    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.

    I think the 2G would be a collectors item by now, lol.

    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.
