Refurbished phones are becoming more and more popular and offer a great value way to buy the latest iPhone and other mobiles at discounted prices. Most of the UK phone networks now offer refurbished phones in the form of “EE Good As New”, “Three refurbished”, “Vodafone Nearly New” and “O2 Refurb”.
Unfortunately, finding insurance for your refurbished mobile phone can be difficult and you can sometimes have to pay a premium for it. Insurers often see them as high risk devices, because they can’t guarantee that the phone has been refurbished professionally to a high standard.
Just because a phone is refurbished doesn’t mean that it’s going to be cheap to repair or replace should the worst happen. A replacement refurbished iPhone could still cost you £600, and it’ll cost just as much to repair a cracked screen as it would do a new device. At tinhat we’ll cover your refurbished phone for:
