    Refurb iPhones: 8gb ($99) & 16gb ($149)

    Advertisement





    I've been shopping for an iPhone for quite some time now. Last summer when the 3g version came out, I would have bought one but my local stores were all sold out. When my Curve died, I tried (without success) to early upgrade my line to an iPhone but ATT wasn't having it, so home I went with a Bold. While I am completely satisfied with my Bold, I still have that secret (well not secret really ) yearning to jump on the Apple sailboat

    My SO and I had made a deal when the Bold came home ... once the his line was eligible for an upgrade, I'd buy the iPhone and give him the Bold. Well, as I was shopping this weekend on the ATT site, I noticed this ... If you are a new customer, or an existing with an eligible upgrade, the price for the iPhone 3g REFURB (in white too!!) has been dropped. I'm not sure how long the price will stay this low, so if you are thinking about adding to your Smartphone family, nows the time to do it!

    I was and am not a touch screen fan. I heard its that easy to crash ipod touch from your podcast you sure you want to be without your phone if you switch to an Apple product. I have been a blackberry fan for some time now. I had a corporate blackberry which was just the pager style blackberry. I loved that thing back in 2001 or 2002 and have stayed the path of blackberry's ever since. Not planning on jumping ship. Apple is still working out the kinks with their IPHONE atleast blackberry has come out with a list of different phones. Apple is still trying to soothe the hearts of all the people complaining that 3G is not working on the AT&T network in all the areas they claim to be working. I can't completely dump on Apple since the Storm has had its glitches but RIM is good coming out every month with leaked updates to have users test and create forums to get a feel of what's working or not with new builds. I believe these are not leaks but a way to get the public to test an OS without saying they need help. My wish is that they make the touch screen version of the Bold with a better camera. I'll happily get the next phone if that happens. I keep mentioning this everywhere hopefully someone at RIM will listen and get it right. Well till next time.

    Wow, I've been thinking the same here to cherri. I bought my daughter an Ipod touch and played with it and been dying to get an iphone ever since. I can see it probably happening in the next 2 weeks. I'm not due for an upgrade until november but I'm not going to wait that long. So I'll be shelling out an extra 100 bucks either way and I don't mind.

    The only thing that's stopping me from jumping ship at the moment is the fact that they don't have a free GPS app (voice activated) like I have for my curve with AmazeGPS. They get a free voice activated gps and I'm all over one of them
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?

    I'll also admit that I've also been seriously eyeballing an iPhone, my wife just got an iPod touch and at the very least its a fun toy.

    I'll do my best to hold out though, I know I'd regret ditching my Bold after a week or two.

    Just to let you all know, this isn't a sale or anything. The refurbs have been this price for a while now (well at least 6 months) and probably aren't changing. I got one of the 8gig refurbs a while back and love it. It works perfectly and came with everything it should have. It's definitely a deal to take advantage of, but it probably will remain at that price for a while so you don't have to decide immediately.

    Tempting, but the 3rd iteration of the iPhone is right around the corner. My iPod touch will quell my temptations until then..

    Very true!! If I do wanna make the jump I would much rather wait for the next iphone because is like me upgrading to the bold now when AT&T will more than likely get a new bb be it the curve2 or niagara or whatever the next one's called in a matter of 3 months or so. Why waste my upgrade. I understand that no contract is needed but anyone can see this is just a way to stick it to us by getting us into buying out their stock before they release their new device. But hey I'm not mad at you Apple...business is business .

    So, yeah...I'll hold out till the next gen iphone in hopefully June or July for my B-Day so I can finally make the iphone my first touchscreen phone. I'm not even gonna bother with the storm sad but true

    I still have my upgrade available. I want to wait for the curve or whatever to come out, but I may just have up upgrade now. I am a little Leary about waiting now because of how long we had to wait, for the bold. Who knows when AT&T will actually release the new Blackberries. Oh yeah.. I am suppressing my urge to get an IPhone.
