    I'm happy that it has a jailbreakable OS, but should I be worried that it's such an old phone? It says it was manufactured on week 31, July 30th or so. Is this anything to worry about, I hope it's not a refurb...even though I ordered from ATT through the phone brand new. Anyone else just get their iPhone? When was it manufactured?

    It's the same model, so I don't see what difference the time it was built would make.

    Can you even tell the difference between the new stock and refurbished phones?

    Yes it's jailbreakable, but you won't be able to save your SHSH blob, so if you ever need to restore you'll have no option but to install the latest firmware. Probably not a problem since the 4.1 jailbreak will hopefully be here soon.

    Most orders from Apple are shipped from China so your phone will usually only be a few days old when you get it.

    ATT will have a warehouse full of them and ship from TX or some other distribution point so getting one prior to 4.1 is more likely.

    Don't worry about it. You got a new iPhone, not a refurb. The OS is easy enough to update via iTunes if you don't want to jailbreak.

    My wife just received hers on 9/23 from AT&T that we ordered on 9/21 and it came with 4.1 installed. I did notice that her first 2 number that supposedly indicate what factory it was made in or wheter it is refurb is 7W instead of mine which is 88. I think refurbs are 5K, so what is 7W?
