    Hey everyone,

    I have a question regarding a certain iPhone 2G that I have.

    I typed in the serial number into two separate sites, and in both cases, found out that it was manufactured in February of 2009 even though this model was discontinued in the summer of 2008!

    From one of the two:
    Can anyone explain this? Comparing this particular iPhone to another one I have on hand, the screen looks much brighter and warmer.

    Thanks!

    Is the iPhone you have an Apple Care replacement unit? If so, that's why. For Apple its easier to give you a new one rather than fix your broken iPhone.

    Apple still makes those phones for replacements.

    Oh okay, thanks for all the help! That makes sense now. If I were to guess then, I would say the warmer screen is due to the fact that it has one of the 3G/3GS screens instead of the original on the 2G.

    Reporting in again, I have some more surprising results.

    In a side by side speed test, it seems the 2009 one is consistently faster than my other one, which was manufactured in late 2007.

    Very curious.
