    The quantity of lead in those things is almost surely deadly. Do you really want to be handling that all day?

    Sadly I had a friend who had one (not of his own doing but as a gift from family in China)... it was awesome, you couldn't answer calls for some reason and he'd have to call you back. The touch screen rarely recognized your finger correctly. And overall was a pile of crap... it did however say "iPhone" on the back and "made by Apple"... which was an awesome feature.

    He tossed it and got a real iPhone eventually. :)

    Does it have tethering and mms enabled? Does it have water sensors that can get tripped?

    No, if you get water on it the phone actually explodes. Its constructed from 35% pure potassium.

    Hey, it allows you to install 2 sim cards!!

    Okay, why would we need two sim cards? :confused:

    The only other difference from the iPhone was that they removed all the water sensors. It's toilet proof. Oh, and the case is pre-cracked to give it that shabby chic look.

    I always wonder why these guys use such ghetto and ugly fonts on their rip offs.

    Why would they want to copy the v1 iPhone (or something close to it) and not the current 3GS model?:eek::eek::eek:

    I *actually* owned one of these iPhone knock-off's. I had the HiPhone, and I owned it for under 23 hours. I flipped it immediately. It sucked. Flat out sucked. This was before I got my 2G iPhone. The $150 price tag pulled me in, the quality of the UI, device, etc pushed me away, right away. Never again.

    My sciphone has a light leak, yellow screen, and the bezel is uneven. Should I return it?

    I went to the website, and they are selling a pink "nano" phone. And they say it's made by apple...

    No screen, but it was kinda cute...
