I got my refurbished treo (through advance exchange because my old treo developed an yellow spot) today and I was surprised it arrived so quickly (it has only been 2-3 days). I want to know if tihs Treo is really a refurbished one or a new one. It came in a cheap carboard carton like everyone else but the serial number did not have any R at the end and the life timer (is it minutes or hours??) is 4. I am supposed to have an unlocked cingular... how can I tell if the phone is new or refurbished ?.

The screen is considerably lighter in brightness , the camera seems to have more blue spots, it has palmone branding. anyone else receive something similar?
