AT&T drops iPhone 3G refurb pricing; $49/8GB, $99/16GB

AT&T has announced that it has dropped prices on its stock of refurbished iPhone 3G units. 8GB iPhone 3G units are now available for $49, while 16GB models—available in black or white—are priced at $99. According to a post on AT&T’s Facebook page, the units are available in stores while supplies last; as with new iPhone 3Gs, the refurbished units require a two-year contract, and AT&T notes that all refurbished iPhones carry a warranty of 90 days or more and may have “minor scratches.”

I just checked on this. One thing that should be noted is that the refurbished iphone’s will be taxed at the full retail price of the unit. The 8g has a $400 retail price and will taxed on that. So let buyer beware. The total amount will be higher than expected.

That’s crazy, even if they’re going to tax you on the retail price, wouldn’t it be $400 for a new iPhone 3g, not a refurbished one? The value shouldn’t be the same.

That is simply not true.  I ordered a refurb 8gb iPhone 3G for my wife and my total with tax was $54.

Hi Rob.
That’s great on purchasing the 8gig refurb. Where did you go to purchase the phone? Was it AT&T or another store? I’m still interested.

I bought it through the AT&T Wireless website.  The 2 day FedEx delivery was free and took exactly 2 business days.

Thank You for the information. I’ll be ordering one right now. This is so cool! I can finally get rid of my 2 year old 4gig iPhone.
