Check the gallery and see if there are any pictures taken by customers in the store.
Had a friend get a "new" EVO swapped out and I checked the gallery while still in the store and there were random images that customers took while messing with the phone.
It was a friggen display model that was reboxed!
Either that, or count the rings on the battery...

This takes you to a status list. If you scroll down, it will say Reconditioned Status. If it's a refurb, it will say yes., and the date it was certified for Reconditioned status below that (when Sprint or whoever gave it the okay to be used as a refurb).

Well I got my second replacement today n if it's new, well it will come in the box brand new, the lady fr sprint when she was activating it told me she was surprised to see me get a new phone, she said she could tell by the dec# that it was new, that she never heard someone get a new replacement Evo before so i guess I better feel lucky

Unfortunately today is the last day me and my launch day evo will be together... getting my replacement tomorrow due to a failing charging port. Best believe I will be trying ##786# in store to see what's up.

they best way to know if you got a brand new is if you get a box like you did when you purchased your brand new phone , if they just sent you the phone with charger it a refurbished one but if they send you a phone and all components then its a new one

OP, just curious if you had to pay for a replacement phone. I dropped my phone on friday and shattered the screen. Saturday I brought it in to the nearest sprint service center and they just replaced my whole front panel, free of charge. I was stoked on this cause it meant I didnt get a refurb. and it only took an hour.
