Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week Feb 17 - Feb 23

Welcome to Prepaid Phone New's regular Sunday Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week listing of all current US prepaid phone deals in one place.

The deal of the week is the LG Optimus L9 4G for $199.99 with free shipping and a free $50 prepaid airtime card from the T-Mobile site. The regular price is $249.99. The $50 card makes the effective price $149.99 provided you intend to use the phone on T-Mobile prepaid.

Update: T-Mobile seems to be playing peek a boo with the $50 card offer. Some times it's there and some times it's not. It's come and gone several times in the last few days but as of now (12:15 PM PST)  this phone does not come with a $50 card.

The LG L9 4G has great specs for a sub-$200 GSM phone, including a 4.5 inch 540 x 960 px screen, dual-core 1 Ghz CPU, Android 4.0, 1 GB of RAM, 5 MP camera with flash, 1080p HD video recording and a front facing camera for video calls. For more about the L9 see Engadget's review.

Other current prepaid phone deals: (Except as noted all are available both online and in stores).

    1. I saw that though I'm not sure if that's a sale price or not. Based on the specs it looks like the Event is basically the Kyocera Rise without the QWERTY keyboard so $79.99 sounds about right for the regular price.

  2. Hi Yeswap, I found a TMobile Samsung Galaxy S Blaze for around 230 online. How does the Galaxy Blaze compare to this phone? I like the bigger screen of the LG, but the Samsung is worth a bit more because it costs more on TMobile.com/prepaid. Also, I was looking at used iphone 4 and Samsung Galaxy s 2. These cost around 230 also. what would you recommend i buy? I want to use the phone on Tmobile only for voice and text and apps. I don't want a slow phone, the Optimus is the slowest of the bunch right? Reception is extremely important to me because I live in a horrible coverage area.

    1. The Galaxy S Blaze and the LG Optimus l9 are both midrange phones with very similar specs and performance. Both have dual core processors, 5 MP cameras, 1 GB of RAM and run Android 4.0. The L9 has a bigger, brighter, higher resolution screen. The Blaze's camera is a bit better and it's battery life is longer.

      The Galaxy S II is Samsung's flagship from a year and a half ago. If new it would be the best of the three Android phones. Its camera and is by far the best and the screen is at least equal to that of the L9. But as a used phone, condition and whether the sell will stand behind it is what matters.

      iPhone vs Android is a personal choice. The iPhone is easier to use with generally better apps, especially paid apps. Android is more powerful and more customizable. I prefer Android but recommend the iPhone for non-technical users. The iPhone 4 is the oldest of the four phones you mentioned, the 4S is more comparable but it costs more, Apple products always do.

    1. The Lumia 710 is a low end Windows Phone running an older versiom of the OS that no longer receives updates. Windows Phone rivals the iPhone for ease of use but has a limited number of quality apps.

      I haven't heard any complaints about the Lumia 710's reception.

      At $120 for the refurbished 710, it's a good value. The camera and screen are better than anything else you will find at that price, the user interface is snappy and unlike the Android phones, there's very little bloatware

    2. I think you can update the OS to version 7.8 now, but never to 8.0

    3. Not officially: T-Mobile Confirms Windows Phone 7.8 Update NOT Coming To Lumia 710 and probably not at as Windows Phones are very locked down.

    4. The update has to be installed manually.

    1. T-Mobile is playing games with us. The $50 card just disappeared from the $149.99 Prism too. But free SIM cards are back :)

  6. I bought the L9 with the free refill card order, however, when i receive the phone, there is no refill card in the package! And the customer service kept on saying that they never had the free refill card deal ever for that phone and asked me to mail my claim to their customer relationship department for that! What a joke, t-mobile just questioning their customers' honesty!

    Is there any other way to deal the problem much quicker than write the letter?

    1. I took a screenshot of the web page that showed the free card, but I threw it away this morning.
      Refill card did not appear in my shopping cart. When I called to ask why, they said this card usually appears in their cart when they help with an order, but this time it did not. They checked, and said they sold out fast (see my post above). I cancelled because I did not want to hassle with CS if the phone arrived missing the card. Good luck with that. Don't miss the return deadline is you can't get the card in time and don't like the deal.

    2. di, I recommend calling back until you get a rep that's willing to help.

      Also, if you're on Facebook ask for help on T-Mobile's page: www.facebook.com/TMobile

      If you use Twitter ask @TMobileHelp for assistance

  7. Samsung Galaxy Exhibit 4G Android phone $179.99 with free $50 refill on the Tmobile prepaid site.
    Maybe you will get the refill card, maybe you won't.
    Order by phone if you want to be sure.
