AT&T offering refurb iPhone 3G for $149.99 and $249.99
AT&T is offering refurbished units of the iPhone 3G online just like they did with the original iPhone. Pricing is set at $149.99 for the 8Gb and $249.99 for the 16GB.

Per AT&T, the units are customer returns that were tested and updated to the latest software. There is also a possibility of minor scratches. A 2-year contract and the iPhone data plan are required.

What do you think, will a $50 difference make you buy a new one or a refurbished one?

I think the amount of Apple coverage on this site is pretty proposterous. I can see this article being somewhat relevant , but when Sprint or T Mobile starts selling refurbed Instincts or Google Phones you dont see anything about it, when Verizon launches their ESPN MVP app on their top selling Dare handset we see nothing, but anytime something transpires that involves the Apple device it is news here. I am not bashing the Apple phone or hating, but I wish these guys here would be more open to other awesome handsets and smartphones that are making huge strides and offering new and innovative apps to their customers. Be more open to delivering ALL the news out there and not just about a device everyone is growing tired of reading about. Most of the apps being discussed for this device have been out on other networks or other handsets for quite some time now.

I agree. Right now there are three stories on the main page. All of them are pretty much throw ins. Two are about new apps and then this one. We want interesting stories, not iphone commercials!

The Godfather said it right. Absolutely think the iphone is great, but come on, broaden the scope of your news stories a bit.

Would anyone really go for a potentially scuffed refurb with a warranty shrunk down from a year to 90 days just to save $50?
