*Then declare yourself God-King and rule over them with your magic box.

What would you do when you ran out of battery?

Nothing much.

By then they would all know what happens to the unbelievers of the God-King.

All hail the God King.

Well, personally I think it would be pretty easy to tell them what it does. HOW it does that, like someone else said, many people today wouldn't understand. But WHAT it does is a pretty easy concept, people weren't stupid back then.

I mean something along the lines of:

"This a communication box. I hold this one up to my ears and mouth. Someone else, close by or even (insert distance measurement of the time) away holds one of these boxes to their mouth and ears. When I speak they can hear me. When they speak I can hear them. We can communicate over long distances"

Not really that difficult of a concept is it? I don't think so...

You could go in other functions of it, but considering it is an I PHONE that is the main function. Explaining the internet might be more difficult. Explaining that is plays music, makes calculations, and keeps time would be pretty easy too, I would think.

depending on the time period
after playing a lady gaga or heavy metal video
you could be accused of possessing an evil box from the devil

and burned at the stake

a cave man might freak out and smash your idevice
and then smash you

Don't do it OP,please!
Do not go back in time and show them your I Phone friend,
We will be in a worse mess if you do.

If you have to go back,take an advanced field medic kit with you,and the training manual.
That could help us out here in the future.
