I'd say it means that it has the new iPhone charger

It means you've been selected as one of the lucky few to go to the island.

Dont't Worry i got a green dot on mine. Like the guy pointed out it means 4 things, Probably is build 40 week or more recent, It has the new charger, Its new (not refurb) and has the minor hardware improvements.

I got that from a genius that called because i was worried about being a refurb because of the same green dot. They did some minor in-case hardware improvements and out-case improvements (case, crack issues, aligments) just to solve some build problems.

dont get over excited, when i got my phone recently i asked the girl what is this green dot, dont tell me your handing me an refurb. she did not know and told me to ask one of the techs guy. He made a call and the information he told me just sounded like they did minor improvements in the exterior and on the interior, to solve some build problems. I suppose is nothing big just small changes, that i suppose they keep doing to solve all the previous build problems. He also mentions me they are now shipping with the new charger blah blah.

It means your phone was made recently, and includes the new battery charger.

.

It's one of the new green phones!
