    Hi:

    I recently received a replacement Treo 650 via Lockline. It lookks like new to me but how do I make sure that it is not a refurbished one ?

    Is there a way to differentiate new from refurbished ?

    How long (minutes /hours) before had it been used , is there a way to find that too ? Thanks
    Treo, I love you !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    If I remember, dialing #*786 will show you the lifetime useage that is not resetable.

    It's most likely refurbished.

    Did it come in The Original Treo 650 box???? Or did it just come with bubble wrap???

    a replacement will 99% of the time be refurbished...no worries tho, they usually are like new as you can see!

    There is a lifetime timer that you can check. My life timer has 14678 minutes on it. If a 'new' phone said that, I'd say it was a refurb.

    Refurbs usually carry the same warranty as a new one also! That's the good part!

    I bought mine "new" on ebay back in May 06 aqnd my lifetimer now says 2004 min, so I think mine was actually really new. I thought it might have been a refurb too, but mine did come in original packing and looked new from the start, but I am always a bit suspicious ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS.

    Yeah, yeah Whenever I need to call someone, it's usually a quick one or two minute call. I do a lot of server management from my phone so I'm almost always using data. If I got switched to a pay per use plan I'd have to sell my house, car, and a leg or two...

    I use my data too but if I had the 700 I think I would be streaming 24x7

    Interestingly upstream EvDO speeds are (capped?) 75-100kbps... hardly enough for video conferencing... Thinking about it now, the only thing EvDO is good for that EDGE isn't is streaming...
