Radio Shack Offering Up Trade In Deal For Samsung Galaxy S 4G

Oh those folks at Radio Shack are working the deals to attract customers and T-Mobile fans should take note of the special Samsung Galaxy S 4G offer. The device itself will be $149.99 for new customers or $199.99 for upgrading customers but you’ll also receive a $20 gift card. The gift card is designed to be used toward accessory purchases but our Radio Shack ninja says they can use the gift card toward the purchase price of the phone.

Even better is the trade in deal Radio Shack is offering, a $50 credit for any working T-Mobile device taking the price of the new activation phone to $99.99 and $149.99 for upgrading customers. The trade in credit can be taken off instantly so you could easily walk out with a Galaxy S 4G for $79.99 or $129.99 if you play your cards right. Not bad Radio Shack!

    didn’t people last time NOT get their gift cards that were owed to them by radio shack?

    • kuntri

      The gift card process is by choice
      1, use it for accessories = 95% of the time they will if they are working with a good salesperson….
      2, or given out after sale

        yeah I can understand that. Personally, I would use the gift card towards the purchase pirce, but still, they made a promise, and didn’t keep it. People are out $50…if $50 isn’t a big deal to you, I’ll send you my paypal address and you can send me $50, since, you know, it’s not a big deal :P

    WoW… what a deal (all pun-intended). Radio shack is BS. I looked on their website for the trade-in program they would give me like $114 for my basically brand new T-Mobile G2. R u f’in serious? half of the retail price would be reasonable, but $114? O_o. Radio shack sucks. Best Buy would give me like $300 if I bought it from Best Buy with the Buy Back program they now have, & I could sell it on ebay or swappa & get between $350-$450.

    • Mainlandking

      Dtheartist, you have to understand the depreciation value of your device. Doesn’t matter how long you have had it, much like buying a nw cart for one price, driving it off the lot and the value going down. The second thing you must understand is that rs doesn’t have to offer anything. Whether or not you went there will not really affect them. It sounds like you are reasonable, but cmon, half retail when you didn’t spend half retail? And you are upgrading to a new device? If I wete you, if take that deal bc if you hot one on the g2, you not even qualified for a discount…..

      • http://cosmicbreeze.tumblr.com/ DtheArtist

        Oh, I understand that, but I really don’t even care. I know the value goes down, that’s obvious. $114, is ridiculous, $250, understandable, but come on… $114? you gotta be kidding me. I’m not necessarily even expecting to get the $350-$450 I could get from it elsewhere. But, $114 is completely ridiculous. & excuse me, did you ask me did I spend more than half retail on my phone before making any assumptions? I didn’t buy my phone on contract. I actually bought my phone full retail price for $554 thank you very much.. I think you should ask before you assume. But, thanks for saying I am reasonable.

        • Mainlandking

          No doubt. I think you are being very reasonable personally.

        • Anonymous

          Best Buy’s buyback program will Max at 50% of the MSRP. So in reality, you’re looking at less than you projections, also they charge more invoice. You do have a point about the insanely low value they are giving phones, but that’s what all trade-in programs do because they are still trying to turn a profit. Are you prepared to root/flash your Galaxy S 4G, or were you just poking around to feed your curiousness? I dont know that it’s a good successor to a G2′s pure experience unless you’re looking for FFC time.

    lol as much of a fanboy of android that I am.. samsung releases the nexus s with 2.3 and then another phone that should be newer than it with 2.2…

    no wonder everyone keeps dissing android…its the damn manufactures messing it up for us.

    • frigadroid

      That’s why I hate on samsung. We had to get all uppity on them to get a buggy mini keys froyo update after they, along with tmobile took their time.
      Now I hear tonight the epic is getting their update ota, when we were told ota was impossible? To much BS with samsung.
      I love the screen/media player and easy mirror to tv and don’t care about cheap plastic feel. My problem is the radio and gps is weak and their software & support is crap.

        Frigadroid, I’m having trouble understanding your logic. I would recommend that you educate yourself before speaking bc we who are educated and know how things work, don’t believe ish you saying bc of one fallacy in your statement….every same person knows that the PROVIDER of cell phone service, has no control of the ota. It if the manufacturer who has to come up with the ota update as it if their equipment. Also, its not the gps that’s weak, is must likely you, bc my gps and everything else works great. May need to call samsung seeing as they are the manufacturer…

          For so educated you sure have a lot of typos, and as you admitted trouble understanding logic. I will agree with that.
          If you were educated or not so hard for you to understand logic you would know that it is irrelevant how your gps/radio works as compared to mine. I have a better signal with my g1 so I agree with you it is a manufacture problem like my first one. Same manufacture as epic samsung. Like I said to much BS with samsung on updates tmobile only delayed it over the holidays. I didn’t say tmobile was responsible for mini keys, you should know better, that’s samsung sukware. So don’t take it personal when I diss samsung I have my reasons. No need for you to make a samsung fanboy fool of yourself.

