Leaked Walmart Pricing Tips Price Point For Galaxy Note II, Windows Phone 8 Devices

It’s safe to say that many of us are eagerly anticipating some of the newest handsets T-Mobile will let loose into the world in the coming weeks, and with our eagerness comes curiosity over pricing. Thankfully we’ve managed to answer at least part of the question with an early looking at Walmart’s pricing on the Galaxy Note II, Windows Phone 8X, Lumia 810, and LG Optimus L9.

Generally speaking, Walmart is less expensive than T-Mobile directly but when it comes to the Galaxy Note II, $299 is looking like a standardized price considering that’s the same price Sprint announced for their Note II variant. As with all early pricing, these amounts are subject to change:

  • Windows Phone 8X: $148.00
  • LG Optimus L9: $0.97
  • Nokia Lumia 810: $99.88
  • Samsung Galaxy Note II: $299

Let’s hope these prices hold true and mirror T-Mobile’s own pricing.

    Oh. I hope Cost-co has it for a little cheaper. My phone budget with my upgrade is around $260, and I don’t want to dip into another budget :o

    • Cuckold

      Cool story bro.

  • trickinit

    Woah, I forgot Walmart used to look like that.

    • Mr_Vault

      What do you mean, “used to”??? :-)

      • Smith

        WalMart changed logo, Re-Modeled most of their store and etc… WalMart stores doesn’t look like that picture anymore!

      • g2a5b0e

        I was thinking the same thing.

  • JB

    I’m willing to wager that the Note II will be 349.99 after $50 rebate if you go through T-Mobile!

    • Matlock

      I doubt it will be, because then people will not buy! Im thinking it will be 300 after $50 MIR!

      • JB

        … Remember T-Mobile’s subsidized pricing for the S III? Everybody was belly aching about the price, yet it became their top selling phone of all time. With that in mind, they have no reason to lower the price to the standard subsidy on this baby.

      • Agreed. They are not crazy. My buddy told me $349, anything higher people will walk.

    • Chris

      Doesn’t matter to me buying it off contract. I need to know THAT price and the freaking release date!!

      • JB

        Same here. I like staying off contract.

      • Mint

        TMobile has a very low cancellation fee of $200, too. I think a lot of people who want to go off contract with T-Mobile phones find it cheaper to go on contract for a month and then cancel instead of paying the off-contract price.

        • yozo

          Then who do u use for insurance?yozo

        • Erris

          Insurance on phones is for bozos :P

    • Spanky

      If the GS3 pricing is an indicator (80 higher than competitors, and that’s after a $50 rebate), I’ll go one step further and wager that it’ll be $379 after a $50 rebate.

    What does doors mean? Stores carrying the product?

    • nycplayboy78

      Thank you I am thinking the same thing??!! WTF does “doors” mean??!!

  • wtf is huawei summit?

  • What is full retail cost for the 16GB version JEEZ! Lol

    • nycplayboy78

      Ok??!! That’s the million dollar question….JEEZ!!!!

    • robert

      get a life and look down, there is already a price on newegg

  • Samsung Galaxy Note® II: Overview Tutorial – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jgcP9rE0VEk US Celluar come on T-MOBILE give us SOMETHING before 10/24 LOL

  • kim

    Tmo is known to sell new phones for rip off price.
    if you want the note 2 now for full price, newegg is selling it for $679.00 with code EMCJNJB39

    • kim
      • Absolutely no reason to buy this, it only has the 1900 band, there is zero reason to buy this over T-Mobile’s own unit.

        • kim

          the biggest mistake you can make money wise is buying products from tmo. that is unless you don’t know how to shop. same tmo brand new phone with warranty ( no contract)can be bought elsewhere for half the price of what tmo sells. just like the exhibit 4g, tmo sells for $329, amazon and others sell brand new no contract for $170 to $180. just be honest

        • rfgenerator

          The problem is that if you have a “classic” plan and are receiving a corporate discount you cannot get a subsidized phone anywhere but from a T-Mobile Corporate store or their website. It used to be a no brainer to keep the discount, but now with T-Mobiles new “grab your ankles” pricing model for new subsidized phones, it may make more sense to temporarily remove one’s corporate discount, purchase the phone from Walmart, and then reapply the discount.

        • Chris

          I’ve literally never seen this. On contract price, yes, other places are cheaper, but full retail prices are lowest at t-mobile and ridiculous at other places (like walmart etc)

        • Ford_Thundercougarfalconbird


        • nycplayboy78

          What are T-Mo’s “4G” frequencies? 1.7GHz or 2.1GHz??!!

        • Trevnerdio

          Both, or you can just have the 1.7GHz band for 3G. Refarmed frequency is 1.9GHz

        • mchan1

          TMo’s frequencies are used simultaneously… 1700/2100.
          ATT’s frequencies are 1900/2100.

          ATT’s frequencies are more common in other countries so you can get 3G service while traveling internationally but you’ll have trouble with TMo cellphones in getting 3G.

          Forget about using Verizon/Spring phones internationally unless the phone has a GSM slot.

          Nowadays, NO thanks to Apple, some phones may have a micro-SIM slot as well but they’re hard to find or just pricey.

      • Alex P.

        Did you read what it says there?
        “T-Mobile 2G”
        The international model that is being sold on newegg is NOT compatible with T-Mobile 3G and 4G.

    • Chris

      If you buy it there will 4g work on tmobile?

      • Alex P.

        No, 2G only.

