    Use this website to determine when your iPhone was made. Just type in the serial number. After that, list any problems you've had or if you've been problem free. Also add when you bought your 4S. Problems like:

    Loose home button
    Loose sleep/wake button
    Yellow Tint
    Light leak/bleeding

    Can a mod delete this before someone actually falls for this?

    It's real. I've used it many times before, but I can see how people would think it's fake.

    ----------

    It does actually tell the production date. There are numbers in your serial number which indicate that stuff.

    Reach 9 the site is legit. It just tells you the build week, build factory ect. After typing in your serial #. I've used it several times in the last couple of years.

    This is a legitimate website. It pops up from time to time here on MacRumors, especially around the launch of a new iDevice.

    I don' think there is another website that can check via the serial number, or am I wrong?

    Woah woah woah, relax there guys.

    It looked sketch to me, and I've been seeing a lot of fraudulent activities going on regarding iDevices recently on the web.

    Guess I was wrong, my apologies.
