Ebay member “jtmaxo” is selling a prototype version of the Apple iPhone 4, which is a test hardware built before the iPhone 4 went into mass production. “The posting refers to the device as a “prototype,” and notes that the serial number written on it is not valid when entered on Apple’s website.” The device has “DF1692” etched in the bottom right corner. According to This is my next, that unique code is meant to allow Apple to keep track of what prototype hardware belongs to a certain employee. » Prototype iPhone 4 For Sale On eBay?

It’s the night of the warnings, first with Fring and now this news.

Jonathan “NerveGas” Zdziarski, all round iPhone hacker and author of the “iPhone Open Application Development” has found out that when you restore your iPhone to any firmware version, your personal data isn’t deleted or overwritten. So if you ever sell or need to bring back your iPhone to apple, think twice about just restoring.

Your mails, contacts, and other data remain on the device after a restore!!

For now there’s no cleaning tool available yet, but i guess with this news, it won’t take very long.
