Massive iPhone 4S Sale at Walmart?
Where can you get a brand spankin' new iPhone 4S at a $74 discount? Try Walmart... at least, the Walmart in Edmond, Oklahoma. That's where the 16-gigabyte AT&T iPhone 4S is now selling for just $114 (with a new 2-year AT&T contract).
For now, to the best of our knowledge, this deal is available at just one other Walmart - the one in Austin, Texas. And it isn't available through Walmart's website either. So is this just a very local, two-store only promotion? Or might this move foreshadow a national discount opportunity unlike anything the iPhone 4S has seen to date?
As we all know, Walmart isn't the biggest player in the realm of iPhone sales, but the retailer remains a significant strategic business partner with Apple. And if the bricks-and-mortar giant rolls out a national campaign that delivers a $114 iPhone 4S, you can expect a massive influx of sales, especially since the iPhone 4 is now selling (and selling well) for just $99 or less in comparison.
We will keep you informed on other Walmart stores adopting the iPhone 4S discount should the sale turn up elsewhere in the coming hours or days.

You say the deal requires a new 2yr contract, does that possibly include upgrades and contract extensions?? Or do you have to be a new AT&T customer???

I see this as Apple trying to lower some stockpile on their iPhone 4S to get ready to introduce the 5 or whatever Apple is going to call it.

Hopefully some people managed to pick up the savings on this before the error was corrected...

When I read the title I thought they had turned the iPad into a phone - that would be a massive iPhone....He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
