This has become a universal truth aseverything is touched and affected by modern technology.Good things come and go and are replaced by newer and fresher stuff.Technology indeed grows at an exponential rate; this marks why electronic gadgets areconstantly being outdated and replaced with new, more advanced models. So if you are lookingfor phones that you can use, why not try buying used cell phones which are slightly used?Used cell phones are now being bought for extended use. These phones can be bought withcheaper prices despite their good condition. Smartphones like Apple’s iPhone, Android phones,and Windows phones can be purchased at half the price.All you need is to find a reliable online site selling them.But of course, there are important things you should be aware of before purchasing used cellphones. This includes everything about the phone, its parts, its performance, and its features.However, there are a lot of cases where the phone being sold is stolen. Some crooks just gotlucky and were able to acquire a phone that is not theirs and they found their way to theinternet. These guys might just do the same with your money. So you have to make sure thatthe one you are dealing with is legit.Warning Number 1Check to see who the owner of the phone is.

This means, how long does the battery last? Does the screenwork properly, and if there are other features like a camera for example, do they work? Makesure you test the used cell phone out before you buy it.Ask the seller if you can hold on to it for a day to see how extensive the battery lasts. Risks are ifthey wont let you test it out, there must be some kind of snag connected with it.Warning Number 3With the high cost of cell phones nowadays, there is a possibility that the used cell phone thatyou are making an allowance for was in fact stolen. Often thieves will snip someones phone,wipe the memory, or revamp it, and sell it to an unsuspicious victim.Or, sometimes they rip-off the phones straight from the manufacturer, making the total cost ofthe cell phones much higher because of the price of recovery.Essentially, the old idea is still right, even for a contemporary cell phone. If the deal is too goodto be true, be cautious.
  3. 3. Of course buying a used cell phone is a good way to save money, particularly if you are one ofthose folks who just fond of using a phone as a phone and not as a camera or a music player. Inessence, youre going to save yourself a load of money.
