    Quick question: when i took my 'brand new' iphone out of the box, i noticed that the lifetime usage stated 2 days, 11 hours.

    does this mean that the phone was previously owned?

    Previously owned by who, Steve Jobs?

    You restored the new phone with the original iphone backup file, correct?

    The lifetime comes from the backup file, or the life of the SIM.

    Actually, I was looking at the screen, and that is talk time since the last reset. Whereas Usage is time on since last full charge.

    The screen tells you when your last reset and full charge occurred.

    It came from the backup file. The Lifetime field is total number of minutes used of voice time since the last reset (which is listed at the bottom of the screen).
