I have the first iPhone on AT&T, I want to get the 3g and give my old phone to my boyfriend who is also on AT&T. First, will he be able to use it with his sim card? Two, will we be able to have two iPhones set up on one PC? (we only have one with internet). Three mine current iPhone is jailbroke, is there a good j/b for 3g yet? Thank you to anyone who can help with this!

iTunes can manage multiple iPhones just fine. And iPhone 3gs are easily jailbroken with Pwnage Tool or QuickPwn. Not sure how the Sim card stuff works, though. My guess it will work fine with his old sim as long as you upgrade his plan to an iPhone data plan.

As long as he has one of the newer AT&T SIM cards, he'll be able to insert his SIM into the iPhone and then activate it through iTunes.

well he's not really interested in getting the internet just yet so he just wants to use the calling part of it. We did put his sim card in and it wanted me to connect it to iTunes.

if you do that, be very careful about using EDGE for any data. You can incur a huge bill of overages. Also, be aware that your visual voicemail may not work without an iPhone data plan.

So does that mean that he would still get the internet but just would have to pay for it as he uses it? So I can just set it up through iTunes and he will keep his number and stuff?

Yes, i believe so, but he data charges will be VERY expensive.

Yep, but like someone else said it gets expencive but you can always get him a data plan.
