my wifes iphone wasnt working right its had some problems staying online and it isnt old we got them 3 days after christmas. Verizon sent us what i think is a refurb mainly because it says that this device is a "LIKE new replacement" i think thats F-up i called verizon to find out whats the deal. She said oh verizon doesnt refurb iphones they send them to apple and they refurb them.I think im going to verizon to raise a stink, but is there a way to find out anything from the device from the serial number. my wife said she heard something about the serial number tells you when it was made. i think im going to google it but i thought id ask you experts out there

If you have an issue, go directly to Apple. Much better than VZW. I had an issue and Apple cleared it up straight away. Even if it's an Apple refurb, it still carries the same Apple warranty and undergoes the same quality control. My iP4 was a refurb and it was a perfect, solid device.

I was told by a friend who works at a apple store that they do not use refurbs, it was explained that if I were to buy a brand new phone and it messed up in a day or so how is it fair that I get a refurb?? Plain answer is that it's not fair at all.

I have just brought one i-phone. I think Apple is well ahead of rivals in building brand loyalty among its users. And as the barcode generator is very useful to our daily life. Maybe, you can manage to make a barcode generator by yourself for your phone, too. And I have just brought a barcode generator component so as to make a barcode generator by myself, and it works well.KEEPAUTOMATION Free Online Code Reader.

Mine was replaced at the Apple Store a week after I had received my initial one (which had a serious battery drain issue.) My S/N also begins with C39, and it is better than the original one I had in all ways. I asked the Genius Bar guy who helped me and he said it was a brand new phone, not a refurb.
