    You are not speaking to Apple here, just other users like yourself.

    Yes, buy a new phone. Your phone is over 5 years old. It is not "new". It will not work with newer versions of the software. Accept the fact that you bought obsolete hardware.

    You are not speaking to Apple.

     

    Why did you buy a phone a few weeks ago that has been discontinued for over 3 years?

    Search in the App Store. Try Google.

    Here's a tip from another user that may help you:

     

    "I was running into the same problem trying to find apps for my daughters Iphone 3g running 4.2.1.  What I did was go to the Itunes store through Itunes on my PC, and then went to the bottom of the main page and clicked "Browse." On the browse page I selected, App Store, Games (category), Kids (subcategory), and then a list of apps appears below.  I sorted by date (oldest to newest) by right-clicking next to "price" and choosing "release date" on the menu that pops up. The date created field will then be showing, which you can click on to sort newest to oldest or oldest to newest.  I downloaded a bunch of free apps starting from the oldest (by name - you don't have much else to go on).  Of the 30 or so I added to my Itunes, about 27 of them were compatible with 4.2.1.  This is defintely not a perfect way of finding apps, but after spending a lot of time searching for a better way this was the best I could come up with."

    Here are some tools you can use to find apps that work on your older device:

     

    iOSSearch - search the iTunes store for compatible apps. (My recommendation.)

    Vintapps 3.1.3 - paid app.

    Apple Club - filter apps by iOS version.

     

    And, strictly for completeness, here's the original post that Varjak Paw quoted above.

     

    Note- since you have not upgraded to iOS 4.2.1 you won't be able to download some apps which may be listed as compatible with your iPhone.
