The Chinese do a good job with fakes. In some cases they are really very, very good. I am a ham radio operator and they make portable radios for $50 that would cost $300+ here in the States. They give them different names and a different case but all of the tech was clearly stolen.

i have ever bought a fake iPhone 4s a month ago, but it's damaged after two weeks i bought, and its functions are really disappointed very much... i have to say, i bought it because i don't know it's so fake. and now, i know ,so i won't buy it again! IMO, i prefer to spend a little more to buy a genuine iPhone 4s. Besides, i headed that iPhone 5 will be released at Oct. of this year, is it true?

There are people that ruin our conversations from Ask&Share. We talk about one thing, and they post something that has nothing to do it, like wsnpao (previous answer) and there are many posts were I saw the same thing. It's annoying! Can someone do something about it ?

The fake iphones don't run iOS. That means that it would be completely incompatible with the apple ecosystem. Additionally, because there are no quality control for these ripoff companies, you'll end up with a $400 paper weight after a month or so...if you're lucky.
You're better off just buying a used one on Ebay for the same price.

No. Part of the price you pay is for R&D for the next generation of what ever, You are screwing your self in the long run if you buy the fakes. Not to mention does your phone have built in spy or mal ware? Who do you go to when you have a problem? They come with out warrentys or or service.
And now for the tenchial side what about copy right and patten issues. You are basicly paying for and using stolen intulectual property rights. Which is legal no where you are in the world. You are giving away American Pay checks too.

Absolutely not. The actual cost of materials in the iphone will show you that they are not making huge profit margins. They make their money from the cell phone providers. Not to mention you will not have a warranty and the phone is made to LOOK like an iphone not actually be like an iphone. They just want your money. Thats all
