As we suspected, the iPhone 3GS has gone on sale at Best Buy for the low price of free. Now, I own an iPhone 3GS and I’ve loved it for the past two years but let me be very frank with those of you who might be tempted by this offer.
Unless you’re absolutely desperate, there is no reason to take advantage of this offer. You’re going to be getting a phone that is old news and the offer is only available with the signing of a new two year contract which means it will be four years old when everything is said and done.
Not worth it. Not with all of the new phones that are going to be coming out in the next couple of months. A list that has a new iPhone penciled in along with the Motorola Droid Bionic and the Google Nexus Prime.
The iPhone 3GS is a great phone but you’ll want something better over the next two years. Trust me.
Now, if I can’t convince you, you can find Best Buy’s offer for the 3GS right here. It’ll only run you $0 but it will cost you a lot more than that in the long run.
Hair, headaches and quite possibly, some money.