  • Kweku Asafu-Adjaye

    LG Optimus LG? I sure hope you mean LG Optimus L9

  • UncleFan

    Whoa, whoa, whoa! What’s that line say about the HTC One S that got cut off?

    @davidtmonews:disqus do you have the whole screenshot?

    • I do, it doesn’t say anything notable.

  • Fish

    The HTC 8x is only $150? The off contract cost may exceed my expectations!

  • mreveryphone

    Off contract price please

    • These are the only prices we have, and remember they are for Walmart, not T-Mobile directly.

      • nycplayboy78

        But David you are Da Man…Get us these answers…NOW!!!!!

      • mreveryphone

        Understood, I’m just being facetious

  • I heard from a buddy of mine that walmart might get the Galaxy note 2 in stores before its released in tmobile stores.. if that is the case, ill be right in electronics dept :D

    • that doesn’t make sense at all.. No carrier would allow a device to be sold at a 3rd party before releasing it themselves. 3rd party carriers get them from t-mo who in turn gets it from the samsung im sure

      • thats what i thought but hes before released pictures to me with them in stock before release.. just to go on sale before release i doubt. but knowing that walmart will carry, should give a little more leyway of tmobile running short with the amount they will carry as well..

      • Andrea H.

        Actually the htc sensation 4G last year was released at walmart a few days before tmobile store I know cuz I bought it for $600 which tmo had a few days later for a bit cheaper full price

  • jelliottz

    I talk on a Note all day long
    Then I slide it into the jacket pocket of my suit. Have yet to.hear one person.or client say “that looks ridiculous.” Usually they say “what’s that” and “nice looking phone” and “can I try it.”

    All of those but not ridiculous.

    • Metromedical

      Thats an ignorant comment to make, almost all of our surgeons carry a galaxy Note. Im sure they wouldn’t take your clown opinions into account but cool stories.


      If you hold that thing to your ear your ridiculous. The only way I would use a note is with a bluetooth or a earbuds with a mic. No way you would catch me looking like tony montana with that thing!

  • $299 Note 2 + $200 ETF. Note 2 for only $500? Doubt T-Mo directly will price it that low. Probably $299 or $249 down payment on the Value plan and $349 on Classic.

    Just my guesses

  • The price of the L9 makes it seem like the device is a joke.

  • With their pricing like this, TMo will be a little bit more.

  • JJ Clark

    .97 seems about right for any LG product.

    • Spanky

      I’d pay 97 cents for the upcoming LG Nexus…not a penny more, though!

  • Christopher_McG

    T-Mobile pricing = $399 with $100 MIR or something even more ridiculous like $429.

    • Spanky

      Exactly what I’m thinking. $429 before a $50 rebate.

      • i sure hope not .. that’s fail if so.

    • T-mobile is not crazy enough to price a phone at a suubsidized tablet price.

      • taia03

        Yes they are. That is the reason I didn’t buy the SGS3 with them. That $329 was ludicrous.

  • Paul

    There wasn’t a date with these prices? Man!!!
    Well I hope these reflect the store prices as well. I can handle $300 for a Note 2. Just need to find where the White one will be sold.

    • thepanttherlady

      I think they really enjoy messing with us. :/ I’m getting the white one too. I’m going to buy a different color back to go with mine.

      • Paul

        It’s like waiting for the call from the person you like…or a text for the young’ons.
        I wonder what cases will be available on launch.

        • thepanttherlady

          Every time I’ve bought a new phone, they never have accessories. Grrrr! I just ordered two on Ebay a moment ago and now need to get a screen protector. Headed to PhantomSkinz now!

        • Paul

          OO what’d you get on ebay?!

        • thepanttherlady

          2 different flip case/stands and an aluminum brushed back.

        • Paul

          SHARE!! I’m cautious about buying before there’s a review.
          Plus they all say N7100.

        • thepanttherlady

          Those are the ones I’m buying:
          5.94 x 3.16 x 0.37 inches N7105
          5.95 x 3.17 x 0.37 inches N7100

        • Guest

          Is PhantomSkinz better then skinpea? Have u ever tried Skinpea or has anyone tried both? Im trying to figure out the best full body skin protector to order. Im not into cases cuz it adds to much bulk to a phone.

        • thepanttherlady

          Never tried skinpea. I’ve been hooked on Phantomskinz since my BB Curve days a looonnnnnggggggg time ago.

  • steveb944

    Any outlook on full retail price?

  • hector

    will get the note 2 with walmart, i was going to get my son the samsung galaxy s 4g with tmobile but it was going to cost me around $200 but then tmobile CS told me to go to walmart were i got it at only .99cents lol no red tape no need for shiping got the phone the same day and also got the $18 connection free taken off, so walmart will be were am going.

  • Josue

    97 cents for an LG phone? whaaat

  • Cupcake

    Lol…if Walmart is that cheap (or cheaper) then T-mobile’s prices are gonna be in the thousands (or close too it…LOL). I will never upgrade thru Tmo again cause of Big Blue’s pricing – more reasonable.

  • yozo

    Has anyone seen the current
    non-contract price of the Tmo SG3
    on Walmarts site?


  • WillNY

    What does the term ‘doors’ mean precisely in thtis context? If we are speaking about retail locations, which ones are they?


  • paul2834

    Has anyone had any success buying the Note II from Walmart yet? I’ve been calling every day since launch and the 3 around don’t have it.

    • Only 233 stores nationwide have them, so keep trying!
