Best Buy’s “Free Phone Wednesday” Kicks Off Tomorrow: Atrix, Nexus S 4G and Fascinate Available at No Cost

When we received a tip earlier in the week that Best Buy was planning something major for August 17 and 22, we were hoping for the world, but were pretty sure they were going to be running free phone promos instead.  Free phones were confirmed today through a small press release.  So for one day only (tomorrow), you can cruise into a Best Buy and pick up an Atrix 4G, Nexus S 4G or Samsung Fascinate for free with a new 2-year contract.  And yes, I said Fascinate – the same phone that Verizon no longer carries.

Hopefully they pick a better Verizon option on the 22nd.

Cheers ___!

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

      Holly 
    Hotchner is the director of the Museum   of Arts and Design. She  says the ladies barbour
    jackets
    museum 
    considers jewelry as one of the most important forms of art today. She
    notes  that a piece of jewelry
    kid’s barbour
    jacket
    is not  just a small version of a sculpture.

    What Android phone should I get? I still have the old V3 from – from – forever ago. I am in the market for a phone and was just about to run down there and pick up that Atrix.
    Good advise please.

    The Fascinate is the worst android phone on the market. It lags like crazy and has tons of bugs and lockups. I’ve had it for a year now and I’m counting the days until I can upgrade.

    I must voice my gratitude for your generosity for individuals that must have help with in this matter. Your real dedication to passing the solution all over had become quite significant and has always empowered regular people much like me to realize their endeavors. The warm and friendly publication can mean a whole lot to me and further more to my colleagues. Thank you; from each one of us.

    I got the Fascinate for my wife free on Black Friday last year.  I wouldn’t do it again.

      Does this service have wet works contractors cheap? I’m thinking of putting a contract out in your name.

    Any news on a free T-mobile phone?  My girlfriend currently has an HD2 and she hates the thing.  She is going crazy to get an upgrade and these days it seems they are giving out amazing phones for free (with a 2 year contract of course).

    Check out my new tech blog:  www.brokemanstech.com

      I ate your girlfriend. She tasted of sexual frustration, and spam.

  • Aif

    When I get a new phone (if that is), it will beuncommitted. To stave off being locked-in and the fact they’re going quadcore next year and better Verizon LTE’s with greater battery life are possible.

  • Glen

    By next February, when I qualify for an upgrade, the Thunderbolt or Samsung Galaxy should be free the way you guys talk!  Maybe even a Bionic Droid!!

    I guess this wouldn’t be a bad deal as long as Cyanogen Mod 7 is loaded on it. I am wondering if next Wednesday’s phone will be awesome or a dud. I guess get this and then return it if something else comes up that’s better…

    Nexus S 4G for ATT an option?

    Pick up the Moto Atrix 4G, with the new Gingerbread update it’s a great phone. Bought mine a few weeks ago.

    Anyone remember the Motorola StarTrac line of phones? Such great phones.

        Yes, it was Star Tac, and mine was badass, I love how it clicked so snugly into the belt holder, with a resounding click.

    I bought the Samsung Fascinate for $200 11 months ago not knowing it would be given out like candy several months later.

      Welcome to the world of technology… lol. I’m sure 10 months from now the HTC Thunderbolt I paid $250 for will be free, if not sooner. *shrug*

        the thing is, i’m stuck with this phone for another year…and it’s 3G -____-

    Would I still be able to do this if I’m not eligible for an upgrade on Verizon? not that I’m getting the Fascinate, but if a better phone comes out, I might get that.

    • http://twitter.com/piinkhibiscus bethinabox

      Nope you have to be eligible for an upgrade, or add a new line, to get it for free.

  • Flip74k

    Is this only for a new contract or a upgrade as well??

    • Bethany Parris

      It’ll be for an upgrade as well

  • http://www.facebook.com/bryanpwilliams Bryan Williams

    It’s “free” for a reason.  All this is going to do is give Android a bad name to the people who aren’t smart enough to say no.

  • Bethany Parris

    Eh, they’re probably just trying to move through our Fascinate inventory to make room for something else. I don’t know that we’ve gotten a new shipment for a little while so hopefully that’s why they’re doing that.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe you can even have gingerbread on that fascinate.

  • Scott Willenborg

    The Fascinate?  The Fu… maybe on the 22nd they’ll have the Motorola Razr for free… I hear they’re REALLY popular.

    … because “Free Phone Friday” would make too much sense.

  • T Hall

    If anyone gets a free phone, just do not, absolutely do not purchase the scam black tie insurance.

    • Guest

      why is there insurance a scam? i was thinking about getting my next phone from there because of it.

      • T Hall

        It is not great at all.  Just search best buy black tie scam and read the horror stories.  I am sure there are some people who have had good luck with it, but I had a terrible experience.  

        6+ weeks of waiting for my phone, getting a really bad loaner phone with a cracked screen, finally getting my fixed phone to find out it was not reassembled correctly, and then they finally found me a refurbed phone.  Absolutely terrible service.  

        I have dealt with Assurion a few times, and while the deductible is expensive, the service is great.  I would gladly pay a deductible rather than wait for the Geek Clowns to fix my phone.

        • http://twitter.com/KansasJayhawker Jonathan Reid

          Assurion has always been awesome with me as well. Timely service and a simple process. If you pay the full two years of insurance cost at the time of purchase (when you buy or upgrade at vzw) you can save money and the deducible will also be cheaper (70 bucks rather than 100 if I remember correctly).

          • Granted

            I just take real good care of my phones. You should also read up on how bad it is to go with these extra insurance packages. If you’re worried about the phone being defective, that usually happens early, so it’s covered under the warranty.

        • Bethany Parris

          FYI BBYM now does rapid exchange for all our phones (unless there is no inventory) so it’s typically a matter of days for a replacement. Also, blame your local Best Buy for the crappy loaner, my store would NEVER give out a loaner with a cracked screen. We also use a different company now for repairs, anyway. 

          • T Hall

            Here is the problem “(unless there is no inventory)”.  I have never heard of someone actually getting a rapid exchange.  That is what they tell people to sell their product but if your phone is no longer made or sold, you are SOL, or you were in my case.  Yes you are correct in blaming my local Best Buy giving out a phone with a cracked screen.  

          • http://twitter.com/piinkhibiscus bethinabox

            Honestly, I’ve set up service orders for dozens of phones since we switched to rapid exchange a couple months back… I’ve sent maybe FIVE phones for repair instead of rapid exchange. Maybe I’ve been brainwashed by the company, but I really do support our protection plan. It sucks that you’ve had so many issues or heard about other people having issues, but I think we’re working out a lot of the kinks in the program. 

          • T Hall

            I know that some people have good experiences with it, but there are too many people that have had a terrible experience.  I for one will never trust Best Buy again, and will never shop there at any point in the future.  Amazon FTW.

      I have patented the douche-y use of the word ‘first’ followed by a single exclamation point (i.e.: first!).  I am going to file suit in District Court this afternoon unless you pay me royalties.  I will require the second letter “T” in your name.  I’ll be adding it to mine, from now on you’re “Mat” as in ‘bath-mat’ and I’m Scottt.

      That looks totally pimp.
