    I reported it. Hopefully it gets pulled and saves someone a hassle.

    as far as replica standards go, it's debateable. the box nor the phone say apple or iphone, but the pictures could easily deceive someone (a gray area violation).

    but as someone just mentioned, he describes the item as an iphone in the listing twice. it's in violation on that count.

    So an iPhone is the same as this? That's what you're saying.

    the screen doesn't even look real. it looks like a dummy phone or something...

    Try reading the title first: "Iphone unlocked to use on any GSM & CDMA network"

    Text aside, that's way too thick to be an iPhone. The keys on the visible side are also different (the one displayed is farther up and there's no ringer switch).

    The software on the phone is also obviously fake because there is no space for a 4th row of icons, which anybody with an iPhone knows is supposed to be there.

    Looks like this is someone that scammed in China and is now trying to sell the phone. Hopefully it's not the same one that was talked about here on MR.

    Doubt it, the eBay page says it's in the United States, the guy that posted the other day was from Canada.

    someone should make two ebay accounts and bid it up to a thousand dollars. Then when he files for a unpaying ebayer, just say that he is a liar and that you paid through another form of payment. That way it will majorly screw him over when he pays for the fees ;)

    And as usual, if you read through the topic you will realise he does claim it. Look at the title of the auction; they are trying to pass it off as an iPhone.

    It has a few.

    But I think Nokias, RAZRs, etc are still copied a lot more often in China, etc.
