iPhone 5 Model Number Question
I have three different model numbers for our 64gb iPhone 5.
One iphone has MD654LL (White 64gb AT&T) From Best Buy, Bought yesterday from Pe-order.
One iphone has MD647LL (White 64gb AT&T) From AT&T Local Store on 1st Day - Walk-in.
One iphone has a model number MD645LL (Black 64gb AT&T) from AT&T Store 1st day walk in. This one I understand woould be different because of color.
Why do the two white iPhone 5's have different numbers?

I don't think anyone currently knows.
It could be a multitude of reasons. For instance, in Europe the French iPhone is exactly identical in hardware to iPhones sold in other countries, but its model number* is different so the phone knows to apply a volume limiter (which is required by law there.)
It could be something like that, or that it uses components from a different manufacturer (like the screen or the flash memory.)
*) Actually the country code appended to the model number

Now if someone else can decode te rest of the number.
I think it is going to be a factory code of some kind. Mine is the only one I have seen with the 647 code so far and we have compared several here at work.

the European iP5 uses the identical hardware as the Sprint and Verizon models. Provisioning software is different.
The ATT model is specific to ATT only and will only be sold for that as well as the minor US carriers

My (UK) replacement's (iPhone 5, 16GB, black) model number is ND297.
Googling that model number brings up 0 results, only results for MD297 (which corresponds to the 16GB black version). Can anyone shed some light on this?
Edit: and the back of the original phone's box says MD297, too.
I'm guessing this is because it's a replacement? The Genius told me it was't refurbished because it's too soon for there to be any refurbs.
Nevermind, I just saw this post. I really should do a proper search before posting...
