Those looking for an off-contract deal on fairly recent phones have a treat today: the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 and Galaxy S4 are available in refurbished condition on eBay for $320 (Note 3) and $220 (S4) with free shipping. They are Verizon devices, but are unlocked and technically able to pick up 3G from GSM carriers, according to the seller.

The white and black versions of each phone are available. The blue S4 is out of stock. Be aware that these are seller refurbished, which means Samsung has had no hand in deciding whether they are fit for resale. The item descriptions say to expect some cosmetic signs of use. The seller is well-established, though, and is offering 30-day returns. The Note 3 is only available with 32GB of storage and the S4 with 16GB. Each can have increased space with microSD cards, though.

Both are last-generation devices, but are still fully capable and being kept up to date by Samsung. You can check out our reviews of the Note 3 and S4. If you need a phone without a contract and don't want to pay for an expensive, current flagship, these might be good choices.
