    I'll never buy a open box again

    I was very excited to buy a unlocked iPhone 5S with a good price from Bestbuy. So I got the phone and turned it on, when I saw a large pink spot in the center of the screen. When in operation that could be seen only when exposed in the sun. I thought, OK is "open box". After I had some problems with the touch screen with unresponsiveness. At beginning it bothered a bit but began to increase. I went to the store and spoke to an attendant and who told me that was a software problem software. I ran all the suggested steps, but during that time I had to go back to my country. When I arrived in my country, I called Apple and was told that there was no guarantee and I would have to contact the store. As suggested and after a long time they returned my e-mail telling me that would have to call some department to try to solve my problem. I gave up and sent it for repair. To my surprise the touch screen was not original and was really in trouble. I spent around $100 to fix it. So far I have not received any return of Bestbuy. I do not advise buying equipment "open box" because it does not have the assurance that they will work and do not have the desired support.

    Bought it mainly for use with SIM cards from other countries while traveling. First had to set the phone up while in the US. I got some information from the BB chat that to set up the phone I would have to buy a SIM card but they all come with a pre paid plan. I figured this would work and I could use the phone in the US. When I went to the BB store the rep told me about the pre paid plan with SIM but that if I don't use it much the SIM and phone number will expire. He suggested I just take the SIM from my usual iPhone which is On ATT and put it in the new phone to set it up. It worked fine. He did say he thought that only works with ATT. When in Kenya I popped in a new SIM from safaricom and after adding credit it worked seamlessly with the phone and apps I added back in the US via wifi after initial set up. The charger that came with this certified refurbished phone is after market so as is usual iPhones sometimes don't recognize them. The phone was in perfect condition and I never would have known it was used. It came with a very good screen protector. Battery life is very good. I have no regrets and would buy it again.

    Iphone works well but took almost a month to receive. Since it was taking so much time I decided to return it since the new iphone 7 is coming out soon and there will be a bunch of 6's available. Tried to take back to best buy store and they would not take it back (even when it says so on receipt packed with phone). Additionally, manager at best buy at the Highlands store was surly when talking about it. Make sure it is what you want before you buy because my experience shows it can't be returned to the best buy stores. Good iphone but bad experience with Best Buy Management.

    Great replacement

    Got this as a replacement, great value. Certified used seems to be the way to go. I've had this phone a few months, and the apps and wifi work great. I'm even able to use it as a hot spot with Metro PCS. Most "Fully functional" or "refurbished" phones you buy on other auction sites, aren't. And they don't let you download music to the phone without that error message. Wish I would have bought from here first. Just a note: It seems like the phone runs hot more than my last phone did. I don't feel like I use it a lot, and i charge it like every day and a half.

    misrepresented the product

    first of all they didn't update the software before they sold it to me, which is bad because that means that they didn't actually know if the product was working properly as they claimed it would be. some phones glitch upon updating. secondly they sold me a product that must originate from a country where it is illegal to shut off the camera shutter sound, becuase mine won't shut off... so basically they didn't actually check this phone out before they sold it as they claimed they did. and they give you only 14 days to return it. probably hoping you won't figure this out until it's too late. Best Buy = bad buy :(

    Had an LG phone that died on trip. Best Buy Customer Service asked what I would prefer and told they had refurbished iPhone 5S. The phone shipped to my home and it didn't have a scratch on front or back - not even a smudge. Everything about the iPhone works so much better than previous phone - On switch on top, camera works by icon rather than volume control. Icon placement selection much better and really, it just works like most Apple products. Refurbished phone a great option when you don't want to spend $800 and the latest/greatest.

    Good price for used iPhone 5

    Purchased used iPhone 5 for my son. It was a good deal since it came with 1 yr warranty. The only downside is the camera shutter sound doesn't turned off even on silent mode. After searching online for answers, we found that the phone may have originated from Asia, and that the regulations for certain countries requires for camera shutter to be on constantly. If anyone has a solution to turning off the camera shutter, please comment on this review. Other than that my son is happy with the phone.
