T-Mobile to Sell Samsung Galaxy S4 Online Starting April 24

April 17, 2013

Last month, T-Mobile said it would launch its version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Android smartphone on May 1st, a release date which was backed by a recent leak as well.

It turns out that date is specifically reserved for its retail stores, as T-Mobile has just announced it will begin selling the Galaxy S 4 online a full week earlier on April 24th. The handset is priced at $149.99 down plus $20 monthly device payments for 24 months for qualifying customers with the new Simple Choice Plan.

Unlike AT&T and Sprint, it appears T-Mobile will not be holding pre-orders for the device.

Simple Choice Plan
T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan starts with a base rate of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds. Consumers can add up to 2GB of high-speed 4G data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages, and no restrictive annual service contracts.

T-Mobile 4G LTE Network
T-Mobile’s 4G LTE rollout complements its existing nationwide 4G network covering 225 million people, which third-party tests show already rivals or beats existing LTE networks in many markets. T-Mobile’s advanced 4G LTE network is currently available in seven metropolitan areas: Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C. The company expects to reach 100 million people with 4G LTE by midyear and 200 million nationwide by the end of 2013. 4G LTE devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will automatically and seamlessly connect to T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G network where 4G LTE has not yet launched.
