AT&T Airs New Ad Pushing $49 iPhone 3GS

In yet another attempt to differentiate its own iPhone offerings from those of Verizon, AT&T has begun airing a new television commercial promoting the 8 GB iPhone 3GS and its recently-lowered $49 price tag.

The iPhone 3GS from AT&T. The phone that changed everything. But think about it - how can you make one of the most amazing phones the world has ever seen more amazing? Make it $49. Yep, that'll work. The iPhone 3GS. Now at a price that changes everything too. In the network, amazing is affordable. AT&T. Rethink possible.

Verizon of course only offers the iPhone 4 in 16 GB and 32 GB capacities, with prices beginning at $199 with a two-year contract. AT&T offers the same prices on the iPhone 4, but is able to also carry the 8 GB iPhone 3GS introduced by Apple last June as a low-end alternative to the iPhone 4.