    • Aerofanbig

      latest reports are saying 2.3 is ONLY going to be on the Nexus S, the next update will still be Gingerbread but it will be 2.3. Kinda of like when Droid came out with 2.0 and it was exclusive to that device, everyone else got 2.1, both were still called Eclair. One or 2 devices were reported to be coming out with 2.3 but it was probably a typo and they meant 2.4

    Not sure this is the place, but I have the original mytouch 3G. A nice phone that I have had since it originally came out. The phone satisfies my basic needs for texting, checking email, music, videos, yada, yada, yada. The one thing I have grown tired of is the endless undates of my apps, and my phone not being upgradeable past its current software of Android 1.6 or whatever it is. I have to buy a newer phone for newer software. I’m not bagging on Android or the hardware makers, but DAMN! How many new phones are going to come out?
    At one time I could not wait for the next new Android to hit T-Mobile, I have since grown tired of the endless stream of gotta have its. Samsung S 4G this week, Motorola that next week, HTC somthing else next month. I know its good for the consumer, and technology changes by the minute, but I fuction well in a more structured environment. I have been with T-Mobile since it was Voice Stream, how many of you can say that! I guess some of you know where I’m headed, but I can’t take it anymore, my wife is a Crackberry addict, and she is done too. We have an iPod Touch, getting ready to buy and iPad, and iPhone 5′s will be bought this summer. We are done, the fragmentation with Android is endless. If T-Mobile does not show signs of landing the iPhone buy the end of the summer I’m out. I know I’m going to get killed for this post, but I know I am not the only Android fan that feels like this.

      root ur phone. that phone is almost 2yrs old dude….u should be ready for an upgrade

    • Rage

      im the exact same way! good old voice stream customer as well. i am thinking about doing the same thing. i was going to get the new vibrant but im sick of getting new phones. the i phone is ONCE a year. i could live with a phone that changes once a year. not like this samsung BS! i started with the behold 2 then hd2 that was junk ( not samsung) and went back to samsung for the vibrant now they have another one on the way! thats 3 with in the year! im so sick of it! some of the technology on the phones was available for the previous phone but didnt add it!

        If you want a phone that google will support fully get a nexus one or s, I’m not gettin on anyones case but understanding that android is a OS thats made by google and google allows its software to be used on different manufacturers phones is what its all about. Apple on the other hand restricts its iOS from being used on different phones so its only available on the iphone. So bashing google and adroid for their constant software upgrades is redundant, 2.2 is the almost fully complete OS android has made that can compete against iOS. The people you need to hold accountable for are the manufacturers like samsung sony htc and so on for producing so many phones in a quarter.

      The problem with this post here is that you are identifying the iphone as a device(which you should) but citing the fact that a bunch of different Android phones come out all the time and it seems to be too much for you. That’s kind of a foolish argument considering Android is an OS with phones across all carriers and OEMs and the iPhone is the only phone running iOS. everyone is entitled to their own opinion on phones so i will not start bashing you for wanting an iphone. I own one also. I will say though, you should be buying a phone for specs that matter to you. When you bought the Vibrant you knew FFC cameras and 4G phones were on the way. If these were things that mattered to you, you shouldve waited and bought a phone you loved. Kept up with your phone’s updates and if you wanted to go the extra mile rooted/flashed it. It would be like if you were really looking for a phone with a 4″ display or better, bought this current iPhone and then the next version came out with a bigger screen. Apple is the king of holding back technology. In case you didnt realize, they just put a flash on their Camera and this is the 4th iPhone already. They still dont have flash support, didnt have video capture until their 3rd phone, didnt allow you to landscape your keyboard until the second phone. Couldnt change your background until the 4th phone. Wont allow you to use facetime off of WiFi until the next phone. These are issues that people for some reason love to overlook when talking about an iphone. Everytime i go into my appstore I have to update at least 2-3 apps so I dont understand that complaint. It seems as though you love Apple though so frankly I dont even understand why you own an Android phone, maybe you shouldve right-fitted yourself and picked the phone for you, instead of trying to like Android and complaining about problems that affect all smartphones not just Android phones.

        i think what he was saying is that android should spend a little more time and do updates ONCE a year

    If i was most of you guys i would not rush to get this new phone right away i would wait about 2 to 3 weeks after this phones come out. the first 2 batch of phones always have probs with them.

    Also my T-Mobile store is offering better trade in program 70 or more for a trade up of any cell phone from any company on an upgrade or new line also with a 100 rebate O_O now thats a deal lol.

    I’ve been debating about holding out for the galaxy s2 until I found this….

    “Samsung Galaxy S2 Release in UK will be at 4th of March with price of £549.95″ that’s a whole lot of USD for a phone, So, keep your duel 1gz processor and I’ll buy myself another computer before I spend $800 on a phone…

    • Scrizz

      It’s not going to be $800. You can’t compare prices like that.
      Most likely it will be $549 that’s how they usually do these things.
      just look at past history. The phone isn’t going to be $800…..

    Of course Samsung would release a phone with outdated software. Why can’t you release a phone with the CURRENT software? And touchwiz? Bleh…. I bought the Captivate when it was brand new and that was almost a year ago and it is still on version 2.1…. Come on.. If you are going to buy this phone, just know that Samsung doesn’t have any plans on upgrading the software until after you’ve grown too sick of their games. I sold the outdated Captivate. The only difference between this phone is 4g capability, front-facing camera, and bigger screen. Worth $200 with an upgrade or new contract? maybe $50 at the most…. Please don’t make the same mistake I did. Go buy an HTC Mytouch 4g if you want an awesome phone with almost guaranteed updates.

    • Guest

      I would not suggest mytouch 4g, since it had the worst battery life ..

      • Its Alex Ob

        I have it and I used to have the Samsung captivate…unless the battery it is bigger on the new galaxy s, the phone will die like mine did before 5 pm with only moderate use. My mytouch lasts until at least 11 pm with more use and brightness. To me, the Samsung phones are just too crappy with plastic everywhere and the waiting for updates when everyone else was getting them is horrible.

  • Anonymous

    I’m sorry to burst your bubble but I’m a radio shack employee and I can tell you that the $20 accessory credit cannot be used toward the purchase price of the phone, and as a matter of fact the $20 gift card cannot be used until the next day after the purchase of the phone. The $50 credit for your old phone is instant, although be sure to check the value of your phone because it might just be over $50 and you might get as much as $100 credit depending on the phone (HTC HD2 trade in value is aprox $83)
