All AT&T phones on Amazon except for HP iPAQ Glisten priced at $0.01

All AT&T phones on Amazon except for HP iPAQ Glisten priced at $0.01
Although it's a penny more than what LetsTalk was offering a week ago by  making all of their available in-stock AT&T phones in their lineup for free, Amazon is following a simialr path with all of their phones except one. The only sole handset to resist the $0.01 price tag is none other than the HP iPAQ Glisten – strangely enough, we really can't say why it's the only one with a hefty $49.99 price point. Regardless of that, new customers can choose to take a pick of the litter – smartphones like the LG eXpo, HTC Tilt 2, BlackBerry Bold 9000, and Motorola BACKFLIP can all be had for a penny! So if you're in the market of signing a contract with AT&T, then you'll have until April 16 to check out the handful of devices that all can be bought for only $0.01 – the spare change found in the nook and crannies of your sofa could be enough.

I really really wish at&t would come out with a phone that would make me wanna stay with them. There phone lineup is horrible compared to its competitors and with their reputation for shitty service I really feel that they are going to start losing a ton of business. Pull it together at&t stop blowin steve jobs and put some real phones on your lineup (android or WM7 possibly) without your shitty bloat ware and restrictions.

They are getting more phones. The backflip is the first of 5 android phones (with the HTC desire showing up in a couple months with android 2.1), not to mention palm pre and pixi plus, and not to mention the 4th gen iphone and samsung galaxy all set to be out by the end of the summer. And with $19 billion (billion, with a B) going into the network this summer with LTE launching summer 2011, wtf are you complaining about?

your really gonna consider the backflip an android phone... they destroyed it with their bloatware.. their doing the same thing with the dell phone and im sure well be seeing the same bullshit with the desire and x10. The galaxy I still am not sure will ever be seen. It's easy to see at&t's sneaky workings. In an attempt to keep exclusiveness with apple they didnt sell any worthy competition. During that time customers complained heavily about their network and they never did a dam thing about it. Now because they have finally realized their lagging heavily behind the competition they decide to enhance their network. Not to mention theyll be the last to offer a decent android, the last to offer 4G, and also (since they didnt learn from verizon) they will now be the only network to restrict the capabilities of your phone... sorry but your an idiot if your willing to pay for one of their phones... not to mention they wont offer subsidized plans for unlocked phones like tmobile... sorry but at&t youve gone to shit...

I totally agree with u kjh. I was so freakin disappointed with the OS 4.0 announcements. On top of consistent rumors that all of the anticipated "android phones w/Google" will be crippled just like the backflip. I can no longer take At&t and there BS. I will be jumping ship soon enough to another carrier and start to taste some android flavor.

exactly i can only hope that others will be smart enough to do the same.. i refused to switch to verizon when they started restricting phones and now at&t will be losing me after ten years with them because of their bullshit... ill be convincing friends and family to do the same

Iphoneluv, I can hardly believe that you are not staying with the iPhone 4G with AT&T (if that's true) lol, jk If you like android, u probably can try the HTC EVO 4G.

Exactly, I've been with them since the original IPhone but I am looking at the Htc Hd2 on T-mobile and the upcoming Htc Evo on sprint. Sprints unlimited everything plan for 69.99 as well as their FULL 30 day money back policy simply cannot be beat. Best deal in the wireless industry right now.

If AT&T gave me money, I would never sign a contract with them again! EVER!!! They are the worst service provider..PERIOD! For Amazon to offer their phones for a penny will no doubt lure some innocent fools into a contract, too bad AT&T can't get it together and fix their horrible network.

It's stupid how i see people on here switching providers for PHONES! that like switching sports teams b/c your favorite player got traded. I can change providers for a PHONE alone if i wanted to but there's a cause and effect for anything. Let say you switch one provider to another for two years b/c of a certain phone now that you change services all of a sudden you can't get service in the typical spot you would normally get with your previous provider all b/c you wanted a HTC HD or a IPHONE or whatever that hottest phone is for the next 3weeks, and etc. yall know what i mean........A phone doesn't make how much you have to pay a month,or customer service,or charges etc.

well on that note.. why pay more for a service that restricts your phones and offers no subsidized plan costs for purchasing unlocked phones such as tmobile... would you carry insurance with a company if they told you you couldnt use the gps preinstalled in your car... i think not!! AT&T plans are designed to cover the costs for the upfront savings of a phone. So in reality the carrier is judged upon the phones they carry. If they took a similar system as tmobile (offering lower plan costs for unsubsidized phones), the phones AT&T carries wouldnt be an issue.. but that is clearly not the case!! do some research mateo before offering your input!!

All these comment would probably be said again by someone else if it was a different provider
