Idle curiosity. Would you buy a pre-owned iPhone from Best Buy?

There's some really good prices, but something makes me wonder if it would be a good idea.

Only if I could see it and test it.

Used, not pre-owned.

Every iPhone I've bought has been used, all have done well so far. I would expect the same from those.

I assumed that "previously owned" is opposed to "refurbished" but perhaps I was wrong.

I would not buy a used iPhone… for myself.

I avoid buying anything from Best Buy, so the answer is no.

....it is kind of a gamble, most are just returned with little to no use....people have gotten preowned with still full warranty [ or close to it ] but there are times when you get a bad apple......

Un-new!

I would but I'd test every single hardware component. I assume it comes with a Best Buy warranty - even 15 days to confirm the battery.

Probably not because I'm sure you can buy it cheaper on CL or elsewhere. I bought my 6s from someone on CL about 6 months ago. Pretty much brand new... the guy's wife got it as a replacement, but she decided she wanted a 7 instead. I have yet to see any "refurbished" ones even come close to the price I paid with the same specs.

I've also only bought used iPhones, but I wouildn't buy from BB. Had a couple of bad experiences with their other used/open box stuff in the past.
