Another handset is burrowing its way into the pre-paid market and customers are certainly ready to flock over. Big ‘ole Walmart and the nation’s fourth-largest carrier, T-Mobile, announced this afternoon that customers with cost in mind (aren’t we all) will be able to pick up the Galaxy S II off-contract for only $299. As for a plan to accompany the year-old handset, customers will be able to get 100 minutes of talk, unlimited texts and 5GB of T-Mobile’s 4G data for only $30 a month. Of course, being off-contract means no monthly fees, which is certainly welcomed. However, if you are not held down too much by cost, we suggest you hit up the Galaxy Nexus directly from Google and go with T-Mobile’s up coming $30 a month plan that features unlimited data. You will definitely get a better phone. If a month-to-month plan sounds better, nothing should stop you from going after Walmart’s latest offering. Check out the full press release below:
Today, T-Mobile and Walmart announced a national retail exclusive of the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S™ II as a no annual contract kitted option, providing a premium smartphone experience at a discounted price for no annual contract customers.

With the addition of the Galaxy S II to the lineup of no annual contract devices offered at Walmart, customers have access to premium devices, fast nationwide 4G network speeds and affordable service plan prices – all without an annual contract.
