Refurb costs

[ Edited ]

Have just been through the process of creating an order (which I have cancelled) for a refurb iPhone 6.  I cancelled it as it was MORE expensive to order a refurb than to order a new one through Apple.  Who in their right mind would pay more for a used phone than a new phone?

Some people would I expect. It's called not shopping around...Smiley Wink

Re: Refurb costs

I can't think of any reason other than to benefit from refresh?

Go for the best deal to suit your needs but make sure coverage is your primary concern.

To add to the above post.... I was looking for an iPhone 6 to buy for my son this Christmas. The price varied so much and not being used to iPhones I admit to asking advice from many people on here. I have ordered a brand new iPhone 6 which I am sure my son will be delighted with. (Difference in price range was up to £150)

Re: Refurb costs

It's based on whether people do research & have the means to actually afford & cover the costs

It's the same with all the Xperia refurbs in o2s store, they are more expensive than brand new units??
