I read the book, and in the book the time portal only goes to 1957 (or is it '58? can't remember). They always change some details when they put it on film (although I imagine it's digital).
And where is this on Fox? If it were on Fox in America, I'd be able to see it. It's only available here on Hulu Plus, meaning you gotta have a sub.

It's Fox in Europe (at least Balkan Fox).
Iphone was first seen on the literature class - a student didn't pay attention on teacher's lecture but laughing instead at the iphone.
James Franco - who act main role of the teacher ' asked him what was so funny, and the student showed to him a video clip: a parrot, dancing on Icona Pop's "I Love It".
(It was also Stephen King's criticism of modern alienated youth who don't care for books blah-blah.)
Ok, in the 1960, the teacher brought with him a notebook with plenty of sport results, because betting is going to be his only way to support himself, to rent a room and live unconspicous life.
he won a big bet in some dark cafe (probably illegal bookmaker), and he was scared they might come after him to get their money back.
He rents a room in a motel, and his paranoia proves right: a guy from betting cafe broke into his room. When he came in the guy saw the iphone on the pillow: a parrot dancing on Icona Pop's music.
James Franco used the opportunity and kicked him, and run away in his newly acquired fancy cabriolet.
Later he throw the iphone from the bridge.
