    beware.. I just received a CPO phone (Droid HTC Incredible) through Verizon and after a failed attempt at activating my new phone and a call to customer support I was then transferred to their IT department. The end result happened to be that the CPO phone that was sent to me was never refurbished and in fact was still registered to the original number (previous owner) and while the phone was never activated by the original user the phone was still registered to their number. All in all Verizon owned up to their mistake and has sent me a new, unused Droid HTC Incredible at no additional cost.
