There comes a time when you want to buy yourself a phone but having the money for a new phone is not something that is entirely possible. In situations like that, buying a used phone is always a good idea, especially if you find a good deal on it. Thousands of used phones are bought and sold these days, this only provides the fact that it is definitely a profitable thing to do.
Whether you are buying an iPhone 6 Plus, or something old, the options are going to be there. There arejust some questions that you must ask at the time you’re exploring the market for an old phone. These questions will help you in navigating the market in a proper fashion. Let’s go ahead and have a look, shall we?
Is it Repaired or Refurbished?
In my opinion, this is perhaps the most important question you can ask when you’re looking for a phone. It is important to ask whether the phone is refurbished or repaired; most big companies like Apple or Samsung generally add a disclaimer on the device explaining how it is a refurbished phone. Still, it is better to ask whenever you are buying a secondhand phone.
Do I Get an Original Receipt?
I always ask for the original receipt whenever I am buying something used. It’s just a better practice because that way, I am aware of when the phone was purchased by the shopkeepers. Even if the seller didn’t provide the original receipt, the shopkeepers write down the date of the purchase from the seller. So even if they don’t have the receipt at hand, you can always ask about when they bought the phone. That way you will know it’s not that old.
