Used Cell Phones: An Overview

The new and fancy HTC Aria runs on Android

Whether you’re in the market for a refurbished Blackberry, jailbroken iPhone, or just a cheaper alternative to what carriers sell, used cell phones offer a lot of options.

How do you choose the right used cell phones?

  • Make sure the seller is honest. Cellular Trendz has a 30 day warranty so you can ensure your phone is functional.
  • Do you want a camera? “mp”, or megapixel, tells you the quality. 5 is about as high as most cell phones are currently offering. Some cell phones can zoom, and some have an led flash.
  • Do you want a smartphone? Smartphones require data plans, which can be expensive (it’s usually best to get an unlimited plan, as charges above your regular rate can be outlandish).
  • Do you want to use apps? The industry leaders for app stores are the iPhone, Blackberries, and Android, all of which are available as used cell phones.
  • Are you just looking for a simple phone at a great price? Then I recommend checking out the Nokia section of our used cell phones, in particular the just in Nokia 2600.
  • Do you want a touchscreen or a full qwerty keyboard? Both are available among used cell phones, and some phones even have both.
  • Pick a carrier, if you like the one you’re with, or choose an unlocked cell phone, which offers you increased freedom.

Whatever your preferences when choosing used cell phones, make sure to check out Cellular Trendz comparison tool, as well as there amazing repair program.

Touch Screen or Full Keyboard?

When choosing among used cell phones, you may get hung up on the numerous options available to you. Picking between a touchscreen and a qwerty keyboard is one decision that is not as hard as it used to be, with many used cell phones integrating both options (often in a sliding keyboard). Here are some great used cell phones that give you the option to either use touchscreen or keyboard: Palm Treo 755P, the HTC Wing, and the Audiovox XV6700 all make great use of touchscreen-keyboard integration (Plus the Audiovox comes at different price points!).

A touchscreen is great not just for the novelty, but because there are lots of great apps that use the touchscreen feature to expand game play and interaction. This feature is best if you’re going to be using your phone mostly for pleasure. Another great aspect of using a touchscreen is that it’s quieter than a clicky-keyboard, so it’s great for places where you don’t want to be distracting.

Their are some great refurbished cell phones that feature a touch screen, most prominently the HTC Touch which has a beautiful touchscreen.

Finally, a full qwerty keyboard is a great feature for refurbished cell phones whether you’re a constant texter, or whether you have business needs that you need to meet promptly from any location. A refurbished Blackberry is a great option for those looking for this feature; not only do refurbished blackberries have great keyboards, they have great organization of conversations between different mediums (email, text, chat…).
