Well im giving my brother my iPhone 3g so how should he activate it? I know it has a built in SIM card but if he syncs it with iTunes on his computer wont it just reactivate my number? Please inform me on how this works because I forgot because I activated it at the Apple store.

Also if he hooks it up to iTunes for the first time on his computer will it activate my number? If it does how can I avoid this?

Why are you getting rid of you 3G?

Oh thank you for the replies. I guess i heard the Apple sales rep incorrectly. I thought i heard him say the sim card is built in but I guess he meant it already came with a sim card haha. Thanks guys!

I think you should not sell you iPhone, all of the email problems are getting fixed with the 2.0.2 update. Apple is not perfect and they are working are getting it 100%. Stay with the iPhone.
