Should I buy $18,000 iPhone 2G?

Views: 797 Replies: 11
So, I just recently crossed over something since I want to buy a new iPhone 2G to replace my old dead one that I never really used, it cannot connect to iTunes, or can be used, so I went across this looking to replace my old iPhone 2G (one of them died). So, do you ever recommend me buying somethings that are $18,000 that is old?

www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Facto... k-Smartphone-2G-/121981596270?hash=item1c66ab726e:g:F9QAAOSw3mpXIOE2 $18,000 iPhone 2G

I don't know how people buy these, and why are they priced so high? I really needed to do some project that requires iPhone OS 1.0, but my iPhone 2G that just died is my only iPhone on iPhone OS 1.0, all others are on iOS 3.1.3.

Absolutely not. The seller seems to think they have a ancient treasure. Sorry, it's just an old phone that hasn't been used. Yes, it may be valuable to someone as a collector's item (unopended box and all that), but even then, it sure the heck isn't worth $18,000.

MUCH better prices on certified used iPhones here:

buy.gazelle.com/buy-used-ip...

Glyd is another good site:

glyde.com/buy/used-iphone

With either vendor, you'll be getting a phone that is guaranteed to work. Unlike Craig's List or eBay where you may be purchasing a stolen phone that's locked, and as such, is useless.

Unless the slightly extra speed of the A7 chip in an iPhone 6 is critical to your needs, you'd save a heck of a lot of money buying a 5s instead. Price varies with condition and what service you need it for, but Glyd has a 16 GB iPhone 5s for AT&T as low as $140. Unlocked phones are always more. Search the site, or Gazelle's and see what they have.

I can't make that decision for you. It sounds like you are indeed collecting multiples of all iPhones ever made. As such, you would want the cleanest ones you can get - preferably new and unused for the best possible future resale value. Only you can know what is, or isn't worth the cost of the item.

I meant you can buy 18 iPhone 6s Plus 128GB and still have money left, they are fast performing.

And, also I have every generation iPhone, but only 19 iPhone 2G left. i have 20 of each iPhone, but should I buy used (damaged), or new? I don't need iPhone 5s, this is a retro test, I can no longer downgrade them to iOS 1.0, and all are on iOS 2.0 or 3.0. It is a valuable.
