Default How ll I know if my sm-p601 is refurbished?

I found the tablet came with a bubble filled transparent screen guard. . And there is an 'r' in the registration number. . Does that mean it's refurbished?

Sure it is, your new Note should not at the first place come with a screen guard, that`s an accessory you could get it later on.

So yes yours is a refurbished unit.

There is no sarcasm in my reply to your post, just clearly stating that normally NEW units doesn`t come with a screen guard or a screen protector, so if yours came with one of these , then for sure it is a USED or REFURBISHED one.

How can I prove it's refurbished?? Cause I took off that shabby screen guard and put a new one immediately. So lost that claim right away

Seems that you purchased this online, if so re-check with them if they clearly mentioned on site being used or refurbished.
Don`t know about the returning policy.
