NEW: Walmart Family Mobile is doing $100 in bill credits on their smartphone activations. Details here: http://slickdeals.net/f/5461136-Walmart-Family-Mobile-Giving-Out-100-in-Bill-Credits-for-New-Smartphone-Activations-11-5-1-6

Available at Walmart Wireless locations now & Now available on Walmart.com

T-Mobile No-Contract Galaxy S II for $299 with activation in store on one of the following:
T-Mobile Prepaid Monthly 4G - $30 and up monthly plans. Monthly 4G Kits Have Arrived!
Walmart Family Mobile Activation or Verification of Current Account

New activation of Walmart Family Mobile (REQUIRES $25 activation kit, which includes SIM card)


Now Available with a $30 Prepaid Card Bundle @ Walmart.com [thatsitguys.com] for $329.99

(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.

Unlock

How to unlock this phone:

Call T-mobile (must speak to the Pre-paid department) and request an unlock code. If purchased at this price point, you will not be able to get an unlock code by faxing in a receipt if you have not had your account active for a minimum of 60 days. Once you have had a minimum of 60 days service AND load your account with a minimum of $10, submit your request and expect a response with the code via email in just a day or two. Alternatively, instead of loading your account with money you can not have refunded, simply pay for your third month of service and you will be become eligible for an unlock code. (If you try to circumvent these rules you will likely just run into HUGE headaches, T-mobile pre-paid customer service is TERRIBLE).



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Memory

Strange. This is a T989 phone that shows only 768MB RAM and 12GB ROM, unlike the identified characteristics of 1GB/16GB. Not sure what to make of it.

Does not work on ATT
DOES NOT work with ATT prepaid data. Does not work at all, no 3G or 2G speed, nothing absolutely. If you are buying for that purpose, please dont waste your money. On the other hand, perhaps ATT customers may want to migrate/port their number to T-Mobile and use this awesome phone on their $50 monthly plan. Thats what I am going to do. F* ATT.
--thelatest2008
-- How can that be? Isn't this a 2G/3G/HSPA+ phone with both ATT & Tmo antennas/network stacks? Do you mean that the T989 is locked to Tmo, so you just have to buy an unlock code or wait for Tmo to unlock it?
-- Does the T989 have the same radio/network stack as the Samsung Galaxy Nexus?

With Apple winning the verdict in court won't these phones get blown off the shelf? I thought this might be a good deal a month ago but today I can't say it's a good deal now. T-mobile.com has been selling (check daily deal) the s2 for free with classic plan and only charges $200 to migrate to value plan just as an FYI.

If you're looking for a car mount , the Samsung Infuse 4G mount works perfectly for both SII and SIII ( I have both phones )

http://www.att.com/shop/wireless/...90308.html

For some reason, this does not fit my S2. Does not clip into place - might just be faulty, but it's going back.

It took some acrobatic talent to get it fit in, but didn't feel safe. Moreover, the mount didn't charge the SII with the original charger as well as a high-amp (HP TouchPad 2.0 A) charger.

It sounds you paid $200 ETF total for 2 phones rather than $200 for each phone. How did you do that?
Nope I paid $200 per each phone (total $400) instead of paying $600 through Walmart

For the folks asking about the Gnex, that phone is fully unlocked and just about the only "Pentaband" phone out there. It will support both ATT and TMO "4G" (HSPA+) service. Like a lot of folks, I am looking for a low risk way to try out TMO service around me. If I order a GNex and the service blows, I'm going to be eating the return shipping and a 15% restocking fee.

So here is my dilemma. Local Walmart has the T Mobile GS2 in stock, but it is the family mobile branded version. Price is $299. I want to buy a GS2 to run on the T Mobile 100 minute $30 a month plan. the Walmart clerk is telling me the family mobile version cannot be used with the monthly 4 G plans. That seems like a bunch of crap to me, since both phones appear to be identical in terms of specs.

I would think I could buy the family mobile version (That of course runs on TMOs network), buy or order a Monthly 4G SIM card, and end up with the same result. The clerk says the family mobile version can only be used with family mobile, and that I have to purchase their $25 SIM card with the phone and use their $45 a month service.

So which of us is right? Are the Family Mobile and TMO Monthly 4G versions the same, and can they be set up for use on either plan? Or are they somehow locked to one service?

Thanks for any input.

I think you guys are right... but someone (a few people?) posted that the T989 radio/network capabilities does not allow internet access (or maybe high speed internet?) on ATT, but I cannot find anything to say that the Galaxy Nexus is different.

I've found a link that says ATT is using LTE, and it is not clear to me if the T989 is capable of the same LTE as ATT is working on.

Do you guys know if the T989 has the same radio/network capabilities as the Galaxy Nexus (which is the only other contender right now, I'm not interested in the ATT branded skyrocket).
Neither the T989 nor GNex support LTE. There is a CDMA version of GNex that supports LTE but not the bands AT&T uses. T989 supports HSPA+42 vs the GNex HSPA+21. There are other pros and cons of each (display, screen size, OS support, etc). GNex (from the Play store) will work fine under AT&T 4G (HSPA+). It looks like the 989 from the specs will also (WCDMA 850/1900) but I haven't tried nor confirmed it.

Repped, and thanks.

I'm not sure why someone posted in the wiki that the T989 will not work on ATT data.

I have a T989 on AT&T right now and the data works just fine. I put CM9 on it and it does just fine.

I chose the cheapest (80 per 2 phones 1000 min with 200MB data each). It came out at almost $50

So what is the total cost on getting s2 with your Method ?

ETF $200 X2= $400
Monthly Classic Plan (14 days)= $50
Tax= ?

No TAX (in my local Walmart, the only one around that actually had the phones, it was 6.5%) for buying online (and no activation fee due to the promotion)

The S2 I ordered will arrive today, for use on the T-Mobile Value Plan.

* The $30 prepaid code can be sold? Is this correct? Looks like they are selling for a decent price on Ebay.
* This will be a replacement phone, same size sim card and the old phone is also Android. Is it necessary to contact T-Mobile for activation?

I got the phone for a family member.

Thanks!
