    Nope. Also, no iPhone ran 10.4. The iPhone OS, although based on the 10.5 kernel, is very different - and during its original development, Apple made it clear that the kernel was 10.5, even though 10.5 hadn't been released yet.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Nevermind the OS, Where do you get off saying "Believe me you can never figure out which one is real" Those things are junk, That's like saying you can't tell the difference between a fake and authentic Rolex.

    If China actually made a high quality knock-off of anything everyone would be buying it.

    As cwa said, the iPhone never ran anything less than 10.5, though 10.5 didn't come out til fall of that year (that the iPhone came out). In any case, it is officially called iPhone OS, and the latest version is 3.1.2

    Those knockoffs from China are totally nothing like the actual iPhone. How can you not tell the difference? Just pondering that one.
