Net10 prepares for Galaxy S II launch

When we checked a month ago it was just a rumor, but it is now clear that Net10 will get the Samsung Galaxy S II. It will be, by far, the best phone available from Net10, even though it’s a 2011 model. The thing I was wrong about: Price. Phandroid expected $350, but I expected cheaper. Turns out it will cost $400, which is quite a hunk a change from a carrier that typically sells discounted handsets. You can check it out at, but it’s not yet available for pre-order. In fact, it doesn’t even seem that the Zip code checker is working. Via]]>

    The Straight Talk version is now available for purchase from Straight Talk’s site for $400. Ships in 1-2 weeks, though.

    It’s about time Net10 got in the game. Great, affordable service but their phones have always been a bit lackluster. This is great news for me, a Net10 customer for over 5 years.
