    I just took delivery of a new car with around 10 miles on it but there’s already a phone paired to Bluetooth. Tesla claims it’s not a demo or return so I’m just baffled why it was paired with a phone. April 2019 built with HW 3 (2019.7.105 firmware). Any plausible explanation? Home delivery person was using a different branded phone.

    With only 10 miles, I wouldn’t worry about it. But agree it seems strange.

    Quality check by delivery specialist?

    Someone put 10miles on it and was apparently responsibly hands free during that time.
    Probably a quality test drive or the like. Delete it and move on.

    Delivery just responded saying factory used a company phone for diagnoses before shipping.

    I bet they rolled the odometer back and that it actually has 50000 miles on it.

    Just delete it and go driving

    If you are on the forum, you’re wasting time not driving
