    So, that's pretty much the question, if i buy a new iPhone now in a retailer in the U.S., with which firmware does it comes?
    Thanks in advice :D

    First, search.
    Second, it depends. I bought from AT&T store in Orange County on 11/23 and received one with FW 1.1.1. Friend bought from Apple @ Irvine Spectrum on 11/24 and received one with FW 1.1.2.

    Unfortunately I am not sure how to tell but I venture to guess if you buy from an AT&T store the chances of you getting it with 1.1.1 are higher because they're not going through stock as fast as the Apple Retail stores are.

    I ordered one from Apple Online on 11/23, firmware=1.1.2

    You can tell by the new startup/setup icon (looks like a cable and itunes logo)

    I heard any starting W44 are shipping with 1.1.2. I bought my sis one which was W46 and it came with 1.1.2 out of the box.

    Thanks for all your responses, i'd try to get one from an AT-T store and try my luck since i'll need an unlock, or i'll otherwise wait for a decent way to unlock the sim on the new brandware.
    But again, thank you all :D

    Out of curiosity what screens did those of you with recent online iPhone purchases from Apple get?

    Type *3001#12345#* and call and hit versions and it will say the panel number.

    Basically I am interested in knowing what screens the latest iPhones have now compared to week 42-44 UK phones.

    I got my iPhone on Tuesday and it seems to be a week 43. Panel ID is 7459072. No idea what that means ;)

    That means you got a good panel with good colours - providing of course there are no dead pixels spoiling the screen...

    Very lucky! If you were in the UK I would take comfort in the fact that I may also get a good screen but seeing as the US/UK phones are most likely not connected in anyway I suppose I can't!

    Cool :) The screen is very, very good
    How can you tell this from the screen reference?
