    This thread is intended for those purchasing an iPhone soon (me :p).

    Wondering those who recently purchased a refurbished 8GB iPhone within the past 2 weeks, what was the build week?

    To make this simple, please post:
    1) When you purchased the refurb iPhone?
    2) What build week?

    Since there is already a thread on screen issues, this can make it easier to browse.

    I purchased my 8 gb refurb on Friday the 14th and received it last Thursday the 20th (Although it would've come on Wednesday the 19th had the stupid Fedex driver been able to find my street. It was like having to wait until December 26th to open up my Christmas presents).

    As for your second question I'm not sure what you mean. Are you asking when it was built? If so how do I find that out? Or when I was billed for it?

    You'll have to look at the serial number. The 4th and 5th digits are the production week. Example: 7R733######.

    Mine's a refurb. The first 8 digits of the serial number are numbers. There's no letters-every other iPhone I've seen has the second digit as a letter. Anyone know what this indicates?

    Just received my Refurbished 8GB iPhone that I ordered Monday.

    It's a Week 34, with 5755136 LCD.

    It is FLAWLESS! I got lucky, I guess!
