Best Buy, the first big retailer to stock the iPhone, is offering its customers another service: The opportunity to purchase a refurbished iPhone at a discount price. The phones, all of which were returned less than 30 days after they were originally purchased, will cost $50 less than new iPhones. That's $149 for an 8 gig iPhone and $249 for the 16 gig version.
As you might expect from Apple, a two year, AT&T service contract is required, just like it is with new iPhones.
Ever buy anything refurbed? I have, and I've had mixed results. The refurbed stereo receiver works perfectly, but the used fireworks were less than spectacular. So if I do get a used iPhone, you'd better believe I'm jacking it from some lady's purse, amiright? High Five!
