How to Replace A Lost Or Broken Cell Phone Cheaply

Check with your wireless carrier to see if they carry any refurbished cell phones. Refurbished phones are nothing more than cell phones that people either returned, or were broken during shipment and sent out for repair. Purchasing a refurbished cell phone saves you money because cell phone companies are looking to get rid of the phones and will sell them for incredibly cheap prices. Refurbished cell phones are also great because they've been tested for quality to be sure they work well. A cell phone company cannot sell a refurbished cell phone without having it fully tested. You can even request to see the invoice in which the phone was fixed and checked for problems.

Some people even offer a 'Buy It Now' price in which you can get the cell phone right away without having to wait and bid on the item. The only thing to be careful of is that the listing for the phone states that it is an 'unlocked' cell phone. Unlocked means that there is no code set by a cell phone carrier that will keep the phone from being used by anyone else. Cell phone companies do this as a way to protect their phones if their ever stolen and to discourage people from swapping cell phones.
