    I bought the phone brand new from a seller on eBay.

    I got the phone today, the box was sealed.

    Sticker on the box says 16GB, iTunes/iPhone 4 is saying 29.06GB

    Did I get a 32GB iPhone?

    Well, with the way that they aren't labeled on the back anymore, I guess it is slightly plausible that there could have been a mixup. Try loading it up with some large video files and see if it actually holds it all. That's the best way I can think of to test it out.

    Lucky if true. Good for you! Haha.

    Did the box come sealed? I wonder if the guy who sold it to you took some of them out to take photos for his post, and then put them back into the wrong boxes since they aren't labeled on the back. Someone who ordered a 32gb is going to be pissed! Wow.

    wow lol, how bout if the 16gb we're really 32gb and it the remaining gbs we're just locked and some how you got one that was unlocked so therefore people that are runnning aorund with 16gbs do in fact have 32gb but don't know it?

    now that would be a damn controversy

    As stated, The box was SEALED.

    So I didn't do to bad. $700 for a 32GB iPhone 4 with Next day shipping with insurance.

    No screen issues. Phone is flawless.

    Yeah, Not my problem Apple was rushing it's employees at the factory to make 1.7 million iPhone 4's.

    Sealed boxes mean nothing. Anyone can re-seal the box after opening if they have the right material/tools.

    On AT&T's site they had my phone listed as a 16GB model though I own a 32GB. Seems to be some confusion across the board.

    Ok, Did you really just say that?

    Why would a seller on eBay reseal a 32GB iPhone when the auction was a 16GB.

    The seller could have easily got $100-$200 more for a 32GB on eBay FYI.

    I guess I need to be more clear.

    The box was SEALED, Looks like APPLE'S way of sealing products. (the thickness of plastic/that sound it makes when you rip/cut it into it.

    Yes, they were showing a picture of the 3GS for my iPhone 4. Had to change that manually.

    Before I enter my SN# at this site, Is this a well known site?

    I'll guess I can google it.

    Huh, no, anyone can duplicate that provided they have access to the right material/tools. There's nothing special about Apple's plastic.

    An ebayer could have opened up to take pics, etc. and misplaced.
