Walmarthas dropped its prices on the AT&T iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S. Without any notice, the price of the 8GB iPhone 4 on AT&T has dropped from $88 to $34. Also, the white and black 16GB flavor of the iPhone 4S on AT&T is now being offered for $114, down from the original $188 listing.
The new prices apply for AT&T upgrades and new activations. Last year the iPhone 4 dropped to $114 at Walmart in September — one month before the iPhone 4S was announced in October. Interestingly, the Verizon iPhone doesn’t seem to be included in this new Walmart sale. Walmart employees are usually notified a week in advance for promotions like this with flyers and such, but these price changes came totally unannounced.
AT&T has yet to clarify if this price drop is a national carrier promotion, or a change decided by Walmart. Retailers usually set the prices.
