Disney Mobile is looking to leverage the holiday season by cutting the prices of their handsets and giving away a month of service for free. The free month only applies to those who sign up before December 31st. While some have pointed to the move as the first steps toward the MVNO graveyard, to be fair, the incumbent carriers have also offered their own promotions this season with new handsets, websites and rate plans. Disney is currently throwing in its Pantech flip-phone (photo) for free with a service plan--it used to cost $60. The MVNO's red LG clamshell is now selling for $50, down from $110. Disney also plans to release a limited edition "Steamboat Willie"-themed phone (photo) that includes an illustration of the black-and-white first incarnation of the mouse.
