Refurbished iPhone SE for $85 here

Refurbished iPhone SE for $85 here

Buy Here


Apple's iPhone SE is aging for sure as it has been two years since it has been announced, but it's still sold by Apple and considered a viable midranger. In fact, it may still be the most powerful phone with a 4-inch screen available today. It rocks the same internals as the iPhone 6s, though, it lacks 3D Touch. So, you are almost getting the full Apple experience, but not quite.

Its camera is still decent, it feels nice in the hand, and it makes for a great backup device or a phone for non-powerusers. At a sub-$100 price, it's still a steal, albeit refurbished. But hey, you get a $35 prepaid card with Straight Talk. This means unlimited talk & text for 30 days and 2 GB of LTE, after which you get throttled to 2G speeds. Straight Talk phones are usually locked to the carrier for the first 12 months of use. After that, you can request a SIM unlock.

That’s too expensive still for hardware from 2012 that Apple doesn’t even support with updates anymore. A $25 flip phone would serve you better.

Apple still updates the SE and will do so for 3 more years as they kept the update support the same as iOS 11. (iPhone 5s and up) Youre really getting a $50 Iphone when you subract the "free" plan ($35) I would buy one in a heartbeat if i lived in the USA. Too bad these deals would never reach the Great White North. (Canada)

Feel bad for you, just picked one up super cheap $91 total with tax and free shipping to Florida! You're right about essentially getting it for $50 when you subtract the "free" plan. I'm not even gonna use the service, just wanted a replacement SE to use as a dash cam (60fps HD recording; 30fps 4K) lol. My friend uses straight talk though, I'll sell her the service card. Sent directly to email, not an actual card.

Too expensive??? It's an iPhone, not some Android crap. It can play even today's most demanding games like PUBG without any problem. It'll receive up to iOS 14 at least.

Even though I think that is a good buy I will say, where is that high resale value all you apple fans say iPhones have.

Everything should run fast on this smartphone, especially since it doesn't have a HD display. It's sub HD. Even low end Android devices are giving you full HD or now Full HD+ resolution displays. That means those Android devices are giving you a display that has over 3 times the number of pixels compared to that really low resolution iPhone SE. Apple themselves are even having a hard time selling iPhone 6S, 7, and 8's these days. Why? Because even those devices only have HD displays. Carriers are still selling iPhone 6's. Not to mention Apple rereleased an iPhone 6 in 2017 with 32 gb of storage instead of the original 16 gb of storage. So carriers are still selling iPhone 6's, 6s's, 7's, and 8's in 2018. Why do you think we are seeing tons of BOGO deals for iPhones 8's even. Also some are also including gift cards with those BOGO deals as well. Those iPhones are overpriced for what you are getting in 2018, especially when you compare them to the competition. Also when the 3 new iPhones drop in September 2018. What do you think is going to happen to those HD iPhones, nevermind the sub HD iPhones. All the newer iPhones have resolutions higher than full HD+ displays. So those HD iPhones are not going to sell well at all. Maybe we will see buy one and get 3 or 4 deals when those new iPhones arrive. Gone are the days of that iPhone resale crap. Even Apple knows that crap. Plus many of those iDiots that said those things before. Certainly cannot say that anymore. Sissy is definitely correct.

Just because "It's an iPhone" doesn't make it fantastic, you do know that right?

That price makes the deal fantastic... It's the same as the deductible I will pay this month to repair my Huawei.

Leo_MC as if you own anything other than iPhones. Your a well known Apple zealot. This deal is around so they can dump the iPhone SE's that they have in stock. Because iPhone SE sales are not moving off the shelf. So in order to move them, then they have to come up with deals like these. Carriers are having a time trying to get rid of iPhone 6's which came on the market back in 2014. Let alone trying to sell iPhone SE's. People have caught onto the iPhone sales antics.

As long as you will think in the terms of "fanboy", "zealot" and such, you will not be able to get the products and the services you really need; you'll get what you want and what you want will always be the subject of manipulation when you refuse to think. I don't know why they sell the phone at that price, I only know that it's a great deal for a great phone, even refurbished (a sh iPhone 5s is more than 100€).

The one that refuses to think is always you, since you are a blind zealot. How can you say that is a good deal. Especially when you don't need to get information from this site in regards to the iPhone SE's. Carriers are having a hell of a time trying to get rid of them still. Just like carriers are having a hard time getting rid of iPhone 6's, 6s's, 7's, and 8's. Look at the carriers and you will see what I am saying is 100% true. I guess that is what happens when a company like Apple continues to recycle old designs, and use them to death.

How would a $25 flip phone serve one better? That was a dumb ass post.

Nothing like a good ole' refurb. Just means less parts to go around to fix the phones people are holding onto. Eol is here, and I'd be guessing they wanna clear out inventory. Parts won't always be around; nothing like a phone that can't be fixed, cause parts went to refurb. returns.
