No Annual Contract Samsung Galaxy S II at Walmart (9/4/12)

Today, T-Mobile and Walmart announced a national retail exclusive of the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S™ II as a no annual contract kitted option, providing a premium smartphone experience at a discounted price for no annual contract customers. Now available, the Galaxy S II costs $299.00 when paired with a T-Mobile Monthly4G no annual contract plan of $30 per month or higher.

The Monthly4G $30 per month plan offers unlimited Web, with the first 5 GB at up to 4G speeds; unlimited text; and 100 minutes of talk, with 10 cents per minute after the first 100 minutes. In addition, Monthly4G plans require no annual contract, no credit check and no deposit, offering great value and flexibility to customers.

With the addition of the Galaxy S II to the lineup of no annual contract devices offered at Walmart, customers have access to premium devices, fast nationwide 4G network speeds and affordable service plan prices – all without an annual contract.

The Galaxy S II is also available through Walmart’s Family Mobile service, a monthly, no-annual-contract wireless plan powered by T-Mobile’s nationwide network. The Walmart Family Mobile Unlimited Talk, Text and Web plan is $45 per month for the first line and $35 per month for additional lines, and provides unlimited access to Web surfing, data and social media for all lines on the account (base plan includes the first 250MB per month at up to 3G speeds). Available at Walmart stores nationwide and on Walmart.com, Walmart Family Mobile was designed with families in mind and is one of the best value options available on any national carrier.

Currently, T-Mobile services, as well as a wide range of smartphones and handsets, are available at Walmart stores nationwide and on Walmart.com.

    If this is sold at all like the way T-Mobile/Wal-Mart sold the Samsung Exhibit 2 4G (since renamed the Galaxy Exhibit 4G) I will be all over this. I bought two almost a year ago for $200 apiece and activated them on my postpaid Classic family plan. While I like the Galaxy S3 (the top phone on T-Mobile currently), it really doesn’t provide a huge upgrade over the GS2…at least not to me. Faster dual-core processor, but the dual core on the GS2 isn’t a slouch. AOKP JB is out for the GS2, and I know that if JB flies on my Kindle Fire it’ll be even better on the GS2. The camera is incrementally better on the GS3 vs the GS2 as well, with most improvements being made in software, not hardware. The screen is slightly larger, with better resolution…and that is the only real benefit that I see. I can see myself buying 2 GS2s, rooting them out-of-the-box, slapping AOPK JB on them, and calling it a day until sometime next year. I’ll still have my upgrades available and my contract expired, so I can then see what T-Mobile’s LTE network amounts to and upgrade to an LTE phone if I like it…and jump ship to another carrier if I don’t.

    Why would you get this when you can get an unlocked Galaxy Nexus for just $50 more ($349)?
