    they don't say it is a refurbished one.
    They don't simply grab a box from the shelf which wouldn't make any sense to waste packaging and so forth. THey bring regular boxes without saying it is a refurbished phone or a new one.
    To me anyway, refurbished are as good as brand new ones.

    Well it turns out they are giving ReFurb Replacements. The Apple Genius Rep. told me they don't know if they are Refurbs come on man just tell me the truth they are well I was a sucker for one and I ended up having to go back again because the replacement they gave me was defective with a weird ripple affect when you toched the bottom right of the screen like when you would press on an lcd screen. So before I left a second time I checked everything with this third phone and so far it looks to be ok except I noticed another dust speck when I got home but it's not nearly as bad as my first phone but I guess I'm just going to have to deal with it they are all going to do this I assume. If you look at the headphone jack port you can see light shining through small openings in the casing I am sure that's where all the dust particles are getting in. Oh well guess the iPhone II will fix all the complaints from iPhone I. anyways so yes you will be getting a ReFurbished iPhone if you go to exchange this at an Apple store unfortunately.

    How can you say a Refurbished phone is just as good as new my screen was defective on the second phone I got and there is still a dust spec in the 3rd phone I got? I mean most of these Refurb phones if not all of them had a problem with them which would be the reason they have the name "Refurbished". I just don't think it's right that we shouldn't get a brand new phone I had no problem bringing back mine with the box and all the accessories that the phone came with. I mean again we did pay $600 for the phone if you were an early adopter which I was.
