T-Mobile subscribers can now pick up a Samsung Galaxy S2 smartphone through Wal-Mart with no annual contract required.

To grab that deal, you buy the Galaxy S2 for $299 and then pair it with a T-Mobile Monthly4G plan for a minimum of $30 per month. The Monthly4G plan offers unlimited Internet access with the first 5GB of data at 4G speeds, unlimited text, and 100 minutes of talk time with a charge of 10 cents per minute beyond the first 100 minutes.

But with no annual commitment, customers are free to cancel at any time.

Wal-Mart is also selling the Galaxy S2 through a Family Mobile service, another annual contract-free plan.

Costing $45 per month for the first line and $35 a month for each additional line, this plan provides unlimited Internet access through T-Mobile. The base plan plan includes the first 250MB of data at up to 3G speeds.

The Family Mobile service is available through Wal-Mart's Web site or through any of the company's retail outlets.
