My source in China informed me that they could provide me with samples of fake iPhone units. He said that the "poor man's iPhone" has really stood up to its name as it was poorly manufactured, poorly designed and poorly developed. It's a dual SIM phone like many Made in China phones.
I was also informed that they have a working unit of cracked iPhone, meaning they have an "open line" unit. He said that there's a risk of converting my iPhone into a paper weight should the process of cracking it go wrong. I told him to email me how to do it... it's worth the risk.
