    So, my birthday is coming up, and I can't decide if I want to buy an old iPhone 2G, or a 5th gen iPod touch.

    I'm leaning towards the iPhone as it will be worth more money in the future, but at the same time, I want the touch for its thinness of the iPod.

    Well the 5th gen iPod is still going to have some practical use, an iPhone 3G (assuming what you meant) at this point is mostly a collectible. Do you want a working device or a display piece?

    I don't believe so. It's right up his alley if you look at his signature. The iPhone 2G is simply the designation given to the original iPhone since it only had 2G (EDGE) capability and the iPhone 3G expanded on it.

    I'd almost get one if it was mint with the box just to say I had an original iPhone. Though the iPod touch 5 will do significantly more, it'll be out dated soon (still runs the A5 chip) and isn't anything special.

    What are your intended uses? And would it be better to save the money and invest in something better for the future? Questions you might ask yourself.

    I collect Apple stuff, so it would be an expansion to my collection, and since it uses a Wolfson Chip, I'd use it for music aswell. Plus, in the long run, the iPhone would be worth money in the future.

    Plus, I've learned that if you look hard enough, you'll find a diamond in the rough. (A really nice one for cheap)

    Unless you have a sealed original iPhone, it's not going to be worth squat in the future. Certainly isn't going to appreciate in value.
