Samsung Galaxy S4 availability update on T-Mobile

By Alan Ng - Apr 29, 2013

We have an update for those of you looking to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S4 handset on T-Mobile, with Samsung’s latest flagship expected to start showing up this week in the US after a long wait and after an initial launch in Europe. We previously told you that May 8 was the date for when the device will be available, but we’ve since heard that you may have to wait a week extra to be able to snap up a Galaxy S4 without any problems.

In a matter of hours, T-Mobile’s homepage should be changing to accomodate the glorious start of Samsung Galaxy S4 online sales. The price will be $149 as a down payment then $20 per month for 24 months, or $630 for those who are planning to buy the phone outright, unlocked and without being tied down to a contract.

For everyone else, the wait still continues to be able to snap up a Galaxy S4 from an actual T-Mobile store. We’re hear to tell you that T-Mobile has sent out word that only select T-Mobile stores will have Galaxy S4 stock on May 8. It means that you’ll have to check with your local store to see if you are lucky, but if not – May 15 is now the final date for when all other Galaxy S4 sales will begin.

That is perhaps a little disappointing to find out that the wait may now continue until the middle of May. Then again, it is still earlier than Verizon customers and let’s not forget that this is arguably Samsung’s most anticipated smartphone launch in their history.

The question is, are you holding on to pick up the device from T-Mobile, or have you already opted for Sprint, AT&T or Verizon instead?
