iPhone 3G - already with pictures ! (aka "iPhone Girl")

Hi,

Not sure if this is or is not the 'norm' but I just received my brand new iPhone here in the UK and once it had been activated on iTunes I found that the home screen (the screen you can personalise with a photo) already had a photo set against it !!!!

It would appear that someone on the production line was having a bit of fun - has anyone else found this ?

These are the photo's:

LOL, WOW! Nice find, but I don't think anyone else has that.

Why aren't they using Mac's and Cinema displays? Come on Apple! How can you expect them to work productively with those POS machines?

Aw that's cute! That's nice that at least they have some fun in the drab of assembling technology...

Since you don't know who it is and will never find out, they will just float here on the internet I guess. Nice find though.

That's pretty cool. This could be good PR for Apple to show they contract companies that have great facilities and happy workers making their products.

I wonder though, if any other phones have more....sinister....pictures?

This is hilarious. She should get a promotion, since it's probably her boss taking the pic...

I sent my MacBook Pro out for service and had some pictures of a service tech in Photobooth when I got it back. I thought it was kinda funny.
Your pics are great though.

She would not be the one to get fired as she was not the one taking the picture. She was in the picture.

If she gives up the person taking the picture He/She will be fired. Not girl (kiko as I have named her )LOL

At least its not the sweatshop I had imagined it to be.

I'm sure they test most all the iPhones and maybe forgot to delete for you? or left you a little treat haha.
