    It's means you've been marked for extermination.

    That's the reject sticker. Those are normally tossed into the shredder because they have too many problems to fix. Sounds like this one fell on the floor and was picked up and shipped by mistake....









    :D

    Everyone in this thread is awesome :p

    But if you must know, its the signal for the updated wall plug. The original 3G wall plug was recalled and the replacements all have a green dot. The box with the green dot just signifies that the box contains the updated plug.

    Now, go back to your bottle...

    Damn you guys are gullible. The green dot on the old 3G boxes meant that the iPhone was one of the 'new' ones which had the very minor revisions to hardware as well as the newer (non dangerous) wall charger.

    I suspect it means something similar on the new ones.

    Dumb asses! :cool:

    My guess is thats how the store decided to sort them internally so they wouldnt mix 16 and 32 GB phones in the wrong boxes.

    The green dot is like the "W" license plates here in Minnesota. They signify that you are a booze pig and that ossifer friendly can pull you over just because your plates start with a "W".

    You are now marked for as long as you own that phone. The goverment is tracking your every move. :eek:

    Honestly it actually has to do with the charger. I don't know if you guys remember, but sometime last year Apple recalled all of their chargers and mailed out new ones that didn't get the prongs stuck in the walls. If you look at your charger it has this same dot and the packaging is marked as well so they know that the boxes do not have the dangerous wall adapters.

    My shipping package has Bad Pal written on the side of it... what the hell does that mean? My Iphone is a bad pal?

    Plus I have some other tracking number on the box and when I looked it up, it was for someone else's iphone delivery... so somehow ups accidentally put an extra shipping label on it and left the person's name and address. I don't think I feel safe with how ups ships things...

    Sir, I am from the government. I'm not at liberty to discuss the green sticker, or any sticker, but since I am a liberal, I feel duty bound to tell you not to ask any further questions about the green sticker, and to be VERY, VERY glad the sticker is, in fact, green.

    +1 ^^^ Along the lines of "scratch & sniff" the green sticker simply means: The Smell of VICTORY, First Thing In The Morning!:p:p:p
