Bought a refurb 4 for my wife, couple years ago... Like typical Apple refurbs, it came in perfect condition. Kinda bummed we already bought 5's, because I'd have no problem doing this again.

Has this ever happened this fast?

There's no doubt in my mind this is due to the scratchability of the 5's and the over-abundance of swapped and now refurbished units.

No matter how desperate I am for a product, I'll never get a refurbished one.

Not bad. It'll be $0 on contract by next year though at this rate.

You can use Applercare+ with refurbished phones from ATT, but I wonder if you can exchange them when they come scratched (which really shouldn't be the case).
Maybe calling up ATT and ask them?

What's wrong with saving a little money on a refurbished product? It's not the same as buying used

Sounds good until you consider the $2400 you'll pay to be shackled to AT&T for 2 years.

You can save that and even more by not using any phone!

Why not stop eating too?

Big expense!

With a deal like that, why would anyone bother with a 4S?
