Karen Green received as a gift in 2007 a iphone original but never got to use it. The woman worked for a mobile phone company that prevented her from using the phone Manzana. Green decided to keep the phone in her box for more than 15 years.
Now, the iPhone unopened and in its original box, managed to fetch $63,000 at auction held by LCG Auctions which closed on February 19.

The device features a 3.5-inch screen, a 2-megapixel camera, and the Safari browser. Because it is considered a collector’s item, the phone can be worth 100 times its original price of $600.
In October 2021, Green learns about this news: iPhones are being auctioned off for thousands of dollars. After the discovery, she considered whether she could sell her equipment, until she was encouraged to do so by seeing a recent auction for more than $40,000.
With the money from his sold iPhone, Green was able to open his cosmetic tattoo parlor in new jersey. Her new business was the main reason for her to decide to finalize the sale of the cell phone, as she indicates in an interview with Business Insider.
