Bell Selling ‘Refreshed’ iPhone 3G With Free Apple Dock

This week, Bell Mobility is attempting the almost impossible.

The Canadian wireless company has a new offer for a “refreshed” 8GB iPhone that is $9.95 and that comes with a free Apple Dock ($35 value) on a 3-year voice and data agreement.

The iPhone in question is the iPhone 3G.

This is obviously an attempt to get rid of almost obsolete inventory, but for those who just want a great communication tool, the iPhone 3G is pretty solid.

However, before jumping into this, keep in mind some of the terms.

The definition of “refreshed” as per Bell:

Get a gently used iPhone 3G at a great price. These unused or slightly used phones were returned to Bell within 30 days of the original purchase date and have passed rigorous quality assurance testing. The phones have been updated to current software and have been verified to operate in accordance with their specifications.

Also note that the refreshed iPhone 3G has the following warranty terms:

Each phone carries a 90-day warranty from your date of purchase. Actual warranty end date can be found at If you are not satisfied with the phone, you can return it within 30 days of your purchase.

As mentioned previously, the offer includes a free Apple iPhone 3G/3GS dock, which is valued at $35. However, the Bell activation fee is also $35. 🙂

So is a free dock and $9.95 ‘refreshed’ iPhone 3G tempting enough?
