    yay for you.

    Unless I missed a story were Apple halted production, they are continually being manufactured every week of the year (including refurbs).

    I was at an Apple store last night and they offered too exchange mine and the one they brought out was a week 26, new sealed in box. I said no thanks, I'll wait. Can't understand how they have week 26's still new in box.

    because everyone keeps saying "No Thanks, I'll wait", they can't get rid of it.

    Sorry guys, haha. Was just wondering what the factory 66 was, cause I've never seen that before. Also the 4S at the end... Every SN i've seen has ended in 4T?

    Just bought a week 25 at our local store

    Just ended up with a week 25 here. While it was a good week for screens (not yellow) I am pretty concerned that it sat around uncharged for too long and the battery is shot. Maxing at just 4:30 total usage, and draining on idle pretty fast. Applecare offering to replace with no hassle. Just wonder if Applecare would send a newer phone than the local Apple stores seem to have.

    It has already taken me a few hours at the store getting a non-yellow screen, so don't want to start that over again.

    Just exchanged my phone bought on release day with a week 40 iPhone 4 after some problems. Assuming this is likely a new phone, not a refurb...?
