For months I’ve been kicking myself that I missed out on the free iPhone 3 from Best Buy that required a new 2-year contract with AT&T last August. Guess what? It’s back! That, or you can choose one of 61 other phones free from Best Buy when you sign a new 2-year contract. Phones from every major carrier are available. Offer runs through December 31.

I came across this deal yesterday as I labored to find a new phone for myself, after dropping my Blackberry and breaking the screen beyond repair. I will say that I opted against any of these phones because buying a Samsung Galaxy S II outright, for a whooping $600, coupled with a $60/month no-contract plan from T-Mobile is cheaper over the course of 24 months; it will save me $1,680 in 2 years over what I was paying with AT&T, which more than pays for the new phone. But, not everyone wants to shell out the cash for a new phone and it’s rare to have this many free phones to choose from.

Two very popular phones that are included in this promotion include:

iPhone 3 8GB from Best Buy retails for $499.99. Laura got this phone in August, when a similar deal was available, and told me she really likes her phone.

Another popular phone is the Samsung Galaxy S which retails for $649.99, but is free with a new 2-year contract.

(If you can afford the phone outright and are okay with T-Mobile, be sure to check out their much cheaper Monthly 4G plans; the data component on the plan includes wifi calling and ability to tether the phone as a modem to one device at a time.)

In addition to these two there are 43 Android phones available and 46 options that are 4G.

Your turn: Besides the quality of call reception, what do you look for in a phone and phone provider?

    Just be sure to read the terms of service. Tmobile does offer unlimited plans but they decrease your speed once you reach a certain amount of useage. I pay more per month but I use my phone as a computer every day for work and home and I'd reach the limit in a matter of a week, it's worth it for me.

    Thanks for the new info, Carrie. I've enjoyed paying $106.88/year (roughly 1000 min.) for my no contract T-mobiIe talk & text phone for the last 6 years or so. And I'm realizing that there are a few instances when apps would come in really handy. Grocery lists that I wouldn't loose between the house and grocery store, evaluations about the movies & games that my kids are asking me about in the store, comparison shopping in one place, a couple of games while we wait for the doctor are the big ones for me.

    I didn't realize the no contract option was reasonably priced. Please update us on how you like the service.
