Sprint Prepaid phones and service, which up to now were only sold in Sprint stores and by phone order from Sprint telesales are now available at BestBuy stores and BestBuy.com. A reader posted a photo to the PrepaidPhoneNews Facebook page showing the Sprint Prepaid LG Tribute and Samsung Galaxy S III on display at his local BestBuy store.
BestBuy.com also has a page of Sprint Prepaid phones, including several at sale prices. The following phones are available from BestBuy:
LG Tribute LTE Android phone $39.99 (reg $79.99)
LG Volt Android phone $79.99 (reg $149.99)
Sharp Aquos Crystal LTE Android phone $149.99
Samsung Galaxy S III LTE $199.99 (reg $249.99)
Apple iPhone 5 16GB (pre-owned) $299.99
Except for the Galaxy S III all of these phones are new to Sprint Prepaid and do not appear on the Sprint Prepaid site.
It looks like Sprint is re-targeting Sprint Prepaid from an unadvertised in-house line to one that will be sold at big-box stores. According to a story on PhoneScoop, the Sprint Prepaid Sharp Aquos Crystal will be offered by Radio Shack beginning Oct 21. There's also a Sprint Prepaid page at Walmart.com
although it seems to be a placeholder page as all the phones on it are for other operators rather than Sprint Prepaid.
