    Everyone kept saying that the 5c shells couldn't be real because of the lack of FCC and other certification printing. Well the phones are here now, and still don't seem to have the regulatory notifications.....did the reason why these can now be eliminated ever get revealed?

    Also it looks like the 5s still has regulatory printing, so why the difference?

    Edit: Never mind! LOL...just looked at the 5c page and when you select your color, it shows front and back of the phone and it looks like the printing IS on there! But none of the pics with the case show just see the partial "hon".

    All iPhones from now forward are/will be counterfeit.

    Saves Apple a boatload of money.

    More likely that they're on the phone, but all the promotional stuff on Apple's site was made before haven them getting the printing.

    Since the phones are not in anyone's hands yet, there's no way to say one way or another if the stuff is on the back of the phones

    Actually the printing is on there....If you go to where you start to look at the phone and then select the color you want, it shows the front and back of phone in that color and the printing is there on both the 5c and 5s. The printing is going to look horrible with the new cases for 5C....they should have found a way to have no holes in this area or carry the printing onto the case as well to have it match up.
