    Hey everyone!

    I am looking to buy a very good condition used iPhone 5 for Sprint to replace my water damaged Verizon one, so I can activate it on FreedomPop for free service. My current budget is $215 but I can save more $ (allowance) to get to $250. Can I get some advice on where to look? Any good pointers will be appreciated.


    Thanks!

    Try swappa.com, then there's eBay and of course Craigslist.

    I know this sounds weird but ask family and friends, usually you can get a better deal if you know the person.

    I would, but the problem is that everyone else I know is on Verizon or AT&T. But I did manage to find a good listing to buy from, I just need to act in time to actually get the iPhone.

    I'm looking at FreedomPop too

    I'm thinking the same as you. I have an iPhone 4 (AT&T) that I switched to Consumer Cellular - The home button doesn't really work anymore. I have to press it like 10 times to do anything.

    Since it doesn't really work, I'm basically just parking the phone number, hoping that FreedomPop offers the 5S (once the 6 comes out) for the same $350 they're offering the 5 (refurbished) for.
