    If this picture is legit, I bet they opened it anyway. Who wouldn't? Then probably when they did, something probably popped out and started screaming "YOU HAVE VIOLATED THE INSTRUCTIONS PRINTED ON THE FRONT OF THIS BOX. NOW SELF DESTRUCTING"

    That would be creepy.

    just 5 minutes with that box is all I need. At least give us the weight of the box for us to determine what lies within

    Edit: Nah, I looked at the picture again, I don't buy it.

    Yay! Go Aussies!

    I can't wait to walk into the Apple shop at home and buy the new iPhone instead of sh*tting my self for 2 weeks straight after spending $700 off eBay like I did for my old one.

    so if theyre supposedly shipping 3G phones right now, I guess its safe to assume that they have a gold 2.0 firmware already done, correct?

    Fake. They could have at least put the label on the top of the box and not the bottom. They would have been taken a little more seriously. Plus it looks like some crappy piece of paper and not even a quality sticker (which is what Apple would use on a box).
    Hmm...

    i know at walmart, when we get something new, the box will say "do not sell before...", but for Wii's the box says "tab" which means it is being held for the next walmart ad, but any box that comes in to walmart, we open and look at it. i remember when we got GTA 4 in, my Dept. manager just handed me a copy of it, lol.

    Man, that would be too tempting for me. I couldn't do it. Chances are I would keep it all to myself though, so there would be no issue. :-)

    notice the text on the mailing label:

    looks like the boxes in california from the post above this one on the news section.

    i'd open it and reseal it. if the iphone was in there it'd be completely worth the risk..

    im sure someone out there opened it.

    I reckon the box is real. I work for Optus in Australia and my national manager already has one of the 3G iPhones. But he won't show it to anyone! He has confirmed they will be sold here in July though
