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.

This deal has not been pulled from Walmart. They go in and out of stock both online and in stores.

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.

The first digit that is larger starts with a 6. I do not have it in front of me as it is in the car but I will see about posting a picture. I read it twice before sending the post but I will check again.

I finally found one. The guys behind the counter were confused by the T-mobile packaging and put them with the postpaid phones. Fortunately I saw the little white boxes with the "Monthly 4G" stickers when I peeked behind the counter. Nice phone for $299, especially when they are selling for $550+ everywhere else.

Sweet! So you can go through cashback sites for even more savings.

Thanks, I got this one. FWIW I first tried to use AmEx (thinking it would double the warranty) but was declined. AmEx later called to make sure it wasn't a fraudulent attempt.

Thank you so much Superob!!! I got tired of looking at my local Walmart's and decided to buy it online (through fatwallet 1.5% cash back).

I looked in walmart.com but the search engine is so inaccurate that always throws way too many items

I will be happy if JB is coming to S2 - do you have any official links stating that?

I see that it's finally available online but AFAIK, there is no way to purchase the phone without the $30 T-Mobile prepaid card, right? I was thinking about going with the StraightTalk $45 unlimited web + text + talk deal. So, that means it's $329 + $2.97 shipping + 5% (~$16.x) sales tax for me or about $350 if I were to buy it online, and the various cb % below:

e b a t e s - 1%
ShopDiscover - 5%
FW - 1.5%

The 5% cb basically pays for the sales tax in this case.

If I were to go with the StraightTalk plan, can I get the ST T-Mobile SIM card at Walmart at the store, or is it online direct from ST only?

Nice! I was wondering if they'd put it online, I didn't expect it to be this soon. My local store said they don't expect it for at least 3-4 weeks.

Looks like the online version will come unactivated with SIM card and $30 refill card? If so, I'm just going to sell the prepaid airtime and put my postpaid SIM in the phone. I have an S III but have been wanting an S II again as a backup except I'm not paying $550 + tax to get it directly from T-Mobile shake head

Careful...

The Walmart web page reads like you will be emailed the PIN for the $30 airtime - so no $30 card to resell.
