There are four main sources for getting a refurbished iPhone, we’ll go through each on in turn and highlight the pros and cons of each type of supplier.
You can frequently go to the apple online store and check the special deals section of the website, this is the most official place to buy a refurbished iPhone and other apple products. The down side to buying from the apple store is that the special offers usually aren’t that special, this is because they still want to make a high profit on the sale and you still get the manufacturer’s warrantee with your iPhone. Different deals suit different people so again weigh up your usage and budget and choose to buy your iPhone from the best source.
Visit a local authorized apple dealer, this is the second most expensive option but again an authorized dealer will provide you with some sort of warranty or guarantee to fall back on should your product not meet 100% apple standard. Authorized retailers usually get the refurbished iPhones before normal retailers so if your in a rush we recommend going to one of these.

The last and most risky place the get a refurbished iPhone is online auction sites and individual sales. You will find plenty of refurbished iPhone on ebay and there is a vast selection to choose from, you will make the most saving but be very very careful! These come with no warranty, you don’t get to see the iPhone and you don’t know what other faults there may be with the phone.
