    Maybe they meant 4m sold to suppliers.

    If Apple said they sold 4m iPhones (up to mid January), and they only shipped that many and didn't actually sell them, then they could get into serious trouble.



    Perhaps you should take that english lesson... and maybe a remedial math lesson while you're at it...



    You should take some legal lessons --- the final word is in the SEC filings. And Apple's SEC filings are based on "shipping" numbers.



    There is a reason that before every keynote speech, they put a bunch of legal sentences saying that everything is based on forward looking statements and you must read the SEC filings to get the real information.

    I live in Thailand and EVERYONE has an iPhone!!!!!!!!!!!! They are unlocked and working(not being used as iTouches) When you buy one it is already unlocked all you do is put you sim in it and go. So I'm sure this is the case in other parts of the world so yes its very possible that there are is this many missing. Oh and yes the phones are real not copies. Took one to an Apple Store in the US to check.

    I've said it in another thread...



    If the phones are in a supplier's hands and there is no provision for return of unsold product, then legally, the phones are "sold". They could be sitting in an AT&T warehouse, but if AT&T can't send them back to Apple, then it's not Apple's concern, except that AT&T won't be buying any new ones soon...
