    I always buy my phones unlocked and sim free.

    However after the Apple event I have decided that I want to get the iPhone 5 as although the 5s is a good upgrade I don't feel that I need any of the features that where shown off.

    I would have got the 5c but it is a huge rip off for £470 for what is only a mid range phone.

    Whats the best place to get a used iPhone 5 for around £300?
    ebay, gumtree etc and what is your experience with used iphones, being stolen etc.

    I've got my last few phones from these guys:

    They have 60 days warranty, have USB lightning cable (no charger), and come in their own branded packaging.

    My latest purchase was a grade B iPhone 5 and was mint - still not sure why it was that grade.

    Thanks for that I will check it out. Have you heard of any bad experiences with smartfonestore?
