AT&T may be planning to offer refurbished iPhone 3G units via its website, according to a new report. PhoneNews claims the company has notified select third parties that the phones would be sold as refurbished units on its web site, although it does not claim to know for certain whether these phones would be of the original or 3G variety. AT&T previously offered refurbished first-generation iPhones via its website, however, the original iPhone did not require in-store activation, as Apple and AT&T have mandated for all iPhone 3G sales up to this point.
