‘Where should I buy a second-hand iPhone?’ is one of the most common questions we get asked at Lovefone. People are rightly worried about getting a decent working phone at a fair price – which can seem like a pretty tall order in a very confusing and intimidating market.

A while ago, we published a blog post called 'Things to check when buying a second hand iPhone'. This short article became very popular, so we decided to develop it into a more detailed guide.

We’ve been busy for a few weeks to produce an elaborate guide which answers all the questions you might have when buying a second-hand iPhone.

The material will guide you step-by-step in the process so that you have all of the necessary information and resources at hand to make a purchase that you’ll be happy with.

The key questions that we cover:

  • When is a good time to buy a second-hand iPhone?
  • Where should I shop for a second-hand iPhone?
  • What should I consider before making the purchase?
  • What should I test on the phone when I receive it?

You can download the guide as a PDF from Please feel free to share this guide far and wide - we’d love it to help as many people as possible!

Good luck with finding the best deal!
