What exactly are old or refurbished cell phones? These are the cell phones that are similar to used cell phones but the difference lies in the quality of the hand sets. When you buy an old cell phone, you tend to get a lower quality phone at a lower price whereas a refurbished cell phone could be even better than a new one because often original factory settings are installed apart from up to date software.

Differences: An old cell phone is one that was used by somebody by all means and the condition of the phone may be good but you have to understand that despite the look, it is highly unreliable and may not last long. A refurbished cell phone is often one that was returned to the shop within 30 days from the date of purchase for some reason and so it would not have lost much of its sheen and other software. It may not even be possible to find the difference between the new cell phone and a refurbished one.

Tips for buying: When you have decided on buying a refurbished cell phone, look for the following:

 You should get the list of such refurbished phones from the website. You will be able to find many such refurbished phones with the latest features and software. You can choose the one that suits your purse.

 Check for information on the warranty of the phones as sometimes there may not be a sufficient warranty period.

 Find out if the refurbished cell phone caters to your basic requirement of communication even if the advanced features do not function.

 Frequencies and transmission band are to be checked as you may need them when you go to different places. Good coverage of signals available on the phone will enable you to contact others.

 Check if the call timer is reset which can be done only by the manufacturer. This will help you to find out if the phone is a genuinely refurbished one or a stolen one. You can also verify the same by calling the manufacturer with the electronic serial number which is unique for each phone.

 Buy the refurbished phone only when all the accessories are given according to the list provided. Battery and charger are very important and these need to be checked properly. Get the details of warranty period, credit period and other limitations in written form as it would be difficult to prove the same at a later point in case of any problem.


The main advantage of a refurbished cell phone is that it reduces the electronic waste which is causing grave concern all over the world. The risk of toxicity of elements such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and arsenic is reduced to a great extent. Apart from this, you will be able to get a cell phone that has not been used for a reduced price.
