What are refurbished mobile phones?

Does refurbished mean these phones were faulty?

Not necessarily. In many cases, a customer has changed their mind and returned the product without being used.

Some handsets are of course returned to us as faulty. Our dedicated boffins repair and test the devices and replace any serious damage to the handset. This means each reconditioned phone is as good as new.

Are refurb models still covered by warranty?

You will receive a 12 month retailer warranty with Carphone Warehouse on all refurbished products, so you can buy with confidence.

Will a refurbished phone come with all the usual packaging?

Your reconditioned device will not be factory sealed for obvious reasons. In many cases you also may receive your handset in a plain white factory box as opposed to the original branded packaging. But most of us just go straight for the tech and give the box to the cat to play with anyway.

Are accessories included with second hand phones?

For hygiene reasons, some accessories such as headphones and hands-free devices will not be included. Although most accessories cannot be guaranteed, you’ll always get a USB cable and wall adapter so that you can power up right away.
