Re: [Pilot] Certified Pre-Owned Phones Now Available at Public

Options are good but unless PM is going to offer financing, I can get the S10, S8 and Pixel 2 cheaper online. If I looked I could probably find them all. I have never bought a new phone and deal with the same 2 sellers in Canada through Ebay for mint condition (9/10) phones.

I know that you can find them cheaper but do those sellers offer a warranty with their product?

@ShawnC13 They do offer a 30 day return and a 90 day warranty. In the 20 years I have been buying used phones online I have never had an issue. Appliances? Don't get me started! LOL

 

Honestly if someone is more comfortable buying a used phone from PM at a premium because of the 1 year warranty, good on them, this program will have served its purpose. It was never going to be a fit for the likes of me.

@kb_mv, agreed as not sure if this fits my phone purchasing style either.  I would go cheaper for no warranty as phones are like everything now they are just a disposable commodity.

Re: [Pilot] Certified Pre-Owned Phones Now Available at Public

I've bought used phones all my life and I agree. Once you find a good outlet that you can trust, you'll never have to buy new again! All I can say about that is make sure you know all parameters to check before you buy used. I've had relatives who want to buy used but they don't know to check if the phone is unlocked, not blacklisted, free of water damage, etc. Does anyone know if there is a forum dedicated to tips on buying used phones? I'd love to get involved and share!

@Jess_D   good luck with the pilot,  unfortunatly the price points and models are too high and too old for me.

I don't think "old" devices is the real issue.

 

I think the prices are. The same phone models are available $$-$$$ cheaper on Amazon. And some of them are not refurbs, they're brand new unused devices straight from factory.

Having the option is good, but when selling phone models this many years old, I think that Public Mobile really needs to reconsider the pricing.

Re: [Pilot] Certified Pre-Owned Phones Now Available at Public

Hey Public Mobile did you guys decide to do an April fools joke in November? What a JOKE!! 

 

I definitely want to buy a refurbished iPhone 6s that is 5 frigging years old and has been discontinued since Sept 2016. Where do I sign up?

 

Did you get someone to dig through your Telus/Koodo storage containers to find the junk box?????

 

Wait I get it. You read through the forums and said to yourself some of our customers are not so bright and post personal information they'll fall for these ridiculous prices for our old stock. Shame on you 😡😡

 

This really makes PM look bad considering Lucky sells decent new phones that are 2019/2020 models for a fair price. 

 

Then we have PM here that used to set the bar high that now just plays follow the leader selling refurbished junk that's 5 years old (talking about the iPhone 6)

 

This is a sad sad day for PM.
