The $99 iPhone lives! (Through AT&T, not Wal-Mart)

If you’re not reaching, engaging, and monetizing customers on mobile, you’re likely losing them to someone else. Register now for the 8th annual MobileBeat, July 13-14, where the best and brightest will be exploring the latest strategies and tactics in the mobile space.

Some of you are likely upset that we now know for certain that Wal-Mart won’t be selling the iPhone for $99, and instead will give it a measly $2 discount when it goes on sale on Sunday. So I’m happy to report today that there is one outlet that’s started selling iPhones for $99 — perhaps you’ve even heard of it: AT&T.

Yes, AT&T’s website is listing refurbished 8 gigabyte iPhone 3Gs for only $99 after you sign a two-year contract. This is an extra $50 savings over what AT&T was previously selling the refurbished models for, but you better hurry — the sale ends on New Year’s Eve.

The site also lists refurbished 16GB iPhone 3Gs (in both black and white) for $199, the current regular price of the 8GB model. If you don’t mind getting a refurbished iPhone, these seem like awesome deals — certainly better than $2 off.
