T-Mobile starts taking orders, Verizon ships some units of the Galaxy Note 5 early
Major carriers in the United States have started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 5 starting today but already there are multiple reports of carriers shipping some units early. First it was AT&T that sent out an order ahead of time and now Verizon has reportedly shipped some units early as well. T-Mobile was the only major carrier that hadn’t provided any details about when it would start taking pre-orders, turns out the carrier isn’t even bothering with pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 5.
Customers will be able to order the Galaxy Note 5 straightaway from T-Mobile instead starting today, orders can be placed over the phone or through the carrier’s website whereas in-store sales will kick off on August 21. T-Mobile CEO John Legere has said that Magenta will start shipping units to customers “ASAP.” T-Mobile will have the Galaxy Note 5 available in Black Sapphire and White Pearl colors, the 32GB model is priced at $699.99 which will be broken up into 24 monthly payments on the carrier’s equipment installment plan.
