When Apple first released the iPhone 2 summers ago, an 8GB model on the Edge network would have set you back $599. Now, an 8GB 3G model will cost you $99, and if that’s still a little bit too rich for your blood, then AT&T has you covered.
AT&T is now offering a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G model for only $79, which if you do the math, comes in at nearly 87% off the purchase price of the original iPhone. Throw in 3G connectivity, GPS, and the new iPhone OS 3.0 and you have yourself a great looking deal. Check it out over here at AT&T’s website.
And in case you’re new to the world of refurbished goods, here’s a blurb from AT&T:
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. For details about the warranty on your refurbished iPhone 3G go to www.apple.com/support/oss/.
