T-Mobile launches Samsung Galaxy S II at Walmart stores

Ready for another prepaid smartphone from 2011? T-Mobile prepaid is the latest to jump on the trend, offering the Samsung Galaxy S II exclusively at Walmart retail outlets nationwide. This comes almost two weeks after Boost Mobile added the Galaxy S II to its own lineup. T-Mobile and Walmart will offer it a bit cheaper, though, at $299 off-contract. It is compatible with the Walmart Family Mobile plan or any other Monthly 4G plan. You can get it now, but not at T-Mobile’s website. Again, this is a Walmart retail exclusive.

    How does this phone compare to the one you can buy directly from Google (Nexus) for $350?

    Thanks. I thought being an older phone, it wouldn’t be as good, but I guess I should consider it when I decide to toss my Exhibit II 4G.

    @clocks no problem its an amazing phone, look at specs and reviews, I wanted to get the galaxy exhibit 4g (the new name for it) but I stayed with my blackberry. But t mobile 4g is amazing in my area! But there’s also another phone to consider, its the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4g. It like the GS2 just smaller at 4 inches. Its on tmobile website at $300, but it comes with a $50 refill card. And this phone came out march of this year I think not sure. Also you can get the $30 plan with it on tmobile.com, so your not limited just to walmart.

    Yep, I have the $30 plan through Tmo. I had it for a month a while back, then tried wanted to try Republic Wireless, then later Ting. RW sucked, and Ting was good, but the numbers didn’t work for me. So the past 3-4 months I’ve been back with Tmo. The 100min limit concerns me at times, but so far I’ve been able to stay under.
