Sponsor post: AT&T HTC Aria and other Android phones for free

Next time you are in the market for an Android phone (or any cell phone), take some time and browse the Android and Me Cell Phone Shop. We searched long and hard to find the best partner who could offer the lowest prices and we were pleased to finally team up with Simplexity (the guys behind Wirefly).

Our store offers all the same phones, plans, features, warranties, and networks offered by your local retail stores plus a wider selection, lower prices, no waiting in line, and free returns. As some of you might have seen from previous launches, the prices are often below what the carrier offers and you never have to hassle with those lame mail in rebates.

Right now we got the new AT&T HTC Aria at free for new customers and existing customers who wish to upgrade their plan. If you are looking for a new account contract, the activation fee is waived and standard shipping via FedEx is free.

The Aria is AT&T’s first phone with Android 2.1 and perfect for those looking to pickup an entry level, mid-range smartphone. We’ve been pretty hard on AT&T in the past because they were slow to jump on the Android bandwagon, but things have turned around recently with their new lower-priced data plans and expansion of HSPA+ to 250 million people in 2010.

If you have any feedback or suggestions on the store, please let us know and we will do our best to address them. Outside of the industry-wide shortages, we have been completely satisfied with our store and the deals we have been able to offer. You can fully expect we will carry every new Android phone from the Tier 1 carriers, so keep us in mind next time you are looking to save some money.

    You fail to mention in your sponsored post how the phone and everyone of their Android phones is crippled and doesn’t allow you to have the full Google experience.

      @UDTSeal Cap,
      I have heard that Aria is a first android phone on AT&T which offers a real Android experience. Isn’t it true?

      The Aria has all the Google apps and Google search. AT&T does not allow you to install non-Market apps, but you can easily push them over to your device via USB.

    Yesterday I went to a local AT&T store to take a look at HTC Aria and possible to buy it forum a full price without a contact for my wife. They not only didn’t have it in stock, they even didn’t know such a phone exists on AT&T.

    Looks like the deal for existing customers comes with a catch. If you upgraded in the last 22 months, you’d pay at least $79.99 extra for the Aria. If your monthly bill is >$100, you have to be at least 12 months into contract.

    6 months into contract on a AT&T family plan >$100. Still looking for a good free Android phone!
