You can say a lot of things about smartphone manufacturer HTC (TICKER), but don’t call it subtle. Its lineup of phones is a laundry list of superlatives, with names like Desire, Legend, Hero and Dream. It’s a bold naming strategy that says, “we think this phone is completely awesome, and so will you.”
Perhaps the best example of this is the Incredible, which was released earlier this year. Like many of HTC’s phones, it has lived up to its name. It features Android 2.2, the latest version of the popular operating system, and it earned rave reviews from major news outlets. Now you can get it at an incredible price.
LetsTalk.com regularly offers big discounts on phones, and right now the site is knocking $120 off the normal retail price of $200 for the HTC Incredible. Combine that with the coupon code 25RAFPCVER1 (courtesy of the good people over at DealTaker.com), and you wind up with a top of the line phone for $55.
The big caveat, of course, is that you have to sign up for a two-year contract with Verizon (Stock Quote: VZ), which gets pricey. However, without the contract, the Incredible is $599. The deal comes standard with a $29 monthly data plan, a $70 monthly voice plan and $5 a month for 250 text messages. Over the course of the contract, that package will run you more than $2,500, so suddenly that $25 coupon on the phone seems like small potatoes, accounting for less than 1% of the total package. There’s also a $35 activation free, and the monthly fees get higher if you want unlimited data or texting.
Still, big phone bills are a fact of life when it comes to smartphones, and if you’re already resigned to paying upwards of $100 a month and just want to get a great phone at a good price, this is an excellent deal.
