Turn Your iPhone 3g Into an Android Phone

Turn your old iPhone into an Android.

Do you have an old iPhone 3G that you still use and are curious about switching to Android? Well, why not load it up with Android to see if you like it before signing a contract?

There's a new way for you to install Android on your iPhone 3G without even having to plug it into a computer.

First, you need to jailbreak your phone, which isn't too difficult. The you install an app called Bootlace and let it do the heavy lifting for you. You'll end up with an iPhone running Android 2.2, something not many people have. If you like it, you can upgrade to a newer Android phone. If you don't, install the old iOS on it. Easy peasy, right?
