T-Mobile puts $130 price tage 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.

A required data plan for a $130 non-smart phone on a 2yr contract=RAPE...like minus the lube, in front of a mirror, with your homeboys watching, along with the hottest girl you've ever met, and your parents and grandparents.....with popcorn

I really wish that the carriers would re-evaluate their prices for phones on contract. They're already going to bring in a lot of money from the Plans so if they want to bring in more phone sales in this Horrible Economy the General Public will not pay exorbitant phone prices. I happen to be in the Power user Smart phone category so usually my purchases are expensive but I Expect that for that type of phone but they are trying to bring in more General Users and this all wont fly with them. I really don't care for Apple or ATT very much but they are very smart for Pricing their iPhone so Competitively. Others need to follow suit.

Well just so you know all companies verizon sprint att tmobile and so on, do not make a profit on the their plans until the customer is well into their contract atleast over a year that is why they have early termination fees because they lose alot when a customer decides to terminate their contract early, so selling phones for what you may think is high is actually normal in all companies, especially with tmobile and att where you can buyy a phone unlock them to use with other companies so if they sell for cheap and the consumer does not even use with the same company there is more lost then gained. besides its an electronic device that lets you do so much talk text surf the web take pictures, yet you rwilling to spend 500 on a videio game

It can't be the final price. Maybe the tags come out of the system that way but there is going to be a running promotion on it or something. The tag says $130 but then there is a sign off to the side saying "save $100 with ____" today.
