    I just bought a new HTC One SV (yes, I know this phone is like 2.5 years old, but it's hard to find an even somewhat small phone with 4g). Anyway, I bought it brand new, and I thought it was supposed to ship with ICS 4.0.4 but when I looked in the settings it has Jelly Bean 4.1.2 installed. The reconditioned status is set to "NO" and the package was unopened and appeared to be untampered with (the pull strip was in place for me to pull and open). When I called the local boost mobile store and asked if it had ever been activated on the Boost Mobile network, they said it had not been. Should I be concerned that someone was trying to pass a used phone off as new? Or did some of the later phones to roll off the assembly line come pre-loaded with jelly bean?

    Edit: Ha! When in doubt, read the supporting documents. I finally opened the little folder thing and the first page says "Great News! Your HTC One SV device is loaded with the latest Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system." Ah I feel like a moron...but I'll leave this out there on the off chance anyone else has a similar question...
