Refurbished and UK-used Blackberry: How can a buyer spot the differences between the two?

Many have been a victim of refurbish phone, which only operate well for a shot time before developing a huge problem. Although not all UK-used phones are perfect as well but since the cost of new phones force many people to buy UK-used phone, then I guess we all should try and know the differences between the two. Anybody with a good idea?

If you notice that the phone you are buying at 'show case' is very new, then is refurbished not new one. Refurbished phones are most times a waste of money

Refurbished phones always carry 2-3 stickers that are either yellow or pink in colour showing details about a manufacturer or number..This is visible only when you remove the battery...Its not that UK used phones don't carry theirs,but its usually white showing little details about the phone.The reason for the presence of such stickers on refurbished phones is because whenever spoilt phones are repaired,the repairer would want credit for his work thereby placing the company sticker.In the case of multiple stickers,some phones may not be repaired by one repairer.They may be about 1 or 2 and each would want to be given credit,hence the multiple stickers.But not all refurbished phones are bad,if you are lucky you might get the good one.
