Keep Your Monthly Mobile Costs Down with a Preowned iPhone from Fonestore

There’s no mistaking the fact that running a mobile contract is getting more expensive these days, with the latest smartphones coming attached to deals of £50+ per month. However, that doesn’t necessarily have to be the case with preowned iPhones available at Fonestore for significantly less than you’d pay for a new one.

Being able to take advantage of a preowned iPhone enables you to make use of the myriad of SIM-only contracts that are available at a significantly lower monthly price than those with phones attached them. Typically speaking, you’ll pay around ⅓ or ½ the amount when compared to a phone/sim deal with the same quantity of minutes, texts and data.

The Same Customer Rights

When you buy a preowned iPhone, you’ll pay a lot less than you would if you were to buy new, however, that doesn’t mean that you lose any of your consumer rights. Even new iPhones only come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty and that’s exactly what you get with preowned iPhones from Fonestore. We offer a full 12-month parts and labour warranty, meaning that if it goes wrong, you’ll get it fixed, completely free of charge.

The Same Cooling Off Period

When you buy online, you don’t get the same ability to see the device you’re buying up close and personal. This means that you don’t truly know if whatever you’re purchasing is exactly what you’re looking for and it’s for this reason that we offer a 14-day cooling-off period on all of our preowned Apple products. We want you to be 100% happy with your device and this time allows you to make sure that you are.

Flexible Payment

We understand that even though our preowned iPhones are available at great prices, you might still want to spread the cost. That’s why we offer the ability to pay via PayPal Credit, which gives you the facility to pay gradually for your preowned iPhone. Of course, it’s subject to status and acceptance by PayPal, but it does offer a way to make buying your new iPhone that much more comfortable.

What Have You Got to Lose?

With a 14 day change-of-mind period, a 12-month warranty and the ability to pay at your own pace, you really have got nothing to lose from choosing Fonestore for your next smartphone. If you decide during the first 14 days that you’re not happy with your preowned iPhone, you can send it back for a full refund, no questions asked.

If you’d like to know more about the preowned tech we have available at Fonestore, please take a look around our website www.fonestore.co.uk. If however, you’d like any questions answering before you make your purchase, give us a call on 020 7097 1604 today and we’ll be able to explain everything you need to know. Thanks for reading. We’ll be back again soon with more advice and guidance from the world of cut-price Apple tech.

Get Your iPhone XR the Savvy Way with Fonestore

It’s easy to see why the iPhone XR is such a popular device, as it’s a fantastic looking smartphone that just packed with features.

The great thing about opting for a pre-owned XR is that the huge saving you make on the list price of a new one doesn’t come at a cost to your enjoyment of the device or your consumer rights.

14 Day Cooling-Off Period

Again, when you buy a new smartphone, you usually (but not always) get a ‘cooling-off’ period to ensure that you like the tech you’re investing in, so we think it’s a right you should get when buying a pre-owned iPhone XR. When you buy any o our pre-owned iPhones, pre-owned iPads, pre-owned iPods or pre-owned Apple watches, you get 14 days during which to have a good play with your device and make sure that it’s the right one for you.

Want to Find Out Why So Many People are Turning to Pre-Owned Apple Tech?

How to Make Your Pre-Owned iPhone Faster In 6 Simple Steps

So you have intended to buy a Pre-Owned iPhone? It’s absolutely a great idea since you can get a good smartphone without spending a lot of money as you would do if you purchased it in a brand new condition. But there are beliefs that since Pre-Owned iPhone are used ones, so they are slower in performance compared to their original counterparts. At somehow, it might be true, but the cool thing is that there are always simple tricks that can make your refurbished iPhone run faster and smoother.

There are a few things you can do right now to make your Pre-Owned iPhone work better, and they don’t cost you a single penny. So, consider them and get the most out of your used or refurbished iPhone!

  • Uninstall Apps That You Don’t Use

You will surely agree that there are several apps on your iPhone neither you use them nor delete them. These unnecessary apps can make your phone run slower because they occupy some memory. Therefore, it’s better to uninstall such apps if you want to optimise your iPhone and free up some space.

To uninstall or delete unnecessary apps, you can follow the below-mentioned two ways.

Way 1: Go to Settings App > General > Usage > Manage Storage and then choose any app that you no longer use and tap on Delete App button.

Way 2: Hold down the app icon that you want to delete and then release it when it starts jiggling. From the left corner of the app icon, you should tap on the X sign button. Then, you should tap on Delete to confirm the app deletion.

  • Delete Your Old Videos and Music

Media collections such as videos and music files also clog up plenty of storage space, which can affect your iPhone’s performance. So, to get rid of the videos or music that you don’t need, you should go to the videos or Music folders and then choose the file that you want to delete. If you want to delete the entire media library, you should open the Apple Music App and then tap on Delete from the library. However, it is recommended that you should back up your videos and music files via iCloud or iTunes if you want to keep them stored.

  • Reboot Your iPhone

Sometimes, you might experience sluggishness in your refurbished iPhone. It might take too long to launch apps or to go from one window to the next. This typically happens because so many applications start hogging your iPhone’s memory and make it run slower than usual. To remedy this problem, you just have to reboot or restart your iPhone regularly.

To reboot, all you need to do is to just hold the Home button and Power button until your iPhone will be turned off. Then, release the home button and press the power button to restart your iPhone. Not only, it will clear out all the unwanted caches and wasted RAM usage but it will also keep the iOS system refreshing and save your manual cleaning operations.

  • Make UI Faster

The latest iOS navigation system has made things easier while you try to find or open an app. This proves that Apple is doing a great job to improve the animation of apps transitions. But here we want to know how to make your iPhone faster, therefore, you can enable the Reduce Motion option. It will let you speed up the animations which help you to get a faster User interface on your iPhone.

To activate this option, open Settings App > General > Accessibility > Reduce Motion.

  • Deactivate the Background App Refresh

Did you know so many apps on your iPhone are working in the background that consume a ton of power and resources? That means, when you turn on the Background App Refresh, it will drain the battery life and make your iPhone device slower. Therefore, you should keep this feature turned off.

To turn off Background Refresh on your iPhone, simply launch the Settings app > General > Background App Refresh. If you want to deactivate it for some certain apps, then just scroll down and look at the apps that are using background App Refresh. Tap any apps that you think they should not be refreshed in the background.

  • Update iOS

Updating the iOS on your refurbished iPhone is another trick you can try to make your phone run faster. In the process of updating the iOS system, many bugs will be fixed automatically and the device will be optimised at its best performance. So, upgrade your iPhone on the latest iOS version and ensure your iPhone works as good as a new one. To download and install any iOS update, simply launch the Settings App > General > Software update.

Pre-Owned Phones with Warranty

Mobile phones have come a long way since 2000. Many even feel nostalgic about the days of playing snake on their old Nokia 3210.

As mobile phones continue to evolve, newer models can become outdated in a short space of time. We all know those tech-lovers who upgrade their phone as soon as the latest technology comes along. And how many of us have obsolete mobile phones, knocking around in our drawers? Whether they have a cracked screen or a dodgy keyboard, sought after models are often worth refurbishing.

For those interested in buying an iPhone at a reasonable price, it’s often best to look for one refurbished. Especially since so many phone users are willing to sell. Even the first generation of iPhone have a number of fantastic features, which users love.

When buying a Pre-Owned phone of any make, it’s important to buy from a trusted buyer.

Our phones come with a whopping 1 Year warranty. Not only that, all our products are tested by a team of qualified engineers.
