What is a refurbished phone?

Our refurbished range are devices that have been traded in with O2 Recycle or returned to us within 14 days.


All devices go through a 30-point quality check, which includes securely wiping all the data. And, on top of that they come with a 12-month warranty to make sure your device keeps running as it should.

What’s included with a refurbished phone?

All our refurbished phones come with a USB charging cable and a sim pin. We've decided not to include a USB charging plug, since 70% of people already have one at home. But don’t worry, if you need a USB charging plug or headphones, you’ll have the option to buy them after choosing your tariff.

What quality should I expect with a refurbished phone?

Our refurbished devices are checked for both the internal mechanism as well as the external shell. Some devices may have a bit of wear and tear, but every handset will have no more than five deep scratches or chips up to 2mm in length. We put every device through a 30-point quality check to ensure you’re getting a fully functional phone straight out of the box.
