Trend shows that parents continue to buy older model iPhones for kids.

gazelle2015In the ever-changing – and ever-breaking – era of technology, phones are often the first to be replaced. Cracked screens, water damage and everyday wear and tear contribute to a constant need for new devices. But the average buyer isn’t the only offender; it’s children that need to be watched with their gadgets while learning the responsibility of owning a new electronic. For parents looking to fit their child with a first device, a new iPhone may not be the best choice – and for good reason.

Parents are now turning to certified pre-owned phones for their children’s gadget needs. Last month, Gazelle, the nation’s leading trade-in and buy site for electronics, found that 52% of mobile devices purchased on its online store were for kids or another family member, and 31% of customers were buying as a first device. Twenty-five percent of those who purchased also reported a lost, stolen or broken device as the main reason for replacing their device, making older phone models not only a cost-efficient solution, but also a practical one.

Cost continues to be one of the major reasons for purchasing a new iPhone or Android. And with kids at the helm, a certified pre-owned device is the perfect choice for any cost cognizant parent. At Gazelle, quality is not sacrificed for cost. Gazelle completes a rigorous 30-point inspection on each device, backed with a 30-day risk-free return policy. And for those looking for a newer iPhone model, Gazelle offers iPhones from the 4 all the way up to the new iPhone 6 Plus as well as Samsung Galaxy phones and iPads.

For a limited time, Gazelle has discounted the price of the certified pre-owned iPhone 4S, starting at just $129. Visit buy.gazelle.com today to take a look at our certified pre-owned iPhone inventory.
