Re: Refurbished Ipone 4's

Apple has a great refurbishment program.  Every refurb I've received (purchased or warranty replacement) has looked flawless.


The only difference between the refubished and the new is going to be the warranty you will receive.


New offers a one year warranty from the date of purchase.


Refurbished devices that are purchased are only guaranteed 90 days minimum warranty (although the way Apples warranty program works it could be a little longer).  


And with either new or refurbished you should be able to purchase an Apple Care warranty if you feel you want to extend it for a year (but has to be done before the warranty expires).
