  Where do you see $620 without a contract? This is for Simple Choice no contract. When you go through the order process, all you pay is for the phone. The plan is purchased from T Mobile.

Incredible deal if it was correct. Unfortunately, as direfu points out, $80 is the price with a new Tmobile account. No contract (replacement device) is $621.

  OK...$80 for a new T Mobile account under a Simple Choice No Contract Plan. Am I missing something?

T-Mobile authorized dealer is not the same as T-Mobile prepaid.

Still from what I am reading Simply choice, it has no yearly lockins.

Yep, the fine print. You have to keep the Line active for 181 days (6 months) or they charge you $400.  So there is a 6 month contract with OfficeMax

Instant Savings Discounts
We promise you savings in the form of instant discounts, with no rebates or gimmicks, when you sign up for T-Mobile service on a 2 year agreement. We are able to offer these great discounts because we get paid by T-Mobile for having helped them get (or retain) a good customer. Delivering on this promise means that you must agree to maintain your agreement with T-Mobile for a minimum of 181 days after activation. If we are notified by T-Mobile that they are not going to pay us because your phone has been deactivated during this period, then this may lead to additional charges.

To provide you with significant savings vs. buying in a retail store, the price you paid for your device includes an Instant Savings Discount from this online retailer.

By accepting this Instant Savings Discount, you agree to repay $200 of this discount ($400 for smartphones, tablets, and netbooks) and authorize us to charge your credit card in repayment of this amount if, you signed up for a 2 year agreement and during the 181 days after your new equipment is activated, T-Mobile notifies us that the services you purchased have been suspended, disconnected, or deactivated, or if you return your purchase outside of the return and exchange provisions of our Satisfaction Guarantee.

Other than you simply deactivating a line we've activated, T-Mobile could notify us that you deactivated if:
    You fail to pay T-Mobile in accordance with their terms and conditions
    You transfer equipment we activate on one line to another T-Mobile line, even within the same account
    You activate this equipment on a new line of service on T-Mobile and use it to replace an existing T-Mobile line by deactivating the existing line.


 

There is no contract with the plan, but..... there is a contract with the phone which you are suppose to keep on the tmobile account for x amount of time. Read the detail in light grey.

It looks like you do have to sign up for a new TMobile account, but there is no term and it can be cancelled at any time with no penalty.  I didn't read all of the fine print, but it looks like you can just cancel the new account and be out and additional $50 for one month of service at the most.  If the service is prorated, you could just cancel as soon as you get the phone and only owe part of the $50 monthly fee.

Seems like a good deal for the SIII if you are willing to jump through the hoops.

--good luck

Can't really afford more than what I'm paying VM now but I'll have to remember Office Max doing discounts like these in the future.

in for one.. before it is gone.. like there was a similar deal from Sprint recently for a Samsung phone (free)!

I'd be careful doing this deal. I see the OP point...

However, your not dealing with OfficeMax. Your dealing with Simplexity.

If you do this deal, cancel your T-Mobile plan in less than a month. I have a feeling Simplexity will go after you and screw your credit.

Is it really worth screwing your credit history?

Not for me...

Now if this was an Amazon price mistake, I'll be all over that since Amazon won't go after you because of their mistakes but with Simplexity, too risky I think...

Reading the device details, this looks like a non-LTE version?

  Correct.
Samsung Galaxy S III LTE Marble White

^ not LTE

I tried adding to cart and start checkout, and it says the price is 79.99 with "SImple Choice - No Contract" $50

So worst case looks like it's gonna be 79.99 + 50 = 130 (assuming we can cancel after 1 month).

Can anybody confirm?

The OfficeMax webpages have type-o's all over the place.   The details say the phone is model # SPHL710, which is the Sprint CDMA version.  If that's true it won't work with T-Mobile.

T-Mobile has 2 variants of the phone, model # SGH-T999 and SGH-T999L, you want the SGH-T999L model for LTE support.

I would try if someone confirm as no contract

JarginAU said:   There is no such thing as a non-LTE version of the S3. This is a type-o on the website. Clicking on device details for both phones list them as the same model #: SPHL710
  Yes, there are two versions of the T-Mobile Galaxy s3. The LTE and the non LTE version

You are correct, thank you for catching my mistake.  I have updated with the correct T-Mobile versions.

If you choose "replacement phone" price goes up to $620. Had me drooling for a second.

I already have a T Mobile Plan with four lines.  I wonder if I could simply add a new line to my existing plan to buy this phone, and then cancel one of the other lines.

  That sounds like it would work, but if your plan is like mine, you will be cancelling a $5 or $10 per month plan and adding a $50 per month plan.  
 

No activation fee and $50 for a month. No shipping, so $80 + $50 + tax < $150 which is a good deal for a brand new Galaxy S3, assuming you cancel service after 1 month. Don't know why everyone is negging it?

Edit:  Unfortunately the deal is now gone.
