    i am about 2 purchase a iphone 3g s 32 gb from a friend of a friend and need some help. i have been hearing a lot about possible fakes and was wondering if u guys could help me a lil. MY MAIN QUESTION IS ON THE BACK OF THE 3G "S" DOES IT SAY 3G "S", i dont wanna buy a phone that is a 3g but the person selling says its a 3gs.

    anything else would be super regarding differences in the 3g and 3gs that i should look at. thanks.

    Hey buddy...i can understand how painful it can be if it turns out to be fake.
    the best way to find out if it is a genuine iPhone 3GS and not 3g is....by using one of its features which the 3g does not have.....use the VOICE CONTROL feature....press and hold the home button on your iphone 3gs and the voice control will activate...and start giving some commands...if its there...that means its a genuine iPhone 3gs....
    do let me know if it works
    PS...Voice control feature is not available on the iPhone 3g...even after the OS3.0 update

    suggest you dont remove it urself, take professional help if required...or else...check youtube...there are many videos up there on how to remove it.
    BE WARNED...IT IS VERY RISKY UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT U R DOING
