Visualized: Verizon iPhone customer shipped a device in test mode

If these screens look vaguely familiar, that's because they're essentially the same ones Apple has been using to test the iPhone's various components since day one. Problem is, this is apparently a production Verizon iPhone that was shipped out to an actual customer this week, which... well, let's just put it this way: it's not going to help you play Angry Birds any faster. They've tried to restore the phone using iTunes to no avail, so here's the million-dollar question: collectible or worthless return? Hit the gallery for a couple more shots.
