    $330 according to a Phandroid Article. 4 payments of 82.50 on approved credit you do the math.

    With that said it would be crazy to not buy this.

    The X will most likely be the same. They all have the common goal of competing against the iPhone, so you probably won't see an Android phone with a 1GHz processor go for more than that.

    lets see:

    phone 199.99 on contract
    2 year agreement 79.99 (500 Minutes
    Talk + Unlimited Text + Unlimited Web)
    plan with tax bout $91 & change per month, 24 months $2,184.

    OR

    buy the phone outright $449.99
    (Even More Plus) no contract plan $59.99 (500 Minutes
    Talk + Unlimited Text + Unlimited Web) bout $68 & change after tax.
    24 months $1,632.

    even if you tack on the extra $200 that you're paying for the unlocked phone you still save a bit of $$

    I've said it once and I'll definitely say it again, buying the phone off contract is the way to go, and with T-Mobile's EIP(Equipment Installment Plan) it's actually cheaper up front and overall to do than on contract.

    If the phone is $449, with the EIP it'd be $22.50 + applicable tax to the phone up front, and an extra $22.50 a month on your bill for the first 19 months.

    So for the first 19 months your bill would be $2.50 higher than the contract plan, but after 19 it'll drop down back down $22.50, still saving you about $112.50 over a contract plan but without actually being locked in. plus you can pay the phone off at any time if u want your monthly bill to drop.

    That's what I'll be doing. No contract and low, interest free payments. Love T-Mobile.

    So is this normal for off-contract phones from carriers? Because I usually buy unlocked phones from overseas and even grey market hong kong exports are $$$. Is samsung giving the phone away, or is T-mobile eating up some of the cost and hoping you won't run away and join another carrier?
