    How good of a deal is this, since it’s the old galaxy? I already have a Galaxy III, but I’m just curious.

    • GwapoAko

      For Value Plan customers.. If you buy from Tmobile website it is $549.

  • brian

    Or you could get a way better Galaxy Nexus for $50 more and 2-day shipping lol

    • Ungibbed

      In means of hardware, both the Gnex and the S2 are well matched. Each phone has it’s better features and drawbacks. 8MP shooter on the S2 vs 5MP on the Gnex. Snapdragon S3 dual core vs. the TI Omap. Lower resolution Super AMOLED plus vs. 720p pen tile.

      Tit for tat really.

      • bleeew

        But the GS2 is Samoled Plus, so doesn’t it have more pixels?

  • Paul

    I guess it is a good deal, in the sense that T-Mobile would sell it for a couple hundred more. But it is the S2, and there are better phones coming out before the year is over. 

    • Tim

      More like there are already better phones out. From Samsung alone there’s the S3 and Gnex

      • Paul

        I mean that is available for the non-contract plans. 

        Of COURSE I’m aware of the S3, and the Note 2 coming later this year. 

  • GwapoAko

    I think Tmobile should also lower their price on their website to encourage value plan subcribers. This is really a very very good deal! :0) Go Tmobile!!!

  • Eanfoso

    This is Good just to even get the phone and the 30$ so i can use it with my regular tmobile service, in another words: brand new galaxy s2 for 329 not bad at all!

    • Bud

      Plus tax

    • achusaysblessyou

      Get a Galaxy Nexus for $349 on Google Play Store, but do note, there’s no wifi calling with the Galaxy Nexus, but it’s a much better phone, even if you consider that it’s a Nexus phone (best support)

    • Rob

      I don’t know if this is true, but I’ve been told repeatedly by T Mobile that if you wanna signed up for that 30 dollar 5 gigabyte plan that’s only for new customers and you have to get it at Walmart. Walmart has also told me that and said that if I want to buy it I need to get a new SIM card and a new phone number. I can’t do it as an existing customer.

      • GwapoAko

        Yes you to need to buy the SIM card to because they sell it on the monthly 4G plan. You do not have to use the sim card that you will buy. Just use your SIM card from Tmobile if you already have one.

  • Frank31

    if I buy this GSII can I put my contract sims card and have it work?  It doesn’t make much sense to pay top of the line prices if this lower price will just do

    • jonathan3579

      Yes you can. Welcome to the world of retail where things hardly make sense.

      • Frank31

        thanks for the info.  Either this one or a few more $$$ and get the Nexus or wait for better deals as tmobile has to offer something to counter the iphone craze…

        • jonathan3579

          I personally went from the Galaxy S2 to the Galaxy Nexus. However, I went from the Galaxy Nexus to the Galaxy S3 two days ago, lol. If you’re looking to stay off-contract then these two phones are your best bet. (But I prefer the Galaxy Nexus to the Galaxy S2.)

  • sandwichmasta

    This seems like a pretty decent deal, but just how outdated is the s2? Like leagues below the nexus?

    • achusaysblessyou

       Uses same CPU/GPU combo as the Galaxy Nexus (Qualcomm S3 chip). However, the Galaxy Nexus has Jelly Bean and no TouchWiz (which for me is a good thing).

      Also the Galaxy Nexus has a worse camera, but a 720p screen while this thing has 800×480 screen (boo!). This phone does have Wi-Fi calling support on Tmobile while the Galaxy Nexus does not (that’s one of my major requirements on a phone).

      btw, wifi calling lets you make calls over wifi no matter where you are (you could be in the jungles of madagascar and as long as you have wifi, you can make calls/send texts, but it’ll count against your minutes, but won’t count as international roaming)

      • fixxmyhead

        way off. galaxy nexus has a TI OMAP 4460 NOT an s3 chip. i hope ur not that “dev” i remember from last week claiming he knows about SoC

        • achusaysblessyou

           I stand corrected but nevertheless, both are the previous gen chips (ARM A9 based).

      • sandwichmasta

         Ah I see, the 480p screen is a bit of a deal breaker seeing as how big the screen is. Might as well get a one s used for around the same price. Pretty good deal regardless though

        • fixxmyhead

          the screen is fine. i have it and it looks super clear. my wife has the nexus and when u compare both u can see the pixels on the GN due to the screen being pentile. also the blacks look purpleish when its on the lowest screen brightness. the s2 is 480×800 but the super AMOLED+ screen looks just as clear (yea icons look a littlle bit bigger due to the resolution but screen is very clear) and u cant see any pixels or anything

      • Aaron Peromsik

        Vonage Mobile could be the ticket, for outgoing calls to US numbers. Never really got the point of having Wifi calling minutes count against my T-Mobile prepaid plan.

