is there any point in an original iphone as it seems no apps are compatible with this phone anymore?
it recieve mails and let you browse the internet when it was first released there were no such thing as app store
so guess compared to now it have gotten copy paste and mms so guess it depend on if you see any point
That depends on your needs. It still does everything it did when it was new.
The bigger issue is that many carriers are shutting down their EDGE networks (AT&T in the U.S. for example). Once they do so, it won't even function as a phone.
