Frequently asked questions

What are refurbished phones?

​​A refurbished phone is a phone that was traded in by someone else, reconditioned and sold on to someone new. When the phone is traded in, it’s often in a good state, but was sold to us to get cash towards an upgrade. Occasionally, we have the odd broken phone, which you can still get cash for!

Before selling a refurbished phone on the musicMagpie Store, they have to go under strict testing to ensure they work just as a brand new phone would. Refurbished phones must be in full working order before they’re sold on too. You may come across very minor cosmetic wear with a refurbished phone, but these can be covered with a phone case (which we recommend anyway to protect your phone!).

There’s a misconception that refurbished phones were once broken or faulty phones. This isn’t always the case. Plus, we have three grading systems to suit various budgets and requirements when shopping for a refurbished phone.

What is the difference between original and refurbished phones?

The biggest difference between refurbished phones and original new phones is the price! When you buy a refurbished phone, you get the same great device but for the fraction of the cost of buying new.

We make sure all of our refurbished phones have been extensively tested and repaired if needed, so that each device we sell is in perfect working condition. Since we have three different conditions to choose from, the cosmetic condition of your device could look slightly different than new.

Our Pristine devices are in excellent physical condition and look just like new. Our Very Good condition will show slight signs of wear but should still be in really good cosmetic condition. Our Good condition will have moderate signs of wear - there may be a scratch or two on the casing that would show it's a refurbished device, but this is usually something that can be hidden by a phone cover!

Where do refurbished phones come from?

Refurbished phones come directly from our customers (and sometimes businesses too!).

Refurbished phones, as we mentioned, are phones that people have traded in for cash. More often than not, these phones are in fully working condition, but people may just want cash for an upgrade or they’re having a bit of a clear out!

Other times, some customers may trade in a broken phone - perhaps the screen was smashed, it’s slowing down or the battery isn’t performing as well as it once did.

As the UK’s No.1 Mobile Phone Recycler, we take great pride in our refurbishment process and ensure all of our refurbished phones fully function as a new one would.

How good are refurbished phones?

Refurbished phones are a great option if you’re looking to get the same phone for less, or live a more sustainable lifestyle.

Our refurbished phones are reconditioned to a standard that makes our phones work just like a brand new one would. Plus, we offer a FREE 12 month warranty that covers technical defects caused by improper workmanship and a 14-day money back guarantee if you change your mind!

Why buy refurbished phones?

Refurbished phones are a better investment for both yourself and the planet. They’re reconditioned using precious resources and materials extracted from devices that no longer work. This actively promotes a circular economy and helps reduce the demand for ores that are harnessed from the ground. These ores are in limited supply, not to mention the process is highly damaging to the environment.

Our method cuts out tons of emissions and ensures the prevention of E-waste - a growing waste stream that is deeply affecting the planet and the atmosphere. So beyond getting a phone for less, which we obviously see as a plus, we place our passion for sustainability and the forefront of everything we do - not just refurbished phones.

Of course - they’re also cheaper than buying a brand new phone. Why get a new one when you can get the same second hand, but refurbished to the same working order, for less? It’s smart for you… smart for the planet!
