Deal: HTC One (M8) for $99 on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon

The HTC One (M8) sale we reported yesterday is now live. You can pick up an M8 for $99 – half off on-contract price – with the the signing of a two-year contract on AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon. The deal is live for 24 hours starting from last night at midnight, ending at 11:59PM CST tonight

We concluded in our review that the M8 was a great device with a gorgeous display, premium build quality, and a decent camera. Our only major gripe was the tallness of the device and its tendency to become slippery, but you still can’t really go wrong at this price. That is, unless you’re holding out for the mythical HTC One (M8) Prime, something HTC Product Manager Leigh Momii would really rather you not do.

If you want to hook up your lovely mother with a $99 One (M8) on contract, then follow the sale link below.

  • Too bad Sprint’s version isn’t even available… “Out of Stock” the entire day.

    OK guys, a number of you have commented on buying the phone, ETF’ing it and still paying less for it than full retail up front. My question to you… What happens when you deactivate that phone and an OTA goes out? Say I buy this phone. Pay the ETF and go to an MVNO. Where am I going to get my updates?

  • Joe Butler

    I like that HTC and Samsung are coming out with ‘Prime’ versions of their phones, whereas the G3, will just be the G3. xD

  • picaso86

    Am I the only one that doesn’t like this phone? design wise?

    • T4rd

      It’s definitely not perfect, but I’m liking it a lot so far. Biggest complaint is the power button location, but with the tap-to-wake feature, it alleviates a lot of the awkwardness. Bottom HTC bezel is not really noticeable while in use and since I came from a Note 2, this phone is totally useable with one hand, hah.

        I’m currently using a Lg g2 and I LOVE IT. I guess my HTC T-Bolt left a bad scar…

        • Hershel

          your problem is using an LG

        • T4rd

          LG botched pretty much every phone before the G2, so I was more leery against them than I was HTC, and my wife had the POS Rezound. But they handled and supported the One M7 well, so I gave the M8 a chance and am glad I did.

      I like it in terms of design/hardware…its the software that caused me to return it.

      • Hershel

        because you think sense is still the same as it was in 2011……

        you live a sad sad little life.

        • mcdonsco

          Was that sarcasm or are you really a complete Ahole?

          • Hershel

            sense has come a long way since 2011…. but for some they just love getting erections over stock android.

      That a trick question? Feel free to not like it.

    Just got mine Yesterday and already unlocked/S-Off’d, rooted and put Clean ROM on it. Not regretting it at all so far. Huge speed boost from my Note 2. Can’t go wrong for $150 ($30 upgrade fee + taxes) and I kept unlimited data. B-)

    • Jarrett Hickman

      Mind sharing how you did this without loosing your unlimited?

      • PoisonApple31

        He probably signed another two year contract on Mommy’s line and is using the equipment for himself, while Mommy goes back to her iPhone 4. (That’s what I would do lol)

        • MrIg0Hard

          Yeah either that way or add a line which I’ve done both over the years. Just checking to see if another way had surfaced.

        • T4rd

          Not far from it, hah. I brought my mom onto my Verizon account a couple years ago pretty much just to use her line to transfer upgrades to, lol. I got her an old iPhone 4 to use when she signed on too and I got a new Note 2 at the time with her new line, hah. This time I stole my wife’s upgrade and transferred it to my mom’s line (since my wife has unlimited data as well) to get my M8 (wife is on a GS4, so she’s good still). I did get my mom a nice Moto X off Swappa for Mothers Day though. I think she’ll be happy with that even coming from iOS (hopefully).

          But there is this method that works for most people too: http://androidforums.com/verizon/844803-upgrade-your-device-maintain-udp-using-best-buy.html#post6556840

            Dpuble check unlimited. Verizon follows ESNs that were bought at a discount. If activated on unlimited data it automatically kicks it.

          • T4rd

            Just checked.. still unlimited on mine and my wife’s line. I haven’t had an issue stealing upgrades the last 3 times I’ve done this, so that’s news to me, but apparently not the case.

    • Hershel

      its even faster when you just leave it stock

      • T4rd

        Clean ROM is pretty much a de-bloated stock ROM, so not really. 😉

        • Hershel

          depends on what you call bloat…..

          • T4rd

            Carrier/Verizon apps and Blinkfeed. I played with the stock ROM for a few hours with all my apps installed. Clean ROM is just as fast, if not faster and I couldn’t imagine the phone being more responsive right now.

  • cizzlen

    I actually right clicked, save as’d that picture.

    “You can pick up an M8 for $99 – half off on-contract price ”

    Those who skimmed through this article definitely did a double take right there…
