The GALAXY S 4 is available with the recently released UNcarrier Simple Choice Plans which means there will not be any contract, but there will be additional monthly payments for the handset.
T-Mobile launched their LTE network back towards the end of March with coverage for seven markets. While seven markets is fairly small as compared to carriers such as Verizon Wireless and AT&T, T-Mobile had previously announced plans to have LTE available for 100 million users by mid-year and 200 million users by years end.
T-Mobile announced their new UNcarrier approach back in late-March and since that point they have begun offering the new Simple Choice plans. These plans are being touted as not having a two-year agreement and while that seems to be an accurate description, there is a catch. These plans offer devices with an initial downpayment followed by an additional 24 monthly payments.
