Deal: Grab the iPhone SE 32GB with AT&T prepaid service for just $149.99

The small iPhone SE is very popular among Apple fans, which is why the Redmond-based company was convinced to launch a sequel in the coming months, or so the rumors say.

The 4-inch iPhone has been available in the United States for quite some time across many carriers and retailers. Currently, the smartphone sells for $200-$250, even lower if manage to strike a good deal.

Speaking of deals, Best Buy has a promotional offer for the iPhone SE 32GB, thus enabling customers to purchase it for just $149.99. However, the retailer only offers the AT&T version of the iPhone SE, so if you're with another carrier you'll probably want to skip this deal.

In any case, it's worth pointing out that AT&T is selling the iPhone SE 32GB for $244.99, so you'll be saving around $95 if you buy it from Best Buy. Also, free shipping is included in the deal as well if you decide to go for it.

The iPhone SE is getting less and less expensive! First, there was the 16GB SE from Cricket for $169.99 a couple months ago, and the $199.99 32GB SE from Best Buy. Then, I saw the $159.99 SE (unknown-unspecified storage capacity) from StraightTalk at my local WalMart a couple of weeks ago... and now $149.99 for 32GB SE on AT&T prepaid from Best Buy! Perhaps waiting until the next version of the SE launches, I will be able to get an even better deal as Cricket clears out inventory. They still sell the 64GB SE for $229.99, but if it gets into the sub $200 region, I'd buy it (of course, I'm assuming I'll have a job by then to support buying a more expensive mobile than what I am comfortable buying right at this moment).

Funny that you read in other threads on this site that Apple would dominate the budget market if they'd sell a budget model. Yet, no one would touch this this POS phone with a ten foot stick, despite Apple practically giving it away....

They've sold 20+ million of these little phones. For context, the only Android device with such a feat are the S7 series up til now. Two of my family members own them, and they run better than 99.9% of what you can get from the other OS at a fraction of the cost. The only reason it hasn't sold better is the 5S shell.

Well when you have 5 phones for ios and 100 for android then you are going to sell less of each android obviously.

"The redmond based company".... If this were an Alan F. post he would be telling everyone that corrected him in the comment section that he's right and they're wrong. Period. Microsoft is Cupertino and Apple is Redmond.

Yowzas. Heck of a deal. I've never had a problem unlocking an AT&T prepaid phone. Just don't activate it on AT&T and go to their unlocking website. Select "no" to the question if you are an AT&T customer

There is no "loophole". A few have just been lucky. Their policy on unlocking prepaid phones has always been with 6 months service required. If they decide to enforce that, youll be s.o.l...

Can you describe step by step of it? I found that I can choose no and then what is the next step? Should I insert another sim card first?
