Pre-Owned Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Pre-Owned phone?

Pre-owned mobile devices are phones or other devices that have been previously owned by someone else. They can be bought from retailers, online marketplaces, or private sellers.

Pre-owned phones can be an excellent option for people who want to save money on a premium device at a great price.

What are the benefits of buying a Pre-Owned phone?

There are many benefits to buying a pre-owned phone. Here are just a few of the most notable ones:
Money Savings

One of the biggest benefits of buying a pre-owned phone is the money savings. Pre-owned phones often cost less than the price of a new phone, and you can often find a wider selection of models and colours.

This means that you can save a lot of money by buying a pre-owned phone. For example, you could buy a pre-owned iPhone 7 for R4,199 from Cellucity, while a brand new iPhone 7 costs upwards of R7,000. That’s a saving of almost R3,000!

Wider Selection

Another benefit of buying a pre-owned phone is that you often have a wider selection to choose from. This is because people sell their old phones when they upgrade to a new model, which means that there are more used phones on the market.

So, if you’re looking for a specific model or colour of phone, you’re more likely to find it if you buy a pre-owned phone.

Environmentally Friendly

Another benefit of buying a pre-owned phone is that it’s more environmentally friendly than buying a brand-new phone. This is because pre-owned phones don’t require the same amount of resources to produce.

For example, when you buy a brand new phone, the company has to mine for the materials, manufacture the parts, and put it all together. This process uses a lot of energy and resources.

On the other hand, when you buy a pre-owned phone, none of this is necessary. The phone has already been produced, so there’s no need to use any additional resources.

What to look out for when buying Pre-Owned

Buying a 2nd-hand phone on one of the online classified websites has its challenges. This market is completely unregulated and there is a high risk of buying a stolen or damaged device. These phones can be blacklisted and bricked months after buying them without any recourse, they carry no, or limited warranties and there is no way to authenticate if there are any latent faults, defects or damage.
Here are our top tips

Try to buy the best quality for your budget – A-Grade or CPO device.
Always look for the ICASA sticker on the box, this guarantees it is compatible with our networks and not an illegal import.
Attempt to buy the bigger memory devices, on 2nd hand iPhones the price difference is minor.
Buy from reputable websites or retailers, these devices will come with a warranty of 6 to 12 months.
Try to buy a device with at least 80% of its battery capacity or you are going to need to spend on replacing the battery from the get-go.
If you are getting a 2nd hand iPhone as an insurance replacement insist on a grade A device only.
Look for suppliers carrying a quality certified mark. Companies like “PhoneCheck” offer comprehensive assessments to ensure all hardware is fully functional, phones are not linked to any iCloud accounts and they have not been listed on international blacklisting databases.
