Video: St. Louis Cell Phone Repair: Buy a Refurbished Cell Phone
Hi I’m Chris Phillips with CPR Cell Phone Repair in St. Louis Missouri. I frequently hear customers stories about their broken cell phone or iPhone and their other mobile devices like tablets or iPads. One customer left his cellphone on the roof of his wife’s car and it got smashed after if flew off the roof onto the highway and run over by another car. We’ve had clients whose mobile phones got water damaged from being dropped in bath tubs, and of course we’ve all probably heard stories about a cell phone or iPhone being thrown into a pool at a weekend party. Usually our clients prefer to repair their mobile phones but what if it is broken or damaged so badly that it is beyond repair? Most people will go back to the store where they originally purchased their cell phone and find sticker shock when they are confronted with paying the full retail price.
It can be as much as $700 or $ 800 to replace their used mobile phone. Well, I have good news, you do have other options that many people don’t even know about. Consumers can buy refurbished cell phones at prices way below the cost of a new one. Before you purchase a refurbished mobile phone or iPhone, here is some advice. First, does the mobile or cell phone work with your carrier? Mobile phones are not the same even though they may look like it. Cell phones are designed differently depending on the network your carrier uses. For example, if your carrier is ATT or TMobile, you’re on a GSM network. If you buy a phone designed for Sprint or Verizon, they are on a CDMA network. The refurbished cell phone you buy may not be the right one for your carrier and it is important to double check before you buy. Second, make sure your refurbished cell phone not been reported as lost or stolen. Buy from a reputable source. Theft of mobile phones is becoming a huge problem.
Don’t help the thieves and only buy from legitimate sources that do not sell stolen phones. Third, make sure that you get a warranty or extended service contract with the device. You are buying a used or refurbished mobile phone. The device could have been in perfect condition and simply traded in for an upgrade. Or, it could be a phone that was damaged and repaired for resale. Both can be great phones, if you just make sure the source you are buying the cell phone from will stand behind the device. I hope these tips have helped you.
