iPhone FAQs What does refurbished mean?

Usually it means a handset which has been returned because of a fault, or because the original buyer changed their mind about it. Then it's been repaired if there was anything wrong and tested, ensuring the battery charges and buttons and cameras and so on work. It will have been wiped of data so it's as fresh as new.

Most refurbished model deals also come with full warranty for extra peace of mind.

How can I sell my old iPhone?

You can get rid of your old phone through a number of recycling websites that will offer you cash in return instantly once your old handset has been received.

Most sites will accept phones regardless of condition, however sending off worn or even slightly damaged phones will reduce the price you'll get for it.

Experts at Sell My Mobile advise to sell early for the best possible price, claiming: “Whenever a new iPhone is announced, the resale value of older models starts to drop fairly rapidly."

There are a number of sites to choose from including Music Magpie, Mazuma Mobile, Oxfam, Sell My Mobile and of course eBay.
