Fun fact about the iPhone 3G: Despite its name it’s actually the second generation iPhone offering from Apple. The iPhone 3G gets its namesake from the introduction of the cellular data network it supports: 3G.

The original iPhone was a success, the iPhone 3G was a miracle of technology. Despite being largely similar devices, the iPhone 3G was twice as fast and sold twice as quickly, with a million sold in the first weekend in the US alone.

The key to its greatness was among other things the allure of 3G, a network that fully supported streaming of music and video. This allowed the smartphone to genuinely be used as intended, where the original phone would struggle to download anything, even webpages were a long struggle. Not only did it support 3G, it lead in its advancement; Steve Jobs claimed that the 3G capability was 36% faster than competitors.

iOS received an update in line with the release of the new phone and along came many bug fixes and improvements to the operating system. This allowed the same ARM 11 processor from the original iPhone to run effectively twice as quickly (almost as quick as the cash you can make from selling your iPhone with Zapper).

A couple of others things helped the phone reach widespread success. The iPhone 3G’s base cost was half that of the original. Thus, making it much better value for the package offered. The other was the introduction of the Apple SDK (Software Development Kit) and the App Store.

It was with this latter move that Apple really propelled the iPhone into the stratosphere, now the iPhone wasn’t just a handheld device that could play music and take emails but it could be anything you wanted it to be. The addition of the app store allowed the development of mobile gaming, lifestyle applications and a huge inventory of other features that Apple couldn’t even dream of. It made the iPhone 3G practically unlimited in its potential.

It’s this customisability that allows the iPhone 3G to still be a very capable little phone, even years after its launch. It’s exactly why we’re willing to pay so much cash for it. So if you’re looking to sell your old iPhone 3G then you’ve find the right place. Zapper will do it right for you, we don’t charge for shipping, there’s no hidden charges and definitely no cheap tricks!
