    Just wanted to get this thread out there - to anyone who has a sealed, still shrink-wrapped, never opened, never activated first generation iphone 4GB, 8GB, or 16GB ...

    If you have such a phone I would be interested in "collecting" it from you. I have a family member who likes nostalgic things, and I like making this family member smile, so shoot me a PM if you have one.

    Even if you stumble on this thread years down the line.

    Thanks much!

    Ooh, that should prove tough to find since all 1st gen models were activated in store!

    Opened my 4Gig to unlock and use - almost bought another to keep wrapped but $300 at the time was a bit much to invest - but who would've known?

    You know, if you find an original iPhone, you can take it to the Apple Store for a battery replacement ($79) and since it's too hard to do they will just switch it out for a new iPhone 2G like that in store.
