HT201269 Can I use my old iPhone 3GS after I upgraded to a 4S?

I upgraded from an iPhone 3GS to an iPhone 4S, but i am keeping the old 3GS for my son to use as an iPod touch.  Can I sync both the old and new phone to the same computer?

Yes, see http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3406.  You can also sync both to the same computer.  iTunes will recognize them as separate devices and you can set separate sync settings for each.  This may be of interest too: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1495.

  • How can I use my old iPhone 3GS as just an iPod.

    I updated my old iphone 3GS to iOS 5.1 and now I can't use it as just an ipod. It won't sync without a SIM card. I don't need one. Can someone help me out?

    See http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3406.
    Edit:  You'll need a SIM card from the carrier it is locked to.  Doesn't have to be an activated SIM card but needs to be in the phone to re-activate it.  If you don't have one, ask you carrier if they have a deactivated one you can use.

  • Can I use my old iPhone 3GS to buy a new iPhone with any discount?

    I would like to know if an apple have any program to change old iphone for a new iphone.
    iphone 3GS to an iphone 5S.

    Apple has a program (run by a 3rd party) where they give a gift card for some phones but I just checked the 3GS and the value there is zero. http://www.apple.com/recycling/gift-card/
    Verizon has a similar program and the value there is $7. https://www.trade-in.vzw.com/
    You'd might do better selling it yourself.

  • I want to use my old iPhone 3GS as an Ipod. Nothing is working?

    I'm tired of wasting battery on my iPhone 4 to listen to music, so I wanted to use my old iPhone 3GS as an iPod. I read you had to have a sim card inserted in the phone, regardless if it's activated. So I put the old one inside, but when I connect it to my computer, it won't charge, or sync with iTunes. It's definitely not my charger because both of my phones charge in a wall outlet, and my iPhone 4 charges through the computer. Just not the iPhone 3GS.... I'm going on vacations with long car rides and would like to use this. Help please!

    Can I use my old IPhone as an Ipod, and download songs from I Tunes?

    Sure, it will work just fine that way. Leave the deactivated sim in the phone, as you'll need it should you ever have to restore or upgrade the software on the phone. You can't activate any GSM iPhone without a valid sim in the phone.

    why can't i activate my iphone 3gs after upgrading it to ios 6?
    It says,
    ''There is no sim card installed in the iphone you are attempting to activate''
    Thanks for your help in advance!

    There are several common causes for this problem:
    Your security software (Antivirus, firewall, router settings) is blocking access to gs.apple.com, Apple's activation servers. Try temporarily disabling your security applications on your computer.
    You have a redirect in your hosts file that defines a different IP address for gs.apple.com. you must delete all references to gs.apple.com from your hosts file (c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, or /etc/hosts on a Mac)
    Your phone is jailbroken or otherwise hacked.

    what can I use my Droid Charge for, after I upgrade to the new Samsung Galaxy S2 for Verizon on September 8?
    I guess it can run fine on Wi-Fi and become a media player.... or is there a market for 1-month-old Droid Charge phones?
    How much trade-in value can I get from VZW or BestBuy or Amazon?
    Thanks!

    When did you upgrade to 4.1? 4.1 is no longer signed by Apple. It's no longer possible to (legitimately) install 4.1.
