During the holiday Disney Mobile is reasoning customers into signing up for its service by means of lowering the cost of its handsets and offering a month of service for free if they sign on by Dec. 31.
Carrier's silver Pantech Corp. DM-P100 flip phone from Disney Mobile is available for free with a service plan, down from an initial price of $60. The carrier's red L200 clamshell from LG Electronics Co. Ltd., which was introduced at $110, is now selling for $50. The new prices are tied to a two-year contract and include a $100 instant rebate and a $50 mail-in rebate. The $50 rebate is only available through Dec. 31 on plans activated by Jan. 15.
Some time earlier Disney Mobile submitted the Federal Communications Commission to add a third handset to its line-up, the Pantech/Curitel PN-320. It is going to release a limited edition “Steamboat Willie”-themed handset, a silver flip phone with a cover that has an illustration of the black-and-white first cartoon incarnation of Mickey Mouse.
