Starting tomorrow January 7th you can get an iPhone 3GS for only $49 on AT&T. Of course it will require a new 2 year voice contract and at least a $15 per month data plan.  My question would be why would you want a 3GS when the iPhone 4 is out?!

AT&T* today announced a new price for the popular iPhone 3GS — $49.00 — available beginning tomorrow, Friday, January 7, for both new and upgrade-eligible existing AT&T customers. The offer will be available online at www.att.com/iphone, across more than 2,200 AT&T retail locations nationwide and through AT&T business channels, as well as Apple channels.**
