I went to the website and they are selling refurbs for $249
It says that it requires a 2 year agreement, but it comes to you inactive and says to activate with itunes.


does this mean i can order one from them, and then unlock it and not have to worry about doing the 2 year agreement?

I'm thinking about ordering it right now.

I'm picking up 2 one for a spare
and one to unlock for ebay.

***EDIT***
I decided to hold off on these to see some reports of the condition these are.
I found out that these iPhones being sold at the stores and the website, are being refurbished by at&t and NOT apple. So the condition may not be the same.
They are coming with the same warranty however.

also, i'm a current at&t customer so would it be possible to use the iphone without signing a new two year contract or adding a data plan? would it be possible to just jailbreak it and use my current sim card?

Yes, you can jailbreak it and use it on your currant AT&T plan.

I ordered mine yesterday and noticed last night the they already charged me for it. My brother ordered one too.

I will post pics when I get them in. the email i got said it would be here in 3-5 buisness days.

also, why would at&t sell refurbs for $250 when apple sells them for $350? i guess it may be because it is at&t refurbing them instead of apple. i dont know.

at&t still haven't charged me for mine but I got an order confirmation, and I ordered it around 4pm PST. I don't know if I should be worried or not. I guess I should wait until the end of the day before I start to panic. :/

Anyway, if you notice on Apple's website, they are listing the original price of the iPhone as $599.99 on their refurb page. That is probably the reason why it's only $350. A little messed up, non?

looks like the deal died out sometime last night as it is no longer available on the at&t site.

I ordered mine a little after lunch on tuesday and today (wednesday) i got a tracking number. looks like it's going to be picked up tomorrow from them by dhl. but i'm hoping to get it by friday since it says that it is shipping from the same city i am in.

I ended up canceling my order seeing how it was back-ordered. The customer service rep then told me to wait a couple months -- like June -- to buy my iPhone because they are updating it. I don't think I can wait. Hahaha.

The price is expansive to a 2years contract... Maybe US$99... US$249 to a ref. phone and 2years contract, never!!!
