    I got a replacement BB in December and even though it looked brand new I
    could tell it was refurbished. I just noticed that the first page under the 'About'
    Options actually says the phone is refurbished and the date it was refurbished as
    well. I thought I would share.

    also, try going into options->status and typing "buyr". this will bring up the total data and voice usage on the phone. compare these numbers to what you have used since you got it and you will know if it was ever issued to anyone else.

    I bought my BB off E-bay i'm glad to know it's not a refurb. I've looked at my "about" screen before and i've never noticed that was there before

    I don't see anything about refurb on the about screen of my 9700.

    Typing buyr on the status screen displays the following extra lines:
    Data Usage: Exceeded 1048576K
    Voice Usage: 2:19:11:37
    IT Policy: Disabled

    I got the phone in January.

    My About data before the small print:

    Why is my WLAN version so much lower than the example above, when I'm on the latest OS leak?
