Samsung Galaxy S II for T-Mobile now available for $299 without contract from Walmart

Zachary Lutz

If you've ever thought it was impossible to score an excellent smartphone alongside a prepaid plan, it's time to reconsider the assumption. Just like the Galaxy S II will soon arrive at Boost Mobile for $360, those willing to brave the crowds at Walmart will save some cash with T-Mobile's version of the handset, which now sells for $299 -- in comparison, T-Mobile currently sells the Galaxy S II for $550 outright. As one caveat, the phone must be sold with a no-contract plan of at least $30, but one can discontinue service whenever they desire. If your wallet is now tingling, you'll find the full PR after the break.
