I'll be interested to hear how one would know if their phone is refurbished. I know in some businesses they change the serial number on refurbished items. It'll be interesting to know. Hopefully, someone will chime in soon.G2 : Optimus G Pro : G Pad 8.3 : Nexus 7 LTE

This might be a Sprint only thing, but if you dial ##786# it will pull up a Reverse Logistics Support screen (if this doesn't work you could try*#*#786#*#*). Look for "Reconditioned Status", it'll say no or list a date. Mine says no. It was a replacement phone I got after having a USB charging issue. After I got this replacement I checked SNdeep Info and found that it was manufactured 12 days before I picked it up (so it probably isn't a refurb). I've always wondered though if they change the serial numbers so that a phone appears to be new.

I'll just ask this Tech Guy I know to help me about the refurbish question.
Anyway, how do I find out what carrier unlocked this phone is.
The two previous units I gotten had logo's on the back of the phone. One had a T-Mobile logo and a at&t logo.
This one doesn't have any logo on it except beats audio. All the guy said was that this is a Nz unlocked phone. I didn't actually pick this replacement up, my Dad did.
I was at school, so I couldn't ask the store employees.
