Default Bold Usage...Help!

Please Login to Remove!

Hi guys

I recently got a 'so called' brand new upgrade from my network (vodafone UK). However, I get the feeling the phone has been used before due to the following factors;

1) There was no seal on the box
2) The screen protector has got loads of bubbles with dust underneath
3) The head phones look used

I just wanted to know if there is a way to check call usage etc by entering any codes etc (Nokias usually have this option). I want to know for sure before sending the phone back since its a huge hassle.

Cheers!

Wirelessly posted (8300)

Go into phone and use the menu button -> status. This can be cleared however

I do not beleive that the BUYR information can be changed unless you wipe the device and reload the OS. It will changed to Exceeded 250k and Exceeded 60 minutes and will stay that way after use.
