AT&T drops refurbished 8GB iPhone to $49!
At this rate, we may one day see AT&T offer an iPhone for free with a two year agreement. Instead we are now greeted with a price drop to $49 for a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G. Maybe Apple is really pushing out all the stops in attempting to get rid of the older models? Luckily the 16GB version is also reduced in price to $99 which isn't that bad of a deal as well and still available for purchase. Being competitively priced, consumers shopping around will really keep in mind the deal that's going on right now. On top of it all, buyers will also receive free two day priority shipping. You never know, it may even go down more if stock levels are not where they want it to be.

To bad that's not the no contract price of ANY phone, eh?

If you get the 16gb and pay the early termination fee it would be the same price as the 16gb ipod touch, but you would also have a built in camera.

Why would anyone really want a refurb phone on slightly older technology? Apple is just trying to get rid of their remaining inventory of the "old" 3G phone especially the low-capacity versions! Also, people will still get whacked by ATT's 2 year overpriced phone contract! Ouch! If you're gonna get whacked by such fees, at least get a NEW phone, 3G S!

I've never understood the hype behind the I Phone to begin with. I've gotten the chance to use several of them, and to me it's nothing more than a popularity contest. By the time you buy the latest one, it's outdated a month later. Who keeps the same one for two years?

That's because the original iPhone is still better than any phone out by any other carrier
