Thanks to one of our tipsters, we were made aware of this great deal that the retail giant has going on. The Target Mobile kiosks are a joint-venture between Target and Radioshack and even though they are fairly new, their prices are right up there with the best.
Up until Saturday, Target Mobile had the Samsung Infuse 4G for $179.99 with a new two-year activation or upgrade. To see a price drop to $49 on a device that is very new and very popular is quite surprising. There may be some reasoning behind it, as our tipster had something else to tell us.
The Samsung Infuse 4G is now listed as discontinued in the system Target Mobile uses. Why is this you ask? Well, we don’t know, but we could always speculate that it has to do with the lawsuits Samsung is facing courtesy of Apple that is attacking the UI featured on certain devices. It could even simply be a computer error. But is this at all related? We may never know the truth.
For now the real truth is that $49 for the Samsung Infuse 4G is a great deal. Check out your nearest Target Mobile and maybe you can get your hands on one if there is any of them left. Tell us what you think in the comments below.
- Display 4.5" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 8 MP / 1.3 MP front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 3, Single core, 1200 MHz
- Storage 16 GB + microSDHC
- Battery 1750 mAh(8.00h talk time)
I work for Target mobile, the sale on the Samsung Infuse was and is not an "accident." The phone is still active in our system, it is not discontinued. We generally have the best prices around. We have no mail in rebates, have great service, and have a trade in program where you can trade in cell phones, video games, ipods, and other electronics and put it towards a new phone or get a Target gift care instead. You all should considor Target mobile the next time you upgrade or get a new phone.

No thats not true... Sams club just started selling cell phones after kicking you guys out to target... Soo SamS club has better prices and no rebates.. Ppl should come there to get their upgrades.. We dont have a trade in program but why would you want to trade in your old phone.. Never know when you'll need one..

Ya Sam's Club is Wal-Mart, and I'm sure the mobile center is treated the same. Everyone knows how Wal-Mart handles their mobile department, it tends to be a terrible experience. In my experience the atmosphere at Sam's clubs has been aweful, the associates are rude and it is hard to find help if you ever need it. Cost Co is by far superior to Sam's Club. Sam's Club's worst move ever was to kick Radishack out of their clubs. Their not going to have near the success. Sam's Club associates are non-commissioned and don't care about if they get the sale or not. By the way Radioshack is now in every Target and they are doing better now than they were when they were in Sam's Clubs. They have more stores and have less overhead. Targets have a better selection of phones and have better prices on handsets. Lastly why wouldn't someone want to trade in their current phone and it use towards a new phone; it drastically reduces handset prices. When you are representing your company please check for grammar and spelling errors, you are making a fool of yourself and of Sam's Club.

I'm completely neutral in this argument considering I'll buy a phone wherever it's cheapest, no matter who it's from, but since you mention grammar and spelling errors... "aweful" - end of line 3 "Their not going to..." - line 6 (should be "they are") Sorry, it bothers me when people can't spell, and it bothers me even more when people who can't spell try to call other people out on their spelling.

Get a life .. Sams is better... lower prices or about the same. Radioshack has been in the cell phone game for a while and Sams barely started and its doing better.. and about trading phones I guess its a persons preference...but if anybody needs to check their spelling it would be you.. finish school first and then worry about the cell phone business

the only reason that the phone is that cheap at radioshack is because their phones are too expensive and the kiosk workers dont know crap about technology... i actually went to my local target and had the 2 workers there confirm that thr iphone 4 is a 4g phone.... how sad. Rumor has it is that radioshack is hurting and needs a pick me up which is by having that phone at that price. wal-mart and sams club makes more sales than any carrier store or 3rd party this i know is a fact. Sams club has had the cheapest prices for the most part and they are not on commision so they wont hassle u to get a phone which is the best thing possible. having to make sales to get paid makes u jump up peoples asses and who wants that??? Whom ever still does rebates avoid getting phones from them.. Sams and walmart are the only ones i havent seen mail in rebates. Fact of the matter is radioshack yes has the horrible samsung infuse cheaper than sams and walmart but thats it.. the htc inspire is a better phone than the infuse anyways!
