    I got a new iphone 5S from the att store on Monday (8/4/14) - 3 days ago. I've made 26 calls. But my call time lifetime is 44 days, 22 hours! How is this possible? Did they sell me a refurbished iphone?

    Did you restore from a backup? Restoring from a backup will keep the previous call time and add to it as more calls are made.

    Well I'm not sure. I backed up my old iphone on the cloud. When I got the new iphone i logged into my icloud account and it put all my stuff onto this new iphone. Is that restoring from a backup? Sorry I'm not really good with the lingo!

    Did you restore from your iCloud backup? It sounds like you did. That's the only way that would make the call time already be that high.

    wow

    Do I feel stupid. I thought this had something to do with the NEW (not announced) Iphone.

    Okay dude -you have a new phone. It has not settled in yet. Give it a few days/weeks. And a reset.

    Then ask.

    "New" iphone talk time 44days???

    My call time is 22 hours. I've literally made one phone call on my iPhone. I have no idea what this is supposed to tell you since that once phone call I made was not 22 hours long.
    This little counter means nothing.
