Galaxy SIII S3 (Sprint system) with Trial Offers $30 shipped

-25 Deal Score
5,812 Views
The link from the prior SD on this phone still works, and it has dropped from $40 to $30. Mine came in perfect condition other than a scuff on the back case. An oldie but a goodie. Replaceable battery if yours comes dead.

This deal only appears through the SD link, otherwise it is $70. If for some reason the above copied link does not work, go to the 8-28 thread and click there.

Go ahead and TD if you like, that seems to be the case with all the other recent Freedompop strings. But:

Use a capped value credit card or VCC (I used $40), follow the wiki for the extras cancel tutorials, add some Freedomfriends to get up to 1000mb data, and make at least a call a month through the app, Then you have a true free phone. It charged $5 to downgrade to true free, but that goes into the account so it also allows you to cancel topup.

An affordable first phone for your kid seems to me a fantastic idea.

Hell, you can get a Moto E4 for $10 more. Why indeed.

You must be thinking about someone else's kid b/c my child would never do that. I think my suggestion for a use of this phone is perfectly reasonable, for some, even if your not willing to except that. As for the service.. well, my child just mentioned how happy they were they can play online games down at the park away from wifi.

We all can see clearly this is not the latest software but it still can be useful for some. Do you have any positive suggestions or input, as I did, regarding this phone other than violence & emotional hatred towards fp in a fp post?

It's not a good deal, because as pointed out, you can get a Moto E4 (Verizon) unlocked for $42, then add $1 SIM for a much better phone, on a much better network. If you need more data than 700MB, then get a 2nd SIM. In addition, your data won't be throttled to 1Mb/s after the first month.

In short, any FP Sprint deal is now a bad deal, because they're all worse than FP's own AT&T SIM option. I'm not a FP hater, just simple evaluation.

Thanks for all your comments folks. Always fun to post. FP haters rule.

BTW try to find an S3 or better without a cracked screen for 30 with free cell service and free 1GB data. Then post. And yes I have an LG Phoenix unlocked from last BF with an FP sim. This is a better phone.

Violence? Couldn't you find a way to squeeze the racism word in there?
