What is the difference between second hand and refurbished?

Buying a refurbished phone is a different to buying a used handset online and here are a few reasons why:

  • A brand you can trust: Boost Mobile has been in business for over 20 years and we have partnered with Alegre who are the experts in refurbished and source only Australian compliant devices.
  • Police checks: Our partner Alegre, sources only Australian compliant phones that have been data wiped and cross checked against a national police lost and stolen database.
  • Testing and inspection: All Boost refurbs go through a 72 point inspection process testing all aspects of the phone to ensure everything from the microphone to the camera and touch screen works.
  • Warranty: Our refurb devices are covered by a 30 day satisfaction guarantee and 12 month warranty, so you don't have to worry if something goes wrong.
