T-Mobile Raising Prices on Their Phones
T-Mobile is raising the prices on several of their phones. You read that right; they are raising the prices on phones. Typically when a phone has been on the market for awhile the price drops, but T-Mobile has decided to go the other direction with a couple of the earlier 4G models.
Both the MyTouch 4G and the T-Mobile G2 will be getting upgraded pricing, no setting you back a cool $250 on a two year contract. That falls in line with the pricing on the new Samsung Galaxy S 4G. The Galaxy S 4G is being offered with a $50 mail in rebate, knocking the price down to $199.99 for a limited time.
The really interesting thing about the Galaxy S 4G is that as a no contract phone, it is exactly the same price as the phone it is replacing, the Samsung Vibrant. Both phones will cost $499 off contract despite the fact that the 4G has some upgraded specs.
It will be interesting to see how this plays out with customers who were procrastinating on pulling the trigger on a 4G phone.
