    iPhone 2G? Seriously? Why not ditch that thing and update to the 3GS which will be inexpensive and stellar improvement over what you have?

    Lol. I would sell my iPhone 5 for the Original iPhone.
    I had it back in 2007 and upgrading to the iPhone 3G was the worst decision of my life :)
    It's a great phone with the best design.

    I still have my original, but the battery is shot. It just sits in a box with very very little wear and tear.

    If the battery is dead, take it to Apple and ask them to do a battery replacement for £55.

    Since they can't replace the battery, they'll replace the phone - so you'll get a brand new original iPhone in it's place (yes they still carry them!).

    oh awesome. I did not think that they still carried them....I thought I remembered reading they stopped a few years ago.

    Nope - it's 6 years since the last time they were sold. So they'll be available until early 2014.
