This week’s specials are in, and the folks over at your local Best Buy Mobile location have a few solid treats in store. Free Phone Friday, for those who failed Obvious 101, is a promotion that gives customers a new selection of free phones each week in October… on Friday. Here is this week’s lot:

  • Samsung Fascinate (Verizon Wireless)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (AT&T)
  • Sanyo Zio (Sprint)
  • BlackBerry Bold 9700 (T-Mobile)

As you might imagine, each phone requires a new 2-year contract to be had for the low, low price of nada. As you also might imagine, this offer is only good for one day — Friday, October 22 — so get ready to head out bright and early Friday morning if you’d like to partake. Or, of course, you can just order these puppies up from the Best Buy Mobile website.
