    Just wondering, I've been checking the Apple Store for a number of days now and I guess I'm just not lucky. Does Apple still post up Refurbished iPhones on the usual days (Tuesday/Friday or whatever)?

    I'm looking into purchasing one since I'm a big Apple Refurbished fan (bought tons from the refurbished department). Some insight would be nice, thanks a bunch!

    They are in and out from time to time. They do appear to sell out quick though.

    They haven't had iPods on the refurb store for at LEAST a month.

    You may need a website page checker that immediately informs you of any change to a page, and set it up for the refurb section. They're not all free (some do an email for the day, but you want to be told asap).

    8GB goes for $349.

    I bought one about two weeks ago.

    you can check your apple store. They sometimes carry refurbs/returns (open boxes) you have to ask about cause they don't advertise it.
    That's how i got my nano... pretty good deal... you can check it out before you buy

    If you have a friend in the northeast, ATT sells them for $249 in the retail stores. Not all stores have them. A friend of mine picked me up one about a month ago for $249 plus $9 to ship to me.

    I jailbroke it and put it on T-Mobile since we don't have ATT. The phone was pristine and it works great with T-Mobile.:p

    I guess there aren't many returns or broken iPhones being sent back to Apple as of late? Maybe that's a good thing. Hm, we might just have to settle for a new one then, refurbished hunters. =/
