    Hello MacRumors Community,

    I have a new iPhone 4S, and as such wish to recycle my old iPhone 4.

    To do so, I need to find out how many GB my old iPhone 4 had. I cannot access the "Setting" menu - I am aware of how to find the information through the phone, but I cannot turn the phone on.

    I have every serial code possible for the iPhone. Is there any way I can find out the GB capacity of the iPhone without turning it on?

    Many thanks for every helpful response.

    Not on iPhones that I know of. Definitely not the 4 anyway as I used to have one.

    If the phone is dead or stuck in DFU or recovery mode, I don't know if it'll display the capacity.

    Uh... isn't the Apple AXXX number uniquely identifies the device including carrier (if assigned) and capacity?

    If you can get the serial # from the box then you can go onto apple's AppleCare website to "check" warranty. It'll display capacity. If not, check for the unlock status of your phone, it'll also tell you capacity.

    Moreover, if you have the box, that will tell you as well.

    If you cannot turn it on *AT ALL*, and only have the phone itself (not the box,) then there is no way to identify the capacity. None of the numbers written on the back definitively identify capacity.

    But, if it will not turn on, and you are simply recycling it, it doesn't matter what the capacity is. And if it is your old phone, shouldn't you know what capacity it is?

    I think my 3GS used to have capacity on back, but obviously not now with newer models.
    out of curiosity, why won't your 4 turn on?
    have you tried a hard reset whilst it's plugged into power?

    Assuming you're talking about a GSM iphone 4 then you just pop out the sim tray and the serial number and imei number is printed there.
    Then just enter the imei number in any imei lookup website like this one:

    Guess and then send it off anyway. They'll soon correct you and adjust your payment accordingly.

    Did you have the 4 before the 4S was released? If so, it will be either 16 or 32GB, as 64GB was only introduced as an option with the 4S. Do you remember whether you bought the base capacity or not?
