A friend of mine just bought a "new" iPhone 4 from Amazon (or better: from a merchant that sells through Amazon) - and having this iPhone now in front of me there is not doubt that this is a new, never been used iPhone. However, when I check the service and support coverage with the serial number on Apple's website I get these results: - Valid Purchase Date: A validated purchase date lets Apple quickly find your product and provide the help you need. - Telephone Technical Support: Expired. - Repairs and Service Coverage: Expired I'm not really surprised that this iPhone has no warranty anymore - it's not directly from Apple or Verizon and with $295 it was not very expensive. No complaint here. But I'm still wondering: Is it possible to find out when this iPhone has been bought and when the warranty expired?
