T-Mobile puts $130 price tage on Samsung Comeback?

T-Mobile puts $130 price tag on Samsung Comeback?
Yesterday we reported about a leaked copy of a specs sheet for the Samsung Comeback. Today, we have leaked information on the pricing of the messaging phone, thanks to a tipster who passed along to BGR some information that reveals T-Mobile's intentions. It looks like the carrier will be asking $129.99 for the Comeback, after a rebate and with your John Hancock on a 2 year contract. The package also includes a data and messaging bundle at $19.95 per month. A one year contract will cost $179.99 and the phone is $249.99 contract free.

The Comeback is aimed at the young, texting crowd, many of whom depend on summer jobs to support their social life during this time of year. For this demographic, $130 might seem a little too rich, especially considering that a refurbished iPhone 3G can be bought as low as $79. At T-Mobile, the G1 would cost only $20 more. Depending on the amount of lawnmowing that needs to be done around the country, T-Mobile might need to revisit this decision down the road.