    • Paul

      No, should research the two before purchasing either. 

  • Kengozninya

    I was told you have to pay monthly for the phone, basically having a contract. Tmobile is infamous for these hidden stipulations and contract extensions without notification.

    • GwapoAko

      Nope you do not have to pay monthly!!! The $329 is the full price from Walmart.com. Just go to walmart.com.

    • gueston

      I doubt that’s true. That’s not how prepaid work.

    • MatthewMurawski

      monthly4G is strictly no contract

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

    Wow, that’s a sweet deal… Damn.

  • Jamie

    it’s interesting that they’re promoting the Walmart family Brands and not so much a T Mobile prepaid plans. 1 question I have is this a plus 42 or plus 21 speed? I’ve been trying Galaxy Nexus and have been so disappointed at the 21 speed which basically is 3 G. I average 2-3 megabytes per second and the phone constantly says 3 G. T-Mobile rep told me it’s only a 2 G phone but I know that’s wrong. But then the rep had never heard of Google Music either so I don’t know what that says

    • http://pharaohtechblog.blogspot.com/ Conan Kudo (ニール・ゴンパ)

      The Galaxy S II is an HSPA+42 device. The Galaxy Nexus is an HSPA+21 device.

    • MatthewMurawski

      It is impossible to get 3 megabytes per second on HSPA+ 21 because the theoretical peek speed is 21 Mbps and 3 megabytes = 24 megabits. Despite that, the Galaxy S2 is a HSPA+ 42 Mbps phone.

  • Radiohead777

    the galaxy nexus doesn’t have S3 cpu… it has a 1.2 dual core TI OMAP cpu with  a PowerVR SGX540 gpu

    so its NOT like the galaxy s2….. 

    • whosaidwhat

      That doesn’t make the S3 or S2 necessarily better. Google has done a great job of optimizing Jelly Bean for the Galaxy Nexus hardware. You will be surprised at how good the damn thing is…I have one. I bought two S2′s for my mom and sister this past Christmas and my Nexus runs circles around both. Even with the outdated hardware.

      • fixxmyhead

        i have an s2 (by choice. stock is boring) and my wife a galaxy nexus and yea its fast but please dont say it runs circles around the s2. s2 is still a good fast phone

      • custom1

        Could it be less bloatware on the Nexus making it faster? 

  • LOV3BAS3DCUBANO

    Ok if I get this deal, can I change from the 30 plan to the 50 dollar monthly 4G? The price for the phone sounds good but the Walmart plan doesn’t have enough mins for me

    • GwapoAko

      You cannot change from $30 to $50, however you can just buy a new sim card that you will use for th4 $50 monthyl 4G plan. Just throw your 30 plan sim card. Problem solved!

      • http://www.thatsitguys.com/ Meleniumshane90

        You’re mistaken… you can call it in and switch the plan over to the $50 plan. You cannot, however, do the opposite and switch from a $50 to a $30 5GB/text/100m

  • Babo

    t-mobile is the stupidest company i have ever seen .now eveybody who has a contract and dont want to buy the gaalxy for 499.99 without extending the contract .they can just go buy this and put their sim card in it or better yet people who want to use it in another country can just buy it unlock it and send it there .great job t-mobile kepp losing money

    • Scarfacemario

      I don’t know if we should take you seriously with all the grammar mistakes.

      • GwapoAko

        LOL :0)

      • redman12

         You shouldn’t.. Babo means stupid in Korean

        • Babo

          first of all babo is not an actual name or even a word .second off all who cares what it means in korea this is not korea so go screw yourself and korea

        • redman12

          You still sound stupid no matter how you slice it..

      • Babo

        last time i checked this wasen,t a grammar class

    • Paul

      I’ve failed to see what your point was. 

      EVERY phone on a carrier can be unlocked and used on another network, so long as the network has the same technology. 

      I think I got cancer from your comment. 

      • Babo

        My point is that this phone is 499.99 without contract and now people can buy it for 299.99 and T-Mobile will lose the money

        • JBLmobileG1

          Actually they are smart. If Apple does put a block on the sale of the Samsung Galaxy S2 at least this way they can get rid of their stock quickly without having to worry about sitting on extra inventory. So for being such a stupid company that you claim they are, you obviously didn’t think of their strategy. They will make more money this way, even if it means that they’ll take a hit at selling the contract phones at the outright price. It’s better to make a dollar than to hold onto something that will be worthless to you possibly in a few months because you won’t be able to sell it. And honestly this phone is coming into the age where most people will either spend the extra money on the S3 or just upgrade to the S2 for cheap because they don’t want to spend a lot in the first place or still want a decent phone at a fairly cheap price to upgrade, perhaps even for free.

