    Mine still powers up and I use it occasionally to listen to music at my desk and to just exercise it a bit.

    Yes. Unfortunately I have a little crack in the screen. Bummer.

    I miss that UI, I wish Apple would allow themes in iOS and have that as a theme.

    iPhone 1 even immune to USB killer, while latest overpriced MacBook instantly dies after applying USB killer.
    Just sayin'.

    I didn't think it was physically possible to rock an iPhone 1 still.

    Speed. Features. Storage. Thickness. Camera. Battery life. Etc. etc. Need I go on?

    Its nice to bring back memories and show how far smartphone tech has evolved.
    But I wouldn't be able to use it right now as my every day device.

    I still have one in great condition. I used a sim adaptor recently and was able to use my iPhone 1 for an hour or so until it was not fun anymore.

    Neither did I. Strange seeing that photo and how far the iPhone has come.

    I have three of them! None with cracked screens or too much abuse and all function perfectly. One is an early production build (battery still lasts amazingly long still) and one's a late build right before the 3G came out.

    There are SO many small things that collectively would make us pull our hair out using an iPhone 1 and an older iOS.

    Still have mine. The back is worn but screen is in perfect shape.
    Great piece of tech history. I still have notes from 2007 on it. It still feels smooth when scrolling. After almost 10 years the home button has no issues at all.
    Its ironic that on some of the later models the home button would have issue in less than a year

    The original iPhone and the iPhone 4 series were iconic pieces. The 3, 5, and 6/7 series look uninspired.

    Why are people still using "rocking" to mean using?

    How many use this model with cellular service? I'm seeing them used as iPods, yet not as iPhones.

    That response is as intelligent as it's usage in this and many other threads.
