    I'm assuming its so they can work out postage via its weight. Its unlikely anyone is going to really know the answer to your question OP for another few days.

    Well I have preordered my iPhone 5 32GB black here in Belgium (very small country). And all the people who preordered at this shop can participate with a small contest. If you can guess how much 5 iPhones sealed in the box weights, they pay back your iPhone.

    And since the 32GB version costs as little as 789€ (1035$) I'd like to take my chances in this mini contest.

    He's not cheating, he's using all available resources to get the best estimate. Seems like a good plan to me although I don't think anyone will be able to help.

    I would not call this cheating.
    There are never notes about doing your research on the web..

    Since they did such little to change the iPhone, I'll bet they did nothing to change the packaging. Go weigh an iPhone 4 box and add that to the spec weight of the 5....swag y'all.

    so when you take a test do you just ask the people around you for the answer?

    I'll try that tomorrow. Thanks!

    Well.. We'll see I guess, I'll let you all now in this topic if I won.


    But I still have a pretty good feeling about this :).

    It's a very small country and very few people are preordering in general here, and I'm not even talking about that shop. Most won't read the small text at the bottom of that confirmation email (with the link to the contest) because they're too lazy. The contest is only valid till the 21th. And most are not die hard Apple fans like me and aren't reading Apple news sites / forums :).

    Ah, in this case it is 40 lbs. I got this information from a post it note in an elevator at Apple from a janitor there. Trust me, you'll win with this guess. They did say the iPhone was going to get heavier, and boy did they mean it... oh I am sorry, that was the weight of a giant GS3 :D:apple:

    when do you have to submit your entry by? wait till some of us get a shipping confirmation with box weight. That'll give you a better guess

    Nope, shipping weight will Likely say 3 pounds or something grossly exaggerated.

    The box looks wider too, and don't forget you even get a set of EarPods with the case, which could add a little bit of weight

    Apple website says 112 grams, so add a little for packaging and multiply by the number of phones.

    So... Now that the contest is over and the iPhone 5 has been launched in several countries.
    Anyone who can tell me the exact weight of 1 box with everything in it (unopened)?
