    Refurbished phones 10th May 18 at 10:04 AM
    Hi! First post so bear with me!

    I have been looking to get a new phone and am getting emails for refurbished iPhones at a pretty good price. Has anyone bought one before? Not sure if they will be reliable and don't want to waste money on something that will break within a few weeks. Any help is appreciated!

    O2 refurbished phones are often almost brand new , they are returns etc which are reset , cleaned and reboxed if need be

    Same for the other networks

    We bought a refurb iPhone from 'hot bargain phones' a few years back.

    Apart from the fact that it was an iPhone we couldn't really fault it!

    The iPhone can be a bit dividing, i'm used to it now though! Been looking at the Google pixel 2 but I know no one who has one
