Refurbished phones - always great value.

All refurbished phones are in superb condition. These can be used phones that have been returned in near perfect condition or have gone through some level of refurbishment to improve their physical condition. There may be the odd mark or scratch but it will be barely noticeable. The phones have been checked and restored back to near their original state for re-sale.

Our refurbished phones are shipped in plain cardboard boxes and come with a USB data cable, for charging via PC or mains. Our refurbished phones are NOT supplied with a mains adaptor and are not supplied with additional software or a phone guide, (downloadable from manufacturers website). All refurbished phones come with a 12-month warranty.
