iPhone 5c

The iPhone 5c is an affordable, but stylish addition to the iPhone range which can be picked up as a refurbished model on a very competitively priced monthly contract.

It launched with 5 colourful variations – blue, green, pink, white and yellow so you are bound to find a 5c that matches your personality.

Refurbished iPhones represent amazing value and tend to sell out fast, so choose your preferred model and colour from the options below and check the stock availability today.

All you need to know about the Apple iPhone 5c

The iPhone 5c is a mid-range iPhone model from Apple that comes in a variety of vibrant colours. This is a departure from the Apple of old that traditionally only produced devices in black or white. With the 5c you can get a blue, green, yellow, pink or white coloured phone. The front of the phone surrounding the 4 inch screen is still black but the surround and the whole of the back of the phone is coloured using moulded plastic. On the one hand this can be considered as funky and durable, but on the other it doesn’t have the classy, polished feel of an aluminium device. Ultimately, if you are the sort of the person that likes to protect your iPhone by using a case, it is unlikely that you would be able to tell what model iPhone you were using so provided that the phone is well featured (which it is) you could get yourself a bargain iPhone by taking out a refurbished iPhone 5c contract.

Many technical specifications on the phone are near, or identical to those of the iPhone 5 so if you already have an iPhone 5, an upgrade to the iPhone 5c may not seem like a huge jump so you might want to consider a later model. However, if you have not owned an iPhone before and want a great value iPhone, the 5c on a refurbished contract would be an excellent choice.

Due to the numerous different colours and storage capacity options on the iPhone 5c, there are typically a great range of refurbished iPhone 5c phone contracts on offer. For around £15 per month you could get yourself a free iPhone 5c on contract which would be a good option for students or those that have bad credit for instance.

The great thing about getting a refurbished iPhone is that you will be getting a phone that is indistinguishable from being brand new. Always check the terms and conditions from the specific provider, but the vast majority of phones are in mint condition and have barely (or not) been used before.
