    So Apple said they stopped making the original iPhone after 6 million units. So what is going to happen later on down the road if our iPhone is beyond fixable and restoring... are they going to have to eventually give us the new unit?

    I, for one, would not like this because I like my current iPhone all its accessories.

    As with any product, they would give you the next model up.


    You might not want it, but thats the policy.


    This is not an iPhone only issue...ever company and product faces this issue at some point in time

    Good point zap,

    I just think this is going to be quite an issue, because if we have to eventually take the newer iPhone, that means we have to accept the new $35/month data plan for it.

    I'm sure its going to cost Apple to repair 1st-Gen iPhones because of the materials ($ metal back > $ plastic back), ($ older chipsets > $ new chipsets).

    Well, I guess I better get ready for the day my iPhone chokes and I might need to suck up the newer, and not so much greater, iPhone 2.0
