So I am having this debate in my mind. I bought an original iPhone as a collectors item. It's mint condition, open box, but never used. If you look up the serial on Apple's website it says it's never been activated and it's stuck on the activation screen. I looked up the serial number to find out that it was manufactured the the 27th week of 2007. That's July 2-9th. The iPhone was first released on July 11th so it's a first production. I am debating on whether or not to activate it. I know it was a different process to activate back then, cant just plug into itunes. I'm worried on one hand that if I activate it, it will lose value. On the other hand I am worried if I don't activate it now Apple may close the process required to activate it in the future and it may be stuck on the activation screen for good. What do you think? And does anyone know anything about activating an original iPhone?
