    Just got the iPhone 4 and sync'd with iTunes and restored my profile on it. However, my iPhone now says I've used 14 hours of talk time on the iPhone 4 when that's not even close. I've used it for about 3 minutes. Not that I'd want to but now I can't return the phone as you can only have 45 minutes of talk time on it or they won't accept it back.

    It's like buying a brand new car then having the dealership crank the odometer up to the mileage of your previous vehicle.

    if you were to restore it like a new phone it resets that counter. I had 13 hours on mine and jailbroke, than restored to remove the jail break and I now have 4 minutes of total usage.

    Basically, you restored your old phone's call time. Not a big deal.

    No its not the same. The mileage on the car is wear and tear. The milage on your phone is just BS mileage from a backup... let it go.
