    If you want to see the first movie (as far as I know) with a co-starring iPhone, download Journeyman, a new TV show in which the main character, played by Kevin McKidd (Lucius Vorenus, in Rome) uses an iPhone all the time... It was funny to see that last night... The show is available for free at the iTunes store, and lasts about 45 minutes...

    The funny thing is that the first time the iPhone appears, it's shown flipped vertically, with the home button in top, in a position that it doesn't work in real life (at least, mine doesn't).

    But, anyway, it was cool to see that... Here are some screenshots, taken from the show...

    I have not really wanted to watch the show, funny though that it's on NBC.

    That probably why he can't get service in the first pic. :D

    well it was 1989 or so, not very likely to work then.

    Yeah I wouldn't call it a great show, but it's sort of interesting.

    The iPhone is almost used like a time travel detector -- what no service? I must not be in 2007 kind of a deal.

    Yeah, no GSM in the US then....

    First GSM net in the world launched in 1991.

    The funny part was that, at one point, it looked like a Blackberry on the back side of the phone, but then when it showed the phone interface, it was an iPhone. I guess NBC did not want to advertise for Apple too much. :)

    Back in the early '70's, I once saw Dr. Who (then played by Jon Pertwee), use an empty cassette box as some sort of scientific device.

    Now that takes some balls!

    Maybe a blind man missed it. It was also mentioned in the first post, so you're late to the party. :D

    Pilot

    Actually, despite it was the pilot episode, the character played by “Vorenus” keeps using the iPhone in the newer episodes...

    P.S. Each episode costs $1,99 in iTunes...

    If it was 1989, how was there an iPhone there?

    If you watch the show, you'll also notice that when the character hits the buttons on the iPhone, the sounds it makes are completely wrong! Total post-production effects. I wonder why he was holding it upside down though.. mistake, or were they trying to hide that it was the iPhone? Either way, all the images on it are post-production anyway.

    The least they could do was actually use it as an iPhone....
