    Just curious to see which part of it indicates your place 'in line'.. Granted we don't know where it started, but I ordered one phone at 9 AM on the 15th, that order number starts w/ a 5, I ordered mine 15 minutes later, and that number starts with a 3. Two other people ordered after I did..


    Any thoughts?

    Are you serious?

    You can't just wait for it to come to your doorstep on the 24th?

    I'm just curious about it; is it a random string of numbers or does it indicate anything.

    PST?

    So perhaps it's just a randomly generated number

    As for your question. This has been asked many times before on these forums plus others. Apples system uses different number start points for different locations but order numbers are not specific to iphone orders.

    Guys n gals I totally don't have an attitude; I don't see the point in posting a reply that says 'stupid question'.

    In grade school our teacher told us there were never any stupid questions, but this is a truly stupid question.

    why would you ever want to decode somethign this scientific?

    do you think it means anytthing? (IT DOESNT)
    do you think youre some sort of "MATH WIZ" (YOU ARENT)
    so just give it up and let the chips fall as tehy may (THEY WILL ANYWAY!!)

    my order number is totally different than all of the ones posted above and actually contains some sort of charater that just looks like heiroglyphics to me !! LOL or pig latin or wahtever ! lol POINT IS it doesnt MATTER!!!!! just let apple do its thing and CHILL

    MAC_RUMOR has it that the order numbers are randomized so they CANT BE CRACKED!! its like a code that no human could ever learn or understand. SO QUIT IT

    I don't think I've ever seen a thread that showed as much desperation and impatience as yours.

    Same thing here. The numbers mean nothing.

    jeez, give the OP a break. He had a question. If you can't answer it then don't say anything. So what if he asked a dumb question. It's not like Arn clubs 10 baby seals every time a new thread is opened.... :rolleyes:

    The numbers were tied to the identity of the candidates.

    iPhone madness has driven everyone insane! Control yourselves people! :D

    I haven't the slightest clue as to what those numbers could mean, OP. :(

    Yeah maybe he should play the lottery with the numbers and become a millionaire and buy a fast food company.

    One of the dumbest posts I've ever read. This is the logic that decrypting the algorithm software companies make up to create their registration keys is based on. Yet there are still a plethora of keygens out there.
