    It's hiding :rolleyes: Is there any way to edit it in as an option? Can't seem to find any sort of "Edit Poll" button

    You'll have to ask a moderator to edit the poll for you. Click the report button next to your first post and ask for it to be added.

    Still have mine. Sometimes I will use it as my Sonos remote or when a friend or family member comes over they can use it for surfing.

    Still have one but never use it. Sitting in a box in a drawer of my desk. Think I'll pull it out and see if it still works.

    Nope, mostly because I never owned one. I waited until apple came out with the 3G model :)

    My 12 year old son sometimes uses it to play games. Other than that, it just sits in a drawer.

    I still have mine in perfect shape. I have it sitting nicely on a stand, atop my desk.

    If it wasn't for the fact that many apps no longer support 3.1.3, I might use it more often. For a while we were using it as a device to play Pandora on the living room speakers, but have since built a home theater PC. Needless to say, the iPhone just sits in the drawer now. I still keep it for times when I go someplace, such as a theme park, where I am afraid I might drop/lose/damage a phone.

    I never had the original but I bought the 3G when it came out and used it until a few months ago. It just got too slow with the software updates and the pathetically slow and unreliable AT&T service. So I switched to a RAZR, about which I have mixed emotions.

    I still carry my 3G with me on trips (I work in the airlines) and it is used all the time as my alarm and iPod and occasionally for wi-fi service. And to remind me to get an iPhone when I am eligible for the subsidized device again.

    Miss the iPhone, but the unreliability of the calls and internet let me to switch carriers and devices (long story there... I wanted the 4S but couldn't arrange delivery so I ended up with another device). Stuck with my 3G for a long time though.

    I sold mine a while ago, but wish I would have held on to it for nestalgia.
