Buying second hand phones

If you are in the market for a new mobile [hone, you may be shocked at how much some of the newer, popular models are. Many people don’t want to have a phone on contract, or already have a contract for their usage, so therefore they will have to purchase the handset themselves.

Buying a second hand phone can save you a lot of money and if you don’t mind having the slightly older model, you can often half the original purchase price.

There is always a risk involved when buying second hand, and ideally you want to try and buy from somewhere that will give you a warranty or accept faulty returns. If buying from an individual you may not get any sort of guarantee and even if you are shown it working, it may be that it has an intermittent fault or a fault that takes a little while to take effect.
