The Samsung GALAXY S 4 was expected to be available with T-Mobile beginning on April 24, however that release has since been pushed up a bit. T-Mobile has recently released a statement which brings talk of an "unexpected delay with inventory deliveries." Basically, regardless of the reason for the delay, this means those who may have been planning to make a purchase still have a few days to wait.
T-Mobile has said the GALAXY S 4 will be available for online sales beginning on April 29. For those without a calendar handy, the 29th would be this coming Monday. Really just a small delay, but in a positive side, the carrier didn't offer anything new in terms of pricing. Of course, that is just another way of saying the price point hasn't changed.
Previous details from T-Mobile revealed the GALAXY S 4 would be selling with a downpayment of $149.99. This falls under those new UNcarrier Simple Choice Plan options which are contract free. In addition to the downpayment, those picking up a GALAXY S 4 with T-Mobile will also need to shell out an additional 24 payments of $20. That $20 is above the price of the plan you choose.
Those Simple Choice Plans begin at $50 per month and include unlimited talk, text and data as well as 500MB of high-speed data. If 500MB worth of high-speed data will not be enough, T-Mobile also offers the option to up that to 2GB or unlimited for $10 or $20 additional per month. Bottom line here, those looking for unlimited talk and text as well as unlimited data can expect to shell out $70 per month (plus the price of the monthly payments which would bring the total up to $90 per month).
