Why I've never paid Apple store prices for an iPhone, and you shouldn’t either

Sasha Lekach

My first iPhone was the first iPhone.

I'm not one of those early adopters, but my friend is. She had a Motorola Razr before anyone else in our social circle. Back then, I was still sliding my Samsung and using T9 predictive texting. Checking my email and and using a touchscreen seemed like things I'd never experience on a phone. But when the iPhone came out, she was on it. 

The iPhone kept updating, and quickly. There was the iPhone 3G, and then my friend was onto the next, as early adopters are wont to do. That left her original phone available. Did I want it?
