    Default Few questions about iPod Touch 3G

    I am planning to buy an iPod Touch 3G 32 GB.

    1. How do I identify that the iPod I am buying is the latest version i.e. 3G (I mean is it written on the case?)
    2. I heard it has a scratch resistant screen. Is it true? Do I need a screen protector too?
    3. Will iPod 3G be getting the new 4.0 OS which has multitasking?
    4. Is their anything such as iPod 3GS ?
    5. What is the use of Jailbreaking iPod? Is it the same as hacking a phone? i.e. to install unsigned apps?
    6. Are their other things I should see to before buying it?

    Actually I wanted to buy iPhone 3GS as I will not need to carry a separate phone. But as far as I know a genuine iPhone comes locked to a network i.e. it cannot accept another sim card. And also read that its not safe to Jailbreak a locked iPhone. So I am gonna settle for iPod 3G. If you have views on this please reply.

    Thanks in advance.

    !. Well whoever sells it to you (private or retail) should identify it correctly, if not go to settings General about and check the model no
    Mine is MC086BT which is 3G if in doubt google it
    The packaging on mine does not say "3G" but the barcode sticker does have the model number on it
    2.I used a screen protector from new so no idea how good the unprotected screen is. Screen protector is easy peasy to fit the back protector very fiddly to fit smoothly round the corners
    3. "Multitasking will be supported for iPhone 3GS and iPod touch G3 (both released in 2009) but not previous generations like iPhone 2G or iPhone 3G due to hardware limitations."
    4.3GS refers to 3G telephone connection so obviously not
    5.Look at Cydia and Rock (or an ipod touch forum)huge collection of apps, themes, features etc that that Apple don't approve of
    6.Up to you what your needs, budget etc are
    As to jailbreaking a locked phone search the forums

    P.S
    My 3G is on a Blackrain jailbreak which has to be reinstalled if the batteries go flat but that has never happened to me in 6 months of use

    An untethered jailbreak has been confirmed for my model but not released yet

    I jailbroke mine as soon as i got it wasn't an option for me to stick with Apple's *************** limitations

    @ziggy1001

    Thanks a lot.

    But I cannot open the iPod touch in the shop and check its model right their. So I needed some way to confirm that the iPod touch I buy is of the latest version.

    As far as the budget is concerned the prices do not have much difference. Its just the data plan that we need to take. I already use vodafone so not much of a problem with that.

    Well any reputable retailer that can't tell you exactly what you're buying is..... well incompetent

    Ok if it was $50 in a garage sale that's fair enough

    As i said the barcode sticker on mine has the model no (this is on the outside of the box)

    Top left on sticker mine says MC086BT/A
