I have been jailbroken before a few times on my iPhone 3G. I restored the iPhone also and had many error messages. My problem today is, I cannot sync any applications from the iPhone to the iTunes on my PC.

Did you try the transfer purchases from iPhone option listed under "File"?

I finally synced my applications to iTunes. I just had to choose sync selected apps, even when none were there.

My next question is, any suggestions for a case and a screen protector for iPhone 3gs when i get it? On my 3g i have the incase 2 piece slider and invisible shield. I can keep the incase slider and use it for 3gs, but ill have to get a new invisible shield.

Thanks for the update. Lots of good suggestions in the cases forum section. I personally use a Vaja case that has the screen covered.

It has the screen covered? Is it a front and back case that protects everything? Are the buttons useable? Can dust get anywhere on iPhone / screen?

It has a front and back. You must flip the front down to acces t he home button. Side button have a cutout and easy access. It is a form fitted shell covered with leather with a strap to hold the front flat when lowered. The flap is a hard shell as well for shock protection. It covers well but is not a SEALED case. The back corner is a bit exposed for the camera and a smaller exposed area at the top left as well. I have dropped the phone twice on concrete...not a scratch. I never have a problem with dust and I do remove the case to clean it but it never has dust inside when I remove it.

Scroll down to DCOMs' post. This is the case I have. FYI, it is an expensive case.

Ok. Thanks. Now I am having issues when syncing videos to iPhone. I want to get all of my windows media center recorded shows onto iPhone. I can get a few, but then iPhone is unable to be synced, like it times out. I changed the format of all the videos to iPhone format.

Any help?

It seems to be working better now that I plugged into a USB behind my PC. Do you know of anything I can do to get free movies/tv shows etc on iPhone?

I am asking where to get free videos and tv shows for iPhone.

Also, what is a good price to sell iPhone 3G? I have an offer for $260.

Can't help you with vids and tv. I only load music. Maybe you could start a new thread for that question. If you jailbreak and unlock the 3G you could get more, around $350. Check Ebay and see how much they are going for unlocked. $260 seems a fair price for a phone locked to ATT but I would check Ebay for pricing on locked phones as well.

All I'm going to do is jailbreak the iPhone 3GS. I am selling my iPhone 3G for $250.

Should I go to Best Buy immediately after I get 3GS to get the invisible shield put on screen, so there wont be any dust?

Or does anybody have any suggestions for sweet awesome cases / shields? That I can get at best buy etc?

I personally don't use a screen shield. Never had one on my 3G either and there was no dust. I don't keep my phone in my pocket so I guess it is a personal choice and how you carry your phone around. My screen IS protected by my case.

Ok. Well, I may go take 3gs to get invis shield put on. And either go buy another case, or keep the one I have.
