Attention Walmart shoppers, here are deals on the Google Nexus 4 and Samsung GALAXY Note II
posted by Alan F. / Feb 09, 2013, 2:14 AM
Samsung GALAXY Note II in white for $278. That works out to $91 cheaper than T-Mobile's price after the mail-in rebate. The sale price is good for new and current T-Mobile customers as long as a signature is affixed to that two year contract. Without the contract, the store will be willing to sell you the phone for $700.
So there it is. You now have a game plan for the Google Nexus 4. When you're ready to buy, you will order online for just $49.99 from T-Mobile. If that sale is over or there is no more of the phone in stock, it is off to Walmart you go to pay $148. And if the Samsung GALAXY Note II is the model for you, you can pick it up in white for $278, also from Walmart. And the great thing about buying either phone from Walmart is that you can also pick up those new socks you've been needing at the same time.

If you read the fine print, T-Mobile's "unlimited" data plan is actually throttled at something like 9,765GB. I dare someone to reach that in a month. So, no, technically, it's not unlimited, but I highly doubt anyone could even come close to that ceiling if they tried.

There is 1,024 MB in a GB so 9,765 GB is 9,999,360 MB. If you assume 30 days in a month, that means 720 hours in a month, or 43,200 minutes or 2,592,000 seconds. To reach the limit, your breakeven transfer rate is 9,999,360 MB divided by 2,592,000 or about 3.8578 MB per second. The question is does T-Mobile suppot a sustain download speed of about 3.86 MB per second (or about 30.9 mbps). If T-mobile cannot support that 3.86 MB per second transfer rate, than unlimited is correct, and it is not a technicality because it is unlimited based on current technolgies.

For a power user like me, 10 gigs in a month is really miniscule coz I plan to torrent while on the go...I consume an average of 250 gigs....thx for shedding light

250GB in one month? Hope you are joking. I use my phone through out all day and it's almost impossible to go over 1GB. Do you stream Netflix in HD 24/7? What carrier allows you to use that much data in a month without getting throttled? Cant be Sprint since they are too damn slow to allow you to use that much data in a month.

I wouldn't let Walmart touch my plan ever again. They screwed up a bunch of stuff for me a few years ago. You might get stuff on the cheap, but because of it, you get some untrained chimpanzee who normally stocks shoes trying to activate your phone. No thanks.

Ahhem.. Walmart wireless employee here: Our system is difficult to master, however at MY store, only trained phone reps are allowed to even TOUCH contract phones... And even then we have a 15day return policy where we can call reps of those carriers and have everything fixed in minutes... Also the galaxy s3 is on sale for all carriers In store for 98 dollars. Original Samsung note is 49 dollars And starting today(I think) We have a special where if u activate a Samsung phone u get a 50dollar Walmart gift card You're welcome.
