AT&T cuts iPhone 4 refurb prices, now $99 with activation

Didn’t get that iPhone 4 you were so hoping to receive for Christmas? AT&T Wireless is offering up some new pricing on refurbished iPhone 4 units, and it is pretty spectacular. AT&T has cut $50 off the price of the iPhone 4, making the total price with new two year activation just $99 for a 16GB unit. If you’re alright with taking one with a “cosmetic blemish,” you’ll be able to snag one for just $79. Again, these are refurbished units (usually returned or exchanged items that have been quality tested and then reboxed), but if you have been waiting for the right time to hop on the iPhone train, this is one of the best offers we have seen. Here is all the new pricing from AT&T:

  • iPhone 4 16GB — $99
  • iPhone 4 32GB — $199
  • iPhone 4 16GB with cosmetic blemish — $79
  • iPhone 4 32GB with cosmetic blemish — $179

Let us know if you pick one up, alright?

iPhone madness: $49 and $149 for refurbs until Dec. 31

iPhone madness: $49 and $149 for refurbs until Dec. 31

If this isn’t AT&T trying to push the iPhone down your throat, we don’t know what is. First, refurbs were dropped to just $99 and $199 for 8GB and 16GB iPhones, respectively. And now the voice of Vito Corleone is ringing in our heads, “Make them an offer they can’t refuse…” From now until December 31, which is going to be here sooner than later, AT&T is taking an additional $50 off the refurbished iPhones. They must have a ton of refurbs in stock from the mad exchanges and returns from earlier this year. Oh, and one more thing to sweeten the deal (as if it wasn’t cavity-inducing enough): 2-day priority shipping is also free, an unusual offer during the holiday season. Is there really any excuse not to pick one of these up if you had been holding off on it? Hell, just go ahead and add a family line you don’t need!

UPDATE: RCR has updated their story and corrected it; refurb iPhones are at $99 and $199, folks!

AT&T wants a universal OS for its smartphones; Magic 8-ball says, outlook not so good

AT&T wants a universal OS for its smartphones; Magic 8-ball says, outlook not so good

The year was 2081, and everyone was finally equal… well, not really, but we might see some Harrison Bergeron-ing of smartphones in the AT&T lineup. How awful would that be? The boys in blue are anticipating that by 2014, a very large portion of sales will be comprised of smartphones. In an effort to simplify things and make it easier to get mobile applications onto all its handsets, AT&T is strongly considering a single operating system for all smartphones. Roger Smith, director of next generation services, spoke at the Symbian Partner Event in San Francisco and stated that Symbian is “a very credible and likely candidate” to be that singular OS. While Symbian is the largest OS in the world today, a move like this would surely frustrate Windows Mobile, Palm, BlackBerry and Mac OS X mobile fans, to say the least.
