    Default Where is my Iphone4 from?


    I recently got a factory unlocked Iphone4 and im trying to figure out if its a UK, HK model or which country its from.
    Is there a way to tell from the serial or IMEI number where its from?

    Thanks in advance,

    Did you buy it used or new? If used, i would imagine the best way to figure this out without alot of research is to find out if the person you bought it from bought it new...if so, then that should tell you where it was purchased (based on where that person was from).

    Not to be a smart ***...but they are all from China.

    If you ask me, it really doesn't make a difference. They are all from Foxconn's factory in Guangzhou. I bought mine brand new, no contract and unlocked via store.apple.com/sg and it was shipped via DHL fresh with sender being Foxconn and address is within China.

    They also sell them factory unlocked in Canada if you buy them right from the apple store. I got one from them.

    All IMEI numbers will point to China. Only regional settings are changed set by network provider.
