    Some people have JUST received replacements phones with zero problems. Anyone who has just received a new replacement phone and cannot replicate same problems as previous phone please post first five digits of serial numbers.

    Should be 8xx32 and above or 7xx32 and above. I have a theory.

    Tell you when I get some digits. I can correlate certain dates with something I've read though.

    Why can't you just share your theory first?

    Because then someone else would start another thread calling it their theory.

    I'm not the search police, but there are other threads collecting serial numbers and issues if they have them. They will give you more data.

    This doesn't make any sense. "32" corresponds to the week of the year. Unless you're from the future, the 32nd week of 2010 hasn't happened yet. It's in August. We're not done with July yet.

    There goes your theory.

    And just for kicks. My replacement was a Week 27.

    In that case mine was built first week 2010 - dont think that's right

    oops might help if I could type 88021 - therefore built week 21 I assume

    When he attenuated his antenna, his iPhone sent him back in time and now he's trying to find the iPhone that can send him back to the future.

    Sorry for the confusion, I shoulda reviewed the info from the phone, I was looking at the wrong store receipt. Hope this is satisfactory.

    86025= returned ip4
    81027= replaced ip4

    FYI, my phone: 86028


    Now, to the original thread starter: What's your theory?

    82027 received 07/17/10

    Replacement SN received at Apple Store on 07/17/10: 82027...... Mine was replaced because it had 1 bar or No Service, (with a bumper on), on my desk at home while my iPad 3G & my daughter's 3GS had 4-5 bars consistently. My previous 2G, 3G & 3GS all had excellent coverage here as well. The replacement iPhone 4 has 4-5 bars now reflecting exactly what my iPad 3G & 3GS have.
