It's approaching the time of year where we start looking for Christmas presents and a lot of the time it's easier to buy a phone for someone on contract than it is to buy the phone unlocked or outright. With the Nexus 4 launching soon carriers are going to have throw something big out there to get us to pony up for the next two years. T-Mobile then, would be the last carrier of choice then with their high prices compared to other networks however, Brief Mobile have learned that T-Mo will be dropping prices on a good number of phones in their line-up, including the Galaxy Note II. The giant phone will see a massive price drop from $369.99 to $249.99 on the network, making T-Mo the cheapest network for the phone now.
The rest of the price drops include the following phones:
- HTC One S: down from $149.99 to $99
- LG Optimus L9: down from $79.99 to $49.99 for new customers and fall to $29.99 for upgrades
- Samsung Galaxy Note II: down from $369.99 to $249.99
- Samsung Galaxy S Blaze: down from $99.99 to $49.99
- Samsung Galaxy S II: down from $149.99 to $79.99
- Samsung Galaxy S III: down from $279.99 to $129.99
There are some other phones included in the price drop as well but with the HTC One S just $99 even the best phones are cheap this year. There's no telling how long the price drop will last or if it's permanent but it starts tomorrow so, get ready.
With a line-up like this it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas over at T-Mobile and with the S III down to just $129.99 these are some pretty good prices, especially for the network that's been known for selling devices more than anyone else. When it comes down to it, T-Mobile might not have any 4G LTE right now but their HSPA+ network is a lot better than Sprint's 3G network and the speeds are pretty acceptable, couple that with unlimited data and it could be the right network for you but, it all comes down to whether or not you get coverage where you're going to need it.
