Can I take out AppleCare?



Not on refurbs
Don't trust groupon may not deliver and you get credit

Not on refurbs


You can if it's less than 12 months since the "refurb" was originally purchased.

yup - i did on my o2 refresh one
same as this
Not quite sure how this is a deal, I saw this earlier, and the people who supply the phone actually do the 32gb one for £250......

£255 for white

£230 for white 16gb

In fact the Groupon offer states 'Phone will be in full working order but will have a few fine scratches on the front, back and on the metal surrounds.'

Where as their actual website states 'With very few scuff marks, NO scratches, No dents and fully working condition.'

You decide.

Has anyone bought from hotbargainphones before?

There are cheaper refurbs with 12m warranty on eBay (here for example), at least you'll get your money back on eBay rather than Groupon credits which you'll never use.

and with that they offer a 100 day warranty; not sure how you can have no scratches but scuffs are OK!
Groupon is awful you never receive item from 3rd party and groupon refund you as a groupon credit and not into your bank be aware
Used groupon many times, never had any issues- seems like hukd have vendetta against them
I had many problems with group on if faulty item received. As above given 200£ group on credit, while refused to refund to my bank. Dealing with customer service is like speak in English with duck. You tell them facts they read you a templates text... No trust for groupon now. But previously used it on weekly basis.
So no vendetta. Just experience.. I think soon it'll happen to HUkD
I can't believe that these iphones don't even have NFC. I chuckle to myself everytime i pull out my galaxy note 3 which I paid 400 quid for.

What do you use NFC for?
For those who need an iphone, its an acceptable price, especially considering that it is unlocked and has got some warranty. No box or original accessories are the bad things.

I chuckle when I I don't see NFC widely accepted on the high street

Oh right. That's why 90% of people paying by card at mcdonalds use NFC.

You're the type of person that follows Apple updates as if that is what people should be using. You get dual core, you say "why do you need quad core". You get a dribbly 1gb ram, "why do you need any more?". You don't get root access, "why do you need that?". You get a stupidly small screen, "it doesn't need to be any bigger". And then when Apple dripfeed you incremental updates you think it's revolutionary

Back to my original question, what do you use it for?
Is this worth buying or wait for iphone 6?
Spend that much on a better Android phone with more features and a bigger screen. And Micro SD cards are cheap for memory expansion. I was an Apple Iphone mug once.

McDonalds, really that's your primary example (god forbid why anyone would eat there but never mind), that's one where else?

How did you come to a figure of 90%, assuming you've plucked it out of thin air

For the record, not everyone wants a bigger screen or an Android OS.

Can these deals not be measured on merit rather than criticising the phone or item in question?

Well you're right, but maybe refine your "people skills"
As an iphone user it does annoy me how Apple introduce stuff and, like you say, make it seem revolutionary. Like with the slow-mo video; my lg viewty ku990 did that and that's over 8y/o!
Having said that Apple do it better!

Hate to rain on is Parade - I am an avid android user. That said, I don't go round bashing Apple like some of the fools on here. Just wondered why NFC was a deal breaker - cant seem to get an answer though

I do find Apple's implementation of a technology to just seemingly work out of the box not just for tech savvy users but moms and dads etc too, two which come to mind are TouchID (have you tried to use the S5 fingerprint reader!) and another being slow mo video the latter which is easy to use and works well. Even my old Nokia had slow-mo video it just wasn't implemented very well IMO

This really is a prime example of moronic assumptions and commentary from people on HUKD.

You bestowed that little rant of wisdom based on one question - What do you use NFC for.

You still haven't answered me.

I don't really accept '90% of people in Mcdonalds pay using NFC' as a valid answer either.

I am a big Android fan, actually to be honest I love all things Tech. I don't use Apple as its not my preference, though I would not be running down their handsets on the ridiculous NFC comment. That doesn't make it rubbish or a reason to run someones deal down

I would agree. Again, not an Apple fan, but you cannot deny that their stuff 'works'

Why do you go out of your way to say this in every iPhone thread?

Insecure much?

I use both; Apple Phone, Android Tablet and see the pitfalls of both.
Obviously he's focussing on the NFC cos that looks to be on the new iphone 6, but in all honestly, I don't know anyone who uses NFC on a phone - maybe once a mate did as a gimic, but I shared the assumed opinion of the girl on the 'til - "What a geek - just pay normally like everyone else"

I bet most people don't even know what it is, apart from a massive battery drain!
NFC inclusion in the iPhone 6 will drive retailers to actually use the technology.


No they're not the first, but like it or not Apple will be the ones to get this technology off the ground and into shops.

It's my prediction, history repeating itself.

Apple are seldom the first to implement something, but when they do people actually use it. If it's in an iPhone then retailers will be more likely to take the leap to implement it in their shops.
