As parents with younger children we have all been there, when can we have a phone? With Liam starting high school, this is something very much on my mind.

Whether as an emergency phone to stay in contact at before or after school activities, or if teenagers are simply at the age where they are begging for their first mobile device, starting tomorrow 18 January 2023, Boost Mobile are making it easy with a 2-in-1 bundle collating an affordable iPhone, with 12 months of connectivity starting at less than $400.


Boost Mobile Refurbished iPhones

Boost Mobile refurbished smartphones offer consumers great savings on near new devices. All refurbished phones sold through Boost Mobile go through a stringent 72 point check to ensure the device meets their high functional and cosmetic standards and come with 12 months warranty and a 30 day satisfaction guarantee.

The iPhone 8 features a 12MP back camera, 7MP selfie camera and a range of other smart features including fingerprint scanning and Siri smart assistant. The iPhone 8 has a glass back allowing for wireless charging and ‘True Tone’ technology to react to and edit the display’s colour balance depending on environmental light.

The iPhone SE takes these features yet another step further. While similar in terms of battery, storage, design and display, it has a more advanced processor (the A13 Bionic chip vs A11) for faster navigation and responsiveness. Additionally, while both iPhones have the same 12MP camera, the SE boasts additional features such as Portrait mode, Portrait Lighting, QuickTake video and Smart HDR.

The most advanced of the three options available as a bundle is the iPhone 11 which also has a much larger screen and comes in a wider array of colours such as purple and green. It features Dual back cameras for Ultra Wide shots and a TrueDepth front camera enabling Face ID biometric security. The iPhone 11 also differs in its larger battery (enabling 17 vs 13 hours of video playback) and is water resistant to 2m (vs 1m).

All phones are Australian compliant, unlocked, have been data-wiped and are cross-checked against a national police lost and stolen database. These phones also come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and 12-month warranty for additional peace of mind.
