Getting an iPhone / smartphone for the first time! Is ebay/Craigslist an okay place to start?

I am finally joining the tech world and getting a smartphone. Where would you go to buy one? I am not picky and just want to be sure that it has a camera, isn't too old, and works well. I know that they can be super expensive and would like to save by getting a used phone.
My BF is much more savvy than I am re: phones, and I can lean on him to help with stuff. I know you have to jailbreak the phone, right? I ultimately want to use a pay-as-you-go plan rather than an ongoing contract with a carrier.
What should I look out for? What are the best models for someone like me? All advice is welcome!
