Buy a T-Mobile Dash smartphone and pocket $100 (after rebates)

Cell-phone reseller is offering the well-regarded T-Mobile Dash free with new service, and you can make up to $100 with a pair of mail-in rebates.


In the market for a new smartphone? Consider the T-Mobile Dash, a quad-band handset that compares favorably with the Motorola Q. has a pretty sweet deal going:

T-Mobile Dash: Free.

1GB microSD card: Free.

Shipping: Free.

Rebates: Up to $100.

Specifically, you automatically qualify for a $50 mail-in rebate on the phone, but you can get another $50 if you sign up for a $39.99-monthly (or higher) service plan and a $19.99-monthly data plan (fairly standard items for smartphone users anyway).

CNET and CNET readers alike had generally good things to say about the Dash, rating it in the 7-out-of-10 ballpark. Personally, I'm not a big fan of non-touchscreen Windows Mobile smartphones, but there's no denying the Dash packs a ton of power at a pretty unbeatable price.
