Best Buy slashes the prices on AT&T iPhone 3GS to zero today
Best Buy is offering the AT&T iPhone 3GS for free with a new two-year contract agreement or an upgrade on Monday, August 22nd. The offer is only good for the 8 gig version of the handset in store in Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile.

The iPhone 3GS normally sells for $49.99 with activation, but this here promotion is set to clear the shelves, possibly ahead of an upcoming Apple devices like the iPhone 5. The iPhone 3GS is to be the oldest model supporting the fifth iteration of iOS.

The next-gen iPhone on the other hand is expected to arrive sometime between September and October with a dual-core A5 chip, a larger display and improved camera. The latest leaks point to a redesigned home button, but with employees over at AT&T reportedly preparing for an early October launch of the iPhone 5, it won’t be too long until we find out about all the details ourselves.

Good deal good deal, 3GS is a very good iPhone. Even better than most Android phones.

This only means the iPhone 5 is upon us soon. Good news. I want the rumors to be over...Just come out with the new phone so I can know the new features for certain!

This just means that best buy is tryin to sell more phones. Yes, it does help clear inventory of a 2-year old overhyped feature phone, but this is all about getting more sales and foot traffic into their stores, just like any other time they're selling phones for $0 with a contract
