Wirefly is notorious for its aggressive pricing when it comes to new phones, and we can't blame them: being an online-only seller, they need to offer something exciting to win customers over from the carriers themselves and other retail locations, such as Best Buy or Radioshack.

The T-Mobile G2 preorder deal that went live today is no exception - it beats out all competition:

  • $149.99 for new accounts ($199.99 for existing ones). Considering T-Mobile itself isn't even letting non-T-Mo customers preorder at all, this is a pretty damn good deal already. However, read on.
  • No tax - Wirefly.com doesn't charge tax, which makes this deal better than even Radioshack's $150 offer and is way under Best Buy's $200 price tag.
  • Free shipping - Wirefly is offering ground shipping for free, but in my experience they set your expectation low and then ship via 2-day shipping instead (though don't quote me on this).


For those in need of a quick specs recap, G2's beastly specs are below:

  • Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ MSM7230 mobile processor
