    I want a 64gb 4s so I need to buy on eBay. There are quite a lot of apple refurbs, in their shrink wrap/plastic on the glass. Do these things have warranty? Can you purchase apple care for them, and how much? (UK). Some people are selling their insurance replacements. Are these better than the refurbs? I presume that they are all new. Would you buy an apple refurbed replacement? Thoughts welcomed folks, thanks

    no you can't get a warranty on it. Well at least I think you can't. It has to be bought within the first 30 days of buying a new product and since you're not getting it from Apple the only warranty is what's left on the device. If they bought it with AppleCare + then you still have a year left on the device.

    I've got a White unlocked 64GB 4S for sale if you're interested?

    6 months old, not a scratch on it.

    If its an apple refurb they all come with 3 months warranty or carry on from the original warranty which ever is greatest.

    You can buy additional warranty anytime within the warranty period.

    Apple refurbed iPhones are great, you couldn't tell it's a refurbed phone.

    A insurance replacement will be a brand new phone surely?
