Walmart Selling The HTC Sensation 4G Early?

Attention Walmart shoppers the Sensation 4G has landed for a lucky few. We’re receiving word and we’ve got some pics to prove it that at least a few lucky Walmart shoppers have been able to pick up the Sensation 4G from their local store today. The lucky sender of these pics definitely isn’t alone as this XDA forum thread shows at least another dozen individuals scoring the Sensation 4G at Walmart with everyone receiving the same $148.88 price plus tax. Better start calling your local Walmart and see if they won’t part with their inventory!

For those asking the Sensation 4G is coming with an 8GB microSD card in the box.

Thanks Birdsfan!

    • Darksavior

      got mine at the hawthorne costco for 180 + tax of the original price which came out to like 220+. they  werent allowed to sell them. the official date is the 15th.  phone was on display early so they were forced to sell it to me.  they couldnt even ring it up. it rang up as “DO NOT SELL”. he had to get a manager override.

      so fat chance now. you guys will have to wait until the 15th like the rest. but trust me, the costcos have them already.

    i purchased mine at walmart in mesa az next to the bass pro shop. they had 5 left

  • Anonymous

    I got mine at the Wally World in Landover, MD this afternoon. However, the transaction took roughly 2 hours because the employee was mildly ______ (fill in the blank). The transaction required me to leave WM and go to a tmo store to get another SIM card because the WM employee f*cked up so many times on the transaction for THE LAST SENSATION. Totally worth it. I am completely enjoying the phone but I can’t quite comment on performance because I am coming from using a malfunctioning BB 9700. So everything with this sensation is faster than anything I am used to. Also, the TMO rep was there and I thought she was going to somehow prevent me from getting the phone but she was excited that I even knew about it.

    Got mine today here in the Phenix City Alabama.  There were 5 in stock total and I was the first one to come in and ask for one at 6:30pm. I am coming from a fully customizable linux based open sourced Nokia N900 and what can I say this Sensation blows it away just absolutley Love it WOW!!!!! The phone was 148.00 and with Tax came out to 160.00.  Clerk knew what to do and had everything set up for me in minutes my number was eligible for an upgrade and thats the route that I took

  • EJD

    OK so I found a walmart 5 min from where I live that is selling the phone on the 11th. Now here in lies my dilemma. I`ve read a few comments about the death grip in landscape and also one comment stating dust had found it`s way under the screen. Is there a real flaw in the body design that will allow dust under the screen and is this death grip thing for real or what? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    • Carms

      I own the device got it straight from HTC on 6/6 and there is NO death grip in any direction. Actually has amazing reception and as expected short battery life.

      • EJD

        Thanks for your reply. I expected the battery life to be short on this phone. Have you noticed any dust getting under your screen?

        • Reyesmm

          I turned it all over, no death grip.

      • Anonymous

        Dude, if you just got the phone on 6/6 it’s kind of hard to speak on battery life.  Condition and calibrate your battery.  I’m getting pretty decent battery life now. 

  • Blountman747

    WELL, i Love the phone, and. I got , one, but , its, lags, so much, and, and gets, hot, my, mytouch , 4g, is, a, 1ghz snapdragon , and I have, a bunch, of apps, and no, lag, mmmmmm, I’m not sure, but im returning, the phone,

        Mine is just ok, has some issues that I talked to 
        HTC about, they are aware……..

        • Anonymous

          GPS is great, no lag or freezes.  Just working on the battery which I’m sure will get better over time.  Plus, I’ll probably just rock Sense for a few months until the bootloader is unlocked and then run something clean and efficient like CM7.

    I’ve called the walmarts in my immediate area(30-40) miles southwest illinois 25 minutes from Stl. None of them have it yet. In 2 days they’ll all have them anyway so i”m not really freaking out. But, I do remember what happened with the incredible and getting burned.,,, with low supply issues.  Just want to get this device in my hands and put it through its paces.

    Hi kids,

    Got my HTC Sensation 4g here in Honolulu, HI.  Well, I went to Walmart (Mililani) location to pick it up.  $600 + applicable taxes (4.712%). Sweet!

