Earlier today, T-Mobile ran a "huge" promotion, lowering the price of the Samsung Vibrant to $99.99 in an exclusive online deal. Since Amazon.com, Wirefly.com, and others have had the $99.99 price tag for ages now, we didn't give T-Mobile's deal much coverage (well, any coverage really). Many other sites did, however.

Seeing this, Amazon.com had a quick huddle this afternoon and came back with an even better offer of just $0.01 for new activations. That's 1 penny short of being absolutely free.

Sadly, upgrades are still $149.99 but those of you looking for that extra kick in the butt to switch over to T-Mo may have just run into the right boot.

Hit up the T-Mobile Samsung Vibrant AmazonWireless page to grab the deal before it runs out (which is likely very soon).

    I am becoming more and more tired of my vibrants glitches. I love the design, and even kinda like tw3.0.. But man the internet crashes alot. I mean my g1 wasn't the best looking phone but it worked. Well. I do hate the lag it sometimes gets. But its not often. And being a root noob I have no idea how to do the lag fix. And would I have trouble updating to froyo after? sigh. Is it even worth the trouble. Maybe stick it out till froyo rolls out.

      Froyo will fix a lot of your issues, I'm sure. I haven't heard of Vibrant being this bad though...

    Root Noob: Same here. Fixing lack is deleting internal memory apps that are sucking your speed (imho). Root explorer (http://www.androlib.com/android.application.com-speedsoftware-rootexplorer-Fiq.aspx) requires super access, but if you have rooted properly, this paid app will let you into the system app folder to delete all of the junk that you have. Delete anything that is TMO bloatware. Careful though don't go too crazy. after 6 apps you should get rid of your lag. Well worth the cost. Bought two, one for my wife and i. Haven't regretted it.

    is it conceivable that I get on this deal pay ~70 for the first 2 weeks then cancel and pay 200 and this way I got the phone with half its price tag. can somebody tell me where I went wrong on my logic. thanks

      I just read the deal's terms and conditions (which you should too), and Amazon apparently has their own ETF feed, likely in addition to T-Mo's.

    Well wal-mart does sell the phone for $98 before taxes but you must be eligible for a FULL upgrade...but that's a smokin deal if u are! This is for tmobile btw
