Default Captivate Free at WalMart

Unbelievable sale at WalMart right now. Free with no contract or 2 year renewal, $229 without a contract. Got mine ordered off contract and overnight delivery for additional $19. No tax, no activation free, and best of all, no need to deal with AT&T store people about dropping price from $500 or switching to a hobbled data plan. If you are more patient than me, they offer $9 for two day shipping or free shipping options as well.

Update: The $229 price without contract is now dead. Free phone with a new 2 year contract still stands.

I ordered mine for $229 Will this allow me to keep my unlimited data plan that I currently have with my iphone? Also will this use my upgrade?

I also ordered one for $229 and no contract.
My order also shows customer attention needed.
Guess we will find out in an hour when they open.

As a Walmart cell phone dealer, I have to say this is nuts, I've never seen them do this before. I hope the in store price is this low when I go in this afternoon. Which I doubt, as the online prices are always lower than in store.

The only thing keeping me from moving to Att is the 2GB data plan limit.

I dont think so, I am going to try. Best buy is across the street from walmart here. I am sure they will sling some bs about how its online and not in the store. They are charging 229 with a new contract.

Mine says customer attention needed on my orders as well. The sales department opens at 11, but I am not sure we need customer service instead. They are not open today.

This is a specific deal through letstalk.com. It is not a Wal-Mart Deal. I tried to see if an upgrade of my line on my family plan qualified for this because I was going to take back the Captivate I got at ATT but if you are upgrading a phone on a family plan it is still the regular pricing.

Hmmm odd. I'm guessing it's not line 1 of your family plan?

That is correct, I am an additional line. Anyone know much about letstalk.com?

I pulled the trigger on this.... went directly to letstalk.com and got the phone without a contract for 248.94 with overnight shipping.

We are currently picking your product(s).

Now I am just going to AT&T today to return my iPhone 4, get my money and activation fees back, and have them switch me back to the sim card in my 3GS.

My Captivate will be here on Tuesday and I can just swap the sim into there (I hope!)

I am finally a convert and free of APPLE!!! YAAAA!!!

The $229 deal should be a free and clear no contract price and not require a new 2-year contract purchased separately. The reason I think this is the case is because if you follow the same steps trying to buy an HTC Aria without contract, it shows a reasonable $369 free and clear price.

Some folks are reporting that this is showing "attention required" as the status. It's obviously a price mistake, that they may not honor. I have heard of some horror stories with LetsTalk.

What kind of horror stories? Maybe the universe balances itself out and we will get some happy stories to cancel those out.

I am not taking a chance on this Walmart deal because I don't think it will fly and because I cannot stand Walmart lol. I will be heading to my local AT&T store at noon and purchasing it there for $200.

Since my Ipod Touch has been broken for a week with the white screen of death, I will finally have something, better, that I can enjoy!

Don't count your chickens until the phone is in your hands. That price is obviously an error. Maybe you'll get lucky, more than likely, not.

I called the sales department (1-800-539-1871) and talked to a Rep (you have to push 2, as all other options take you to a voice recording about the offices being closed). I asked what Customer Attention Needed means. She said that that status was because there were some additional questions I needed to answer from their fulfillment department and then they would ship the phone, and to call tomorrow morning at 8 (I think that's CDT, because they are in Texas). She then ended the call with enjoy your phone. They haven't flagged my order as a pricing mistake (yet). She was able to cancel my other accidental double order, but couldn't get red of the customer attention needed status. At least that part is not about a pricing mistake.

Like I said, don't hold your breath. Chances are slim to none you will get it for that price. I hope you do (and I hope I do as well). These types of companies are not in business to sell phones off contract (they make their money from contract commissions) and to sell it for HALF of what AT&T sells it for is highly unlikely (unless you are renewing your contract).

I would strongly suggest you make a screen print of the page that shows the price and says "phone only" for your records.

They didn't charge it, they "authorized" it. It's only a temporary hold on the funds.

Since you bought it unlocked, you should be able to just put in your SIM and be good to go. It will not affect your contract terms.

I doubt it, generally speaking the on-line price and in-store prices vary. If you notice even though it has the Wal-Mart logo on the page, you have actually been redirected to a third-party seller (Letstalk), I don't believe Letstalk handles in-store sales too, there you will be dealing with a Wal-Mart associate.

Price now reflects $199.99 with contract. I placed an order earlier to upgrade a line on a family plan and keep my unlimited data with a contract extension for $49.99. That order is now showing cancelled. Price error and dead now. Hoping Best Buy will match Wirefly's price that does not appear to be a pricing error.

My order has not been cancelled and the letstalk/walmart site still shows 229 off contract (free with upgrade/new account).

I don't see any webpage yet that says $199 with a 2 year contract on Let's Talk. That's still looking free to me, so no price change yet, and my order still stands.

PS - Never mind. I see that clicking over the family plan tab shows $199, while lets talk new plan shows Free.

My order says: customer attention needed status

I called Walmart...and read some bit on this. Turns out some purchases via Lets Talk get flagged for no-contract purchases......by computers, and a standard procedure to check that your credit card is good...seems hoky

Also, my original order had a wrong email, possibly hence the flag and "attention" status....crap.

Yeah, I stand corrected. Some areas show Free, some show $99.99, some show $199.99.

Tried ordering one contract free for the $229 like everyone else instead. Guess I'll see how that goes.

It's not UNLOCKED, it without contract. There is a big difference. (Other then the fact you won't get it for that price).

Stand corrected, although I have gotten At&t to unlock every device I have had by just asking. You might need to have the device 90 days, not sure.

So nobody has really confirmed this yet. Is LetsTalk officially offering this for these prices or is it a pricing error?

Just a side question. I'm in CA as well. Any idea where LetsTalk ships from?

Hey guys - well, I can't speak to the fact that it could be an error. BUT! I talked to the customer service guy - I had entered all the info except pushing the final "purchase" button, and saw a "need help? Call us!" button - I called, they had my session info, pulled up allll the stuff I had put in, and I asked 3 times:

IS THIS THE RIGHT PRICE FOR THE HANDSET ONLY?
NO CONTRACT EXTENSION?

He put me on hold, and came back and said yes, it's only the phone, no contract extension, that is the correct price, and that there are no terms or liabilities that needed to be disclosed because I was purchasing only the phone!

Then I got the email confirmation, plus the link email saying that I needed to follow it to accept the terms and conditions (which are all about returning the device if you decide you don't like it)

Yes, it could happen that this was the wrong price and they won't honor it - but I have the guy's direct extension, and well, it seems legit - If it isn't, I guarantee it's the last time they'll release a new phone on a Sunday when the bigwigs aren't around to catch the price error :-D

The company is closed for the day so there is no way to tell. I have little doubt it is a pricing error considering there isn't a single new smartphone available from any company anywhere in the US (if not in the entire world) for $229 WITHOUT a signing NEW contract.

When they see 3000 orders for a non-contract phone you can be sure they'll fix it ..... but maybe we'll get lucky and the first 25 ordered will get one at that price. Just don't pin your hopes on getting one for that price.

That being said, I HOPE I AM COMPLETELY WRONG! (But I highly doubt it).

He said that simply because he went to the web page and saw the same thing you saw and confirmed it. You think he called the CEO of the company to check?

I was just about to pull the trigger, but it looks like the price just updated to 499.99 w/o the contract. Boo.
