    my first iPhone was also a 3gs. I loved it the most as well.

    After that i had the 4s, the 5 and now the 5s.

    I am really excited for the curved edges to come back to the iPhone, i really don't like the boxy feel of the 5s. I think the 5c feels perfect with the rounded edges.

    My first was a gift. The 3GS. Really liked that phone, although it was used only on WiFi because AT&T was never my carrier. Gave it away earlier this year to a friend who needed a phone.

    My first outright purchase by myself of an iPhone was the iPhone 5. I could have upgraded a year earlier but I did not want and made every effort to avoid the iPhone 4 and 4S.

    I absolutely love my iPhone 5. I love the edges and the fact that it's black/slate. And that it's metal and not plastic.

    Of course, because I really love this phone Apple killed it in favor of the 5c. :(

    Mine was the original iPhone. I was first in line at the AT&T store in Lanham, MD on June 29th, 2007and the first to walk out with one. The rest of the line applauded like crazy. I'm such a nerd.

    iPhone 3G I bought for $300 off of Craigslist back in 2009, a little after the 3GS came out.

    Sometime in 2011, I bought a new non-OEM backplate, battery, and display to try and restore it to like-new condition. Took the phone apart completely and completely failed at the backplate restore. The screws got all mixed up, and they were so tiny that I gave up. All parts sat in a plastic bag until 2013, when I threw them in the trash. Wish I wouldn't have...

    My first iPhone was the 3GS. I then had an iPhone 4, then 5. I'm currently using a 5S which is my favorite out of all the iPhones I've owned.

    My first was the original iPhone in 2007. I've upgraded every year, getting the new models on the day they're released. As one might expect, my favorite so far is the 5S. That'll likely change on the 19th (assuming that's the release date). :cool:

    I got a 3GS when ATT started their $49 offer. I couldn't believe I could get an iPhone for ~$50. I went down the next day after seeing the commercial and bought it:)

    My first was the original. It's also my favorite of the bunch. I've had them all except for the 4S and 5.

    My first was the 3GS. I liked it, but liked the subsequent models better. I think that the all-white 4S may be my favorite so far.

    I had a BlackBerry curve in the same state! After an unsuccessful housing change it ended up in a plastic bag until it fina... well... it was a BB so it didn't really even deserve to be in the plastic bag by the time it was thrown out.

    I wonder if there's a big pile of partially dissasembled phones in plastic bags at some landfill somewhere? Probably not, but I bet it happens a lot with moderately older phones.

    The 2G is, was, and always will be the king. It changed phones (for me, and a lot of others obviously) forever. The 3GS is a close second, followed by the 4 not too far behind. The 5 was awesome for what it was, but didn't have the same "wow" factor that the 2G/4 had.

    Love them all, so it doesn't really matter. The only one I didn't spend extensive time with was the 3G (being on T-Mobile, the 3G was pointless).

    Here's to hoping the 6 has a little of the 4's magic.

    My first iPhone was the 3G. And to be honest, it was my least problematic iPhone. Both the 4 and the 5 have given me some sort of hardware issues.

    My first was the iPhone 4. I loved that phone. My second was the iPhone 5. I love this phone. My third will be the iPhone 6. The novelty of the iPhone has worn off on me, but I still wouldn't use any other smart phone.

    Although the gitty feeling and butterflies aren't there anymore, Apple still makes the best Smartphone. My daily interactions with customers include helping them pair their phones to their new car stereo and so I've seen, touched, and played with all types of phones. I'll never go away from my iPhone ;).
