Summary: When I bought this item in October it was to be a Christmas present and it was noted as such on my account. It was fully charged by me before giving it to my grandson but in less than 1/2 hour after receiving it the battery was dead and it wont hold a charge so I will warn everyone I know not to buy from this company. I should mention that I bought it that far in advance to be assured it would not be sold out.
Ships like new, but note that newer apps will not work due to old OS

Summary: Great product - and shipped like new - in box and with headphones and everything. It was a gift for a pre-teen, and it fits the bill for watching videos, listening to music, messaging and checking emails within your wi-fi, and google hangouts (which is great for family far away). BUT - if the recipient is app-savvy, note that the operating system only is good for apps up to OS6.
Summary: This refurb was just like new, I can't fault it at all. It's the 4th Gen, so not up to par with the latest camera, etc that available in the new iPhones, but this was purchased for a 12 year old and he loves taking photos and videos with it, playing music and watching videos off YouTube. Of course it is a gateway device for the iPhone, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter for Christmas. She used it for 1 day before the screen went black. I will Never buy refurbished again!!! Pay the extra money for new to avoid getting someone else's trash.
