Deal: Get a refurbished Apple iPhone 6 Plus for less than $200 at Walmart
Apple recognized that there's a huge market for refurbished iPhones and recently started to sell them through its official store, but the U.S. company will not offer older models like the iPhone 5 and iPhone 6.

If you want to purchase a refurbished iPhone directly from Apple, the cheapest you can get is the iPhone 7 priced to sell for $470. However, if you want to buy an even cheaper iPhone, you'll have to look elsewhere like Amazon, Best Buy, Newegg, Walmart, and other authorized retailers.

At the moment, Walmart is running a promotion on the refurbished iPhone 6 Plus (64GB), which is now available for just $190. Usually, such a device sells for at least $225, although most of the time you'll find it at $250.

Just make sure to select the Silver/White version of the iPhone 6 Plus, not the Gold/White or Space Gray/Black models which are more expensive. You'll also be getting 2-day shipping for free, but you'll have to hurry since there aren't too many units left to sell at this price.

There's one important thing you'll want to know before you buy it though: the device comes unlocked and it will work with all GSM carriers (T-Mobile, AT&T, Ultra Mobile, Simple Mobile, Cricket), but it will not work with any CDMA carriers (Verizon, Sprint, Boost Mobile).

Bad idea. Unless these units have had motherboard repair there will be a higher chance of them developing touch disease.

Plus the low amount of ram (only 1 GB) on the iPhone 6's. Not to mention the A8 SoC is old these days, and it doesn't support ARKit. It's too old nowadays. Save your money and definitely buy something else. If it was $50, then I would say buy it. If you want a new A8 SoC, then buy a HomePod. That's a bad idea as well :-) Talk about flogging a dead horse.

Not a bad deal for a kid.

If you value your kid, then you can put a little more in , and definitely get something better than this device. Think about it. Only 1 GB of RAM these days is not enough, especially with the latest iOS. Plus no support for any AR. A 8 mp main camera, and a 1.2 mp selfie camera. And to boot it's refurbished. Who knows what state the batteries are in, do you? Look when it was first release back in September of 2014. It was something. But this is 2019, and there is a lot of better smartphones out their then this one. Especially today.

C’mon bro, you’re really reaching here. So you’re basically saying someone doesn’t value their kid, if they get them a fully functional phone, that doesn’t have killer specs? As long as my child could call or text me, and I can do the same, that’s all that matters. And these iPhones are guaranteed not to have a crappy intel modem.

I am definitely not reaching. But you said yourself "As long as my child could call or text me, and I can do the same, that’s all that matters.". You can definitely buy something better, and newer than these oldies. Plus you are clearly forgetting the refurbished part. Paying around $200 for a smartphone that came out in 2014. Come on darkkjedii.

For a kid this is just fine, and you can't convince me otherwise. If you were getting let's say... a 10 year old a phone, why would it need anymore than this? I can only speak for me, and mine...this would work fine.

As much as I hate seeing it, kids (in strollers) with cell phones/iPods are becoming more commonplace...if anything just to keep them from throwing a tantrum in public. I was brought up with the mindset 'eat what has been placed in front of you'. If your kid gets offended by the cheaper iPhone / Android you choose for their first device, that's when you kick their ass all the way to the playground. There's also Lego.

Get a new one from metro for $149.

I personally don’t think it’s a bad idea. Could be a second phone, backup, or just to have around. It’s still going to be catered to, and gets that vast eco system. For $149-$200...not bad.
