It has been a while since my last Old Apple Crap post, so here’s a new one.
After my original iPhone, I migrated to a 3GS. Unfortunately the 3GS, being made of plastic, didn’t fare very well and I no longer have it… But I still have my iPhone 4 and 5, and like my first iPhone they still function…
The interesting bit about the above iPhone 4 is that it’s the phone that broke the AT&T strangle hold on iPhones… It’s the first CDMA version, and was a Verizon phone.
It has an integrated SIM, so it still shows network connectivity, but the service has been turned down for voice calls – so this phone, like my original iPhone, is only really useful as a collectible now.
My iPhone 5 was another CDMA model on Verizon, but this time in white to break my long history of black iPhones.
The iPhone 5 was peak iPhone in my opinion; retina screens in a proper wide-screen ratio, lightning connector, LTE connectivity, good battery, good performance… It was the total package, and still fit in the average human hand.
In theory I could put a SIM in this phone and it would still work… Probably not worth the expense of another carrier service though, so it too is just a collectable at this point.
