    It is an original iPhone 4GB version. It has European text on the rear and was manufactured in week 34 of 2007. The only similar iPhone I have seen is model MB340B which was a demo unit made for the UK market. If anyone knows the origin or anything about this iPhone, it would be greatly appreciated.

    It all depends on what frequencies it uses and if they are compatible with your carrier.

    If it is stolen or lost . . . . .

    I suspect the website is wrong because Apple didn't offer iPhone for sale in China until 2009 (iPhone 3GS).

    The website probably thinks "CH" automatically means China but probably means something else.

    Yes, that's what I thought. I can't find any mention of it on other websites except this one.

    CH is China. Switzerland and Austria are FD.

    If it's not absolutely mint I don't think it has any real value

    It is in brand new condition, but a shame it's a Chinese model. Do you think it might be a prototype?

    UPDATE: So after doing some research, it turns out that this Chinese model doesn't exist. I found out the model number from imei24.com and after entering the serial of another iPhone, it came up with the same number. I knew this wasn't a Chinese model, so imei24 was wrong. The correct model number is MB340B/A, and these often go for thousands on eBay if you can even find one.
