You can get them from Sprint PCS. All you have to do is go into any Sprint PCS location and ask what models they have available that are refurbished. These phones cost anywhere from $20 - $75 whereas if bought NEW, they would cost you $80 - $300. All phones eventually wind up back at the factory for repairs. then they use them when people make claims on their insurance policies. they NEVER send you a NEW phone. So, common sense dictates that buying a refurbished phone is more cost effective.
I bought one NEW phone a looooooooooooooong time ago. when I found out what they do, I went for the refurbished ones. they work just as good as the NEW ones, just don’t cost as much.
