    It's a first gen iPhone. Been looking for one just to enjoy its beauty since my old one is a little beat up. The pics really highlight it's flaws, I'd rate this at at least an 8.5/10. Gave the seller $40 just because it's so nice, but he was only asking $35.

    Nice, I still have mine which is in slightly better condition than that one but the lock button doesn't work very well. Takes a few hard tries to get it to work. That was the only reason I upgraded to the 3GS the time I did (only a few months before the 4 came out). I've noticed the build on the originals was rock solid. The glass was great. I never had a screen protector for it and went naked and no scratches on it.

    I wish I still had mine. I remember when 4GB & 8GB was a lot. :)

    Very nice! I have mine in minty condition on display at my desk. Still love the look and feel of the first iPhone.

    Man I really regret selling mine. It had a cracked screen so it wasn't too hard to let go of. I need to look for one now!

    Nice! We own two original iPhone's, both 8GB, one in near mint condition and the other a little more scratched. I love the design of the 2G so much...it's what started it all. Hard to believe my love affair with iOS has been going on since 2007. :eek::apple: Also, gotta love how smoothly it runs 3.1.3.

    What a beauty. I wish I were a crafty engineer so I could customize an old 2G with a retina display or if I were really good I would stuff an entire 4S into it.

    The two-tone back is still the most beautiful back on an iPhone ever.

    No need to keep them all. Just keep the best iteration of every design/form factor. I have the original, 3GS and 4S.

    Wow! I have had every model but those photos make you realize just how far the design has evolved.

    Very nice score. Still a decent phone. My sister's runs iOS 3.1, the battery life is terrible (as to be expected), and the 2G is slow as molasses.

    But you gotta love it. Smartphones would not be where they are if not for this little piece of innovation.
