T-Mobile today announced that its variant of the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be available for preorder beginning March 24. T-Mobile is offering the device for $0 down, followed by 24 monthly payments of $27.50 (~$660 total over two years). Those who preorder before March 31 will be eligible for $120 off the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3. T-Mobile indicated that more than 500,000 people have preregistered for information about the GS5, but people who actually preorder before March 31 will be the first to receive it once it goes on sale. T-Mobile didn't say when the device might ship, nor did it announce plans to carry the Gear 2 or Gear Fit wearable devices.
Eric, you wrote both articles on the Galaxy S5 for T-Mobile and AT&T. Even though both carriers are essentially pricing it the same, you wrote them as if both are offering completely different pricing plans. AT&T offers a $0 down option, yet you just mentioned the monthly fee and full retail. But the title of your T-Mobile article is that they are offering it for $0 down, with a little blurb about 2 year price. Why the discrepancy in how the articles were written? Always like reading your articles but these struck me as not real balanced. Thanks.
err. maybe MOST att customers buy it on 2 years contracts att 199$ and MOST tmobile customers buy it with 0$ down. that is why. who care about att also do 0$ down, not many att customers care about it.
I wrote the articles the way I did because AT&T Next Plans are always $0 down. T-Mobile often charges a $99 downpayment for some devices. T-Mo is offering the $0 downpayment on the GS5 for a limited time only, that's why I called it out. T-Mo's press ... (continues)
I hope T-Mo will offer the same for the "All New HTC One" Samsung's Galaxy S line is overrated and gimmicky. It's the iPhone of Android. We need more choices. The S5 is probably the ugliest looking thing I've seen come out of Samsung. Look at that back. YUCK!
You mean the $0 down thing? T-Mobile offers $0 down on ALL of their phones, iPhone, Galaxy, HTC, Lumias, you name it. They've been doing the $0 down thing for at least a couple months now and seem in no particular hurry to stop.
