The LG 800g is available from TracFone.com today.
[EDIT 4/27/11: Note that the LG 800g is also now on Net10.com. I'll be posting about that later today.]
TracFone is bundling it with a 60-minute card, for a total price of $49.99. Subtract the regular price of the airtime card ($19.99), and you’re getting the phone for $29.99. Click here to check it out.
Don’t forget to use promotional code GI2011 when you check out to save another $5. Additionally, through Mothers’ Day, TracFone is offering free overnight shipping on all orders over $19.99. Add it all up and you can get hte phone the next business day for about $25, assuming you’ll use the card anyway.
I think this is a pretty good way to get this touch-screen device. Frankly, I’m shocked at the low price of this phone, considering that just a few years ago the LG 600g debuted with a retail price of $80.
One caveat here is that this bundle is not offered in all areas. You must have coverage from AT&T to get this particular device to work (although I suspect it will work on T-Mobile’s network soon, once they package it with the proper SIM card).
If you are certain that you have AT&T coverage in your area, but don’t see the 800g when you enter your ZIP at TracFone.com, you can try ZIP 53701. You will then see the 800g offered to you, and you’ll simply have to override the ZIP code on the delivery address before you check out.
