Sprint’s prepaid wireless service, Boost Mobile, announced today that you can pick up the ZTE Speed for $100 off contract. The ZTE Speed doesn’t offer much in terms of specs, but getting Android 4.4 KitKat on a budget phone definitely isn’t something to scoff at.
Boost Mobile, the off-contract wireless division for Sprint, is now offering the ZTE Warp Sync for $179.99 off-contract.
You can get the device now online — in-store purchases can’t be made until September 1.
The phone is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat, has a 5-inch display, and a quad-core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. You’ll also get 2GB RAM and 8GB internal storage. There’s an 8MP rear shooter with a 1.6MP front camera. The battery is 2300mAh.

Motorola is back with yet another deal for its flagship Moto X smartphone. On Monday, January 27, Motorola is taking $100 off any Moto X without a contract. Any size, any backing, any carrier will be eligible. There is a catch, however. The deal will be active for just one hour — 3-4PM ET.
If you do miss out, Motorola still has something for you. They will take off $70 from any Moto X until Valentine’s Day, February 14. And yet again, this is without a contract. So missing the one hour window on Monday will only set you back $30. Not bad. For both deals, on-contract devices will seemingly not be included.
The latest deal for Black Friday is a price drop for the full retail price on three of Verizon’s best devices. The HTC One Max, LG G2, and DROID Ultra by Motorola are all seeing their full price drop. The One Max and G2 can be bought off-contract for $499 each and the DROID Ultra is available for $449. What is is interesting is that this may not even be a Black Friday-only deal. This could actually be a permanent drop on some great devices. To get your hands on these discounted off-contract phones, hit the source link to be taken to Verizon’s page.

As this week of Thanksgiving in the U.S. quickly transforms into a week of unbridled commercialism, the latest deal we have learned about comes to us from Motorola. They have posted on their Google+ page a teaser about an upcoming deal for Cyber Monday. For any Moto X bought off contract, including Moto Maker and Dev Edition, Motorola will be offering a $150 discount. That will bring the price down to $349. Motorola advises potential buyers to stay tuned for details. We will definitely keep our eyes open for more information as this will probably be a high demand deal and Motorola says supplies are limited.

Consumers now have the option to purchase their customized Moto X through Motorola’s Moto Maker website, as opposed to using AT&T’s site. AT&T customers can now purchase the 16GB model for $199 or the 32GB model for $299 on-contract through Motorola, or they can also choose to get the device off-contract for $579 (16GB) or $629 (32GB). The site promises to ship the device in 8 days. This is pretty good news for those looking for alternate ways to get the device. Verizon Wireless plans to have the phone available by August 29 in black and white, and will have the Moto Maker customization tool available to customers later on, most likely in September, along with other carriers.
On January 9th, T-Mobile will begin offering a $70 unlimited data plan for its Monthly4G users. Monthly4G is T-Mobile’s no-contract plan, meaning you are free to jump on and off ship at any time you please. $70 will get you unlimited talk, text, and data…with no little asterisk anywhere informing you that you’ll be throttled after 5GB. Nope, this time it’s truly unlimited so you can stream songs, video chat and watch YouTube to your data-hungry heart’s content! If you are one of the lucky few who were able to snag the elusive Nexus 4, you might want to try pairing that bad boy up with T-Mobile’s 42Mbps HSPA+ network for a truly speedy experience.
The Oppo Find 5′s spec sheet has popped up and is making its way to the US. The specs seem right up there with the current powerhouses and with an off-contract price of just $499, it is definitely something some people may look into. The device has a 5″ 1080p display, Qualcomm’s latest quad-core S4 pro processor, 2GB’s of RAM, Android 4.1.2, a 2,500 mAh battery and 16 GB’s of on board storage. Most importantly, the device will work on T-Mobile’s and AT&T’s HSPA+ network.
Will this off-contract device be something any of you guys willing to give a shot? Hopefully we’ll get some pictures of it soon!
If you are a big music fan, you might want to look at MetroPCS. They are offering a new plan called Rhapsody Unlimited Music for Android phones which features unlimited talk, text, web, multimedia streaming and downloading access, and of course, music. You will have access to the 12 million songs that are in the Rhapsody library which you can stream or download for listening without a connection.
All of this will cost $60 per month which is not bad, but with $50 to $55 unlimited plans offered elsewhere, the Rhapsody part of the equation does not feel like that much of a bonus. It’s is not a bad deal if you happen to be a fan of Rhapsody.
The price drop wars regarding Samsung’s Galaxy Tab just keep coming in, and the average consumer is certainly not complaining. For those of you who have had your eyes on a Galaxy Tab for a while and currently have an active account with Sprint, here’s your opportunity. According to a Best Buy source who tipped off the guys over at BGR with the pic above, the device will be available for $299 on a new two year agreement. The Tab will remain $499 on a month to month activation and $549 off contract. It’s unclear at this time whether or not both Best Buy and Sprint will be advertising for this, or by via Best Buy channels only. Either way, this has been by far the lowest we’ve seen the device drop on any carrier. What do you guys think? Is this enough of a price drop for you to run on out and grab one today? Let us know in the comments below.
