Deal: Grab Apple's iPhone SE at a bargain price from Walmart, on sale for just $129

So, if you're an Apple aficionado and absolutely must own all the company's more or less unconventional smartphones, then the iPhone SE could a good candidate for your next purchase.

The 4-inch handset is now available at Walmart for $129, no less than $70 off of the regular price. Also, this is the lowest price that we've been able to track since the launch of the iPhone SE in the United States.

There's a catch though, as Walmart offers Apple's 32GB iPhone SE for Straight Talk's pre-paid service. The only color available in Rose Gold, as the Space Gray version seems to be out of stock for the moment.

While it's recommended to go buy the phone from Walmart's brick and mortar stores, you can always choose the free shipping option and get it via the retailer's online store. Undoubtedly, the iPhone SE is old enough that any Apple fan already knows what it looks and feels like by now, so you'd probably be better off getting it online.

In case you did not previously own an Apple smartphone and this will be your first one, you should definitely check out our iPhone SE review for more information.

Solid deal for a good phone! I can't state this enough: not everyone wants a 5.8 inch slab. Some people only use their phone to text, talk, and occasionally watch cat videos (and other stupid s**t) on YouTube. There are also those with what I like to call "Trump mittens" whose hands are either extremely dainty or not very big. This phone is for them (and anyone else wanting to buy it... not judging).

Like I said before, you claim a high stake in Apple success. This is a mental disease, get help, please. I wonder what would happen if you are lock away from your Apple gadgets for six months.

My hands are slightly big, but this is definitely my favorite iPhone.

The phone is like a 4.5in phone because of the bezels. Imagine if they make an almost bezeless iphone SE 2 or pro? That would be a good phone to run with, but I digress.

available with Walmart Family Mobile too. If only Family Mobile phones still worked on T-mobile, I would have gotten one. Anyone figured out how to unlock one of these?

IPhone unlocking is usually expensive.

The chip inside this phone is still better than the SD835, and this'll get updates long after any current Android flagships will. You might wanna reaccess what you deem "obsolete" with such caveats in mind.

I don't claim to be telepathic (I'm GreenMan not X-Man) but I'm positive that he was hinting at the meager microscopic display, lad. Don't get me wrong, I don't mind 4 Inchers. What I "DO" mind is the implementation of it on The SE. My back-up phone, a Lumia 430 is also a 4 Incher but does it look or feel "THAT" tiny? No, it doesn't because of relatively thick bezels (still slimmer than iPhone Plus of yore) and a chunky 15:9 aspect ratio which makes it feel almost like a 4.5" device. It's basically in the shape of a pocket and fits pretty nicely in the hand. Whereas The iPhone SE feel like you're wielding a bloody toy. Diagonal screen real-estate isn't a myth. The 4.5" display on The KEYone may sound tiny, but when I demoed it, the display felt larger than my S6, so go figure! Oh well, G'Day!

"I don't mind 4 Inchers..." Oh my lordy... (Sorry, I had to do it!)

Ah! Kids these days! In my days... Well you know, the world was like a paradise and we behaved like little angels, the usual! But yes, it certainly does sound 'bad', my bad! No worries, I'm too old to be insulted! Do what you have to, laddie. G'Day!

Such a hypocrite! You slam Android at every posting and you get upset that we disagree about Apple's awesomeness. sunnyfpy, suspicious of it being obsolete may be true. Both Mac and iOS have a limited upgrade time period once it reaches that time the device no longer be able to get iOS upgrade. In iOS world that a death sentence unlike Android I could still download apps from Playstore with my 6-year-old Xoom and use it as my daily tablet. iPhone 5 or iPad 1,2,3,4 they are no longer getting any iOS upgrade. So when would Apple announce they would stop supporting iPhone SE? Get the iPhone SE if you don't mind Apple withdrawing support in a year or two? Better than SD835... That's show me so much perspective is left in your mental capacity.

Yeah because people buy a specific phone for the chip...

I know it's may be a non issue for some in the Apple world but most Android user knowing which SOC is in the phone is a good place to start evaluating the Android phone.

Actually grabbed this on Simple Mobile via Best Buy for the same price. They're locked to Tracfone's service so even if you have a SIM for the carrier that it runs on (like Simple Mobile runs on Tmobile). Going to try a few more things, but chances are you'd only be able to use these on the America Movil family of carriers (Straight Talk, Simple Mobile, Net10, Tracfone, etc).

isn't it....illegal for them to not give the unlock code?

18. civicsr2cool

NO. It is illegal to not offer a way to unlock, to unlock though you have to first jump through their hoops just like every other carrier adopted to "comply" with the law but still make it nearly impossible. These require 12 months of active service to be able to unlock.

Solid deal, but would be locked to the American Movil family of companies. Better deal is the Best Buy AT&T GoPhone iPhone SE for $140. At least you can use it on AT&T (post and prepaid), Cricket and I believe other AT&T MVNOs. Unlock is possible and a little easier (6 months).
