T-Mobile to offer Galaxy S5 at $0 upfront cost, US Cellular giving $50 Play Store credit on pre-orders
Pricing details for the Galaxy S5 from carriers in the US are coming in thick and fast since AT&T announced its price for the flagship last night, with T-Mobile and US Cellular following suit. T-Mobile will be offering the Galaxy S5 on $0 upfront payment and taking pre-orders from March 24th. Since the carrier doesn’t do contracts anymore, you’ll have to pay for the handset through $27.50 monthly installments for 24 months, which comes to a total of $660, or pay the entire amount upfront if you so desire. T-Mobile hasn’t mentioned anything about the Gear 2 or Gear Fit, but we’d assume that information will be out pretty soon.
As for US Cellular, the fifth-largest US carrier will be matching AT&T’s price model and offering the Galaxy S5 for $199.99 on contract. Pre-orders begin today, and those who pre-order will get a free $50 Google Play gift card as a bonus. Both US Cellular and T-Mobile will begin selling the device on April 11 like everyone else, so if you’re hoping to get your hands on Samsung’s water-resistant, fingerprint scanner-toting flagship, you’d want to sign up as soon as pre-orders go live.
