This is NOT a deal compared to the T-Mobile Value-Plan. Although the phone itself costs $199, the cost of the classic plan itself over 2 years (compared to a 2-year value plan plus full price of the phone) is 200-300 HIGHER!

There is one option I have not tested, however. That is, sign up for the classic plan as OP suggested, but THEN, after receiving rebate check, CANCEL and pay ETF (early termination fee) of $200, making the phone only $400. THIS is a possible option and good deal.

Has anyone tried that?

Well, it's more like $299+tax+activation fee+1st month minimum plan of $59.99. Still - that comes out to about the price people are paying for used ones that have slight damage on eBay (and definitely beats Tmobile's off contract pricing) so it seems like you'd still save money with this versus buying off contract somewhere else if you really want a Note 2 on one of their prepaid plans.

I'm in the middle of trying it right now. Got the phone on Black Friday for $299-$100 MIR, no activation fee, and a $60 plan. I figure I'll have to keep the plan for 2 months until I get the MIR, pay $200 ETF (really cool how T-Mobile's ETF is so small), and I wind up with a Note for $520.

I would cancel immediately, but they'll ask for the phone back (and possibly charge full retail price if you don't give it back) if you cancel before 14 days (30 days in California).

Have this phone and it is awesome. No auto correct though on keyboard