  • THEBIZNESS12411

    IS THIS TRUE IF U GET THE PHONE FROM WAL MART…YOUR INSURANCE PLAN WONT PASS OVER TO THE NEXT BILL AND  THEY’LL GIVE YOU SOME OTHER TYPE OF WARRANTY? AND DOES THE PHONE HAVE T-MOBILE LOGO ON IT IF ITS FROM WAL MART..I KNOW THAT WEIRD QUESTION

    • Dru

      Of course it has the Tmobile logo on it. They’re the only carrier this phone works for in the US.,..how much do you even know about this device?

      • THBIZNESS12411

        I KNOW MORE THAN U KNOW DRU…I JUST HEARD THIS…YOU MAD

        • Dru

          Obviously you don’t if you have to ask if its going to have a Tmobile logo on it. If you knew ANYTHING about it.. that definitely wouldnt have been one of your questions. And no I’m not mad, i just thought it was kind of a silly question. And if you’re so new to just hearing about it, why not research a little first before asking question like that? It makes you look very uninformed, which you are. The phones manufactured by HTC being sold by Walmart and Tmobile but will be branded Tmobile only. It has a duo core cpu clocked 1.2 ghz. And you do not know more about than I do, because you just said you just heard this. You sound like you need to do more research before commenting…

        • Thebizness12411

          Ok Dru….I’ll see u soon…u need to stop talking to underage girls to…i know who u are…watch what happens to u today…sensational…

      Yes, the Assurance Plan with T Mobile covers what ever phone you have from the time you make the first call on it.  Even it you bought it from Wal Mart. 
      Wal Mart is a T Mobile Agent so yes it is a T Mobile Logo Product. 

    • Tre1232

      Yes it has the tmobile logo and i just called when i got home and had a tmobile rep square my insurance away its all good.

  • Cupcake

    Are there any ATL readers out here who have found any?  Was gonna check the Walmart near my house but dont wanna drive all over the place if nobody has been lucky enuf to buy one!

    Atlanta anyone?????!!!!!

    • Elmano68

      Call and ask the Wal-Mart’s, tell them to look where the phones are kept. Because It’s not on display yet.

  • matt

    I think you need to just go to the store?  I just called in and this store has it/is entering it into their system as we speak, but said it wouldnt be avail until 6/12.  but the official WM release is 6/13?  From this, I am assuming each store is kind of on there own as to how quickly they can get it into their system and selling… trying other locations now

  • http://www.facebook.com/phathom Peter Dudycz

    How good is this phone?

    • Reyesmm

      it is awesome, i done the research.  watch the vidz, phonedog, sensation vs g2x and all.  my brother and i were really debating on waiting on samsung galaxy II or get this.  well, we couldn’t wait and got it.  i am enjoying the phone. 

  • Keoni

    I bought mine yesterday.  Already a great phone

  • Brody

    I called the Walmart near my work and they have them.. but will not sell any until Sunday. Collinsville Illinois…I guess i’m just going to have to wait.

    Can anyone let me know if it has 2.3.4 or just 2.3??

    None of the Walmarts in my area even know if they are going to be getting them or not. I hate living where I live sometimes. Olympic Peninsula, where the women are hairy then the men and you’ll hard up to find a good 3G signal.

  • lattelady

    Looks like stock in making it into CA.  Costco Chino Hills said they had it yesterday & $199 upgrade, no off-contract selling.  Picked up mine  at  Glendora Walmart & kept the grandfathered plan, just the phone upgrade.  I was able to clarify you can get the upgrade reset, but it’s NOT automatic.  The clerk @ Walmart has to call TMO CS tell them the phone was returned & ask to have your upgrade reset.

    • Fahad Khan

      how much did you pay for the phone?
      How can i keep my grandfathered plan and still get his ? explain the steps  please.
      thank you.

    I can’t wait either! Hopefully they’ll be plenty in stock come Sunday morning!

