Samsung Galaxy Note, New myTouch Devices Now Available From T-Mobile

Right on cue for August 8th, T-Mobile’s website now shows the Samsung Galaxy Note and “New” T-Mobile myTouch and myTouch Q as available for purchase. We’ve already taken a look at the Galaxy Note and while the device itself may begin to show a bit of age, it definitely remains one of the best devices Samsung has on the market.

The new myTouch devices are perfect for the first-time smartphone buyer as an introduction to the Android platform. There’s plenty to love, just make sure this phone goes to the right kind of buyer, and not to the power user.

We’ll have full previews of both myTouch devices up later this week. For now, go and get your Galaxy Note from T-Mobile.

    • AM3RIG

      tempt!

    The “new” MyTouch looks like the same old MyTouch from 2 years ago. I don’t even really see any update in the features or specs because Ice Cream Sandwich. What happened to progression? I know the MyTouch line is not supposed to be super high end, but come on now.

  • Monster

    Really I waited to pay 249.99 for a 6 month old device SMH

  • bonnierz

    Has anyone been able to buy the galaxy note (at full price) without the 2 yr contract? Tmobile rep told me this morning it was not being sold without a 2 yr plan.  I was willing to pay the high cost and then buy the $30 / month internet only plan, but no go.

    • GwapoAko

      Just ask someone who has an account with Tmo to buy it for you :0)

    • GwapoAko

      Just go to walmart wireless select Tmobile and view all phones , then select Gnote replacement phone $349.99 hurry before it is too late!!!!Good luck!

      • Lilwill

        Give us a link bro

        • GwapoAko

          See above!! hurry!!! before it is too late!!!

  • JBLmobileG1

    Looks as though Tmobile put a decent price on the phones. Which in turn means you will probably be able to get the Note at Walmart for $199, if they carry it, and the new MyTouchs for possibly free. Just a guess though. Still not bad deals. While I am not a fan of the myTouch phones they are perfect for beginners who want a smart phone without paying a lot. As for the Note, sure it may have been around a while but it does support Tmobile’s 42Mbps network. Honestly I was expecting it to be $300, although that would have been over priced.

  • MarcusDW

    Wait wait wait wait.  Walmart is selling it (the Note) online FREE for new customers and only $29.99 for UPGRADES!!??

    UPDATE: So much for that. They pulled the device off of the site just that quick. Somebody fkd up!

    UPDATE 2: I FOUND IT AGAIN! http://wireless.walmart.com/eCommerce/SpecialOffer.aspx?cid=36575_400611c2d3444e61b4929eb75e409da2

  • needgoodQWERTY

    Cool, any news on the galaxy s blaze q yet? Last update was out would be out on August 15th, but that doesn’t seem likely now… I need some QWERTY goodness!

    • http://tmonews.com David

      Any and all updates are immediately posted the blog, I keep telling everyone this, you never need to ask about new phone news!

  • Bobby Digital

    Would it kill you to report anything on the Samsung t159? When did the blog turn into TMO news for smart phones only blog? I know I’m not the only person that is interested, your last post on the note had people wondering what pricing was for the t159 and thier comments, in this case questions, went ignored.
    I look to your blog for the best source for t-mobile news, please let’s keep it that way.

  • GwapoAko

    THE GNOTE is priced at $349.99 on Walmart.com replacement or without contract!

      • GwapoAko

        Bwahhhahahaha!!! Good for us!!!! shhhhh..this is our secret!!!

        • MarcusDW

          Since you ordered first, let me know if they catch on and your order is rejected.

      can’t they legally void the sale or raise the price authorization ? 

  • Ankster

    Does the 4g work in houston since the fone doesnt have 1700mhz network but has the 1900 spectrum?

    • GwapoAko

      yes it will work with Tmo 4G :0)

      • Ankster

        So the phone has 1700 mhz then?

  • Adla

  • Spartan087_

    Just ordered from Wal Mart. Took a few tries though; It was as if it didn’t want to process.

    All is good now, should arrive Friday. $30 FTW!?

    • Intekmdma

      Did you get a ship order confirmation already?

  • Martin

    Wow tmobile released the galaxy note I totally forgot about the note since AT&T had exclusive rights to it but 249.99 is to high 199.99 is much better

    • GwapoAko

      Just go to Walmart website..free with contract and $349 off contract!

      • marvin79

        I cant seem to find it on the walmart page. do you have a link?

  • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    Has anyone gotten an updated other than ‘validating’ on the wal-mart website?

    • GwapoAko

      Yeah!!! Order Validated!!!

      • guest

        I got an email. Confirmation about its ready to ship just waiting on tmobile’s approval..how long did it take you to get your tracking #?

        • predation

          why wait on tmobile??
          did you upgrade?

          i did two orders of (2) phones since the check out wouldn’t let me order more than 2 without a plan…

          hopefully both orders go through and they don’t cancel!

        • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

          Agreed, I didn’t upgrade.  I did replacement device…so there should be no need for T-Mobile to step in.  Right?

        • predation

          shouldn’t be.

        • guest

          Oh I upgraded that’s why..I hope it ships

        • Mike

           on the walmart wireless site you can chat with a specialist…they helped me get everything straight…

        • guest

          thank you mike..chatted with them..it got approved so just waiting for tracking # 

      • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

        When did you order?

        • GwapoAko

          9:00AM Mountain Time

    • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

      The email says the order don’t be charged until it is confirmed but why is it already pending on my credit card? This will be good to have it for this price point

      • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

        Yep, they took it as soon as I hit submit, lol.   But if something goes wrong, it will release back to you.

        • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

          Do they email shipping confirmations or no? Let’s see how this plays out
          Je’Cir’e

        • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

          Site says they will.  I ordered, and it is waiting for shipping.

