    I just got my tracking number for UPS and it shows that my iPhone 3GS is currently in Dallas, Texas. I've heard rumors that if the phone isn't shipped straight from China they are most likely going to be defective (i.e: Yellow tinted screen, uneven bezel, etc.). Is that true?

    By the way, I ordered my iPhone 3GS July 21, 2009 and it's estimated delivery date is July 23, 2009. That's fast! :)

    Edit: Sorry guys, it was a stupid question.

    The iPhones are manufactured in China.... when you order the iPhone you are ordering it from Apple therefore it ships from one of their warehouses not directly from the manufacturer in china..

    Do you realize how expensive shipping would be if every individual order was shipped from china?

    That's all conspiracy theories.

    You do know that Steve Jobs was on the grassy knoll, right? :D

    It's true - all phones not shipped direct from China are defective. Seriously? As if quality control is centralized to one location? I hope your USB power plug has a green dot - because I've heard rumors that if it doesn't - yours will explode! ;)

    It was smuggled into the US so it's doesn't show where it originated. More then likely a fake Chinese copy made in Japan. Part of the #2 lunch combo. iPhone, LoMein and won ton soup.

    Okay, we've established that the OP asked a silly question. No reason to keep badgering him until he never comes back to the site. Okay?

    Sorry

    Sorry guys. I guess I didn't really think it through. LOL. I have to watch what I post from now on. I'm new but that is no excuse. Thanks for the sarcastic but speedy responses. :) Is there anything you guys recommend on me doing for my iPhone 3GS before I first turn it on or once I turn it on? I have no idea since I've never owned an iPhone. :confused:

    Before turning it on give it a nice glass of wine and some chocolate covered strawberries. It will become much more receptive that way. After you turn it on, be gently and sweet. The first time is always difficult.

    That's how I figured it would be MisterEdF. I'll try and take it easy. ;)

    If that's the case, why is Fedex showing SHENZHEN, CHINA as it's point of departure?

    Proof:
    All shipment travel activity is displayed in local time for the location Date/Time Activity Location DetailsAug 17, 2009 9:51 PM
    Left FedEx origin facility
    SHENZHEN CNAug 17, 2009 7:11 PMPicked upSHENZHEN CNPackage received after FedEx cutoffAug 17, 2009 2:32 AMShipment information sent to FedEx

    It will have taken 10 business days from order time to door delivery. Not really sure how $10 for expedite shipping helps. What's worst is that the local Apple store have plenty of iPhones in stock, and yet can't be shipped from there.
