    No real way to tell if it's new or not. Just buy looks you should be able to tell.

    There is a way to totally wipe the OS off the phone so they could just do that and you would never know.

    Where is this curve? Can you actually see it in person? Why would it really matter if it was used?

    i dont think youll have any luck with that unless they dont un-install the OS and then obviously its been used.. or pre-programmed.

    You can just go to

    CALL LOG>MENU>STATUS

    but they can just clear it. So it doesn't matter.

    Why does it matter if it's used??????????????????????

    Yeah.. as long as its in good exterior shape and is functional. Its all good.. You can then just wipe it clean and reload everything fresh.

    is your concern more so with paying a certain price for the new and a different one for the used?? this is not like bying a car that you want one with 3000mi and not the one with 300,000mi....lol as stated above if the curve is well taken cared of and functional, you shouldn't have any problems.

    See if the seller will give you the IMEI and PIN. If so, call the carrier for that device and tell them you are looking to buy it and see what they can tell you.

    It is always good to check because if the device was reported as lost or stolen or the account isn't up to date, all you have is a paperweight.

    just follow the golden rule, you get what you pay for. I for one would like peace of mind. I would check that phone to see if it works properly. What if the speaker is messed, or some weird sound when your calling someone, you never know. Just make sure you check it.
