New phone shows 4 days usage?

I just got an iPhone 4S and I watched them take it out of a sealed box. While playing around I went into usage and under call time it shows "4 days 17 hours"!

Anyone have any idea what's up with that? Did I get an used phone?

Might have been factory testing.

I got it at Wal Mart.

4 days factory testing?!?

I chatted with Apple. They said it was from restoring from the backup of my old iPhone. Apple showed the phone as first being activated today.

I ended up restoring the phone and setting it up as a new phone and it then showed 0 hours of usage so restoring from a backup was definitely the issue.
