What happened to the $99 refurb iPhone 4 16 GB option?

A week ago I was trying to upgrade my phone and plan online, and the website wouldn't let me log into my pick-your-plan account.  There was an option for a $99 refurbished iPhone 4 16 gB.  After getting the login issue sorted out today, I went to look at iphones again, and the $99 refurbed 4 has vanished.  There's now just a new 3GS for $49, and a refurbished 4 32gB for $199; nothing in between.

 

Do specific types of refurb phones vanish from time to time?  Anyone have any idea how to find out when they'll be back?

 

Another question, if I buy the refurb 3GS for $9 + 2-year plan, can I purchase a different iphone at any time in the future and upgrade to it?  Are there any restrictions on when I can do that?

Nevermind, I've just got some wires crossed from staring at various parts of the AT&T website for the past 45 minutes.. It was right in front of me. No obvious way to delete this post (I'm sure that's just right in front of me, too...)

Okay, that's weird, now it's not showing up.

 

http://www.wireless.att.com/cell-phone-service/packages/iphone-packages.jsp

 

It was the third option on this page, but when I cut and pase into IE, it doesn't show.  If I load the same page in Firefox, it's there.  I entered my zip code at some point in both browsers.  No idea.

 

When I try to cut and paste the link directly to the page, IE goes back to the main cellphone packages & deals page.

It's back, just now in white.  And it is showing up on my previous posted link as well.  I guess these just come and go.
