Cell phones being as ubiquitous or ever present as they are, not all consumers consider themselves bound to flash the latest accessory off the assembly line. While many customers are happy to be taken in by phones offered ''free'', conditional upon a two or even three year contract, customers seeking a reasonably priced phone that does the job. Often, the the network in a customers area that may offer the best deals will leave interested customer with the stark option of either signing up for a long-term contract, or paying top dollar for an unlocked phone.
Purchasing a Sprint refurbished phone for for example allows you to take advantage of the things you love about Sprints wireless service but at the same time allow you to get the mobile phone of your choice at a discount. This article will focus on models of sprint refurbished phones that get the job done and still contain a respectable features package.
The Blackberry Curve is a still very capable model and one of many popular sprint phones without a contract you can purchase. New editions are still sold for over $300, but a quick search among refurbished models on the market now can reveal examples for sale at under $100. The Curve can function as a phone, web browser, mp3 player, and a decent camera all in one. The thing to watch out for in buying your refurbished Curve is whether it is a 2G or a 3G version. The 3 G version surfs the web a little bit faster, but the true reason for it to be an issue of concern is that over time, especially in urban areas, providers can upgrade their networks to the point that 2g handsets are unable to perform all the available functions. If your willing to overlook this, older Blackberry models can be had for as little as $50.
A customer looking for touch screen options similar to the I phone has several models that have recently hit the refurbished market to choose from. The HTC Touch pro model can be found for under $100 as well, and has not only the sleek look of the I phone, but a full retractable keyboard as well. A similarly stylish option is the Samsung SPH M800. Both phones feature a decent camera and video system, and respectable storage space to store multimedia files.
If a slightly less technically daunting is being sought, a Samsung SPH M450 Slider is an option about maybe a step down from the Blackberry Curve. It does however offer a larger screen by virtue of its being a slider.
Of course, flip phones continue to be the mainstay of most cellphone buyers. Despite the lower comparative cost of new models, they can still cost over $150 at the local electronics store. A sprint phone in this category is the LG LX 400, which is a conventional flip phone with camera and video, available for about 39.00.
Below that price point, a customer is likely to hit the law of diminishing returns when is come to value vs reliability. These are only a very small sample of the models that Sprint refurbished phone available, so happy hunting!

You can now get a used Samsung Moment for sale, a new one, or a refurbished one. Depending on the type of budget you are working with. Buying used cell phones is often an over looked option and I highly recommend giving the purchase of at least a refurbished Moment as a kind of middle of the road compromise. You can get a basically new cell phone for a discounted price. Nothing wrong with that.
Now before you look through the new Samsung Moments for sale or any other cheap phones for sale, there is a debate going on that the phone has a poor battery life. Apparently there is a minor glitch in the Android system in the way it reads the battery meter. What happens is that the phone will get down to 15% battery life rather quickly prompting most users to go running for their cell phone power adapters or car chargers depending on what activity one may be engaged in. But here is the rub, once it gets down to 15% it can stay there for hours and hours on end. Meaning you have more battery life than the phone really indicates.
Usually this can be remedied by having two full charges and complete drainage. At that point the battery meter reading application should reset and begin reading the battery correctly. If you bought your Samsung Moment used or maybe new at a location that maybe an authorized dealer, a replacement battery may be necessary. With a properly functioning battery you should get 330 minutes of talk time. Though I've learned not to hold cell phone manufacturers to this.
This Samsung also features a 3.0 megapixel camera that auto focuses itsself. Thats right, a digital camera on a cell phone that focuses itself. You got to love modern technology! Throw in digital video capture, global positioning system aka GPS, navigation, wifi connection for when you want to browse the internet on a wireless network. It has a slot for extended memory and the icing on the cake, visual voicemail.
