(added additional info above for further clarification) 9/3/2012


Details for In-Store Purchase:
Existing Walmart Family Mobile customers are able get the $299 deal, just verify your telephone number and PIN to purchase the phone. Existing Monthly 4G Customers cannot get the deal - however they can activate the new phone and should be able to call in to transfer their previous account info into the new account.

I'll be answering questions here (also on the page linked below). Walmart does have these, look at the photos on the page. Ask someone competent in the Walmart Connection Center and ask if they have them in stock. They got the update on their computers last week (8/6/2012) on the deal and how it works. Stores received them between August 8th through the 13th - some earlier.

UPC:
WFM Variant: 610214630827
T-Mobile Prepaid Variant: 610214630810

Thanks to pacersman for the M4G UPC

Adding this to clear up questions
There seems to be a lot of incorrect assumptions on here as well as a lot of misinformation being given. Let me clarify everything. Also, it would be worth reading the info listed in the source.

This deal works ONLY at Walmart stores in the Connection Center. Stores should have received them and should have the info tags posted next to their Walmart Family Mobile display. There are no additional discounts or rebates available on this. The Galaxy S II is $570 outright, so you are effectively getting this phone for $270 off already.

There are two separate ways to attain the Galaxy S II for $299 in store:
¤ Activate a Walmart Family Mobile account. This will require a $25 activation kit, which includes your WFM SIM card. For more info on that, view the source. Existing customers of WFM should be able to get this deal after confirming their account.

¤ Buy the Prepaid variant - aka, the T-Mobile Monthly 4G Branded Box. This includes the Prepaid SIM card in the box, which they will activate for you. You must get a monthly plan valued at $30 and up.

Not all stores have these phones yet, but that has to do with their ordering system and their competence.

could try it for a month and see if its for youu.

also its on the short list for CM official devices, AOKP JB, CM10, AOSP
The Galaxy Nexus is absolutely worth the trade off. T-Mobile and Samsung ruined this phone with the ICS update. Mine was crashy, Bluetooth was glitchy (although to be fair, this is more Google's fault) and the whole experience was awful. Sure it does have a faster processor, but you'd never know that by how slow the thing was all the time. Get the Galaxy Nexus. You won't be disappointed.

Where are you seeing support for CM? It's always been for the international GSII, not the T-Mobile version.

its the US variant of the i9100. The difference is the body and the processor. The data speeds are faster on this version due to Tmobile "4G"
And the processor makes all the difference. The community around the T-Mobile variant is much smaller and slower than the international one.

For $200, I really like to get this phone but can this phone be unlocked and used in other countries which only have 2G and 3G support?

hmm.. not bad, but it feels old technology when you have the s3 out...

thanks for sharing it though.
The s3 tech is too far ahead of it's time though- still no 4G lte in most places, at least with Sprint. The s2 you can use 4G most places.

I do agree with you about the community bit. Because each US carrier has their own variant of the Galaxy S2, there's no unified development although the T-mobile version has decent sized support

This is good price. I was hunting for an s2 on craiglist for a while now. Stumbled across a blaze for $110 and currently using it. Its much quicker then my S1.

These sell for 250-310 on craigslist so 299 is a good price. And I would take this over the nexus just because of the sd card slot and the $50 difference. I dont care much for the updates since I like to mess with roms all the time anyway.

Yes your right about the S2G is older technology.. I have the S3G from Verizon 32GB one for $249. I also have S2E from T-Mobile even OC to 1024/800MHz which is stable really quick. But the S3G is better for those who can't see what's on the S2E screen is tiny. S3G is dual core 2GB of RAM blows everything out of pocket. Make sure if you buy the S3G you get the Otterbox because if the S3G falls it can get damage. S2G wasn't that way though.
You have the S3G from Verizon 32GB one for $249 without contract ?

Well that's new. But I did have the chance to test an XDA dev's port of the nightly and RC on my phone. No one could hear me and the cell reception was horrible.

I don't agree with this statement. Here's why:

1. The Galaxy Nexus already has several stable versions of Jelly Bean being offered at the moment and will always have the best Rom/dev support since all revisions of Android OS will be pushed to nexus devices first hence bugs can be worked out earlier on.

2. The G Nexus screen blows the SG2 screen out of the water with a much higher resolution (higher res than SG3)

3. Higher mega pixels doesn't always translates to better pictures. The G Nexus has minimal shutter speed and truth be told as far as pic quality goes the S3 only has a slightly higher rated pic quality.

I don't know if the GNEX can be assigned to a prepaid plan but if you can manage to pull that off then you would wind up with a far superior device than the SG2. But as many others have already mentioned, for a prepaid device and at this price then you would be getting one of the best devices available.

SGS II has HSDPA 42 Mbps, the Galaxy Nexus has HSDPA 21 Mbps..

Game Over, besides that is $55 more expensive than that $299 price.


Yes galaxy will aways have better software as is the google flagship phone, the half speed data realy kills it.

Also this phone is same as ATT Skyrocket version. So you can use Roms developed for Skyrocket as well.

Forgive me for my ignorance but what are you doing that requires 42 Mbps on a limited data plan?

I have a 50Mbps home connection and it wasn't that great of an improvement over when I had 10 Mbps so why does 42 Mbps kill this?
