A pre-owned phone is any used cell phone that has been traded in and then verified to ensure that it’s still in tip-top shape before making it available for purchase. When buying used cell phones, make sure you purchase from a reputable seller that has high standards for the old phones they accept and then approve for sale. With the help of our trade-in program, Best Buy sells used unlocked cell phones that have been wiped clean of data from the former owner, then tested and certified to be fully functional and in like-new condition. These verified phones often come with a limited warranty, which in the case of most certified pre-owned phones at Best Buy, is one year on parts and labor. When your older phone needs an upgrade to a phone with more memory, a better camera and more features than your budget might allow, consider a used iPhone or used Android phones from various makers to get the most bang for your buck. Most used phones for sale are unlocked and not tied to a specific carrier or contract, affording you the ability to choose a used cell phone with the data plan that’s best for you. However, if your preference is to find Boost mobile used phones or Sprint used phones, Best Buy has used cell phones for sale from each of these providers and more.
