Motorola CHARM And T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Get Retail Price Discount

 

In a rather unusual course of action, T-Mobile has apparently decided to discount the retail prices of the Motorola CHARM and the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G with 3.5mm Jack.

The Motorola CHARM has been discounted from $269.99 to $199.99, and the T-Mobile MyTouch 3G with 3.5mm Jack has been discounted from $399.99 to $299.99. The discount applies to all colors that the devices are available in. Though we didn’t report it before, T-Mobile has done this three times before. The first time was with the T-Mobile Comet, which was discounted from $199.99 to $149.99 a few months after it was released. The second time was with the Motorola CLIQ 2, which was discounted from $399.99 to $269.99 over Valentines’ Day weekend. Both discounts were quietly launched, with no mention of the discounts anywhere except at the site and in corporate stores. The CLIQ 2 offer was quietly removed on the Monday after Valentines’ Day weekend, as if it never existed. The third time was with the Samsung Galaxy Tab in January, we skipped over the fact the retail price dropped from $599.99 to $499.99, and talked about the contract price drop instead.

For those who prefer contract-free service, these are compelling for those who don’t need top of the line Android phones. And like the CLIQ 2 offer, this probably is only for a limited time, so grab it while it’s hot!

    Why anyone would chose one of these over an Optimus T is a mystery to me.

    • Ms.Carmen Diva

      I’d take a mytouch over the Optimus T.
      Personally, i find the phone more attractive.
      I dont like LG phones.

    The same MyTouch3G can be purchesed OFF-CONTRACT from NewEgg.com for $189… though I believe they also had a coupon code posted the the begining of the week which would knock off another $30 from that.

        One can get the Mytouch4g for $350-$300 brand new off ebay or craiglist, which I am considering since I dont want to lose my $59.99 all inclusive plan(500 talk minutes I’ll admit). Why someone would by the 3g is beyond me. Of course you have to trust the seller……

        Nowhere on the newegg page does it say “Refurbished”, “re-certified” or even “Open Box”.

        yyevo, what are you reading that says referb?

          Brainstorm is a reseller. They do drop-shipments and will-call orders just like the company that delivers beer to your favorite liquor markets and grocery stores. http://brainstormco.com/faq.html

          Do you think that Newegg gets everything they sell, directly from the manufacture? That would be a lot of driving around for the “Newegg.com Trucks”.

    This is what tmobile does when they’re about to release new phones… ie g2x! ::giggles frantically::

  • Wow!

    I have the original myTouch and however “young” it might be, it really shows its age but the G2X coming out, it will be an awesome upgrade!!

    • Ms.Carmen Diva

      isnt the original mytouch, like 2 years old?

    Charm? No thanks, motoblur and the fact that it was already abandoned for upgrades by motorola make it a no buy for me.
