    Some of these knockoff phones are just nuts in terms of their capabilities.

    Fed up with the wait. And its at like 3rd/half the cost..

    Has everything the iP4 has, minus the price tag and wait time..

    I can't believe someone actually bought one. And is bragging about it.

    wow, I thought that you were being sarcastic!

    Is it actually ok? I have always been wary of chinese knock offs since a friend brought the worst iphone knock-off i had ever seen back from hong kong (it even had a resistive screen:eek:)

    Also, what about all those stories of the batteries exploding and killing people?:confused:

    A 3GS is $50. Think about it. It's not the hardware that makes an iPhone great, it's the software, same with Macs and OS X. Sure, the phone will work, just not well. If that's ok with you, then pick one up. Unless you're doing it for an image thing, then that's just pathetic.

    The plastic housing is alone to turn off anyone with any sense.
