Prepaid Phone Deals for 3/27/2011 - 4/2/2011

Welcome to Prepaid Phone News' weekly listing of prepaid phones on sale.

Assuming it's actually available, the top deal this week has got to be the refurbished LG Optimus T for $99 at T-Mobile.com.

The reason I have doubts is that the "Add to Cart" button on the site is grayed out and not working. I spoke with a T-Mobile telephone sales rep who told me they are aware of the issue and that the phone is available and the online-only price will be honored by tele-sales while the web site is not working. Call 1-877-353-3614 to order.

The Optimus is by far the best entry level Android device currently available (see Engadget's review). It has a quality 3.2 inch 320 x 480 px screen, Android 2.2 (Froyo), decent 3 MP camera and a sufficiently powerful processor and graphics chip to be nicely responsive.

If you are looking for a USB wireless modem for your laptop T-Mobile has quite a deal for you. It's the T-Mobile Rocket 2.0 4G Laptop Stick with a free $30 refill for $59.99. Update: the free refill deal has ended.

The free $30 refill card offer is back on T-Mobile's website.  Almost all new (and some refurbished) phones on the site come with a free $30 refill card. T-Mobile's refill deals typically only last a couple of days so hop on it now if you're interested. Update 29-Mar-2011 The free $30 refill offer has ended.

If you ordered a phone that was supposed to come with a free refill and didn't get the refill, call T-Mobile TeleSales Support at 800-672-5390 to get your refill PIN.

There are also some good deals on several refurbished phones this week. Shipping is free on all phones.

LG Optimus T Android phone $99.99 ($239.99 if new). Note: T-Mobile's website is currently having issues that are causing the "Add to Cart" button for the Optimus T to be grayed out and non-functional.   If you can't order online because the button is grayed out, call 1-877-353-3614 to order. I just spoke with T-Mobile and was assured that the Optimus T is available and that telephone sales reps will give you the online-only price if you can't order online because of the glitch.

T-Mobile Rocket 2.0 4G Laptop Stick with free $30 refill $59.99 ($199.99)
