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.

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.

Iphone 4s is only $99 on 2 year contract!!!
Fine. $99. Big deal. FREE S II on a 2yr vs. $99 for the 4S. FREE is still better than $99.

Quote from raju_77 View Post :
Thanks for all the suggestion. I indeed was offered a free Galaxy SII today with no upgrade fee... The phone is for my wife and she did not want the SIII since it was too large for her.. Will wait for 14 days and move to pre-paid.. The reason we do not want to be on contract is we probably would move out of the country next year and do not want a contract.. The $30 plan will provide her with 100mins, and unlimited talk and text.. Thanks for all the help and suggestions..
The only tricky part about that $30 plan is that it's supposed to be for new activations. Usually to go from postpaid > prepaid, you'd just call customer care and have them switch you over w/ the same SIM card and everything. Except I don't think they can select the $30 100min/unlim SMS/5GB plan that way. So.. If you're keeping her number, you'll have to call several times to try and get switched to the $30 100min/5GB plan *or* just take a new number. The latter will be worlds easier but she'd lose her phone number.

I've been impressed with this phone. Very few issues compared to the HTC I had previously.

Question for those using this the prepaid WFM plan, T-Mobile's $30 plan or even Straight Talk's $45 plan with the S2...

Does the calls to your check your voice mail count against your 100 minutes talk allotment (for T-Mobile)? I know WFM and ST are unlimited talk so that's not an issue there.

Calls for checking voice mail count against the 100 minutes allowance for the T-Mobile $30 plan.

That sucks. Frown

I'm guessing that I'd have to use something like Google Voice (read somewhere that Vonage has an app that has free calls?) to extend or add voice minutes then, on this phone?

Quick question - i already have the T-Mob $30 plan with my exhibit 4G and i plan on putting that sim in this phone. So, best option would be to sign up to the walmart plan as its $5 cheeper than the T-Mob plan. I'm assuming the Walmart plan uses T-Mob sims so i should just be able to swap the sims out?

Google Voice uses the plan minutes. Your options for free calling are many - GrooveIP, Sipdroid, Vonage, CSipSimple etc. or even calling the access # from a landline

Thanks for the clarification; I didn't realize that Google Voice uses plan minutes. EEK!

By the way, I couldn't find CSipMobile on the Google Play store on a search.

Of all the VoIP based apps above, what's the general consensus as to which is the most reliable and uses the least amount of bandwidth?
