Nope. That's exactly what I'm going to do.

How much they charge for early termination?

Back order Samsung Galaxy 2 & 3

Why is that a hot deal? retail is $200 at Sprint anyway, maybe less now.

NOT hot. I bought a pair of S3's (Sprint) on August 1st, got a $50 instant gift card for each one when I renewed my contract at purchase, paid $150 each, out the door. Yesterday, I went in with my local HH Gregg sunday newspaper ad that showed a free $100 gift card with any 4G LTE phone purchase or renewal. They gave me a price match and I walked out with a pair of $100 gift cards. Net $50/each for two white Sprint Galaxy S3 phones at Best Buy. Obviously it was a big YMMV, but this deal is not hot...

This is for T-Mobile not for Sprint? T-Mobile wants $100 more for the Galaxy III on their site....

Wal-Mart has them for $148 w/2 year contract

Gas in Venezuela is 3 cents per liter. Maybe less now

How's that? I see $339.99 for an upgrade with 2 year contract

I see Verizon's S3 for 148 but not T-Mobile's...

I see a Pre-Paid Galaxy S2 for $339.99. I was in WalMart yesterday looking at the AT&T Galaxy S3 and they were under $150 with 2-year contract. The price may drop in the coming weeks when the iPhone 5 is released.

Samsung Galaxy now is so popular!

I think the price is a little expensive.There are many cheaper phones with the similar Configuration.......

GSM (T-Mo) & CDMA (Sprints) are 2 different systems...so, the phones have different price.

$148 at WalMart. Local add (zip 33781). 4 days left. Verizon, Sprint, and ATT. White only.

Expensive? I am curious to know about those cheaper phones with similar configuration.

Phones might be cheaper but how long will they last. I am looking at the Samsung's because if I have to sign a 2 year contract I want a phone that will last me 2 years! Those MyTouch phones that Tmobile has are garbage, I had two of them on two of my five lines and they barely last you a year if you are lucky so you can do a warranty swap, otherwise at 13-14 months they go bad. Otherwise you pay $7 a month for insurance and they want a $150 deductible and never have your phone available. My Google G2 is not available and they wanted to give me a MyTouch instead?? I hope for better luck with the Samsungs!

Any issue with buying it for $148, canceling and paying the $200 ETF (for a total of $348), and then using the phone with the $30/month T-Mobile prepaid plan?

YES!

What does Venezuelan gas price have to do with anything? The posted responses are talking about getting the same phone LOCALLY for a cheaper price (i.e. your deal is NOT so hot).

not too bright...
this topic is about S3 prices for T-Mobile users, not Sprint.
$180 is the best price now (along with Costco deal)
posting about Sprint prices is as adequate as posting about gas prices in other countries. in simple words: it may be cheaper somewhere else but it's not gonna happen. savvy?

Assuming we're talking about the Tmo version at WalMart, what kind of issues? Does WalMart charge a separate ETF like Wirefly/Amazon?

Nope. That's exactly what I'm going to do.

Could somebody buy the T-Mo Galaxy S3 from WalMart, cancel & pay the ETF ($348), then within a week or two throw the Galaxy on one of their Value plans as a new customer? T-mo is asking $550 for the phone outright, but doing it this way would save over $200.

If T-Mo won't allow those shenanigans, what about buying and terminating w/ ATT? Aren't they still a GSM/SIM card operation?
