Apple poised to release the 8GB iPhone 3GS for $99?
The 8GB iPhone 3G model has been riding the wave of success for approximately over 18 months and has been graced with an attractive $99 price tag. With yet another iPhone model slated to be released sometime in June, Apple may be looking to move an 8GB iPhone 3GS model into the same price point. One new owner of a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G model paid close attention to the label that was placed on his box – he noticed that the packaged clearly indicates an 8GB iPhone 3GS. Unfortunately the refurbished iPhone he ordered was all he got out of the box. It can be assumed that it could all be a small typo on the label, but hopefully Apple may release some new information during their special event on January 26. Either that or actual new labels were accidentally mixed up with the older packaging. If the 8GB iPhone 3GS does come to fruition, its speculated $99 cost will make it extremely competitive – joining the ranks of some other well known $99 smartphone models available right now.

Who would want a refurbished iphone? No wonder why it’s so cheap...and you only get a 90 day warranty for it and can’t even get insurance for the device so after 90 days you’re out of luck what a waste of money...

Sooooo really what you should be saying is why get a refurbished phone at all, not necessarily just a refurbished iPhone. It's the same with any refurb, you trade price for warranty, there's always a trade off. Many people don't understand that phones returned within return policy are also sold as refurbished, so it's not necessarily a bad phone, just not fresh out of plastic.

very true! but you can get insurance for any device when you purchase it just not insurance for the iphone they don’t sell it so if a refurbished iphone breaks your out of luck. if you buy another phone refurbished you can still get insurance on it witch makes it better if something does happen to your phone.

The label is clearly a mistake as there has not been any 3GS devices shipped with iPhone 2.2
