Refurbished phones on Giffgaff

Refurbished phones present a fantastic way to get the phone you want at a massively reduced price. Refurbished phones are handsets that have been returned to the provider either with a fault; within the cooling off period; or simply because the previous owner is upgrading. Whatever the reason, the provider will check the device, and restore it to full working order before it is sold as a refurbished phone at a big discount on the original retail price. Obviously, these phones may have some signs of being previously owned (and this is reflected in the price) but they are in full working condition and come with all the necessary components to have you up and running.
