To get a free phone with a new service contract is the common thing in Europe. Usually you do not get free phone deals on new models in the United States directly from carriers, but you find them on 3rd party shops like LetsTalk.
LetsTalk is beating others like Amazon on free phone deals with contracts. Take for instance the HTC Fuze. It is free on LetsTalk, but Amazon.com only manages to give it to you for $99.99 with contract.The current bestsellers on LetsTalk are all free, with the T-Mobile Dash even making you $50. The bestseller right now is the T-Mobile Sidekick 2008 followed by the LG Vu CU 920 and the Samsung Instinct.
The BlackBerry Bold is also still free. We featured this Free BlackBerry Deal already last November.
Always read carefully on what service plans you actually need to sign to get the free deal. Make sure the plan actually fits to your usage. If not you are mostly better off to pay something for the phone and sign a lower fee service plan.
Find your free phone on LetsTalk now.
