Amazon Fire phone price hits $199 without contract, year of Prime included

Remember that time that the Amazon Fire phone cost $199 with a two-year contract? Well now you can get it for the same price without any kind of commitment.

The Amazon Fire phone is now available for $199 unlocked and without a contract. The GSM device plays nicely with AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Simple Mobile and more, and each unit comes with a full year of Amazon Prime, which normally costs $99 on its own. The Fire phone launched in late July for $199 with a two-year contract or $649 without.

Since it comes with Amazon’s heavily-skinned version of Android and without any kind of Google apps support, the Fire phone isn’t going to appeal to folks that like their Android to be untouched. At $199 unlocked and with a full year of Prime, though, the device becomes pretty interesting, if anything just as a curiosity or backup phone.

What do you think of the Amazon Fire phone’s $199 no-contract price? Are you going to pick one up?

    There is a root for the phone but no ROMs are being made. Amazon bombed with this one. Great price but I like my OS to be as close to what Android is suppose to be.

    Dang, 2 weeks ago I paid my $99 for next year of prime and yesterday bought a Nexus 4 for my mom.

    This was the deal for me but too late.

      You can call amazon and they will refund your Prime membership. Not sure where you got the Nexus 4 from but they should have a 30 day return policy.
