    Default How to spot a fake iPhone?

    My Son wants to buy an iPhone 4s and he has found one locally and is off to get it later. I'm a bit worried as I'm told there are loads of fake iPhones about? Not being familiar with a real one how will we know whether its a fake or not? The one he is looking at is brand new and on orange/EE. Any tips on how to check its a real iPhone?

    Same way you spot fake Rolex and Tag watches. Dunk it in boiling water, if the screen steams up, it's a fake.

    I would have thought it be more likely to be stolen than fake...

    The same way you spot fake ray bans ie: the deal is too good to be true. It's probably half inched, if so I do hope you'll shop the little opportunist.
