New-entrant Mobilicity is going after business from every angle and they are doing very well it seems by announcing recent subscriber numbers. They have new phones and new monthly rate promo plans that are making other carriers adjust their pricing. Now it seems they are adding to the goodness by offering up a $50 Mail-In rebate on a few select devices.
According to the fine print it states that “Mail-In rebate offer only valid on purchases of the applicable handsets and activations from December 18- December 31, 2010. Applicable handsets are LG Wink, MobiFlip and Nokia 5230. Valid on new activations only; upgrades are not applicable for this offer. Valid on a new handset purchase only, refurbished or previously activated handsets excluded. Limit of (1) rebate per receipt and activation. Activated account must be in active status for 31 days after activation to qualify for rebate. Please allow approximately 8 weeks or more for rebate.”
So there you have it… can’t get more clear than fine print. Did you notice something in there though. A new and completely unknown device called the “MobiFlip” is part of the deal. It’s probably a Mobilicity branded device similar to the Mobilicity Totem. No word on prices or a launch date but it’ll be between the 18th and 31st.
The LG Wink currently retails for $99.99 no-contract and the Nokia 5230 is available for $149.99.
