In between the time that it was picked up and given to Gizmodo the person that found the device was able to use the phone and play on "Gray Powell's (apple employee that lost phone) facebook account! I am guessing that person was unaware of the remote wipe security feature...they should have taken pictures and documented the phone. That's what I would have done. Also Gizmodo was able to plug the phone into a computer and get the "connect to iTunes" screen...why we do not have a picture of that is also strange. I really hope that this is not a final production unit and just a Prototype. In my opinion it looks "cheap". The seams, the back, the buttons and the other "flaws" that make it significantly less elegant than the previous apple devices. Even with improvements like the HD screen, front facing camera I am not sexually attracted to this device. It looks more like a Samsung Eternity, LG Vu or a low-end HTC Android Phone. I am really torn between the upcoming Android deviced and the new iPhone. I had really high hopes for the next iPhone and I am still hoping that this is just a prototype. Unlike the Apple employee from the bar I do not have my beer goggles on and I am not going to be seduced into a serious 2yr app-driven relationship by an ugly device. I'd much rather get an iPad....

Wow, I really didn't think that it was legit. Maybe it is? If so, I'm kinda glad. I like the new design honestly and I bet it looks tons better in person.

I agree. You guys should try looking at the pictures on Engadget or something because the phone looks really nice. The current. design is old and boring. I was in love with it when I had the 3G, but now having the 3GS all I can day is that it's so boring...

Soooo let me see if I have this right. New Apple Iphone found on the ground in a bar.................NOT So the I phone is real and the head Honcho's send a "letter" not an e-mail....a handwritten letter...they still do that.........NOT Lastly, he kindly asks "where should I pick it up?".................Yeah RIGHT. No word (AKA...UPROAR) about how the phone got out, who is responsible etc......yeah RIGHT......NOT I'll believe it when I see it.

"Sent via email: email@example.com" "Please let me know where to pick the unit up"...Now in people speak..." Give us our sh*t back or we will sue your little company into the depths of hell!" Watch the obituaries, Mr. "Gray Powell" will probably be having a fatal accident very soon.

AT&T understands whom it is they are dealing with. They are trying to control a media fire. Gizmodo would speak all about what a nasty letter would say so they need to be discreet. In an effort to keep the fire from going ablaze as well as reveal any details to the upcoming release they will say as little as possible and hope the folks at gizmodo will respect their wishes. And rest assured the doofus over at AT&T Mobility is no longer on that project. More than likely he is at least suspended for a good week or four to at most, no longer employed.

I think the whole thing is legit. There are too many things that provide evidence: the internal parts made by usual Iphone parts makers, the device showed up in Itunes and Mac OS Profiler, and now Apple wants the device back. It is most certainly a prototype that a developer carried around and irresponsibly lost. June is just around the corner and I can't wait to see what happens.

CONSPIRACY THEORY:: This could be a viral marketing campaign...now every media outlet is talking about the iPhone and not negative apple stories like how the iPads are being delayed and having supply troubles....

Thank you for that comment yes global phones have sim slots. LtE is Coming an I hope everybody is ready for phones as we know it to change. Also if it is coming out with multiple carriers dont you think At&t will get it first? Just Curious why if a new iphone comes out people wouldn't think At&t will have first choice a statement I heard was the iphone is the new RazR... Makes perfect since for every one...
