Review of the Classic Series - iPhone 2G

The History of the iPhone 2G

The iPhone 2G is the first iPhone model and the first smartphone designed and marketed by Apple Inc. After years of rumors and speculation, it was officially announced on January 9, 2007, and released in the United States on June 29, 2007. The device broke with prevailing mobile phone designs by eliminating most physical hardware buttons and eschewing a stylus for its finger-friendly touch interface, featuring instead only a few physical buttons and a touch screen.

The iPhone quickly became Apple's most successful product, with later generations propelling it to become the most profitable company at the time. The introduction of the App Store allowed established companies and startup developers to build careers and earn billions of dollars via the platform, while providing consumers with new ways to access information and connect with other people. The iPhone largely appealed to the general public, as opposed to the business community that BlackBerry and IBM focused on at the time. By integrating existing technology and expanding on usability, the iPhone turned the smartphone industry "on its head."

US carrier AT&T officially announced that it would shut down its 2G network on January 1, 2017, after a four-year plan. The original iPhone only supports a 2G network, and the carrier's closure of the 2G network means that this classic phone will become a complete collector's item, never to be used again.

Is this phone still working for you today?
