Long story short, I go through Iphones like a person goes through toilet paper when having diarrhea.


My iphone was stolen 6 months ago, a day before my birthday. It was custom colored. Today, I found it on craigslist for sale. I know it's mine because I'm the only one to have such a unique combination of colors on the phone.

I have had two iphones since then, and I can't pull up the Serial number through Itunes. Is there anyway I can retreive the entire history of serial numbers for my iphones?

At&T claims they can't pull up that far back of history..I have the back up still on my computer, and I know the date. The police officer retreived my phone from the kid, and is holding it for me until I can prove it's mine..

Please help!

iPhone 4
