The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note is now on sale for $249.99 on contract. The note is actually free on Walmart wireless with a 2 year contract and $350 off contract. At that price it’s definitely is not a bad deal at all. Even at a year old. It is kinda lame that the only real improvement the Galaxy Note gets on T-Mobile is it has ICS right out of the box.
T-Mobile USA has Value plans which are bring-your-own-device. They don’t offer subsidized phone prices, but the monthly rates are lower (fairly substantially so). As far as I’m aware, they’re the only of the major US carriers that lets you opt out of the subsidy like that (and actually save some).

The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note features include a 5.3-inch 1280×800 HD Super AMOLED display, 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 8-megapixel shooter on back, 2-megapixel camera around front, 1080p video capture, 1 GB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, S-Pen, 2,500mAh battery, HSPA+ 42Mbps connectivity, stock Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. Amazingly the Galaxy Note is still vastly outselling Galaxy S3 by far in Korea. Apparently Koreans love their big screens on the phones.
