    Get an iPhone 3G for $49

    Advertisement



    The units selling at this price are not brand new -- they have been refurbished. AT&T says: Refurbished phones are previously owned devices that have been unused or lightly used and returned during the 30-day trial period. Each refurbished phone is independently quality tested and loaded with the latest software to meet current factory standards. Some refurbished iPhone 3G devices will have minor scratches. Refurbished iPhone 3G devices carry a warranty of 90 days or more.

    Just so people know, I got my iphone via ATT and it was a refurb. You'd never know it was used before though as they include everything you need, and it still works as new. It's a great way to get an iphone and save money. If you're worried about it breaking you can still buy apples extra protection plan for $40. Don't be afraid of 'refurbs'... they're really great deals.

    Will they honor this in store as well?

    ***EDIT:

    Refurb prices only good online.

    Any chance of getting a refurb without a 2 year contract from AT&T? Not that I really want one but they catch a good price on ebay...

    That's actually a huge problem -- exactly what you said is what people do: they get refurb. phones, then break out of a contract the "Free & Legal" way (if you don't know about this, see bellow***), and then sell them on eBay as "NEW, unlocked, out of contract" for ~ $400 -- thus making a ~$350 instant profit.


    ***(call your local provider and tell them you are moving to an area which they do no cover. They are by law required to let you go, however, you do not get to keep your phone #)
