    if you save the first picture to your computer and then right-click to get the summary, this is what you'll get

    I think I'll get a 16GB iPhone if it is a surprise release here in November, as I can then unlock it and put in my Pay&Go SIM :)

    Well, to play devil's advocate for a moment, the first picture does have the serial number blurred out. To accomplish that, you would most likely have to use photoshop.

    Agreed, Photoshop in the EXIF data doesn't necessarily mean fake. However, the date taken says 10/9. Why would anyone take such a potentially newsworthy photo and just sit on it for 5 days? That, combined with the obvious rubber stamping and old calc icon, and this thread may as well be locked.

    The "2" in the Version 1.1.2 is bolder and different focus from all the other numbers in the first picture. That's suspicious.

    If you work at an Apple Store, and you get 16GB iPhones, would you really be allowed to open up the box, take out the iPhone, turn it on, go to the info screen take a picture of it without anyone noticing what's going on?

    What happens when they later find a box that has been opened before?

    Exactly. The OP has been owned.

    Close this thread.

    What if it was a storewide effort. Everyone knew about it, and they worked with eachother to get these pictures out there. :p;)

    Well, first of all I think it's bs, but if you're going to put out floor models at some point or train the reps on the product, I assume you're going to have to open up a box or two.

    Well for one, someone is going to be alone with the product, and for two, they arent any different except for the size and the firmware (evidentally :D) There wouldnt be any need for training. It would just be extra apps that are just as easy to use as current ones.

    Why'd you have to use the 16GB iPhones? Why not use the regular 8GB ones?

    Besides, I went to an Apple Store on August 8, and none of the employees had been trained with iLife '08 or anything yet.

    This is an obvious fake. The "noise" added to the photos to simulate JPEG compression is so Photoshop "noise". It stands out a mile.

    Also. If the user has supposedly just taken the iPhone out of the box and turned it on, why does it show its already registered to the AT&T network? Doesn't this happen only if the SIM has been activated via iTunes?

    No, the photo really was taken on a phone. Read the post up top of page 2.

    Definitely fake. You can see that the noise has been added in AFTER the serial number has been blurred out. The only way that could happen would be if the noise had been added in to mask out any faults in the photoshopping, but only after the blur had been added on.

    I am sure the OP is not to concerned about being "owned".
    He is sitting in his chair with a big ole hard on and a smile.
    He got what he wanted a rise out of the forums and 49 replies( or more)
