Ever bought a phone and found yourself wondering if it was brand new or refurbished?

This is a major issue, especially for those looking to get devices from those “computer villages” or “Phone villages” as they are more popularly known.

The good news is, there’s a way to find out, and I’ll be sharing it with you in these 3 simple steps.

Note: If this code doesn’t work, try *#*#786#*#*instead. Stars and numbers must be entered in the correct order.
