Link to the silver version.
When the phones at £139.99 are out of stock, there are a number of offers at £149.99 (64GB models/Very good condition cost from £169.99, see below): Rose Gold EE, Vodafone Silver, Gold, Rose Gold and Space Grey.

The iPhone 6s has a larger 4.7 inch screen than the 4 inch SE (which was £99.99 yesterday, now £109.99 on Vodafone). The iPhone 6s also adds 3D-touch.

This was £159.99 with £20 off at the checkout for Gold and Silver. Potentially a further Potentially a further 6% (really 5% as no cashback on VAT) (£7) with Topcashback or Quidco (site offering best deal varies). With a 4.7 inch screen these may be more prone to screen damage than the 4 inch SE. To avoid this, several "Very Good" condition iPhone 6s's are available at £179.99 (O2 in Space Grey, Gold, Rose Gold, Silver, and on Vodafone in Gold and Rose Gold) or higher. Larger memory phones cost from £169.99 in "Good" condition (64GB Vodafone Space Grey for £169.99 and Rose Gold for £169.99). MusicMagpie state in their FAQ that "All returns are dealt with on an order-by-order basis".

MusicMagpie offer a 12 Month warranty on their tech items. Locked to O2, unlocking costs from about £5 on ebay. O2 powers Giffgaff and Tesco mobile networks, so this wouldn't need to be unlocked for them.

The iPhone 6s was released in Sept 2015 (two generations before the current 8/X), and supported for 2 years 5 months so far (the earlier iPhone 5 was supported for 4 years 11 months). The end of Apple support for this device should be later than the iPhone 5s and the iPhone 6, which are still both supported. For comparison, their cheapest iPhone 7 is £289.99.

16gb is a joke, more than 10gb will be used by the OS. Couple of apps and you are out of space.

£40 more than the same one you posted last night?


It's a iPhone 6s with a larger screen than the SE deal I posted, which I have now highlighted in the deal. The SE is now £109.99 on Vodafone.

Whilst I agree 16gb is small there's no way the os eats up 10gb. It's about 1.5 or something

System takes up 5.89gb on my current 16gb 6s running 11.2
Voted hot- not sure whyit’s cold
Have to say that these ‘refurbished ‘ iPhones are hit and miss. I bought one last year and was disappointed... it arrived filthy, the speaker didn’t work and the condition could only be described as poor. I couldn’t see any evidence of it even being cleaned let alone ‘refurbished by one of music magpies in house technicians ‘ so mine went back and I wouldn’t buy another from them.
7% quidco back thanks

Whilst not quite 10gb that's still a crazy amount. My 16gb iPhone 5s has around 12gb free after a restart. What have they done to the more recent ones lol
Edited by: "AndrewRoss" 4th Mar
Does it come with box &charger?not mentioned on website.
Good price but as others pointed out condition is hit and miss. Go in on the basis you might have to spend the time returning it (no monetary cost just time).
I have a 16GB & I’m using exactly 50% of my storage currently.. latest iOS and quite a few downloaded apps too! Comment above is nonsense.

I am looking at a phone on eBay through music magpie, do you know if they do free returns through eBay? I know they do 14 day returns just wasn't sure if they are free.

The OS actually eats 10gb of space, which forced me to upgrade to a different model.

Google Paypal free returns and activate it on your account. You then get 10 or 12 free returns a year. Really simple, they refund up to £15 per claim.

My 6 plus showing system as 21.67GB, bit I know that's not just the OS. However, this seems a crazy amount and I'm trying to figure out what's it comprised of as music and photos are listed separately. I do have work email and work onedrive stuff on it.
Thanks went for the 64GB version on Vodafone for £169. Will see how good it is condition wise otherwise return it. Shame they don't make a rugged iphone as my wife needs it!

Nice to know.

To me, this seems to be a better value deal - store.musicmagpie.co.uk/pro…one. Yes it's £30 more but it's a 64gb version meaning less (or no) hassle with storage space after installing not that many apps and taking photos/videos.
£40 more if jot Vodafone ..still good .

Back up, wipe, reinstall, restore.

If you keep doing handset updates (bolt ons) IMO you will have a bigger OS
ive bought refurb phone from MM a few years ago and its still working fine. once its in a case you won't see the surface scratches etc. in regards to 16gb storage, yes it is low, however I personally bought the phone for my mum. I needed her to 1) have a phone 2) be connected to watsapp 3) she doesn't really take photos, maybe just a few 4) to view media like videos of grandkids 5) I can face time her when away. combined with a cheap contract SIM and you are up and running for less.

just my 2 pennies worth
Switched deal to point at Silver, rather than Gold, which is out of stock. If this goes out of stock, there are a number of "Good" options at £149.99, and 64GB options at £169.99. Many "Very Good" condition iPhone 6s's mentioned in the deal are still available at £179.99.

The link is here, and the offer looks good for anything that isn't too expensive (PayPal's cover above £100 isn't as good as section 75), but that you are likely to return. The loss of rights might be worth the ability to freely return (despite the hassle to claim). So, for refurbished/secondhand stuff it sounds ideal.

I mentioned this in the deal . Definitely there are good options for those that need more storage or condition, but combining both storage and better condition together can cost. I have my fingers crossed for condition (I went for storage).

7% quidco back thanks


It's only 3% with Quidco currrently. The best cashback looks to be switching between Quidco and Topcashback. Quidco currently offer 7% on media, but only 3% on "Store purchases" (Topcashback are 6% on "Store purchases" until the end of today). Last week Quidco were offering 10% on media and 6% on "store purchases", with Topcashback lower than 6%.

My "good" 6s arrived today with a non-Apple cable (no charger), SIM drawer-opener widget and complimentary plastic screen protector. It seems in good nick, it has a couple of visible scratches on the edges and the screen has a lot of little, minor scratches where the previous owner hasn't used a screen protector (naughty, naughty!). I will probably buy a 9H tempered glass screen protector that hides the mini-scratches from my eye! Much better condition than the "good" pink SE I sent back, which had an obvious impact to one corner and largish scratch on the screen.

Cashback was a little lower than I expected on Topcashback (only 83.333% of expected), and here's why:
topcashback.co.uk/mus…ie/
"Cashback may only be paid on the net value excluding VAT and delivery."
So 6% is really 5% as no cashback on VAT. Site offering best deal seems to vary between Topcashback or Quidco.
Edited by: "EQL" 7th Mar
I looked at this for screen protection:

If you and friends bought a few phones, you could buy screen protectors for everyone (4)!:
