    Refurbish bottom was replaces by erase baseband.

    They do the same thing, after you erase your baseband you need to restore with itunes.

    Actually not, When you see refurbished you understand that after that process the phone is ready "refurbished" but actually the only thing that process do is it erases the baseband so after that you need to do a restore on itunes to get you baseband back in your phone.

    So actually calling it just what it is it's better.

    Yes,

    Reflashing or erasing the baseband does not touches the main FW so all your information will be there after a baseband erase or a baseband reflash.

    However if after that you restored via itunes that's it all data is erased and your phone is just as out of the box.

    so you can send it now

    Then thats it, it's all wiped out.

    You cannot just activate, you need to jailbreak and activate in order to pass the slide for emergency screen.

    and to go back you will need to restore again.

    Dont worry dude if you RESTORED then it's clean just as out of the box
