Hanging onto a busted-up phone?
4 Years Old iPhone with Huge Cracked
Yangon, Myanmar | 6 October 2011 ~~ I'm a mac fan since childhood. When the original iPhone launched, I didn't even interest to get that phone. Because I thought it is pretty big during that time and I didn't need a smart phone.
When iPhone 3G was out, I just tried to get one for me due to smart phone usages around the world has been boomed. It was exciting with 3rd party apps. I got my own iPhone 3G in early 2008. It is 16GB one and black color. Since that time, I'm just addicted to smart phone especially iPhone.
It would be the only thing that I always take wherever I go. I even took it when I went to the jungle where no GSM signals could be found, for photo shooting and to listen music. Since 2008 that iPhone 3G staying with me.
Now screen is already cracked because of accidentally fall off from my pocket. And got 2 screen burn spots. Back side is already fill with scratches. There is no volume controls and mute switch. It doesn't alert me calls by ringtones anymore. Battery could not survive more than 5 hours for stand by mode. But it's ok, it is still working fine for me just as a normal phone.
I tried to replace my screen but it would cost me around 150$. So that I decided not to repair and save money to get new one. Surely, I will choose iPhone 4 S because I already addicted to iOS and invested money on iOS apps.
This is the story of my iPhone 3G. If you are curious to see my iPhone. I took some photos for you.
