Refurbished Cellular Phones

By: John F. Baker

Let's be honest, buying refurbished cellular phones isn't exactly the most sexy notion in the world. But it might be the most sensible. In this short article, I'll be going over a few of the main reasons why you might want to consider buying a refurbished cell phone over a new one.

The biggest (and most obvious) reason for purchasing a refurbished mobile phone is to save money. Many factory reconditioned or "refurbished" cell phones carry the complete manufacturers warranty but come at a deeply discounted price. Basically, you'll be buying a phone that has been purchased, gently used, and sent back to the manufacturer due to a defect. The phone maker repairs the phone, fixes the problem, and then offers it as a refurbished item to another buyer at a discount.

While buying a "factory reconditioned" mobile phone may sound scary to some, it really shouldn't be something that you're afraid of. In most cases, if you didn't know that the phone was reconditioned before buying it, you would never know the difference. Many people have the impression that a refurbished phone will show signs of use, but nothing could be further from the truth. Overall, I think that buying a refurbished, factory reconditioned cell phone is a great way to save some money on the hottest new mobile phones being made today.

Hopefully this short article has given you some helpful ideas on why it may be worthwhile to consider purchasing a refurbished cellular phone. With refurbished phones, you'll be able to buy the latest handsets at a nice discount off the manufacturers suggested retail price, and they usually carry the original warranty. Last but not least, your jealous friends will never know that the phone you bought was factory reconditioned! Highly recommended!
