    Default AT&T Begins Selling Refurbished iPhone 5 Units for $100 Less


    If you want to save some money on an iPhone 5 by paying $100 less than you usually would, then buying refurbished instead of new is an option. AT&T is just beginning to offer refurbished versions of the iPhone 5 starting at $99 for the 16GB model and working its way up: $199 for 32GB and $299 for 64GB.

    With the iPhone 5 being so new, chances are that any refurbished unit is going to be in great operating condition. That being said, it should work like new and should look like new too. It could be worth looking into one if you have to do some family shopping for the holidays, since it would save you a lot of money in the long run if you were to buy more than one.

    The refurbished iPhone 5 units are only available from AT&T online, however they are available in every storage size and in every color. You will also have to sign a two-year contract with AT&T to get the iPhone 5 at this price, however the shipping is free.

    You can access all of AT&T's refurbished iPhone 5 choices from this link.

    AT&T also sells refurbished iPhone 4S units starting at 99 each. The iPhone 4S is still a perfectly capable iOS device, although lacking LTE, and could also be a great option as a gift this holiday season.

    EDIT: The price of the refurbished iPhone 5 has been increased to $149 for the 16GB model, $249 for the 32GB model, and $349 for the 64GB model.

    I just ordered an iPhone 5. Pretty big disclaimer in the confirmation email about the order being on hold until "all units are received", I'm hoping that doesn't mean I have to wait for long. Thanks!

    I just bought one as well and I got the same thing my card hasn't been charged as well. I wonder if we'll have to wait 2-3 weeks to get them.

    I bought my first iPhone3G as a refurb, worked perfectly until iOS4 came out. This deal would be a bit sweeter if there was a jailbreak for the 5.

    We still have a VEEERY long wait for that my friend. Devs haven't even shown a real JB on their own ip5s yet let alone getting something ready for public. This is going to be the longest wait of any JB to date and indicative of future OS JB problems. Apple's just getting too good with their code AND hiring our devs for salaries they can't refuse...
    Here to help if I can. If I can't I know someone who can!

    Did you buy from Apple or AT&T?

    From Apple, you'd have that 30 day privilege to return. From AT&T, you would only have 14 days to return.

    But that's why I'M staying on 5.1.1 Jailbroken...

    But those of us on 5.1.1 staying put until there's an iOS 6 jailbreak don't want to get caught with an ip5 with too NEW a version of 6.x.x.. So we should buy an iP5 pretty soon (before 6.1 comes out) with 6.0.1 on it and then shelve that bad boy until the jailbreak comes out. That's what I'm gonna do soon.

    Its not that Apple hired them at a price that they could not refuse, they could probably make more money in donations from jailbreaks, let alone charging people for their exploits if they really wanted to. I think what you meant is that Apple presented him(comex) with an opportunity he couldnt refuse. And yes, thats probably the reason that they are having such a hard time to get a stable jailbreak out there. But they do have it jailbroken, I will also remind you that the 4S jailbreak wasnt released until Christmas time, so this time last year everybody was still waiting on a jailbreak.

    I don't know where you got the 99 dollar price tag from, it's $149 for the black, and the white both in 16GB, which is typical of Apple's refurb's being 50 bucks cheaper. So, this is slightly misleading.
