Usually you can just tell by looking for marks on the fascia and small settings changes and new custom profiles. Also, look for any remaining files on the phone such as undeleted pictures or SMS text messages. Another thing to do is to check that all the default settings are present (these can be matched with another new phone), and that the default security codes are at default values. Granted, these can be changed, but it does not harm to check. Honestly in a professionally refurbished phone there is usually nothing wrong with it and it will be as NEW, but legally they cant label it as new.

You need to take the phone back to a T-Mobile store. They will be able to tell you how to get the buttons replaced. They will probably be able to replace your current phone with a refurbished phone of the same model.

When you buy a cell phone there is always a manual that comes with it read it and it will tell you everything you need to know about it.

Someone can learn how to use a cell phone by checking online sites that tell how to use the type of cell phone one has. Also, someone can go to a cell phone provider, such as a store, and ask someone for help using the phone.

The cell phone company can track your phone down. They do this to make sure that they route your call to the right towers. If you lose a cell phone track it down using this technology. Call the company and tell them what happened. They should be able to look for your phone. If someone else has used it, they can tell you where it is. This can help you to get it back.

You should be able to see that on the manual. Check the phone specifications.

If the phone is in your name and you pay the bill, your place of employment cannot tell you what you can and cannot do with your phone, with one exception: They can request that you not use your phone while on the job.

Call the company and tell them your phone is lost. Did you get insurance for your phone? That would help if you did.

If you have an Android phone you can simply go to their website and look on the market. You then tell them what kind of phone you have after finding an app you want. Hit send or go and the app will start downloading to your phone.
