    I'm just curious if anyone can clarify the significance of the FCC ID. To my understanding, same models should share the same FCC ID?

    My co-worker has an iPhone 4 from launch day with an designated FCC ID of BCG-E2380A; I got mine today and has an FCC ID of BCG-E2380B. We both got contract-free unlocked 32Gb models. What does that mean?

    The 3Gs has different ending letters as well. No one knows why but it doesn't really seem to matter.

    Fortunetly, I have both iPhone 4 (BCG-E2380A and BCG-E2380B). Interestingly I can easily replicate the Antennagate issue on the BCG-E2380A whereas I still could not replicate the Antennagate issue on BCG-E2380B!!!
    (Note that the IC is also different on both phone)

    As per FCC records, Apple submitted BCG-E2380A on March and April whereas applied for BCG-E2380B on June.

    Could you check this as well??

    Settings, General, About, Regulatory.

    Bought my iP4 early September. It was old stock, as I got v4.0.1. FCC ID is the A designation.

    cheers, ive got a e2380B, bought about a week ago (Italy). Antennagate is quite evident inside my home, signal drops from 4 to 1 bars if held on that side, outside it seems less evident, dropping from 5 to 4 bars. Not sure wether i should try asking for a replacement or keep this one which hasnt got any other issues (updated to 4.1 this morning): any suggestions?

    What factory are they from? Perhaps different factory results in a different FCC ID?

    So I got this phone that looks like an iP4 with the same ID - FCC ID: BCG-E2380A; the box says Phone 4. I'm wondering if this is a knock-off iP4 and if it is, what kinda software can I use on it?

    Also, it says 32gb in the back, no Apple logo, but with 295.5k internal storage o_O

    If anyone could assist me.

    That is a knock off, not a real iPhone.
