It does show the call duration (last and total). Those timers cannot be trusted though to extrapolate any meaningful information about the handset's history since they can both be reset on the handset.
Going to Options -- Status and typing buyr
would bring up a hidden menu with total call and data use info, and that data survives even software wipes.
To the OP: If you bought the handset brand new and it arrived in a tampered box you should return it. It's not what you paid for, unless the item's description says otherwise and you missed some important smallprint.
