Guide to Buying Refurbished Phones


4 Mins

At Used Mobiles 4 U, we understand that buying a new mobile phone can be a costly investment. That’s why we offer a wide range of used and refurbished mobile phones at affordable prices. In this guide, we will walk you through the factors to consider when buying a refurbished phone and highlight the advantages of choosing a refurbished device.

Factors to Consider

  1. Condition: When buying a refurbished phone, it’s essential to check its condition. At Used Mobiles 4 U, we thoroughly inspect and refurbish all our devices to ensure they are in excellent working condition. However, it’s always a good idea to ask about the condition of the phone and if it comes with any warranty. All refurbished phones will be graded by letter based on the overall condition. You can check out our guide to refurbished phone grades here.
  2. Price: One of the main advantages of buying a refurbished phone is the cost savings. Refurbished devices are significantly cheaper than brand new phones, allowing you to get a high-quality device at a fraction of the price. Compare prices from different sellers to ensure you’re getting the best deal.
  3. Warranty: Look for refurbished phones that come with a warranty. At Used Mobiles 4 U, we offer a warranty on all our refurbished phones, giving you peace of mind knowing that you’re protected against any potential issues.
  4. Seller Reputation: It’s crucial to buy from a reputable seller when purchasing a refurbished phone. Look for reviews and ratings of the seller to ensure they have a good track record of providing quality products and excellent customer service.

Benefits of Buying a Refurbished Phone

  1. Cost Savings: As mentioned earlier, one of the biggest advantages of buying a refurbished phone is the significant cost savings. By opting for a refurbished device, you can get a high-quality phone at a fraction of the price of a new one.

Very pleased with my purchase

Purchased a phone from these guys a few years ago and was completely satisfied then so when it came to my latest requirement I thought I would return. The phone I wanted was out of stock for a few months but I was in no rush so I waited until one became available. I received it a few days ago and am completely happy with it. The condition is exactly as described, in fact it’s better than that in my opinion. Well done chaps, keep up the good work, I will certainly recommend you if someone should ask.

Decent price delivered on time BUT when the iphone microphone was erratic I contacted Used Mobiles 4 U to arrange a replacement or refund. This is when they showed their excellence. Arranged return for MY convenience and sent through a postage QR for my ease. A real pleasure doing business with them – and I’m likely to again. Oh, and by the way, the new (used) phone works great…
