The $99 iPhone 3G finally, kinda

It's not Wal-Mart Stores that has dropped the price into the double digits. It's AT&T, selling a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G for $99 through New Year's Eve.

Speculation that Wal-Mart Stores would sell a $99 iPhone was put to rest on Friday when the official announcement came out sans the double digits.

However, all hope is not lost.

AT&T is selling a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G in black for $99 with a two-year service contract through Wednesday, New Year's Eve. That beats AT&T's previous price tag of $149.

OK, OK, it's not new. But refurbished is close enough.

The refurbished 16GB model in black or white is also being sold for a $50 discount with a $199 price tag. But that doesn't have the magical ring to it of $99.
