Does my iPhone bought recently (in the black box) makes it a refurb?
I bought an iPhone in an Apple store there are some week (April 2, 2008). The serial number, however, begins with 7W743. I understand that this means it was manufactured in week The 43rd (October) 2007. So my question is: how do I buy a new iPhone six months to an Apple store? The phone was in the black box shrinkwrapped original (not the white box refurb that I know can come) and they do not indicate that it has been renovated. It came with the most recent firmware (1.1.4). In addition, in the box, there were no instructions whatsoever, and without cleaning cloth, but I thought it was normal. Anyone have an idea? Have I made a mistake by buying a refurb, or was it really iPhone sitting around 6 months and somehow had the latest firmware put on that?
Maybe I am wrong but I will say u have been scammed bigtime firmware version 1.1.4 does not exist 6 months ago it back from where u bought!
