Refurb $99 iPhones go on sale from AT&T $99 USD Apple iPhones are finally a reality, but not from Wal-Mart as many anticipated.
American iPhone exclusive carrier AT&T has begun selling refurbished 8GB iPhones for $99 and 16GB for $199 USD. At Wal-Mart, the 8GB model sells for $2 less than MSRP, at $197.

The refurbished iPhones will remain on sale until the end of the year or until supply runs out, whatever occurs first, added the carrier.

In terms of quality, the "iPhones were either unused or lightly used and were returned during their 30-day trial period. The phones may have minor scratches but otherwise are in great condition."

to bad you cant just buy the phone for 99 by itself though. i have cingular, but do not need the stupid data package and dont feel like spending the 200+ on ebay for one.

The data package is only $40 dollars for unlimited internet. However, they do get you in that the package no longer has texting included, you need to get that as a whole other package. I can't complain really.

the data package needs to be optional as i do not want/need it. i just want the darn phone, lol.

Question is are these the 3G iPhones or the original iPhones that they're selling? The article doesn't state.

Thats ridiculous, you might aswel get a brand new one paying that amount and STILL with a 2 year contract.

Oh yeah and that no text in any plan at all is bullshit. Atleast give like 100 free, talk about bleeding your customers dry.
