Now that the iPhone 5 is out, how many of your are still getting by with the original?
And crickets... the thing is 5 years old. Most likely, the people that frequent a message board like this, are not going to be using a phone that is 5 years old.
Sorry to burst your bubble.
My friend rocked the original until the 4s came out. It was a PITA, no MMS ... no fun drunk pics from me!
I use it for my international back up phone and for nostalgic purposes. Its starting to show its age now..but i like the feel of the back aluminum. Feels solid in your hand
I want to get one on CL or Ebay just for the nostalgia. Oh how I do miss that pixelated screen and the 10 seconds it took for all the icons to "assemble" on the dashboard when you unlock it. *memories*
I was using it as my backup phone for quite some time. My girlfriend then updated her iPhone 4 to a 5, and her old 4 is used as a backup. Was about to attempt to sell the original iPhone online, but figured there was no use; gave it away to somebody that actually is using it for their everyday phone, and they love me for giving it to them (aren't I such a good guy?)
I still have mine but haven't turned it on in years.. might have to dig it out for old time's sake!
I just retired my original iPhone to a backup phone after receiving my new iP5 on 9.21. It was a good 5+ years. It was always housed in a case and looks brand new.
I finally upgraded because my banking and financial apps were no longer being updated/supported. Having noted that, I feel like I just walked out of a cave, in a manner of speaking. The iP5 is absolutely amazing. Considering having had used my iP2g for such a long period of time, this iP5 is a whole new iPhone experience. My wife laughed at me for the first couple days, as I was rediscovering the iPhone.
Wow the original iPhone never got MMS, even through a software update?
That's sad, considering phones from 2005-2006 already supported MMS and the original iPhone came out in 2007. What was Apple thinking?
I wouldn't mind one as a collector's item. I also have SIM adapters so I could pop my nano SIM from my iPhone 5 into it and use it if I wanted to. It would be a bit of a step down though.
I would hold on to that original iPhone...especially since it is in such good condition.
No one. Do you know why? No one uses the term 'rock' as a verb. Stop using it.
Lol, MMS. Everyone blamed the iPhone for not supporting it, and once iOS finally did, the technology had become obsolete. Does anyone ever use it?
I still have mine but the kids play with it. the screen on it is still perfect, not a single scratch even without a screen protector.
Huh? Whenever you text someone a photo, you're using MMS.
I use it all the time. Nearly everyone I know does.
I would love to see a picture of it! I had it and I really can't remember what it looked like or what it did vs. what it didn't do.
SMS = text
MMS = picture/video
I really hope he wasn't making a case for iMessage...
i still use my 3G as an iPod but my original died a few years back, thinking of buying one that works just to have
I didn't think about iMessage... But even then, that only works between iOS >4 devices.
I have plenty of friends with Android handsets and Blackberries; photos to/from them come MMS.
i guess i do if i send a pic to someone who doesn't have an iphone. How else do you send pics? I mean, to another phone outside of e-mail?
Wow. I too had the original and then moved on to the android wilderness for a few years only to return the the 5. I couldn't be happier with it. I keep telling myself its so damn perfect I'll be using it for the next 5yrs. Can you imagine how the 10th generation iPhone will be compared to the current one? Thanks for your post dude.
what are you talking about, i still get girls to send me n00dz. mms is the bomb
ever since my razr
I still have mine
It needs a new battery & I'm not sure ill ever use it again,,but hey it's a nice blast from the past to look at...
Not me but I used to have one. Paid £269 plus a £40 a month contract for that thing! So expensive at the time.
The original iPhone was probably the strongest. It was near-indestructible IMO. I dropped mine a handful of times and once it got trampled on. Only a tiny little scratch on the screen.
Sold it as "like new" on eBay and described the scratch... got a good deal for it
It is in pristine condition. There is not a scratch on it. However, my 4 year grandson is now using it as a iPod Touch. Hmmmm. . . Perhaps, the little guy might be better off with my iPad.
