    I picked up my iPhone 5 today brand new sealed in the box noticed today that the lifetime timer says 4 days how is this possible. I restored from a iTunes backup could this have anything to do with it

    I'm sure the back up does carry over the timer from the previous phone, seen it reported as such before.

    Same happened to me. 20 days of lifetime usage on my new i5 after I did a restore from iCloud. :/

    Mine had 2 days usage when I bought it, but the odd thing is, it also had 30MB of tethered data...and I've never used personal hotspot.

    Sounds like Apple is already recycling those returned phones! :p
