Refurbished phones market is expanding pretty fast and no wonder – such devices are often in perfect condition, so you can’t even tell that they were once used, yet they are way cheaper than brand new models. Moreover, such practice is great for the environment. You can buy reconditioned phones from every major retailer such as eBay or Amazon and a number of manufacturers, for instance Apple, have their own refurbished devices programs. Some carriers are also offering reconditioned smartphones. If, however, you are in the market for a cheap phone tied with free service, then FreedomPop is the place to go to, as the MVNO went green and now offers refurbished phones.
You can now get cheaper phones at FreedomPop. There’s something you have to know about the devices, though.
Up until now, FreedomPop’s main line of business was free service but it’s changing today. The company opened a new FreedomShop online store which sells a number of refurbished smartphones. In fact, at the moment the offer includes over 100 models of smartphones from such popular manufacturers as Apple, Samsung, LG and Motorola, as well as some less known brands, for instance Sharp.
FreedomPop is offering the phones up to 80% cheaper than brand new models. For example, the iPhone 5S can be had for just $169.99, while the Motorola Moto E (2nd generation) is priced at only $39.99. The MVNO also has newer models if you want to enjoy more up-to-date hardware. For instance, the company sells this year’s Samsung Galaxy S7 which will set you back just $449.99.
Even though the phones are very inexpensive, there’s no need to worry – FreedomPop assures that each device has been thoroughly tested by a “team of skilled technicians” and is in great condition, hence should work as new. All phones come with a 30-day money back guarantee and a 90-day warranty, just in case something goes wrong. Of course, free mobile phone and internet service is available with each device and includes 500 texts, 200 minutes, and 500MB data each month.
Another great news is that the US-based company will offer its refurbished phones also abroad. At the moment, in addition to the US, the MVNO will ship the devices also to the UK, Mexico and Spain.
