Best Buy Changes 4G ThunderBolt Price Plans

Minneapolis – Best Buy changed its mind about raising the HTC
ThunderBolt price to $299 on March 20 from $249.

The chain, which is the phone’s exclusive national retailer, will maintain
the $249 price beyond that time but didn’t specify for how long.

The $299 price was the price
listed in a Feb. 27 Sunday circular that

advertised the device

. The phone
went on sale today, March 17.

 “This pricing change reflects Best
Buy Mobile’s ongoing commitment to provide the most smartphones under one roof
with straightforward pricing, informed advice and someone to be there for the
life of your phone,” the company said.

Through its stores, Verizon Wireless is pricing the phone at $249
and hasn’t mentioned plans to raise the price after any introductory period. Online


is pricing it at $199.
