks a bit dodgy.
by the way, i've looked online and i'm not able to add the data bolt-on to my contract through my o2. is it still available?
