T-Mobile Cuts BlackBerry Prices, Drops Mail-in Rebates

by Reads (5,455)

T-Mobile has either cut the prices for many of its BlackBerrys, stopped requiring mail-in rebates, or both. This includes new models and ones that have been in its product line-up for some time.

When this carrier released the BlackBerry Curve 8900  in February it sold for $200 with a two-year contract and $100 mail-in rebate. Today it’s going for $150 with contract but no mail-in rebate.

The Pearl Flip 8220, the first BlackBerry with a clamshell design, is selling for $100. This still requires a mail-in rebate, but is $50 less than the launch price.

The older Curve 8320 is $75 and the Curve 8820 is $100, neither of which requires a rebate.

And finally, it’s not a BlackBerry but it’s very similar —  the T-Mobile Dash is now going $40 with no rebate. Previously this device — which is expected to be replaced soon — was selling for $100 after a mail-in rebate.

Naturally, the obligatory two-year contract is still required to get all these prices.

Not Just T-Mobile
This isn’t the only carrier to drop BlackBerry prices this week.  On Wednesday, AT&T cut the cost of the BlackBerry Bold and the BlackBerry Curve 8900.

No reason was given for any of these price cuts, but the weak economy is surely playing a part.
