    How often do you guys rotate your iphones? I think I'm gonna start the 5s/4S soon just for nostalgia. I can't get the 3GS/1st gen to work with nano SIM cards, ahh any advice? Yes I've tried the noose converters. They don't work.

    While I might dust off the ole' 4s every 6 months or so and admire the design, there's no point to me in using a slower device when I have a perfectly capable 5s already activated.

    Guess I just don't have that nostalgia for phones the way you are describing. Once I upgrade the old phone I had doesn't really serve any purpose more than as a emergency backup.

    I swap it every now and then to get the feel of the old form factor. I agree the speed does suffer tho, we get so spoiled with the technologically superior models.

    Yeah, its a shame that Apple (and all smartphone manufacturers really) are pricks and block us from downgrading our OS version like they should allow, if they did then the speed wouldn't suffer on the old devices as much :(

    I had to use an iPhone 3GS and a Samsung S2 whilst my iPhone 5S got repaired.
    I had an adapter to go from nano to micro sim. I also had a "normal" (not credit card) sized sim that had a laser-cut pop-out micro-sim in it.
    I put the nano-micro adapter inside the micro-mini sim. Worked okay for me.

    Edited to add pics.
    Left to right:
    Mini, Micro, Micro-nano adapter, nano.
    Second pic, nano in micro-nano adapter in mini

    I have all those adapters... It's just the nano doesn't work with the regular sim

    Hi OP! I just started collecting older iPhones! I have the 2g, 3gs, 4 and 5s! I do like powering them on and playing with the old operating systems, but I would NEVER use one of them as my daily phone, not even the 4.
