    The seller should, in an ideal world, so state. One clue would be the warranty. Ninety days or one year? Go to Cell Phones and Smartphones - Nokia - USA and under the warranty claim pages, you can enter your EMEI and they will tell you if it's covered. Unfortunately, they don't say until when.

    There is also a huge "back channel" of cell phones that may be refurbs, or may be NIB but for whatever reason the seller can't or won't say so. I bought an 810 a year ago that I presume was the former, and a 925 recently that was obviously the latter. These sellers had dozens to hundreds available.

    BTW, refurbs in any product, not just phones, can include defectives that were repaired, or returned items w/o all accessories. Other than warranty differences, I'm always good with refurbs.

    Good point. I've often seen things like this as "Seller refurbished." Which could mean as little as I made the screen nice and shiny with a microfiber cloth and did a hard reset.
