Deal Details

Last Edited by meleniumshane90 November 12, 2012 at 03:04 AM
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.

Does anyone know if they're selling the white version too, or just the black one?

I'm really surprised anybody would buy a Galaxy SII now...if you just need something contract free because you're waiting for a next gen phone (or you're on a non-contract plan) I'd probably get something cheaper. I'm running the Pantech Burst and it's available super easily for $150 and has great specs...paid $130 used for mine. Right now I'd either go all out and get the latest phone or get something cheap to wait until after the next iPhone drops. Even if you want an android phone the competition is gonna heat up and the supplies of used phones will be much more plentiful after the iPhone launch since a lot of people will likely be upgrading.

Since the only LTE phone being mentioned now for T-mobile runs Windows and the upcoming One X+ will run ~$600+, this phone sounds like a good deal. You get new vs used and it runs the same price as the prepaid Galaxy Blaze. This unit should go Jellybean but in 18 months there will be something else and perhaps some good value LTE phones by that time. I feel sorry for those uses who paid full price for an S3 where the One X+ quad core and LTE are on the horizon.

I got a new galaxy S3 for $100 more. Do you think S3 is a better deal or this one ?

I was looking for a used Galaxy S2 for T-Mobile $30 prepaid on CG & Ebay for the past week...to pull or not to pull.
you are risking your IMEI blocked in the near future when buying used phones from CL or EBay when TMo implement their own stolen phone database like AT&T. Plus this phone goes for $250 used and $300 new on CL, and +50 more on Ebay off contract.

a month ago it was $390 at costco with 2 year value plan. Since you are paying their "full" price already, some ppl cancel the plan afterwards and still kept the phone.

I don't know why you would get this over the Gnex, if you're worried about wifi calling there are alternatives (grooveip/sipdroid.)

Quote from meleniumshane90 View Post :
I just updated this to cover all the questions I've seen.

Also... if you are trying to do this on Straight Talk (I have no idea why, it's not cheaper and the customer service sucks) but ST sells T-Mobile SIMs..

http://www.straighttalk.com/ShopSims
CS sucks either way and T-Mobile is only cheaper if you don't actually compare the plans, the $30 plan is great if you rarely make phone calls but T-Mo does not have a $45 unlimited* everything plan.

*ST isn't unlimited it is 2GB of high speed per month so the equivalent TMo plan is $60/mo.

They will still charge $200 early termination fee if it is cancelled. 390$ is not the full price.

not if you cancel within 14 days. $390 was the full price at costco on the value plan and there are no installments. But that's a month ago, they no longer sells GS3 on their value plan anymore.

When one cancels within 14 days, phone should be returned?
