    Really thinking this Sprint deal might be for me. I carry around my Note 10.1 and run it off of Sprint hotspot all the time. It's a bit big as previously I carried a BlackBerry PlayBook and used the Note 10.1 at home only. But my PlayBook is dead beyond repair. I pay $20 a month for 2GB now for hotspot and only ever use it on my Note. This sounds great to me. Get the $15/ month plan for the same amount of data on a more portable tablet, no more using hotspot.
    I see myself grabbing one of these by the end of the week.

    Well, after thinking about it since this deal started.
    I finally went to a Sprint store last night and got it!

    Actually, they didn't have any in store so they ordered it, I'll probably have it by the weekend! :thumbup:

    Can anyone tell me if it is worth the $5 plan with all the other fees tacked on? This tablet would be my only sprint device on their service. I'd hate to have my bill be $10 or more due to all the other charges tacked on! Then it's almost not worth the $50 deal for this tablet.

    Also, what is the ETF for a tablet on sprint? Thanks.

    Another thought- can it be unlocked and used on tmobile's free 200 mb program for free?

    I'm about to go and get my new toy, well, it'll be my son's toy actually! :thumbup:

    I'll just get the $5/month plan since I don't need data on that tablet. I got it because it was free for me, yes, no $50 payment=free! Woohoo!!!

    Well I ordered mine today. Then I got an email stating that they were back ordered. Then around 10 that same night I received an email stating that it had been shipped! Mine not free, but I still feel it's a great deal for a small tab. You can always reduce the data package later so for now I'm going with the 2GB plan.

    You right, at $50 is still a great deal, and we can always change the plan. :thumbup:

    Looks great. I was a little concerned that the processor wasn't really what they claimed it was. As if you look in my attached screenshot from the Sprint site, I'm pretty sure I found something false.
    But dang I wish it had auto focus.

    glad I found this thread. been wanting a android tablet for a while now, (I have an ipad mini now, but I am just eager to get back into the android ecosystem!) seems this would be a good choice for me, email, photos, watching music videos, etc. will not cost me a lot if I do trade in my ipad mini. hmm.

    Hello Brad, just have in mind that you need to sign a two year contract to get the $49.99 deal for this tablet.
    Also, if you're going to use the mobile data, the $15/month plan for 2GB is probably your best bet.

    I would ask for an additional discount. I was able to get it for free without even asking, but they know me at that store.

    Good luck and enjoy, if you get it. :thumbup:

    I should have mine by Tuesday and as a former user of the ipad mini, if you want to do more with a tablet, then I don't think you will be disappointed. I sold my Mini after 4 months to get the original Galaxy Note 10.1. No regrets there. So I'm sure you will be happy if you want to do more with a tab than what iOS allows you.

    Wait, so you got the Wi-Fi version?
    You know we're talking about the Sprint version here, right?
    The one with 3G and 4G LTE.

    I got the Sprint Tab 3 the first week and had it a month. Ended up for a week stay in the hospital and will first few I couldn't sit with my laptop so it was my connection. This is no Nexus 7 or an iPad Air but for $50 up front and the $15 GB a month which to me is not going to lunch a few days a month, to say it is a bargain it is an understatement.
