AT&T Offers iPhone 3GS for Just $0.01… If You Don’t Mind The Warts

AT&T has just slashed $98.99 off the price of Apple’s iPhone 3GS allowing you to purchase the device for as little as one cent. There is a catch, however. A device that cheap will come with a few warts.

The device is one of AT&T’s refurbished handsets that suffer from cosmetic blemishes, and only come with a 90-day warranty and limited AppleCare:

Refurbished iPhone devices carry a limited warranty based on the original purchase date of the iPhone. The remaining coverage will be at least 90 days and will vary by device. If you purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone, your coverage duration will also be tied to the original purchase date of the iPhone and will vary by device.

Now there’s no reason not to own an iPhone, surely?

    Still iPhone 3GS for one cent is a nice deal even though its refurbished

    Sorry, never buy anything refurbished unless it was Apple that done the refurbishing and comes with that 1 year warranty.

    I bought one of these for my dad who’s been wanting an iPhone for awhile. The Cosmetic damage to his?

    It didn’t come in the black Apple box, but instead a orange AT&T box. Still had all the documentation, even the Apple Stickers… just a different box. Works perfectly fine and other than a single fingerprint on the back, there was no way to tell it wasn’t a brand new iPhone.

    Except the 2 year contract…

    But that’s more money to cancel your contract with :D

    Good for an entry level smartphone… for moms and dads alike.

    The usual idea is that you would use NFC to set up the link between the two devices and then do an automatic hand over to a different protocol for doing the actual transfer of data – eg Bluetooth,iphone 5
