Does your phone work better than the one you traded in? If so why does this even matter? Christ..

Wow! That's a mouthful OP! It's a new phone but it's stock reserved for replacements.

As long as the iP4 that you received as a replacement is working better than the one you exchanged it with, enjoy the phone mate, and don't worry about what kind of box it came out of. ;)

iOS 4.0.1 will typically display fewer service bars, but the actual signal strength is unchanged. It merely displays a more accurate count of bars.

refurbished phone is almost always as good as new one or if you're not feeling safe, take it to apple store for replacement

Strong run-on sentence. I'm actually not even sure what you're talking about.

Well with all the people swapping their iphones out for any and every reason, refurbs were bound to start popping up soon. Don't know why it matters tho.

i called apple store today and talked to them and asked them about my replacement iphone that the serial id start with 5k and i heard it means refurbished phone and she said no we have these unit in case we can not fix the phone we give them to customers and the reason it start with 5k is so they can distinguish the product between new one and replacement one
and even i asked them if they sell refurbished phones in store and she said no and they sell refurbished items online and they just have refurbished for ipod and macs

and i asked them about my old iphone which they put it back into to the black case that they used for replacement iphone and ask them whether they sell it again and she said no your old one will go back to the factory for recycling.
