    28th Production week, 2007. 200 MHZ CPU speed, A1203, 8GB. To know more, we need more information. Why do you want to know?

    What more information would you like?

    Specifically I'd like to know more about the production date. Was it one of the first iPhone 2G's sold? Or one of the last? Obviously it was made in 2007 so at least it was within the first year. What is the earlier known "production week" for an iPhone 2G?

    I'm not sure how many production weeks there were for the iphone 8gb. I can tell you that, this specific one was produced in July. Why are you inquiring about this info anyway?

    Just bought a sealed one to keep it as a collector's item (or potential investment). Never been opened.

    It's not one of the first ones made, the iPhone was released on June 29th, 2007 and your phone was made in the first week of July, 2007. Therefore the initial influx of production models were already in the hands of the first customers before yours was made. It was made fairly early in the cycle, but definitely not in the first group.

    Thanks, good to know. Just being in that first few months group is good enough for me.

    Out of curiosity, how much did you pay for it?

    Wow! I've got a couple of empty original iPhone boxes, think I'll fill them with 135g worth of weight and go over and visit my buddy with a shrink wrap machine...

    Where did you buy it? I hope it wasn't craigslist. If it was eBay I would print out the listing information just encase if it turns out there's nothing in it. You could then open a case on eBay and demand your money back.
