Let's not forget Walmart will slap X% of tax on the price tag as well

"Tax"????? Are you serious??? Taxes are not company specific,. They are determined by the address where the item is shipped/where you live. That means that you would face the same taxes either way buddy. Every company legally authorized to sell anything in this country require sales taxes... Look it up.

Anyone know if you keep a grandfathered unlimited data plan when you upgrade at Walmart?

Yeah, I know at the Walmart where we work which shouldn't be any different, if you are grandfathered in under AT&T or Verizon you are allowed to keep it. Just make sure that they have a good staff at your Walmart and they know what there doing, I've heard so many horror stories about peoples plans getting switched or features getting deleted or added because people at other Walmart's not knowing what they are doing.

Well if I were you I wouldn't risk letting someone at Walmart mess that all up. I sure as heck didn't want to take the risk and it was worth more then 50 bucks to me to keep my current unlimited data plan, so I said screw the 50 bucks and just went straight to AT&T.

WOW... $1.11... I know it cost more to write up this article than the savings that Wal-Mart offers over Amazon.

Its a one stop place for a rifle, ammo, Budweiser, bait, and the best cotton picking Android phone this south of the Mason Dixion Line for the Southern Gentlemen!
At least your cashier isn't a hipster douche with Real 3D glasses with popped out lens.

As I reported this morning, I went to my local Wal-Mart (and I live in a SMALL town in Georgia) early this morning and they had the Galaxy S II for $148.88 with a contract.
