    Use your brain and walk from the deal, there's iPhones for sale all over the place, there's no need to chance it.

    That page is for people who have registered their phones. That's the only way you'd get a response as to how much warranty is left on it. An unsold device hasn't had a warranty period started yet.

    Regardless, as everyone above has said, this is something you should avoid. If you run into a problem it's going to go badly for you very quickly.

    No. For Apple, as soon as you buy something, the serial number is updated with the date you purchased the item.

    This was the case when I bought my MacBook. When I got home, I put it in, just for fun, and it said that I bought it that day.

    Think about what you're saying and then re-read the original post. This is not a legitimate sales channel. The person is in China. He's not buying it from Apple. What you're saying is true... if it were a dealer/corporate sales channel.
