Starting tomorrow, you can get your hands on the iPhone 3GS for $49 both at AT&T stores and on the carrier's Web site.
The iPhone 3GS, which was first made available in 2009, had its price slashed to $99 last year. Apple, which hasn't made any announcement about changing its price for the iPhone 3GS, is still selling the device on its Web site for $99. However, considering that AT&T is reducing the price of the smartphone, it would only make sense for Apple to do the same.
Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The iPhone 3GS lacks some of the refinements that consumers can find in the iPhone 4, such as a Retina Display, FaceTime video chatting, and an improved design. The iPhone 3GS does run iOS 4 and comes with either a black or white back plate, making it a fine alternative to the iPhone 4 for those who don't need the new features.
Only new customers willing to enter into a two-year contract or upgrade-eligible customers can take advantage of the reduced pricing.
