    I'm not sure if this was said or stated already, but some of you noticed that the serial number and IMEI were gone from the phone. Well now its found!

    If you pop open your SIM tray and turn it around, your serial number and IMEI number are written on the small edges of the tray! I just found this out when i opened it up.

    I guess apple wanted to keep it in a safer place, harder to scratch away now that its not on the phones exterior, but not in easy access.

    It doesnt make sense tho, What if i was to buy a new sim card tray on ebay because this one broke then my serial number and imei cannot be found unless the phone is powered on.

    Just think of all of those people that said the pictures of the 3G iPhone were fake because there was no serial on the case

    Yea i can't believe that black iPhone (the one on the keyboard of a mac laptop) that was all around the internet was thought to be fake... guess not. Everybody disliked it too, but now everyone loves it!

    I just thought the serial number had been raptured in a sync with the big cloud. :D
