    I need to buy an iPhone at full-price to keep my Unlimited data plan. It's pretty expensive so I was hoping to buy a refurb from Apple. I've heard great things about the quality of the Macbook refurbs so I figured a Refurb iPhone would be a good way to save some money. Does Apple sell Refurb iPhones at all? Have they ever? Thanks!

    Cool - thanks for info

    OP wants a 5 though - since he is talking about not losing his unlimited data - which is only a problem with at&t.

    You gave good advice. No particular model of iPhone was requested. :)

    I havent seen Apple sell refurb iphones for a long time and when they usually do its the old models that are about a year or more old
    Dont expect to find an iphone 5 any time soon.
    Maybe carriers will have them available but that will be months and months after the initial release.

    well 5 is the only phone that would cause him to lose his unlimited data by using the subsidized pricing
