What to do after buying the IPhone?
I have a friend. He was very lucky, a friend presented him with its capacity of a 16GB iPhone 3G, still original, and Factory Unlock . Factory Unlock means you can use any SIM card, not tied to a specific provider.
My friend asked me, “what should I do with this iPhone?”. “Insert SIM card and ready to be use it for the CALL and SMS” I answered shortly. Yes indeed such that the functions of a mobile phone, including iPhone. But for a precious iPhone, you certainly can expect more than that.
