    Did you set up as a new phone or as your old phone?

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    This is your usage from the previous phone.

    why would the lifetime number only be 3 days if i've had the previous phone for a year?

    Backup from your old iPhone; just reset and you'll get the more accurate numbers....

    Because it is call time only. You spent 3 days and 2 hours talking on your phone this past year.

    Isn't that actually the time since the last charge?

    I don't think so. If you look under usage you'll see "Lifetime" under the Call Time heading.

    That's a different statistic, displayed higher on the same screen.

    From what I understand that's the amount of time you have been talking since your last bill cycle. Then again one would think lifetime would include. Your entire talking time since your very first call

    this is pretty funny -- no one seems to know what it means.

    It's hilarious.

    One of those nice chinese men that made your phone probably took it for a test spin before boxing it back up. Good thing there's that oleophobic coating - made it much easier to wipe clean LOL

    That's your call time...it's from you backing up...just reset and you will be fine....it will start new again....

    Your call time is store on the backup file so you know....for me I'm new to ATT so mine is 7 hrs....57 mins....thats how much time I've use on the phone to talk....
