    I honestly think its kinda cool that now that the iPhone 5s and 5c is released they are discontinuing the iPhone 5.. Do you think iPhone 5 is gonna be a rare or collectible iPhone in the future? What do you guys think?

    Not sure. It may be too early to tell, and as has been stated already, there are a lot of them out there.

    No one views outdated phones as collectable. When it comes to phones, everyone wants the newest, not the rarest.

    Well, im pretty sure the ipad3 im typing this on isnt a collectors item and it was only available for about half a year. So im guessing not.

    Idk, think of a collectible as something sitting in its original packaging collecting dust. Like my I5 and can't put it down long enough for that.

    I don't really see it becoming a rarity or collectible like others have said. But if you do have an iPhone 5 like myself and 96% of the world does, then you can say you have a discontinued phone.. If that means anything to you.

    The iPhone 5 was wildly successful and there are a LOT out there, even if they have discontinued it, it's not gonna become a collectible. The original iPhone on the other hand...

    I'm not too thrilled that the full black with anodized (omg i spelled that right the first time) black sides is not available on iPhone 5S. I was looking for that to upgrade from 3GS. I even talked my wife into buying the white one so we can differentiate at a glance - she wanted black.

    So to answer your question - if there's a slight chance it gains any admiration in the future - the all black on black would be the reason why.

    I wouldn't go so far as to say the 5 will become a collectible, but I do believe it will hold its value fairly well. Remember, it's going against the 5c, which has virtually the same specs with a $550 off-contract price.
