    I'm a bit of an iPhone collector. I have all the generations of the iPhone and I love to showcase them on my bookshelf. Does anyone know of any nice frame or container to put all my iPhones? That way they won't get dusty and it's protected. Thanks! :)

    I too have starting doing this, all the ones I have gotten people have just given me! So I wouldn't mind finding something to put them in. If you find something or anyone else knows of something let me know!

    Just check out your local Department store, Target, Walmart, K-Mart, or a local place or whatever.

    They normally have cases for pretty much everything, a small Trophy Case could be your best bet.

    I use Hobby Lobby to frame most of my stuff.

    They have all sorts of shadow boxes, display cases, etc...

    You may be better off looking in your area for local framers/ mounters.

    You could also take a look at Gaylord. They sell museum/ library quality display solutions.

    This is sort of a related question: for the long term storage of iphones (especially those for collecting) would it be better to remove the battery and store it separately?

    Depends. Are you collecting for personal satisfaction or to sell at a later date?

    I would think if you're the latter, IMO, the 'damage' would significantly affect the resale value.
