Walmart Lists iPhone 4 For $147 On-Contract

We’re just moments away from Apple’s WWDC event, where we usually get to hear about Apple’s latest model of the iPhone. This time around, Apple has promised we won’t get a peak at any new hardware, so perhaps to cheer up all those Apple fanbois out there, Walmart is putting the iPhone 4 on sale for $147.

You read right, a brand new iPhone 4 in either white or black will cost just $147 from Walmart with a new or renewed two-year agreement. The sale lasts from June 6 to June 30. Here’s the email from Walmart’s PR team:

Hi Matt,

Walmart today announced a price reduction on the iPhone 4 which will be available for $147 today, June 6 through June 30 at select stores.

These savings apply to both the AT&T and Verizon versions of the iPhone 4 in both black and white colors. Pricing requires a new two-year wireless and data agreement or qualified upgrade.

Please let us know if you are interested in covering this announcement. We look forward to hearing from you!


Walmart’s site has yet to catch up to Claire, and the rest of the PR team, with all versions of the iPhone 4 listed as out of stock, with a price tag of $197. There’s no telling what this means in the way of forthcoming Apple products, but I guess it can’t hurt to hope against hope that Walmart’s price cuts have something to do with the next-gen iPhone, right?
