    I mean when buying a new factory sealed iPhone, you open the packaging, is the phone usually already on? Like you don't need to press and hold the power button to switch it on, just the home button. I've had a couple of iPhones but I honestly forgot.

    I have no idea, I thought they were. Must have forgotten. That's why I decided to ask, to make sure.

    At the 4 launch a few years ago, one of the pimply apple sales-people touched my screen without a glove. I...was...furious. Spoke to 3 different managers and they wouldn't replace the phone.

    Unpure...on day one!!!

    You should have thrown the phone against the wall and demanded another one

    Are you joking? You wanted them to replace your phone because someone else touched it?

    All I wanted was a fresh phone and for the salesperson to be fired. I got neither.

    As luck would have it the little sweet-tart slipped into the deep fryer at work and Apple-Care covered it about a month later.

    Really. You think they ship them turned on? A plane load of phones all running the batteries down and maybe something happening?

    Dead phones when they arrive?

    I guess the big question is why does it matter?