        • Paul

          I see your point and you make a good one as well. They may be clearing the inventory for the Apple case, the S2 is listed as a device to be blocked, or to clear it for the S3 and Note 2 sales. 

          It seems like a stupid move, but it might be a crazy move to protect them from taking a huge loss. This kind of offer may not happen again anytime soon

        • Babo

          that might be true that they want to clear the inventory but the thing that i dont understand is that they still sell the phone for 499.99 in the corporate store and online but yet you can buy the phone for 299.99 from walmart .i work in a corporate store and i dont have an answer when people ask me how come walmart is cheaper than an actual t-mobile store and by $200 dollars.

        • Paul

          I’m with you. I bought mine as an upgrade at an electronics store for less than what it was in the T-Mobile store. Makes no sense. 

  • galaxy dude

    I think I still have 2weeks to bring back my lg nitro hd 4G lte. I am going to get a Samsung galaxy ll on tmobile monthly 4G. On my way to
    wall marts

    • Qbancelli

      Please lets us know how it went if you can. I also want to get on this but there isn’t a Walmart in NYC.

      • Mikes433

    Good to see T-Mobile mark down the price of older phones for pre-paid and value customers. List prices are incredibly inflated; it most likely costs $50 to manufacture such phones in China.

    Other deals available now include Galaxy S 4G at app. $219.99 and Galaxy S Blaze at $299.99, both with free $50 refill card. See here:

    • TBN27

      You mean 50 dollars to manufacture them in South Korea.

  • MatthewMurawski

    I really don’t see what’s so great about stock, besides the no bloatware. Android is all about customization, and some skins are actually really good. It’s just like pizza. Plain is great, but some toppings are really good, too.

    • g2a5b0e

      That’s actually a pretty good analogy & one that I haven’t heard yet, but I would argue that it’s slightly off. Custom UIs are more like specialty pizzas, rather than pizza toppings. Most of them seem to have at least one ingredient that you just don’t like.

      • MatthewMurawski

        I like to view it like if there’s something you don’t like about the UI, you just like that topping a little bit less.

  • WirelessRefugee

    I was looking for an SGS 2 for my GF. I was hoping that since the SGS III came out that  on the used market it would drive the price down on the SGS2. (IMO there’s not enough difference between the 2 and 3 justifying $450 for the SGS 3.)

    I checked the local Craigs List and was able to score an SGS II with a 16 GB Class 10 chip, for $200. The guy needed money to buy a game console (and when we did the deal he told me he’s an iPhone fan and never could get used to the SGS II’s huge proportions.)

    So this deal for $300, that sounds sweet to me since the SGS II is a fantastic phone and IMO it will remain significant for a long time, just as much as the HD2 stayed relevant for years (with Android on it, of course).

    Sidenote: With Apple trying to halt sales of the SGS II, maybe U.S. retailers are looking to dump remaining inventories, so that if the Judge did issue an injunction halting sales it would be a “so what” since Samsung and retailers have moved on to the SGS III. To be sure, the SGS III debut was probably timed to replace the SGS II, in the event Samsung lost the lawsuit.

    Perhaps another reason for this price break is to respond to Straight Talk’s BYOP (Bring Your Own Phone) $45 unlimited everything plan (that uses AT&T or T-Mo towers). I’m assuming that T-Mobile is making a big push into prepaid, so it makes sense that TMOUS has to address what its prepaid competitors are doing.

    Lastly, of course, whenever a new iPhone debuts T-Mobile always runs a promotion to provide an alternative to customers sitting on the fence.

  • ceegii63

    i actually saw this the day it started 3 days ago when my mom wanted a SGS2 like my sisters but saw the price so i checked out the Exhibit 2 4G at walmart then i saw the SGS2 prepaid deal

    • GwapoAko

      Ayos! hehehe

  • steveb944

    This is ridiculous, it’s cheaper to go with no contract than a contract. Amazing

  • http://www.thatsitguys.com/ Meleniumshane90

    Wow… you guys won’t be getting any news from us anymore.

    Has anyone been able to actually find this deal? I’ve checked like 15 WalMarts and have come to the realization that this phone is out of stock everywhere.
