Let’s face it, smartphones are expensive. Even with carrier subsidies, high-end handsets can easily set you back hundreds of dollars. If you want the best, without paying top dollar, AT&T is now offering the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for $.99.
As you probably already guessed, there is a catch here. AT&T’s offer is for a refurbished model with a 90 day warranty. You also will be required to sign a two year contract. Additionally, the deal is only for today, so you better make your mind up about it quickly.
So is it worth it going the refurbished route? That’s honestly up to you, but keep in mind that refurbished handsets are brought back to original standard and often enough there is really no way on the surface to tell that it isn’t a brand new device. Of course some people just like the peace of mind of knowing they are the first person to use their phone.
AT&T is offering the handset in both white or gray, and is even throwing free shipping into the offer. This is a great way to get your hands on a quad-core 5.5-inch monster of a phone, without having to put hardly anything down upfront. Especially when you consider the normal price for a new handset from AT&T is $299.99 with contract.
What do you think, worth biting on this deal or not?

Not for AT&T hit or miss LTE 4G coverage in San Jose….At work my co-worker can barely get a single, always on HSPA+ if he does pick up LTE, it’s 2-3 mbps..This is the only place I want blazing fast LTE. I have WIFI at home
Is that downtown San Jose?
My sister lives in the Milpitas and San Jose area and I get 20 Mbps download on AT&T LTE.
I work close to Kelly Park if you are familiar with San Jose off senter. I have seen amazing speeds in Willow Glen of Lincoln and Willow..I think it was like 48 mbps..
If I could afford to add another line, I’d do this in a heartbeat. Been looking to trade up to a Note 2 from my S3 for a while now.
Sorry AT&T, when I add up the cost of your 2-year contract, you’re STILL ripping me off vs buying the phone unlocked and going prepaid unlimited.
Not to mention the $36 activation fee.
Agreed. Even with the LTE capabilities it isn’t worth it for me.
I bought galaxy note 2 for 249.99 last week……
Same here but few week ago…
