I got my RMA'd iPhone back from Apple.
It's a new one with different serial number.

As I took it out of the slim box, I turned it on by accident and didn't put my SIM card in yet. I noticed it connected to my WiFI and isn't it suppose to not if it doens't have a SIM?

Let me know.

Perfectly normal. You don't need the SIM for WiFi to work (after the phone has been initially activated).
