    I have searched the forum and i need some examples of light leaks and miss alignment.

    Also in the new phone a way to determined if its refurbished withoutturning on the phone, also if someone can redirect me to another topic explaining how to detect if refurbished in anyway.

    I went through 6 iPhones recently and 4 of them were refurbished. The dead giveaway is if it comes in a plain white box with no Apple markings on it. The second thing to look for is if the serial number starts with "5K".

    Also, politely ask the Mac Genius if you can test out the refurb before taking it home. The guy I had let me take it into the bathroom to check for light leaks... he was very nice to me about it and he agreed that I shouldn't leave there until I was satisfied with an iPhone and sure enough, after a couple, I found the one I wanted.

    Here's my story if you are interested: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=582099
