If the iPhone 4 is at the top of the list, but the price tag is simply too much for you to handle… You’re certainly not alone. The up-front cost of a new device is always an issue… however, there are things you can do to get around this. One tactic, for example, is to pick up an older, refurbished device.
Bell has had a refreshed/refurbished iPhone 3G offer on for some time now. It’s a win/win really. For $9.95 on a 3-year term, you get the ‘gently used’ iPhone 3G, and Bell clears out old stock. Everybody wins!
Just the other day Bell updated this offer. Now, not only will you get the 3G, but you’ll get a free Apple dock for the device as well. Not bad. $9.95 for an iPhone 3G and dock. Here’s the official description of the offer:
Get a gently used iPhone 3G at a great price. These unused or slightly used phones were returned to Bell within 30 days of the original purchase date and have passed rigorous quality assurance testing. The phones have been updated to current software and have been verified to operate in accordance with their specifications.
If you’re concerned about refurbs, I can’t blame you. It’s a personal choice. Out of experience I can tell you I’ve never had an issue with a refurb, but that’s just me. If the price is right, and you really want one… I say hop on and give ‘er.

Note: The headset is not included in the box on this offer. Guess Bell didn’t want to take the chance of re-packing earbuds coated with some strangers’ ear candy. Gross. No worries though. Just plug in your own headset.
