    Default Does Apple Still Replace The iPhone 2G?

    I just found out that it only costs $149 to have it repaired, would they repair it or replace it? Its water damaged, dented, scratched, and has a malfunctioning LCD and home button

    Hey, it's worth asking. Worst case, you're already there to buy a new one.

    Well, apparently you can still get it serviced if you're in California:
    First iPhone 'becomes obsolete' next month - Telegraph

    Rest of the world, no more service as of June.

    Not sure how that could happen. Apple used to not let you out of the store without it being activated. That was a huge issue on launch day - incredible delays at the Apple store.

    Honestly I'd still use it if I could update the OS to work with apps now without totally bogging it down bc of the limited memory and processor. Wouldn't have to worry about buying a case and just roll naked

    FWIW, I’d love to have one just to have it. I have a 3G and a 3GS as well as a 4 just sitting in my "museum" along side my still working first generation Apple TV and iPad (original) and a bunch of old iPods (including the U2 and a 5GB first gen). A close friend of mine has two PowerBooks (160 and 190cs) and a Macintosh 128K.

    I brought a 2008 MacBook in once for issues and they called it vintage. So I ended up upgrading and getting a 2012 air 13". You should consider upgrading also lol.

    Here are some pictures of my iPhone. Everything still works, except for the Home Button :/ . But luckily Apple is required by US statute to provide repair and replacement service, in the State of California. You lucky Californians. And with that, does anyone know where I can get cheap repairs?
    My poor iPhones all need repairs, but I should start with the original one.
