If you’re looking for Apple’s iPhone 4 but don’t want to pay the full $200, you’re in luck. AT&T has just announced that they will now be offering refurbished iPhone 4s for just $99 with a 2-year contract for the 16GB. Quite evidently, this is $100 savings but if you’re looking to shave some dollars off your monthly bill this won’t help you as you’ll still be forced to sign up for a data plan.
The 32GB model will cost $199. If you don’t mind a cosmetic blemish on the device, a 16GB unit will run you just $79 or $179 for the 32GB unit. The phones must be purchased online and a 2 year contract needs to be signed. The device must be activated through AT&T at a cost of $36. Shipping, however, is free.
All of the refurbished Apple iPhones, whether the iPhone 4 down to the iPhone 3G, also require you to pay a monthly data charge of at least $15.
Even better, if you’re willing to deal with a “cosmetic blemish” you can get a 16GB iPhone 4 for just $79 with qualifying 2-year contract.
An AT&T rep says that Apple will honor what is left of each unit’s original 1 year warranty while AT&T has a separate 90 day warranty on each refurbished Apple iPhone.
