    Just curious. Does anyone still use an iPhone 2G as their everyday phone? Or am I alone there?

    I figured. :D Still, it is possible that there's someone else out there.

    Do you mean 3G? I know of at least one person in Louisiana who has one. My current phone was released in the same year as the 3G, if that counts for anything. :D

    Edit: Looking at your signature, I don't think you meant the 3G in which case your phone is older than mine. :eek:

    No, 2G, the one with silver aluminum with black on the back.

    I still have mine but it's more of a display on my desk.

    One of my co-workers uses his first gen iPhone between selling the previous model and buying the new one. I always hated those old versions of iOS. They were fine at first but they certainly didn't age well.

    The question is if you use it as your main phone, not a screen on your desk or a phone between transitions. Does anyone actually use it as your only/main phone daily?

    Why bother with a device so dated? You're literally missing out on everything iOS has to offer at this point.

    Well, if a computer/device does everything I need it to do, I don't spend the money on an upgrade. A newer device would be nice, but I don't need it. By the way, I'm still using a Mac from 2003 as my daily driver. ;)

    Hey, as someone using an iPad pro as their main device, I'm not going to knock it. To each their own and all that. But some upgrades are worth it, just for your own enjoyment's sake.

    I might upgrade to a 3GS soon, my current phone is getting a bit slow for web browsing. :D

    To be honest, I totally get it. My favorite Mac to this day is the 12" PowerBook G4.

    Not as my phone, but I still carry mine around as an iPod.

    I'd probably take one. My phone uses aren't that impressive, I don't rely on mine for any exciting apps or anything.

    Hell no man.
    Even though it was nice back then 9 years ago technology and my needs advanced far than what that device and the 2G Edge network has to offer.

    Ditto - still have mine (its the only one I've kept) and only use it very occasionally.
