    nope.. the 2g is slightly different shaped on the back - they require their own cases..

    It depends on the case. They aren't going to fit perfectly, but some of the rubberized cases fit decently well. The only problem is that the sensors are in different places, so if the case covers up that top part of the front of the phone, you will have issues with that. I used my old case for about a week while my new case was on the way. Its not ideal but some cases will be okay. Thats just my experience.

    The 3G is larger than the first generation iphone. So it depends on the style and type of case. I have some 2G cases that my 3G fits in, it is a tight fit usually. If you are asking about pouch type cases or sleeves you are probably ok. But any type of molded case will be large and not fit properly.

    No. Friend had a first gen iPhone, bought a 3G case...did not fit at all (It was a Belkin Silicone Case) It was too big, so I think that the 3G cases would be too big for the first gen.

    The Dimensions of the Original iPhone and the 3G are slightly different, some iPhone "O" cases have been reportedly fitted with the 3G unfortunately if you switch this from a 3G to an iPhone "O" (Original) this is not the case, since the 3G is taller and thinner than the "O" so if you want to get a case for a 2G"O" iPhone might as well buy one thats actually designed for it, i dont recommend spending your money in a case that wont fit, its like if your shoe size was 7 and you buy a 9 size them shoes will feel as boats on you, i can picture my son who is 2 years old putting his Daddy's shoes on haha:P is the same case with them iPhone Gens, either way buy a case that fits or stay naked, i know that with so many cool designs for the 3G, all iPhone O owners want one but really it's not a good idea, sorry Dude, i wish we had better news for you, but ain't gonna happen.
