    My favorite posts have been the sellers that are waiting for the v2 and they've sold their iPhones and are using $10 AT&T Go Phones! LOL I almost put myself in that situation. Refurbs=Good for those sellers waiting for v2? :eek::D:p

    Last week? I looked last week and didn't see it. Oh well, at least I got one. I probably got one because people are waiting for the 3 g, but since I don't get 3 g in my area it doesn't matter.
    The closest place is over 100 miles for 3g. So it isn't any skin off of my teeth if I don't get the 3g phone. Just as long as I can get onto the internet with wifi i will be good to go.

    Have you tried letting someone else get it for you?

    AT&T's policy website on grace period for service:

    http://www.wireless.att.com/learn/articles-resources/consumer-code.jsp

    I would hope this applies to all "returns" as part of the trial period of new service. (Considering that you did not unlock or jailbreak). :cool:

    Thanks ^^^^. I also found out if you buy a refurb online, you can online return it by doing it over the phone.

    I'm interested in buying one, but I don't want to activate it with AT&T. How do I go about doing that? Can I buy one and then just unlock it?

    [UPDATE] Can I buy a refurb from AT&T, unlock, and sell it on eBay? Am I obligated to ATT for my purchase?

    No, you're not obligated. If you want to unlock, search about on the forums here or google iliberty or pwnage tool.

    I know my idea doesn't help those of you wanting an iPhone for yourself, but...

    So I could by an iPhone, and my wife could as well...

    leaving me with two iPhones to sell on eBay?

    I think there was something about one per household somewhere. I ended up with two through a credit card snafu (eventually I was charged for both, but, hey, I'm thinking along hondje's lines).

    I am pretty happy they did this again! I missed it last time, not knowing they would be gone within hours. I finally got a 16 GB iPhone from this deal. Waiting for 3G was not a big deal since it is not offered nearby.

    They're back. I got on the last deal and got my phone on Monday. This is a good deal, but rumors are that the 2ng gen iPhone will sell for $199.99.

    Lotta people were bummed they missed it last week - I'm happy to see everybody get another shot (why pay full price and get roped into a contract?!?!?).

    I honestly seriously doubt that it will be that cheap. Sounds good, but unlikely. I could see MAYBE $299, but even that's low for Apple standards.
