How to Tell if an iPhone is Real or Fake:
© UsediPhones.net, November 28, 2009
Fake iPhones or cloned iPhones are getting harder and hard to distinguish from the real iPhone. We have people who are very curious to know the difference between a real GENUINE Apple iPhone and a clone or fake iPhone.
We constantly track the latest trends and have tried our best to EXCLUDE fake iPhones from our other pages. If you want to see what fake iPhones look like, go to our Fake iPhone page.
Some of the sellers are upfront that they are selling fake iPhones. But there are other sellers who are trying to disguise the phone as genuine. Most of the sellers still put the model as "Apple iPhone", so you have to read the title or listing to pick up on any clues that you may be looking at a fake iPhone.
