With activation of new voice and data plans, AT&T Wireless offers the refurbished Apple iPhone 3GS 8GB Smartphone for AT&T Wireless in Black for $9. (Search for “iPhone refurb” to find it.) With free shipping, that’s $41 below the lowest total price we could find for a new unit, although we briefly saw a new one for free two weeks ago (since expired). Sales tax is added where applicable. It features compatibility with AT&T’s 3G network, built-in GPS navigation with Google Maps, enhanced enterprise support, a 3.5″ touchscreen, at least five hours of talk time, and more.
Note: A 90-day warranty applies, although it’s unclear who supports it. Also, there’s a $36 activation fee.
