What’s the main benefit of buying a refurbished phone?
The big advantage of buying a refurbished smartphone is to save money! You can expect to pay a lot less upfront for a refurbished phone compared to a new one, and perhaps also pay cheaper monthly line rental.
If you want to have the latest mobile tech in your pocket without paying the full price, a refurbished phone is a great choice. And don’t forget, they come with a 12-month warranty.
Got your eye on a smartphone but can’t afford the retail price? A refurbished phone from us is the answer. Every refurbished phone in our range has been returned by a customer simply because they changed their mind shortly after purchase. So, other than the fact the box has been opened, it’s in near mint condition. Once we receive the phone, we just return it to its factory settings and lower the price, win-win for you.
All of our refurbished phones come with a 12-month warranty. That’s the same amount you’d get with a brand new phone, so you can relax knowing that if there are any bumps in the road, you’re covered. Don’t worry though, every phone in our range is fully inspected by a qualified engineer, and has passed a rigorous quality control test before it’s sold to you.
Your refurbished phone will come in a plain white unbranded box. Inside, you’ll find the phone itself, along with a charger and charging cable for it. Unfortunately, we’re not able to include headphones for hygiene reasons – but even if you purchase a new pair from us, you’ll still save a packet overall.
All of our refurbished phones are Grade A, which is the highest grade you can get. Grade A phones are in near mint condition and have little or no scruffs and minor marks. Each Grade A device is also tested to be in perfect working condition before sold.
A refurbished smartphone is one that’s been returned to us when a customer has had a change of heart shortly after the original purchase. Because the phone has already been taken out of its original packaging, we won’t sell it as brand new.
The term ‘refurbished’ doesn’t necessarily mean the phone has a fault, or has been for a repair. It just means that it’s been returned to its factory settings.
All our refurbished phones are unlocked, meaning you can use any SIM Only contract. And if you already have a SIM card, you just need to pop it in and you’re ready to go.
Yes, all of our refurbished iPhones come with the same 12-month Apple warranty you would get with a brand new handset. And if you find a fault you want us to take a look at, just head into your local store and speak to one of our colleagues.
