    I'm about to return my phone because of LED backlight issues. Is there anyway to check the phone to see if it was a refurb? I know for windows phones, i'm able to check within the system binaries to see if it's a refurbish unit. I was wondering if there's any secret menu or location to check this information. Thanks

    ##786# scroll to see Refurbishment status and date. A new handset will say "unavailable" in both places.
