Talking Iphone 5 Signed By Steve Wozniak

Got my iPhone 5 signed today by Steve Wozniak today
Anyone have any idea as to how much it is worth or how much it will be in the future?

@Appl3FTW He actually signed the phone I always kept the original plastic the phone comes with on the back but lifted it up so he could sign it then put it back on. I keep my phone in a lifeproof case.

When I see someone getting a celebrity or famous person to sign a valuable item, I just wonder what would happen if they messed up.

How much are used iPhone 5's going for? Add $0.02 for his sig and there's your value! Cool for you but I wouldn't hold your breath for a "big" return on it.

I was going to say the same! I love the signature, but when looking all I can focus on are those damn bubbles!

@aPple nErd-Yes I got it signed today. He came to my university to give a talk and I met him afterwards and he signed my phone.

And yes I would be driven crazy by the air bubbles lol but I keep my phone in a lifeproof case so the back is covered similar to the otterbox so I never see them.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the phone broke and you tried to get a replacement and Apple wouldn't honor it? lol

Sorry, I say very little value because Woz didn't have anything to do with making the phone. If he had added, "I like the Galaxy III better" (which he does) that may had added some value.

Never write on an Apple device. I don't care who's signing it.

Woz is really not worth anything, but it's a cool incident... i see it if Cook or Ive signs is that would be worth something.

Yeh, Woz isn't that rare. He speaks regularly where I live. Still cool to have though.

Ooh, getting Ive to sign an Apple product of mine would be really cool. That would be like an artist signing their work.

I'm sure it'll be worth a little more but I'd probably just keep it.

No.

If i'd have to guess, if the OP was to auction it on ebay with a $1 starting price and was somehow able to verify its authenticity, I'd say he would get at least 1.5x-2x the RRP of the particular model he has.

I also met president Obama in 2009 for recognition of my outstanding contribution in the field of valuation.

The OP's iPhone is worth 1.5x-2x its RRP.
