Blackberry Curve 9360 Appears On T-Mobile Prepaid Marketing Material

Is the Blackberry Bold 9900 or the Blackberry Torch 9860 not exciting enough for you? Well good news as the Blackberry Curve 9360 already rumored to hit T-Mobile shelves September 14th has popped up on a marketing poster for T-Mobile prepaid devices. Marked at $229.99 for prepaid purchase we expect a postpaid two year contract price to appear somewhere around the magical $100 dollar mark.

Unfortunately there isn’t a whole lot to learn from this poster that we don’t already know but a 5-megapixel camera with 3G capability and a hopeful price right around $100 would be nicely welcomed on the Magenta network. Just a hint T-Mobile, don’t get overzealous with the pricing here like you did *cough cough* on the Blackberry Bold 9900.

    blackberry is turning up more in the low-end prepaid market.  that’s a indication that they’ve lost market share to high end devices from apple and android.

      Fair enough comment Keith, but I disagree.  IMO it’s because prepaid is becoming big. Prepaid is simply another way of saying the U.S. doing things the European way.

      The BlackBerry Curve is offered on a number of prepaid carriers and has been for months.  So this going to T-Mobile’s prepaid offerings makes sense, if T-Mobile wants to remain competitive in the prepaid market.

      Note: A nice feature of T-Mobile prepaid is that a prepaid SIM will work in any T-Mobile phone, even the high end models.

      I bought my mom a 1000 minute prepaid SIM for her to use in a $20 eBay Nokia feature phone (even that phone is a challenge for her to use.  LOL).

      Before I gave her the phone I tried the prepaid SIM in all my T-Mobile phones (SGS 4G, Optimus T, Slide)  It worked great and I was able to use the phones to access the Net via WiFi, and get e-mail too.

      T-Mobile’s prepaid prices have to go way down before I consider using prepaid as a backup phone or replacing my Virgin Mobile Motorola Triumph  at $40 monthly. That 1000 minute SIM cost me $110 (including a BOGUS $10 activation fee.  Sheesh, they get you coming and going).

        You realize that 1000 mins is good for one year right… as opposed to your 40 x 12 .

    c’mon 9860……Hopefully the UMA “update” will be available in short order for all 3 phones, otherwise it doesn’t help those that currently rely on it.

    Pricing on the 9900 is still annoying. I probably would’ve bought one if it was 200, like it should be.

  • Asder24

    That’s actually a pretty good price off contract. My folks need a new phone and since TMobile has decided to stop making feature phones adults would want to use, I may buy the prepaid kit and then pop in their SIM card. Btw anyone know why buying a kit is sometimes cheaper than just buying the same phone off contract? The Optimus was advertised for $189+ but the kit for the same phone was usually around $150.

    • Dude Lebowski

      Yeah I hear you but those units such as Optimus T, BlackBerry Curve, Sidekick 4G, Galaxy S 4G etc… are all refurbished and pre-owned units in the prepaid offerings.

        That’s what I intially thought but the Optimus and BB Curve weren’t indicated as refurbished whereas the GS4G and Sidekick were.

          I wondered the same thing… Is the full price (because I am just going to swap sim cards) $229 or $287?

        The curve is brand new I just bought one for my Dad.

    That’s the price if you buy a 50$ prepaid kit with it. Otherwise its 287.50. Or probably 299$ postpaid no contract. And its new in box in store always!

    • None

      Why would I pay 299 when I could pay 287.50.  What am I missing?

        There is always a slight discount for prepaid. Like the flip phones that are 70 on no contract. Or 38 for prepaid. Doesn’t make sense but its the wireless business model.

    will this phone really be on thier prepaid list of phones too? cause i would like to stay with tmobile, but not under contract.My contract ends sept 23rd.

    • Gwapo

      If you are going to prepaid..you have to pay $50 plus $10 for the BB Service..I think it is better for you to switch to value plan..although you have a contract it will be much cheaper in the long run…
