    Bought just after price drop, as 1.0.2. Unlocked.
    Virginized and Updated to 1.1.1. Unlocked.
    Soft-upgraded to 1.1.3 (nates). Too many bits broken, so reverted to 1.1.2, unlocked.
    Upgraded to 1.1.3 and ziphone jb, anysim unlock.

    With plenty of restores in there whenever I stuffed up, but that's half the fun :D

    ok here goes,

    bought a 1.1.2 8gb iphone about 2 months ago, while also ordered a 8gb 1.1.2 iphone via apple.com/uk
    loved it and decided to keep the second iphone for my g/f, noticed a mark on my iphone and decided to switch iphones ;)
    my girlfriend didn't want her iphone until her contract runs out therefore I sold the iphone and got a trip to dublin for our 2 year aniversary.
    upgraded my phone to 1.1.3 and then the 16gb model came out, sold my 8gb and bought a 16gb model


    ANNNNND Breath :p

    How about we make a new thread posting all the phone numbers we've each dialed on your iPhone since we purchased our it, then we could cross reference and see if we know any of the same people!

    After enduring a blisteringly cold winter in the Himalayas, the iPhone managed to hitch a lift in a rusting 4x4 with some drunken hikers to Bratislava. After hedonistically indulging in some after hours charger-in-socket action, it was discovered by some gangsters who were flying to the states later that day with their ill-gotten booty. A villain named Cecil McGrew stole the iPhone and took it on board their flight - however the deft gadget managed to escape from Cecil's pocket and steal a parachute. It jumped from the plane while it was flying above Manchester. After a slow and turbulent descent, the iPhone landed on a street corner where it was found by me.

    This is my iPhone backstory.
