AT&T offers limited amount of refurb 8GB Apple iPhones for $99

“The $99 iPhone exists, though not in the mythical, miniature form the world might have fantasized about instead of sugar plums this Christmas. AT&T has lowered the price of its refurbished iPhones until the end of the year (December 31, for those keeping track) or until stock runs out, whichever comes first. The price has dropped by another $50, making the 8GB model a mere $99 and the 16GB models $199 (black and white),” Jacqui Cheng reports for Ars Techinica.

“These prices still require you to sign up for a new two-year contract with AT&T,” Cheng reports.

  1. That’s great and all, but I would rather Apple and ATnT raise the price by $100 and throw up a tower or two in my area so that I could partake.

    I love my touch, but every time I leave the comfy confines of my office or home, I’m reminded of the limits of wi-fi.

    Please, oh please, invest more in your infrastructure!!!!!!!!

  2. Thanks for the reminder me…

    I just went on-line and got myself one of those 16 GB refurbished iPhones from AT&T;… should be in my hands by new years!

    Nice way to start off the new year with my very own iPhone!

    2009 is going to be a good year after all!

  3. You know, with all of these cheaper iPhones being offered, I’m wondering if they’re dumping these devices for an upcoming next generation iPhone that is due to be released in a few months. What do you think?

  4. Where are the cheaper phones? (other than this refurb)

    And I might add; yes you can get a refurb for $100 less. Nice, but that isn’t really a huge discount. Including taxes iPhone service on AT&T;is nearly $80 each month.
    If a $100 initial purchase price makes a big difference in you buying decision you need to understand how big a commitment a 2 year service plan is for a smart-phone.

    If you were talking a $100 discount for a refurb iPod touch, then I would agree, that would be a really big deal.

    So no this does not signal clearing inventory ahead of a new model release (though given apple’s innovation level, I would expect a new model by at least late summer or fall (possibly before)
