AT&T Inc. will start selling the previous-generation iPhone -- the iPhone 3GS -- for $49 starting Friday to customers who buy the smart phone with a two-year service contract and data plan.
The wireless company, which is the exclusive U.S. carrier for the iPhone, made the announcement Thursday. AT&T said it will include iPhone 3GS devices sold through AT&T and Apple.
