Common Questions


Nokia G50 prices will vary depending on retailer, age, special offers and whether or not it's purchased with a service plan. If purchased with a 2 year service contract for example, you would likely pay much less for the phone itself up front. Nokia's suggested retail price is $299.99. You can compare G50 prices from around the web here on The Informr.
