    I bought from a reputable eBay seller in the US who had plenty of positive feedback on the iPhone. The back plate of my unit states:

    "Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China."

    Is this legit? I suppose many products sold in the US are made in China anyway.

    I've heard of iPhone clones. How do we distinguish the genuine from a clone?

    If it were assembled in USA, price would be higher.

    I havent seen any fake iPhones, but ebay is full of fake iPod shuffles.
    People list them as Apple iPod Shuffle - and call it an OEM version. It looks idential and has identical packaging. The only way to tell is it says you dont need to use iTunes!

    There are iphone lookalikes, but so far there are no "clones". All the available knockoffs either have buttons on the front or have a totally different interface and are not touch sensitive. Go to the Apple website, or to a store and compare yours to what you see there.
    I'm so glad I don't have to meet The Internet People.

    Here are a couple of examples of clones:





    They are pretty easy to distinguish.
