  • Or should I just buy it new?

The cost to buy an SE in-contract is so low, it's probably best to just buy it new for ~$13/mo. Even out of contract, it starts at $400 for a new iPhone SE directly from .

If you want to be out of contract and buy a phone that will likely need repair (battery, etc), and/or if your kid destroys his/her things, buy a used iPhone 5S on eBay. At least you have some accountability there...

I would check eBay, Amazon and craigslist just to see what is out there. Going through Apple is a good idea as well.

They should have refurbished ones available.
