AT&T Drops Price Of Refurbished iPhone To $49

AT&T used its Twitter page to let us know that it has dropped the price on the refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G to just $49, while supplies last. The Twitter posting suggests visiting to order. The $49 price tag is half the price of an unopened 8GB model.

If you’re looking for a 3G capable iPhone and don’t need the faster specs and better camera of the new iPhone 3GS, this could be a good deal. Of course, you’ll still be required to sign up for a two-year contract.

AT&T’s site tells us a bit more about refurbished phones:

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
