Refurbished iPhone 5 lands at AT&T, starts at $100
Want to know how to get an AT&T iPhone 5 on the cheap? Then look no further than the carrier's online store, where Apple's latest smartphone is being offered in refurbished form. 

Each iPhone 5 variant is available for $100 less, meaning that a 16GB model can be bought for only $100, while the most capacitous variant, with 64GB of storage, sells for $300. That's with a 2-year contract with AT&T, of course. Both white and black models are currently in stock. The deal is available online only.

Now, as the case is with all refurbished AT&T phones, you only get a 90-day warranty and a 14-day window should you decide to return the handset you bought. Their quality, however, should be identical to that of a brand new device. Before being put up for sale, all units are tested thoroughly so they meet the company's quality standards

All AT&T deals on refurbished iPhone 5 are available at the link below.

Why is there already refurbished iPhone 5? 1st hand user not satisfied with it and decided to sell their iPhone 5 sooner?

A lot of the first wave phones had nicks/scuffs on the body especially the black ones. I myself returned a white one with a nick. I wouldn't be surprised if the return rate was over 10% but Apple would never tell. To have iPhone 5 refurbs at $100 when Apple can't keep up with new phone stock is pretty bad; especially after only 2 months on the market.

Even at the lowest price it's still $100 above what it's worth. Yes, that does mean AT&T should pay you that penny should you be forced or tricked into purchasing this abomination.

If the quality is identical, why is the warranty only 90 days ?

Of course. A lot of disappointed buyers made the right choice to make use of their buyer's-remorse. Great move people. No wonder Apple is meeting the 'iphone demand' now. Or should I say, 'non-demand'.

Refurbished iphone5's are available before people who originally purchased it the opening week get theirs. .. SHOCKING .. LMAO

No surprise here, with how many came out of the gate absolutely JACKED. Then they have the nerve to say the Android Galaxy series is flimsy plastic and garbage. ..
