    The phone was dirty, chipped every where as if a dog had chewed on it! The screen had a cover on it that was disgusting!!! Don’t waste your time or money… mine went back the day I got it in!

    The phone I purchased for my son worked about four weeks and after restarting it several times it still would not work. The screen does not respond to touch anymore. A waste of money if you ask me because my 30 days were up by the time it stopped working.

    Quick delivery and works great. No dents or scratches. Transferred my AT&T number with no problems. Difficulty hearing calls and then realized it was the plastic shipping cover! Removed the cover and the phone works like new.

    Its a good phone works as I expected. Has alot of micro scratches on the back but I don’t mind. Front camera is a bit grainy but still holds true to 720p perfromance.

    Phone wouldn’t charge one night but has been normal ever since. My problem with this phone is when I put it on silent, the camera still makes a loud shutter noise. Nothing I do will silence it. I’m thinking maybe it’s from a different country or it’s just defective. Either way, it’s really annoying and I can’t fix it. Other than that, I’ve had for a week or so and it works fine.

    The phone looked new and arrived quickly. It worked with AT&T and was a good value. This model is discontinued so finding a protective case was difficult.

    You could tell it was used(scratches) but, the price was right. However , shortly after the 30 day warranty the screen did a little twitch then went black. Never got it working again.

    I was worried after reading some reviews, but I am pleased with the phone. I ordered it for my daughter and she loves it. It had one small scratch on the side, which is not very noticeable. It is worth the price. I would definitely recommend this iphone.

    I purchased the 32GB 5c (not compatible w/Sprint or Verizon) and have been more than satisfied. The refurbished phone was in better shape than expected. I went to my AT&T corporate store and they transferred the information from my old phone to the new one. In hind sight though I believe I would have been even more satisfied purchasing a 5s. You can’t go wrong either way.

    I received this phone in May and it seemed to be working fine. My husband finally made the switch last week with his sim card and it won’t stay connected to the our mobile network even though it’s supposed to be unlocked for T-Mobile. Very disappointed!!! Waste of Money!! T-Mobile and Apple both said there is nothing they can do.

    Always a great product, and now Groupon is giving a wonderful deal on it. The phone works perfectly. As stated in the description, there is some wear and tear, but I had to really look for it. The Groupon arrived when promised. This is my first Groupon and I can’t wait to find something else to buy.

    The product overall is fine. However, since receiving it, the volume when attempting to hold a conversation with someone has gradually been getting worse. It is now to the point that even in a quiet room, the second party’s voice is barely detectable. Is there a way to correct this?

    I was concerned after reading some of the negative reviews. When I received this phone a few days ago, I was happy that the condition (cosmetic) of the iPhone 5C (16GB) was nearly perfect (I can see that the previous owner used a case as there were some faint outlines near the camera and charging port. I was a bit concerned as the phone label on the back said “Carrier – Sprint” and we are on AT&T. However, when I put the SIM card from the broken phone into this, it started up just fine and shows up on my AT&T account. I’ve tested making/receiving phone calls and iMessages – all good. They did include a message card saying that “Sprint and Verizon devices are always GSM unlocked and can be used on any GSM network carrier”. As far as charging – When I received this, it showed 70% so I charged the phone to 100% using an Apple charger I already had and then left the phone on all last night through today. It shows a charge still at 100%. I’m leaving the phone on (connected to wireless) to see if it holds a charge. Assuming no problems – this one is a great deal! I do have a 30-day warranty – so if any problems arise, I can return this… Good luck!

    IPhone 5C: I have had it for 2 weeks. The back was scuffed up, but no cracks. The screen appeared to be new and had a peel off film on it (as if new). The battery seems excellent and all the features that I use seem to be working fine. I put an Otterbox on it to protect it and also to cover the scuffs on the back. Overall, it seems (so far), it seems to be in good working order.

    The phone arrived as described, refurbished with some minor scratches and signs of being a used phone. It’s in working condition, that is, it does what a phone is supposed to do. However, the battery life is terrible. Within a few minutes of use the battery quickly depletes to under 20% and way too often needs to be charged. A few times now the phone has gone completely dead and needed to be rebooted. When it’s on the phone works but the battery life on this phone is an absolute disappointment. For the quality of this phone the amount of money paid should have been half or less. Should have put the money towards a new phone.

    ENORMOUS EMPHASIS ON “SCRATCH & DENT” First off, this phone is absurdly overpriced considering that it is so battered that when my boss saw it in a box on my desk, she assumed I was sending it in to a recycling program. There was food embedded in the SIM card slot which I had to painstakingly pick out with a safety pin in order to get my SIM card in. Where did they get these phones? The garbage?????????

    My product didn’t work I bought an iPhone 5 every time you ran any single app it would shutdown anytime you tried to make a call it would shut down. Be careful!

    It was a very good phone! Its fast it’s good and it’s ok good quality ! But I give it a 4 stars because when it said it’d arrive in 7 days it arrived after n 8 days. Still good tho.

    The battery dies after around 5 minutes, even after a full charge. It sometimes can go from 75% to 20% in a second. Sometimes it will just die at 50%.

    I purchased a phone for my daughter in April 2017 and now in August 2017 the phone isn’t holding battery charge and barely charging. I know I won’t ever buy anything from this merchant or Groupon.
