    Waiting for my iPhone 6 Plus, I switched out to my original iPhone, with 3.1.3 whited00r on it, and I'm pretty impressed with it. The phone's battery is still going strong, it's like a brick with build quality unmatched yet by future phones, and it works great as a texting and phoning, well, phone. The only downside is that pretty much nothing works well on it. I do still have original Angry Birds and Angry Birds Seasons loaded on it!

    So, to all of those haters fighting over the iPhone 6 vs iPhone 6 Plus, go back to your roots and see how awesome the upgrade is from an OG iPhone. I can't wait for Friday! :cool:

    Mostly unrelated, but I loved the plastic form and shell on the 3G models.

    Still a nice phone. When I look at the 6 and 6+ I see a lot of the design language that was used in the original iPhone.

    Yeah, I still have mine, and it's active on my plan. It's a nice phone even today.

    I LOL when I see the huge pixels.

    I have fun pulling it out in my classroom full of students who are looking at me confused. It's only going to be 4-5 more years before everyone in my class will be younger than my iPhone OG :D

    Figured this would be a bit more fun :)

    I'm actually surprised it still works on the AT&T network. My area still has EDGE, which I think will surely be replaced soon. However, right now, I'm pleased my iPhone is still supported ;)

    Good stuff lasts! My iPhone journey started with the 3G, and that phone was built like a tank.

    You must not have had a white iPhone 3G... I did, and mine was riddled with cracks that were not caused by any damage I did to it. The plastic on those things was crap. I'm so glad Apple moved away from it.

    Was the Music app really called "iPod" on those old models? I started with a 2008 Touch, which I think had OS 1.1, and it was called Music on there (just like on my 4S).

    I think my 3G had iPod as well. As if the hardware is the only thing to drastically change. That OS looks incredibly dated now.

    On stock 3.1.3 it was called "iPod", but since I installed whited00r on mine, they changed it to "Music". Also, iPod had video integrated into it, unlike today where "Music" and "Video" are separate. I liked that better, actually, since I don't store Videos in a format that Apple likes on my iPhone.