    I went to the Walmart near my work and they wouldnt sell any. Didnt have any demo out either. I was told I could “look at the box’! ( i left promptly before I said something regretable). I then went to the Tmobile store and played with a demo unit. And I have mixed feelings. I still love it, but have decided not to get one because it didnt feel like a huge increase or upgrade over my incredible. Not so much faster that I even noticed a speed increase. The physical build quality.. is outstanding though. It feels like a very high end device. It has the right amount of weight and heft to it, that i would prolly rock it without a case on it because it hit the sweet spot on how a device should feel in hand. It looks futuristic and sleek, the curved screen was genius. But like I said I have an HTC incredible thats rooted and I wasn’t blown away. For some one new to android or HTC devices pick this device up.. you will love it.

  • Jgroney

    I got two in Garner, NC.  all the stores in Raleigh either didn’t have them yet or where out but as of yesterday there were still 3 in the Garner store.

  • Mmmaxheadroom

    Like my cliq 2 alot, however the first Walmart I stopped by today had a sensation and bam I fell for it hook line and 148.88 dollars sinker. Besides my wife liked the keyboard on my cliq2 and now no more behold for her. Also, the girl at Walmart said lots of people calling but she had 3 left after me, so give it a shot.

  • Chris

    Just got mine from porter ranch in socal. Thy only have like 1 or2 left. Typing from it right now and have to say its really nice. A big upgrade from my hd2. Sense 3.0 is really nice and snappy. And theeeeee screen is gorgeous. I have absolutely no problems with it. The speaker isn’t quiet at all and it sounds real nice and the led notification is nice and bright. Sure its not as fast as my computer but its is faster than my hd2. For all of u saying the phone is slow probably have a bunch of stuff running. If u want this phone go get it. Ohhhhh and it is the same size as my hd2 but feels a loooot nicer holding it. Annnnnd the keyboard is a lot better than sense 2.x

    • Anonymous

      The speaker is weak. Period. Try using it outdoors or in a crowded area. It’s weak. I hope an update fixes it

      • Chris

        Its definitely loud enough for me. I did notice tho that my catheter is broken. It makes my screen do things I am not. So Inma be exchanging it in a week.

  • Rudy

    Anyone in Texas area get one?

  • HadesHnds

    Just read some rumours that T-Mobile will be offering some sort of promotional event on Father’s day. Last year they gave away free phones with a new contract. That would be new, not renewal(I think, based on the limited amount of stuff I read.) Don’t even know if the Sensation is included in this promotion. Last year, new phones were. Maybe I’ll (BIGGGGG SIGH here!-really need a new phone) wait and save $$s. UGGG Anybody else have an inside scoop on this??!!

    • Rudy

      It was Renewal too.. I remember, they told me mine was not ready for 2-year contract.

    eastlake, chula vista (ca) has 1 left and sold 3 of them few days ago. would not sell it to me. appearently their manager had a notice to not sell it til the 12th and was in trouble for selling the 3 phones prior. haha. =/

  • C.RY.M.

    dont think id see myself actually holding and GRIPPIN IT that tightly especially in that position.

    • Chris Earle-Handley

      Wasn’t gripping it tightly at all – I hold it that way to watch netflix, play games etc. Hoping its just specific to my phone but holding it landscape in any way effects the wifi signal significantly

      Otherwise I frikkin LOVE this phone

      • Chris Earle-Handley

        Just got the following response from HTC:

        I understand your wifi signal drops when you hold the top portion of the phone. At present I do not know the status of this issue as HTC Technical support receives all device information and becomes fully engaged in the support of a device right at launch time, so I was able to get a Sensation and replicate your test however I do not know if this is an issue that can be addressed via software or if the WiFi signal will still function at those reception levels for a typical user. We may need to find if certain WiFi transmission channels are affected more than others.

        I would like to escalate your issue for early review within HTC Technical support

    Is the free day the 1`8th or the 19th?! I read on some post that T-Mobile is having a promo on Father’s Day, like they did last year. Father’s day is the 19th, not the 18th. Anybody hear anything different, and does anybody know if the Sensation is part of that promo? As for speed, it seems like it really depends on where you are with phones. My kids have the My ouch 4G and the speeds are all over the place here in Northern Cali.
