A 4 GB memory card is included and the phone supports cards up to 32 GB. The Galaxy Indulge will be available by the end of this week for $399 with no contract and unlimited usage plans starting at $50/month. MetroPCS was also first to market with an LTE phone of any type in late 2010 with the Samsung Craft.
