iPhone Serial Number Project List
While the dev team is busy working on unlocking the phone I thought we could all do a distributed attack on decrypting the serial number since I haven't seen any details about it anywhere else.
Reply to this thread with as much info as you can in hopes that we can create a master table to decrypt the serial number and reveal assembly plant location, 5xx or 7xx LCD screen, date of manufacture, etc. At this point I am unsure where the unique serial number digits begin but once we start seeing multiple numbers it should give us a clue. Once we find which information is redundant and common to all iPhones we'll drop it from the collection list.
Serial No: #A###*AAAA# where # = digit; A = letter; and * = either digit or letter
First two characters: 7U = Factory. List includes 7R, 7S, 7T and 7U.
Third character: 7 = Manufacture year. (2007)
Fourth and fifth characters: 26 = Manufacture week. (26th week - Jun 24)
Sixth to Eleventh characters: Can be #AAAA# or AAAAA#. Unique production identifier for each iPhone.

Reason: Updated serial number list
i dont really undarstand for what you wanna use the information, but if somebody from dev team confirm the needed of this, i'll imediatly post my too!

Interesting. The purpose for gathering this information?
My thoughts are a lot of people were bummed about getting a 7xx screen due to the white dots problem. I thought if there was a way to determine if the iPhone in the box you are getting has a 5xx or 7xx screen before you buy it then it might be a good thing.

Just trying to help. If nobody wants to play thats cool though.
you have a program for find this information by an serial number?
No, I'm just trying to figure out a correlation between serial number and LCD ID.

I try to explain: lets say they're using a 5 series LCD on serials 11111001 to 11111530 and a 7 series LCD on serials 11111531 to 11111999, there is no guarantee that the starting with serial 11112000, a 5 series LCD will be used again. You would need hundreds or more iPhones to be able to make a somehow valid statistical claim about what serial number could carry a certain LCD.
The problem is that the iPhone doesn't use different ones because there has been an improvement and/or an update to a new one, the iPhone uses different ones simply because of short manufacturer supply, so Apple has to get them from different sources to be able to manufacture the number of iPhones they need/want.
The idea of yours is interesting but I doubt it would lead to any valuable results.
If somebody gives me a "scientific" approach to this matter (or in fact knows that Apple uses certain LCD IDs with specific serial number codes), I may change my opinion.
Eesh. Just trying to help. There have been serial number decryption tables for all the other Apple products.
If nobody wants to post their serial number, that's fine. No need for everyone to call me on the stupid idea. Just let the post die...
J to the T. Shaken, not Stirred
Hey, hey, guys, calm down, this is a great idea.
But even better, let's decrypt some credit card and social security numbers.
