Smile Tru phone and SIM starting at $7.98 total!! - 15-01-2011, 00:04

On, eBay, as of 4pm Pacific Time, Best Buy Outlet Store and CowBoom [a Best buy Company] have 40 "NEW Samsung E2210 Truphone Local Anywhere Cell Phone" These are a telephone and a SIM card. The starting price is $7.98 and free shipping. A while back, someone was asking how to get a Truphone SIM [now 'Tru'] for less than $30. This might be an option.

Does anyone know if the Samsung E2210 is quadband?

Sure don't give much info about the TruPhone SIM. Also, doesn't indicate whether the phone is SIM locked to that SIM.

...mike


Make use of T-M's UMA/wifi free calling from any place in the world with access to wifi. I use an LG G6, wife an S7)
A/o Oct 20, 2013 no need for intl prepaid as T-Mobile U.S. includes voice roaming at 20/min (in and out)., unlimited text (in and out), and unlimited data in 140+ countries.

My Plan -[6 lines] U.S. T-Mobile unlimited minutes (incoming and outgoing), unlimited text, fast data on each line. that $145/mo. total! . (In U.S. no surcharge for calling a cell.) If a line exceeds 2G of data in a month, pay $10 more for that line. [That only happens a couple times/year.

When calculating how much this is worth, realize the value on the SIM could be $7.50, rather than the current $15.00, and I think there were some that had $10.00.
Then as you say: Is it unlocked? We can hope.

I have now won an acution. Hopefully it will arrive before they are all gone so I can report whether the SIM is worth getting.

Hopefully, mine will arrive on Thursday. [I will then report.] As of Wednesday, the 19th, They have sold 40 and still have 40 more available for auction. Hopefully the prices will start to decline.

Would you please tell us how much you paid? I'm trying to get a feel for where I should be bidding.

I would also be interested to know if the SIM comes with $15 free credit.

I am a little hesitant to answer that. I paid 'too much' of course. I really wanted to get one as soon as possible. It was about the 30th auction. To get a feel, I would suggest you start watching the items [search 'Truphone'] ,there are currently 40. I think the prices are going to start to drop [hope, hope] I hope to get at least 3---it is cheaper to win one of these than to buy a spare battery. It is still before Noon here, and I expect UPS to arrive this afternoon. I wonder about the other bidders. Do they know what Truphone is or are they just buying the phone? Maybe some will try selling the Truphone package.
As of now, 40 have been sold and there are 40 on offer. I wonder how many they have to sell? More thoughts and hopefully a report later.
