This is a cheap iPhone knock off, not made by Apple. It looks like a cheap knock off, probably for Europe/China, probably capable for use with T-Mobile here in the US. It looks like a piece of junk to me, in all honesty, although it may not be. I've never seen/heard of it before and I order phones for a living.

Definitely be sure to either A) check out this website's return policy explicitly or B) find a place to play with it first. Given that there's not a brand name on it that I can see it will be difficult to find in a store.

You will probably also find on that site the infamous:

iFone
iPone
myPhone
iPhore

etc... you get the point.

Chinese knockoff.

I believe these phones are made by a Chinese company called CECT. They are cheap iPhone knock-offs. They offer no support, and have no stores in the US (in fact, I believe they have no stores, period). I would advise you to avoid them.

As for the website you have listed, they are well known for peddling in cheap fakes and knock-offs from China. They have become quite brazen in recent years, even modeling some of their fakes after Nokia models and calling them the genuine article. I would not be looking for anything from that website; I don't trust them at all...

It would be nice to have a mini external keyboard in a case for when my hands hurt though.

THESE ARE EXCELLENT PHONES. I CURRENTLY USE ONE WITH T-MOBILE AND I AM VERY IMPRESSED. CAMERA IS EXCELLENT AND SO ARE FEATURES. WOULD SUGGEST BUYING OFF EBAY INSTEAD OF THE ONLINE SITES.

It's an iPhone knock-off... fake...

HiPhone is NOT iPhone.

Quad Band-Dual Card? Sure sign of a fake.

QWERTY keypad? no chance in hell of that on an iPhone.
