Thread: Figuring out Firmware at Store

How would I determine the firmware of the iPhone at the store by looking at the box.
Is there a serial # pattern I should be looking for?

I found the following from some other forums.
If you want to know your iPhone firmware version without unwrap and open up the package, the serial number of iPhone wrote on a sticker on the box may provide you some hint. In fact, if you order a phone online from Apple, it’s possible to see what is your iPhone’s serial number when you check your invoice online, even before before the phone arrives at your hand.
A typical iPhone will have a serial number in the following format: 7T727XYZWH8
So if your 4th and 5th digits in iPhone serial number is less than 39 (38 or lower), it’s almost certain that the iPhone as firmware 1.0.2. If the number is greater than 39 (40 and higher), it’s also almost certain that the firmware in iPhone will be 1.1.1 or newer. Why I tell you to do this? Answer is to prevent 10% restocking if if you ever decide to return it w/out opening the box.
