FAQs: Buying a Phone
What condition will my phone be in?
Our grading system defines the cosmetic appearance of the device and is as follows:
Brand New - The device has never been used before.
Grade A - The device is like new, meaning it is pre-owned but has been refurbished with new front and back panels so it is effectively like new.
Grade B - The device shows some minor signs of use. This may include some light scratches and scuffs on the screen and back as well as around the mid-frame.
Grade C - The device shows moderate to heavy signs of use. This may include scratches and scuffs on the screen and back as well as around the mid-frame; but no cracks or performance issues. More on Grading Here.
All of our used & refurbished iPhones, iPads & Devices are graded.
What does the phone come with?
The minimum you will receive is an accompanying USB cable, but you will be given the option to receive your phone with additional accessories. Alternatively you can purchase accompanying items in Accessories. New devices are factory sealed with their original accessories.
Is the phone tested?
Yes. Our 36 point test check list assures that our refurbished products are in perfect working order before they are sent out to you. It is then reset to factory settings.
Can I use my SIM card in one of your phones?
Of course. Unless otherwise specified, all of our devices are SIM-Free meaning you can insert your SIM and proceed to use your new device. Alternatively you can purchase a SIM card from us. See Accessories.
