    Wahoo! Can't go wrong with a focus. even with the older specs the IS stool runs great. Hopefully some of the nw focus users will end up here in the forums.

    AT&T site shows the Focus at $49.99 with a 2 year contract and $15 data plan for 200MB a month.

    Maybe something special is happening locally by you.

    Probably, it's some kind of 50+ bucks data plan with a free samsung focus. It's a pretty good deal.

    I picked mine up on Friday August 26th, I reseached on At&t's site and it did say 49 dollars, when I got to the store, I was pleasantly suprised to see that it was no charge with a plan. Sold.

    Got my wife a Focus from amazon last week for a penny. If I knew it was free at the store I would've bought there! Could've saved myself a penny! :D

    The Focus really is an awesome phone. I can't wait to see what the next version is like.

    I wish I could trust AT&T to not drop my phone calls. They get all the bomb WP7 phones but they drop calls like pigeons drop poop on a statue. But this was a few years ago and maybe they've improved.

    Meh I wish I have AT&T. I just don't like their plans but my carrier is garbage, my phone is useless most of the time because I don't have 3G.

    I am not entirely surprise. AT&T will be carrying the HTC Titan and the Samsung SGH-i937 so it's likely cleaning out inventory.

    Best Buy has had the focus for free for a long time. No activation fees either.

    I look forward to when all the launch handsets are available free with a contract renewal or new contract. That is one thing that helped Android gain ground.

    People walked in wanting a "Droid phone" and walked out with a free An-"droid" phone.

    Could this be an indication a new Samsung Mango phone is on the way? Or maybe an indication Samsung is getting out of WP7 altogether?

    I've never had any problems with AT&T dropping calls. The only people I've known to have this problem have been iPhone users. I think I've dropped one call in the entire two years I've had AT&T service, which happened a couple times in the three years I had Virgin Mobile, so...I'm totally okay with that.

    If you checked into an AT&T corporate store on Foursquare over the last few months, they were offering the Samsung Focus for free.

    Just picked one up this weekend. Been waiting on new devices (My Zune crapped out last month) but couldn't pass up the free price. Loving it much better than my Iphone and lowered my monthly bill $10.
