iPhone 3GS Price on AT&T Drops to $50 from Tomorrow

January 6, 2011, By Alex Ion

Folks from the US interested in purchasing one of Apple’s smartphones, who wouldn’t spend too much for one, should know that AT&T is going to reduce the price for the iPhone 3GS model to only $50.

The new deal which will see the iPhone 3GS selling at the same prices as bulky BlackBerry’s or other lower end mobiles,  is going to be available starting tomorrow. And by the looks of it, it’s going to rock. So I guess a big congratulations to AT&T is needed considering that it’s  the carrier’s decision to make the iPhone cheaper and has nothing to do with Apple.

What that means is that both new and upgrade-eligible existing AT&T customers who’d like to grab the 3GS at $50, should go to an AT&T store or online at www.att.com/iphone,  instead of a paying a visit to the Apple Store.

“We want to deliver the best, most complete package for our customers — from price, to speed, to worldwide access and more,” said David Christopher, chief marketing officer of AT&T Mobility and Consumer Markets. “Combined with our new, lower monthly data plans beginning at just $15 a month, this new price brings even more value to one of the most popular devices in our leading lineup of smartphones. We’re very excited for more people to experience iPhone on the nation’s fastest mobile broadband network.”

Now that sounds like a great deal to me … but be advises, there might be a Verizon iPhone in the works, so better think twice before you rush out with your money.

What do you guys think about this move?

Note: It “requires new 2-year wireless voice agmt of $39.99 or higher with min $15/mo plan”
