Not beeing economically able to actually buy the new iPhone, how can I impress my friends and family by posting status messages with the "via iPhone" postfix?
You would have to create a Facebook application. When you sign up for a new application using the Facebook API, I think the name you give your application will be the name that shows up in the "via" part of the post. I doubt you'll be able to register your application under the name iPhone, but you could maybe do one that is just as "cool".
See the status.set method on how to set the status using the API. This requires some programming, but the API has libraries available for most programming languages.
PostedVia is a simple, easy-to-use tool that lets you fake where your Facebook status was posted from. You can choose from a huge variety of these delivery methods including Carrier Pigeon, Magic, Morse Code, and Mind Control. Surprise your friends and family with these funny Facebook status updates!
You can use websites like e.g. http://fbstatusvia.com to post via almost anything