  • predation

    thanks dude! i ordered 4 lol. 

    i got confirmation from walmart, but the email shows “number to be assigned”

    what does that mean, i thought that these were off contract phones??

    • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird

      Exactly, it isn’t tied to any number. If it were an on contract upgrade it would have your current number. 

  • Jonathan

    Why is it that when I try to order the Samsung Galaxy Note from Wal-Mart’s website, it tells me that it will be $349.99?  I am eligible for an upgrade, it verified that I did and showed the price of the phone as $29.99.

    • Eanfoso

      Then get it from whomever told you, not wal mart

  • Miguel R

    How would you guys compare the Galaxy Note to the Samsung Galaxy Slll?

    • J-Hop2o6

      Can’t really compare them, but they are both made by Samsung and both are plastic. But the Note is a bit larger and a bit slower, but has a Wacom Pen/Stylus tho if you’re into that. It has a slot for it inside of the phone.

  • predation

    fuck! 2 of my 4 phones were cancelled!

  • Mike

    great news…$29 upgrade from walmart ordered just now…hope they dont screw my contract up now…lol

    • Mike

       Also got Tmo retentions to send me a 32gb SIII for $49 ….great day today

      • Miguel R

        How you do that Mike? Whats the # to call?

        • Mike

           i called 611 and threatened to cancel my service … pissed since they stuck me with a g2x the last few years

  • Znny23

    Called up customer loyalty (9 years here) and told them I see the price is 30$ on walmart with a 2 year upgrade. Ended up getting the note for free with overnight shipping and upgrade and tax waived. Awesome! :)

    • Miguel R

      what # did you dial? thanks

      • Znny23

        611 contract etc…

    • Mike

       they wouldnt budge on the note for me after they gave me the s3 for so cheap… been with Tmo since the voicestream days…

      • Th3problem17

        are they supposed to give you a huge discount when you just got one  everytime something comes out? 

  • predation

    damn… 1 0f 2 orders got cancelled. 
    walmart online cart won’t allow more than 2 for each order unless a plan is picked. 

  • Taron19119

    Ok so what happen to all y’all saying it’s to late coming out on t-mobile and waste going to buy it I see u all buying it y’all just like to the complain

    • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

      People are gonna sell them I think

    • predation

      dude. at $350 off contract… no brainer man. 

    • Boricua Boy88

      I told everyone they were spoiled hypocrites, looks like they’re proving me right… People love to complain for no reason at all, just to make a scene. So immature.

  • marvin79

    I see some people are ordering from WalMart´s website, but I cant seem to find it on their page. anyone has a link? let me know

    • http://twitter.com/catdecorator Wilma jeanne

      they took it down, and are sending cancellation , to those that were just replacing another phone or off contract, but upgrading or new contract is different, i have not received my cancellation email yet, i was getting it as a replacement phone

  • bonnierz

    Order validated! yay!

  • http://www.youtube.com/#/mrjlwilliams J. Williams

    DAMN!!! My order just got cancelled, lol Says I did not pick a plan or carrier, WHAT? lol I guess it was not meant to be, oh well.

  • predation

    whats with the ‘”T-Mobile charges will be billed separately” part on the confirmation email??

    crap my second order is in “validation limbo”

  • bonnierz

    oh-oh, i can no longer look at my order, getting an error code

  • GwapoAko

    My Order has just been shipped!!!

    • Intekmdma

      You were one of the first to order it!  Congrats. Mine got shipped too.

  • MarcusDW

    My order got cancelled!!!  Not surprised though.

    • GwapoAko

      Sorry to hear that bro!

  • Sasha!

    I called retentions twice now and they keep offering me the phone for $279.99 both times. But I have a full upgrade. So confused.

  • Mandy

    My contract is up 249.99 for tmobile note. Or 249.99 for AT&T tried lte on it and it’s fast I’m thinking about leaving tmobile and going to att but don’t kno wat to do

    • Mloudt

      why don’t you just do what i do im on the monthly 4g plan, contract free with the same coverage and free voice roaming. i buy any phone i want off craigslist and just put my prepaid sim in it and it works perfectly. it seems like you want to rush and sign another contract for no reason take time to think about it more get prepaid sim and you were willing to spend around 250 right, well they got samsung galaxy 2 going for around that rate and if you negotiate with the person maybe you can get a better deal. with the release of these 3 devices mainly the note people that aren’t eligable for an uprade to get this phone will more than likely sell whatever phone they have at a good deal on craigslist in order to make a few hundred to buy the note offf contract. usually when a new high end device comes out on t-mobile people look to sell their phone for cheaper in order to buy new released devices off contract. i bet you anything if you go on craigslist you will be able to find a sg2 htc one s or sg3 for a good deal. this is just a suggestion until you figure out what you want to do.

  • Yoza

    Why did TmoUSA release only a limited qty of the Note to certain Tmo stores?  Some Tmo stores in my area only received 4 of them.  OK I know I can just wait another week, and most TmoUSA stores will receive an abundance of the Notes.  But that only means most people will see the Note2 being released even closer to their Note purchase date, and also most people can easily find the Note at AT&T if they decide to stop waiting for the Note.
    Could someone explain the idea behind TmoUSA marketing to me?  I am sure TmoUSA have a point of looking like they’ve sold initial quantities of the Note and how great it is to make customer wait even longer to see it in the TmoUSA stores after its long awaited release date…

    • http://www.facebook.com/unfazedrebel Jé Be (Here but Gone)

      My local stores here in Ohio I guess are not corporate stores just auth dealers so they are ‘fighthing’ as they said to carry it store level…LOL

  • Yozo

    On August 17th, 2012, a local Costco store is suppose to receive the Tmobile Note.
    The Sales Rep didn’t have pricing.  So I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled to see what deal they have.
