    Am I the only one that would love to take an iPhone back in time...just to show off? I'm not even talking ages, 10 years max so that people already have mobile phones, but an iPhone would simply seem mind blowing.

    Sorry I know this thread is a bit weird, but I just started wondering having read the "iPhone uses 10 year old camera technology" thread. Actually, come to think of it, imagine how amazing the iPhone was just 2 years ago when Steve took to the stage and introduced it.

    Assuming that a cellular network would exist wherever you went (and that you could travel in time :D), which point in time would you like to have an iPhone with you?

    Have fun being burned at the stake! :p

    I'd probably do the same thing too, just as long as I could get back easily and quickly.

    Ok, but you realise the implications of having an iPhone: that 'magic' would easily get you burned at a stake.

    Edit: damn, beaten.

    May I ask why? Just to see Rome in general? Take a few pics, email them home etc lol.

    I would take it to Shea Stadium 15th of August 1965 just so I could watch the Beatles play, I would just love that!!
    And I think John Lennon would have enjoyed the iPhone!

    I know, that's why I put the :p in it, so you could tell I was joking. After playing Fallout 3, I might also like to go back to the 50s and show people the iPhone. Just because of the way most people thought the future would be.

    I'd take it back to 29 June 2007 around 3pm or so and wave it around in front of the line at any given AT&T or Apple store in the US, then run away.

    Or how about on the day the iPhone was announced, and show it to everyone at the show?

    That might be a good choice as well. But the kicker is that you just wave it around to get attention, then run like hell. If I remember correctly, everyone was too busy glaring into a glass box at macworld in 2007.

    Well, show off. Always wanted to see Rome. I'm interested in History, and thats when Jesus was alive, so I'd like to meet him.

    I would take it back to June 28th, a day before the release.


    You know, it's quite something. When people were amazed, especially at the photo app. The ability to swipe between pictures and pinch in and out to zoom....

    please if i had made the iphone half the app store would be like cydia or at least not so exspensive

    copy paste mms customizable backrounds would be incorporated from day one

    it would all be simple to use but with the option to completely customize the look of your phone.

    oh and if i had actualy ripped steve jobs off as i had planned to you would have no choice but to buy mine cause he would not be alloud to make it via copyright pattent infringment

    I'm in the works of building a time machine. And since you gave me the idea, we could be partners ;) 50-50. What do you say?

    I'd show my 13 year old self the iPhone. He'd cream himself.

    Take it back when Steve Jobs was a kid. Show him and make sure that he includes copy/paste and MMS when he rolls it out in the future.
