    I posted stating that I noticed my iphone 4 had a rare serial number with a certain four letter curse word spelled out I'm the center of the number. I also posted a picture of the "serial number". The whole thread was deleted. Wow! And I was wondering if people would care about a silly serial number... I may really have something here. I had to block out part part of the number, what's covered is a "c"

    I believe it was a pic of a curse word that got your thread deleted.

    I would say it probably had to do with the rules regarding profanity on the board, which apply not only to posts, but to graphics as well.

    Although you didn't make the serial number you were still breaking forum rules by posting that.

    While most of us really don't care this still is a site that anyone including children can visit.

    So what if my daughter went through my phone? Hmmmmm.... Or this could be my daughters phone! I'm really surprised Apple let this slide!

    yeah, I bet she hasn't heard FU before :rolleyes:

    Let me talk to all the cool kids and see if they have gone inside settings then about to see their serial numbers to find hidden words/msjs. Mine says
    43J0BSAL1V3 ... (not really)

    Posting disallowed obscene words, even when they elude the profanity filter by being in a graphic, is still, to my understanding, subject to deletion.
