Buying A Pre-Owned iPhone

Andrea in Atlanta, Georgia listens on AM920 - “The Answer” asked us about buying a used iPhone 6


​*Audio archived for 6 months

Andrea asked: “I need to buy a pre-owned iPhone 6 and would like to know the best model and the latest newest model. The best place to buy, either a big box store or gazelle or whatever. Preferably with a warranty.”


Andrea, you don’t have a lot of variety when it comes to the iPhone 6, you can buy the Plus if you want a larger screen, other than that it’s all about colors and storage capacity.

As for latest, the iPhone 6 was just the iPhone 6, there weren’t newer models, the 6S came after it, but it was a new model.

If you’re willing to stretch and go for a 6S, you can buy that one straight from Apple, either a new phone or as a refurbished phone. That’s important because you mentioned a warranty, and that’s a hard thing to get with a used phone. If you buy a refurbished phone from Apple, you get the same 1-year warranty that a new one would have.

BestBuy will probably be the most expensive option

If you’re sticking to the 6 like you mentioned, BestBuy and Gazelle have them, there are also other online stores like JamJam and eBay that have them listed.

BestBuy will probably be the most expensive option, followed by the certified or fully refurbished ones from other retailers.

You will usually have options as to the shape the phone is in, so keep in mind that when you see “from $140” that probably means that the $140 one will be in pretty bad shape.
