OMG, Is Costco Basically Giving Away Samsung Galaxy S 4G Android Phones This Month?

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

[UPDATE: Whoops. The good phones are $479 – so take away $430 and you’re paying $50 for the phone (assuming you’re signing up for a two-year contract) plus The Man takes close to $50 in sales tax away from you. I guess that’s close to being free. Unlimited data, two phones = something like $100/mo before taxes.]

I don’t know, but there’s some coupon you members got in the mail that says “up to $430 off” or whatnot – it runs through April 3, 2011.

(I don’t know, does T Mobile work as well as the all-time-grand-champion Sprint network in the 415? Signs point to no, so far. But your phone will switch over to WiFi¬†seamlessly¬†at home so that’s half the battle right there. And outdoors, T Mobile’s doing A-OK with wicked fast performance.*)

Go see manager Nick in the kiosk at the SoMA Costco** and then, You Make The Call over whether this is a good deal or not.

*Not that that matters too much. I’ll tell you, my old-school Sprint smart phone never dropped a call and always worked everywhere all the time (except for the basement of the State Building and your typical elevator). Until that traffic accident, it was doing fine – RIP, Palm 900-something with free unlimited data plan. Maybe I got spoiled with the Sprint network.

**They have more than just T Mobile, of course, but I don’t know all which ones.
