Bell Offers “Refreshed” iPhone 3G For $9.95

Share:

If you like low prices, don’t mind contracts, and don’t really care for having the latest tech, then this deal from Bell may be for you.

Through their Family and Friends program, Bell is offering a “refreshed” iPhone 3G for $9.95 on a 3-year agreement with a minimum $50 per month smartphone plan. The promotion expires June 30, 2010.

For those wondering what the definition of “refreshed” is, Bell defines it as follows (emphasis added by yours truly):

Refreshed phones are phones returned to Bell in an unused or slightly used condition and that have passed rigorous Quality Assurance testing. Phones have been updated to current software and are verified to operate in accordance with their specifications. Some phones have minor cosmetic scratches that do not impact proper operation. Each phone carries a 90-day warranty from the date of purchase.

Before jumping into this, remember that Apple just announced a new iPhone, due July 2010. The iPhone 3G came out in July 2008 and the Bell offer is not for a new iPhone 3G either.

Telus is also offering “refreshed” iPhones at a low price, which they announced back at the end of March 2010.

    What a joke. Whom ever buys this plan must have their head examined and check themself into the hospital and have an MRI examine their head. Thank god I don't use Bell and I never will.

    They want you to spend money on buying the USED phone that is so out of date. “passed rigorous Quality Assurance testing” (LMAO) and still sign on to 3 year commit for over $50 a month. Bell you are a joke and always will be.

    a 3-year agreement with a minimum $50 per month smartphone plan….? lol

    Meh, I don't see how horrible this is. The iPhone 3G is still a quite capable phone for someone just entering the world of smartphones. Or even an old grandparent that doesn't need the latest and greatest phone. Can't go wrong for $10.

  • I find it very interesting they are putting it out there that your iPhone will have some cosmetic scratches on it. This will entice some people but it's definitely the wrong choice in my books. Spend $90 more for a brand new 3GS!

  • Joker Eh

    Because I have a 3G and its slow now, it bogs down with the latest OS update. And because you are paying over $50 a month for 3 years for out of date device. Now if they charged $10 for the 3GS that might be different and they may get new customers from it. But they won't.

    A sluggish phone on the WORST network in the world. NO THANKS!!!!!

    “passed rigorous Quality Assurance testing”.

    I've worked retail. It's simply “put it back on the shelf once the customer leaves.” lol!

    Both my parents are locked on to Bell 3 years. They are half way thought the term. This is something my Dad jumped in to without asking me first ( the Tech guy of the family ) They are Both Regretting it.
    They have to Exit the house, Walk about 30 feet away from the house to get 3 bars of reception to make a clear phone call. Im not even hyping it up. its hard to believe but they also seem worse then telus.
    i know they use the same Network but still lol

    that being said, seeing it with my own eyes. i would turn down a FREE iphone if it was from bell.
    P.S: i have a Telus phone aside from my rogers iphone, i cant make calls inside either very well

  • Wow…that sounds pretty bad. But I am with ya on dads going out and making impulse tech decisions. My dad went out and signed onto a 3 year contract with Solo for some crappy flip phone…when I clearly told him I was going to let him use my iPhone 2G.

  • The iPhone 3G is seems like the slowest phone in the world after using the iPhone 3GS. For 3G owners who have never used a 3GS, it's like night and day.

  • Xaroc

    Them too. Family plan, 3 years on each phone. They got cheesy lg flip phones. No mp3 player option or anything. Lol

  • Or buying MacBook Pros on a whim.
