The first iPhone originally sold for $599. It had a 3.5-inch screen, a 2-megapixel camera, internet capabilities, iTunes, and more. It also had 4GB and 8GB storage options.
Early Apple phones ran on 2G networks, had no app stores, and were dedicated to AT&T’s network.
Cosmetic tattoo artist Karen Green was given an 8GB cell phone when she got a new job, Business Insider reports.
Green already has a new phone and the iPhone was not compatible with her cellular network, so she couldn’t open it. Green left her phone on the shelf. The iPhone appears to have sat “wrapped in felt pajamas” for years.
Green also appeared on the daytime TV show “The Doctor & The Diva” in 2019, where the show’s appraisers valued the phone at $5,000. Prices have increased since then.
In October, another unopened first-generation iPhone sold for over $39,000 at an auction conducted by LCG Auctions. When Green found out, she contacted her LCG Auctions to handle the sale. The phone is now listed by the same company and will open for bidding on Thursday at $2,500.Until February 19th, Apple enthusiasts can bid to buy the tech relic.
Green wants to support a cosmetic tattoo studio in New Jersey, so he decided to sell the phone now. Green told Business Insider that if she can keep the phone around for another 10 years or so, she probably will, and the only reason she’s selling the phone is because she needs to support this business. am.
