This is my first time using BackMarket and everything pertaining to the order delivery was successful. The phone came in a timely enough manner and all the links connected with FedEx worked. When I got the phone I was able to turn it on, connect with my itunes, boot up, and use the phone once my sim card was transferred. The only issue I have is that there is some play on the left side of the screen, like it is bouncy and can be depressed making an audible sound as air is moved out. This is definitely an unusual potential fail point, but there doesn't seem to be any damage. I will just have to be extremely cautious, and I think I may use scotch tape or something to affix it. Not ideal to have to macguyver the thing in Hour 1 of the phone, but overall I am hopeful it is going to be fine.
Screen is lifted a bit. Wish I didn't have to "fix" a just opened phone, even if it is refurbished. Hope it lasts at least a year. Everything internal works fine
Haven’t used the phone as a phone rather as backup for the radio option because of headphone plug in for a (blind person user). Wish it had the 5g option. Haven’t tried Camera option yet as it isn’t activated for phone use.
I got a IPhone SE 2016 Model In Fair Condition. It was still great and works perfectly. It came with 80% battery life and the next day it dropped to 79% battery life, but it still works great and holds its charge. I will definitely be buying from here again. I was worried before ordering but now I’ll be ordering with confidence.
My phone was delivered on time and in perfect condition. The price was the best I could find online and didn't have to deal with buying from other people and risking a failed transaction. Will definitely be order from Back Market again!
I am so happy. Although I could tell it was used, it arrived in very, clean, new looking condition. I had no problem transferring my data. I am technology challenged and yet it was very easy, even for me! It is working better than my old SE2016. I highly recommend your site!
When you buy an unlocked iPhone SE, you'll have multiple options for choosing a carrier network. It is the safest option if you're not already locked into a long term contract with a network like Verizon, T-Mobile or AT&T. With an unlocked phone, you also have the option to easily switch between different network providers if you need to.
However, if you're happy with your current network provider and you don't plan on switching any time soon, you might save a little more money by shopping for an iPhone locked to a carrier. Locked phones tend to cost less than unlocked phones on average.
Whichever you option you pick, Back Market has plenty of options to help you find an iPhone SE at a low price.
