Telus starts selling “refreshed” iPhones too

Telus offers "Refreshed" iPhones

For those of you who want to join the iPhone army but have a hard time justifying (or affording) the full retail price, you now have a more affordable option to consider. We’ve seen the “refreshed” phones sold elsewhere already, but Telus is jumping into the game with some “refreshed” iPhones of their own.

As you may recall, Telus Mobility of Canada first launched the iPhone 3G and 3GS last November to coincide with the launch of its new network. I guess in the interim, they’ve been hit with the usual number of returns and warranty units, so now they’re sitting on some refurbs.

They don’t use the “refurbished” moniker, because these units aren’t technically refurbished by Apple or anyone else. Instead, the “refreshed” iPhones are “unused or lightly used iPhones, in like new condition.” They were “returned within 14 to 30 days from the date of purchase” and will be “available for a special price in limited quantities only on a 3 year term.”

So, how big is the discount? A basic “refreshed” 8GB iPhone 3G is $29, the iPhone 3GS 16GB is $149, and the refreshed iPhone 3GS 32GB is $249. Those are all with three-year contracts. If you’re worried about getting a lemon, you get a return policy of 30 days and a warranty period of 90 days with these refreshed iPhones. Check them out at Telus’ website.
