    Default 4GB iPhones - Old Stock ?

    I have 2 x 4GB iPhones due tomorrow .

    seeing as Apple discontinued the 4GB iPhones what are the chances that they have the old firmware installed.

    Or is this a stupid question ??

    I would have thought that there is a greater chance they are than the 8GB model

    Will find out tomorrow anyway

    lets hope that the updated unlock arrives soon.

    Default 4GB iPhones

    My friend in Delaware bought them off Apple's website for $299 each

    Then mailed them to me by Fedex

    Ok... the way it works is this.
    Your serial number contains several digits in alphanumeric form.
    For finding out the FW version we know this.
    A) That 1.1.1 FW Update appeared in production week 39 of the iPhone
    B) That the 4th and 5th Digits of the serial denote the phones week of production.

    For example I have a 4Gb iphone with serial # 7R732xxxxxx
    Meaning my iPhone was produced on week 32

    If you get a phone with a production week of 38 or less you are guaranteed to have a pre 1.1.1. FW.
    The problem comes aroung week 39... where Apple released the FW update mid week of production week 39.

    But yes... I think you are guaranteed a pre 1.1.1 by purchasing ANY 4GB model as they cancelled the 4Gb model sometime during week 37-38

    more info about buying them from the apple store here

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=9888

    also it appears (i already buy 2 4gb iphones) that all of them are previous of week 39... so its safe to assume that they are 1.1.1 free....
