Refurbished, two-year old iPhone 3GS hits a new low price point

Our friends over at Hot Hardware noticed that AT&T is now selling the refurbished iPhone 3GS 8GB for a measly $9 with a new two-year contract. For those of you looking to score a decent smartphone at a low price, the iPhone 3GS is nice pick if you just have to stay in the Apple family. 

However, keep in mind a couple of points: 

  1. AT&T is limiting customers to five of the $9 iPhone 3GS smartphones per household
  2. The iPhone 3GS is over two years old, which is quite elderly in the realm of smartphones
  3. Retailers like Amazon offer some great pricing on new Android, Windows Phone 7, and webOS  smartphones (starting at a penny) with new contracts
  4. While it's nice to get a smartphone for a low, low entry price, you should really be looking at the cost of the minutes/data plan over the course of the two-year contract as well 

If you'd like to pick up a refurbished iPhone 3GS, you can head on over to AT&T's website right here. For those looking for a sightly newer model, the refurbished 16GB iPhone 4 can be had for $99 on AT&T's website.

Access to flash player

So when is apple gonna let us iphone/ipad users have access to the flash player. That many websites endgames require now. I have very little access to a Pc and pretty much use my iPhone for everything. And think this would boost the sales of apple products if they did!!! Sorry this is not on this subject but the blog I wanted to post on was closed for comments. And I just joined daily tech. Also have written many emails and comments to apple with no response to this subject!!
