Updated 8/25: Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week: Aug 20 - Aug 26

Apple iPhone SE - Space Gray
Welcome to the latest edition of Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week feature. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones that I've been able to find online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the Straight Talk iPhone SE 32 GB for $129.00 at Walmart. This is the lowest price I've seen yet for a brand new SE from any carrier. The phone is locked and can only be unlocked by Straight Talk, which will only unlock it after it has used on Straight Talk for 12 months consecutive months of paid service. The Straight Talk SE comes with a Straight Talk Verizon SIM.

There's some speculation on Howard Forums and Slickdeals that Straight Talk iPhones will work with any AT&T or Verizon based TracFone brand (i.e. TracFone, Net10, StraightTalk, Total Wireless) BYOP SIM. Supposedly, the phone will lock to the brand and network of whatever TracFone brand SIM is in it when it's first turned on. Personally, I think buying this for use on any carrier except Straight Talk is risky.

Another option for a cheap SE is Best Buy which has the AT&T Prepaid iPhone SE 32 GB on sale for $149.99. It's locked to AT&T but AT&T locked phones will work on AT&T prepaid or postpaid, Cricket or any AT&T MVNO like H2O, RedPocket GSMA or TracFone AT&T.

  2. Nokia 6 unlocked 32 gb $179.99 on Amazon prime

  3. Anything on this list that works good with Redpocket and near or under $50.? Maybe the Samsung Express for $46 at Walmart? Thoughts??? Thx
    ATT has some good handset prices but I think you have to use their prepaid service in order to qualify for the low handset prices?

    1. I have several locked AT&T devices (phones and tablets) that were purchased at promotional prices and activated on AT&T MVNOs without ever being on AT&T Prepaid.

      My recommendation would be the Phoenix 2 (not 3) which is a surprisingly good phone.

      Delete
    2. When purchasing a phone from the AT&T Prepaid site you have to choose a plan and an airtime card for that plan gets added to the order. You can remove the card from the shopping cart before checking out. You will not be charged for the plan and the phone can be used on an AT&T MVNO.

      Delete
    3. LG Phoenix 2 has an 8 MP camera and can be upgraded to Nougat. The LG Phoenix camera is 5 MP.

      Delete
    4. The original LG Phoenix has a 3 MP camera, Gingerbread and a 3,5" screen. The best Phoenix is the Phoenix 2.

      Delete
  4. The majority of Best Buy retail stores did not sell the ATT prepaid Iphone SE at the $149 advertised price last week they sold them for $189 a $10 discount from $199 and would not honor the Best Buy website $149 price, maybe this week will change that?

    1. Purchase online using the pickup at store option if your store doesn't honor the price.

    2. IF Best Buy stores keep doing stuff like trying to overcharge $40 for this phone, they deserve Amazon wiping them out.

    3. > We match BestBuy.com prices on in-store purchases and in-store prices on BestBuy.com purchases.

      I'm not sure what to say other than, did you personally visit the majority of their 1,379 US locations, observe the shelf price, and ask for a price match that was declined? I bought earlier this month and was able to get the $149 price match weeks later (still in return window).

      "We match BestBuy.com prices on in-store purchases"

      Over the past year or so, I've been told by two different associates at the Best Buys in The Villages & Ocala, FL that they will match the likes of Amazon, NewEgg, B&H Photo, etc BUT will NOT MATCH their own Best Buy website & that I would have to order product on my own through their web site for the cheaper price. Both occurred last year...maybe it depends on which associates want to be helpful or not.

  7. don't make a major mistake trying to pinch pennies and cost yourself dollars! better to buy unlocked gsm phone or unlocked moto phone , like the e4. you avoid carrier bloatware, get updates direct from phone maker, can move your account to any carrier/mvno you want, and are not locked into anything. spend the $99 with the lockscreen ads, and you just swipe away the lockscreen to use the phone. it is like switching from whole milk to 1%, 2%, or skim. you adjust. after a few days, the lockscreen ads won't even make you flinch.

    2. Except with Moto, the phone maker rarely bothers to send updates.

    1. The first was a typo, price should have been $179.99. It looks like Best Buy has ended the sale. I've removed both items. Thanks for reporting the discrepancy.

    1. So these Alcatel and Kyocera are ATT carrier locked
      or factory unlocked for any GSM ???

    2. They are AT&T Prepaid phones locked to AT&T. Also very low spec 8 GB storage, 1 GB RAM 5 MP cameras.

    3. They can usually be unlocked through eBay vendors for around $4. They aren't flagship phones but would be great for pre-teen or elderly users.

  15. Wanted to ask a dumb question. Can an unlocked Verizon prepaid phone (specifically the Moto E4) be used with a Verizon postpaid SIM? Just got the Verizon Moto E4 from Walmart and am going to unlock it, and am considering using it for my primary phone. Hoping to be able to just unlock it and use it with my postpaid SIM.
