    Hi

    Anyone know if the week number embedded in the serial of a refurb device represents the week the device was originally built, or when it was refurbished/assigned a new serial?

    Thanks

    To my knowledge, the serial stays the same, but the model number changes after being refurbished. I could be wrong though.

    Its build day, I don't think they track any sort of details on refurbished dates - at least not encoded in the serial number.
