Yesterday, we gave T-Mobile customers a much needed update on the stock status of the highly sought after Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone in the US. This week is launch week for many carriers and now we have some useful information for those of you who are interested in picking up the device from Sprint instead.
As many Sprint customers will be aware, the Galaxy S4 was due to arrive on the network on April 27, both in-store and online. However, due to global stock issues from Samsung, this date was held back as carriers struggled to meet demand from thirsty consumers who were eager to snap up a Galaxy S4 at the first opportunity.
The good news, is that Sprint has now sent out word informing customers that healthy Galaxy S4 stock is now starting to return at their brick and mortar stores. It looks like word has already spread in relation to online sales as well, as we experienced slow loading times, when trying to order a Galaxy S4 from Sprint’s online store directly.
Sprint has told AndroidGuys that inventory will be flowing in ‘on a daily basis’, so the best choice for you now may be to head into your nearest Sprint store and see if they have any stock left. Like other US carriers, the Galaxy S4 will be available from Sprint in a choice of two colors – either Black Mist or White Frost.
The price is set at $249.99 on a two-year contract, although you can get a $100 discount if you plan to switch your number over to Sprint’s network from a previous carrier. Alternatively, you can pay $599.99 outright if you want to pick up the device without a contract.
So there we have it – daily stock is apparently ‘flowing’ through at Sprint’s stores. The question is, have you been lucky enough to grab one already? Let us know how you have been getting on, both with in-store and online sales.
