Along with the message that T-Mobile will be dropping the SIM Starter Kit to $0 for prepaid customers came news that the company is also dropping the price of one of its popular mid-range smartphones. It’s another deal aimed squarely at the prepaid customers, offering them the chance to pick up the LG Optimus L90 for just $49.99. The only caveat is that you need to buy it with an eligible prepaid plan that’s $40 or higher. But still, it’s a pretty sweet deal if you’re in the market for a decent low-cost prepaid device.
All in, customers walk out having paid $89.99 (plus taxes). That’s $49.99 for the phone, $40 for the first month of the prepaid plan, and $0 for the SIM Starter Kit. It’s a substantial saving on the previous all-in price of $154. From what we can tell from the memo, and from speaking with sources, this is in-store only and it’s available at corporate, branded stores and authorized T-Mo dealers.
