    I noticed that the print on the back, specifically the smaller writing (from California, made in China, etc...), is off center. I never noticed this on the original, but this immediately struck me as odd. It's a replacement phone from T-Mobile. Do you think it's fake?

    If it's running iOS and came from T-Mobile then there's a 99.9% chance that it's real. Could just be a manufacturing defect.

    It definitely runs iOS. I can just pop into the T-Mobile store to see if they've seen anything like it.

    Bring it to Apple and see what they say. They will probably be kind of shocked.

    Wow... That's a first. If you take I to apple use the word "defect" a ton of times they will probably give you a new one. Don't forget to use the word "defect". If you go in there and say hey you guys screwed up they might think its fine and not give you anything. Mind tricks you know :D
