    refurbished is not remanufactured.
    however, it's not supposed to have any customized information on it.
    apple's cheating. shame on steve jobs.

    Refurbs are phones that have been returned to apple for some reason. Either because someone decided they did not want it (within 14 days) or when someones phone is screwed up and they exchange it under warranty. Apple will make sure nothing is wrong fix anything that is and repackage it for shipping. the refurbs I have seen are already "activated" so if you they give you one at the genius bar theycan just pop in the sim and you don't have to be without a phone ubtil you get home.
