    Walmart Nokia E71 Phones Reconditioned ?

    While trying to set up my voice mail for the very first time on my purchase of a Nokia E71 from Wal-Mart it gave me a message asking me if I wanted to use voice mailbox # +131593***** from SIM card. My area code is 518 and I have no idea who's number this is. It was already programmed into the SIM card on my supposedly brand new Nokia E71. Are the Nokia E71's for sale at walmart for 199.00 reconditioned phones ?

    That is probably the # your phone will dial to access your voicemail. You can also set the # to your own cell# to access voicemail.
    As for the E71 being reconditioned, It should say on the packaging somewhere in very small letters.

    Thats correct. At&t voicemail is set up that way. I live in the 606 area code but people with At&t in Kentucky will get a 502 area code for voice mail. That area code for your voicemail number I bet is another area code in your state. 502 for example is another Kentucky area code.

    I just looked it up. 518 and 315 are both area codes in New York.

    Well ok, that makes sense. ST finally got back to me after being a little confused about this but called the actual voice mail number a code that's pre-programmed into the phone.

    Look inside the battery compartment at the S/N. All reconditioned phones have a colored hi-lighting over the S/N.

    I would say refurbished, but recon- I don't think so... If its is, its a shame to the phone manufacturer and store

    Yep it's reconditioned/refurbished! My LG300g had a green highlight mark on top portion of the label under the battery.
    Sorry you got one of those, it's a roll of the dice with reconditioned phones. Sometimes you roll snake eyes.
