Have some holiday cash in your pocket? Want to pick up an iPhone but the price is still a little too much for ya? Looks like AT&T might have an awesome solution for the problem.
Latest out of MacRumors is that AT&T are now selling refurbished iPhone 3G’s from only $99. The offer is (apparently) available for a limited time only… So if you want one I suggest you act soon. Personally, I’ve never had an issue with any Apple ‘refurbished’ hardware. The price sounds right here, so as long as you don’t mind a few minor flaws in the casing, or knowing that the device was once owned by someone else… you should be good to go.
Again, I wouldn’t be too concerned about the whole refurbished deal. Sure, there’s a chance something could go wrong… but perhaps the official verbiage from AT&T will help calm those waters:
Refurbished Phones and Devices
Refurbished phones are previously owned devices that have been unused or lightly used and returned during the 30-day trial period. Each refurbished phone is independently quality tested and loaded with the latest software to meet current factory standards. Some refurbished iPhone 3G devices will have minor scratches.
Refurbished iPhone 3G devices carry a warranty of 90 days or more. For details about the warranty on your refurbished iPhone 3G go to www.apple.com/support/oss/.
If you want one… Better go snap one up now!
