Best Buy doing a blue Galaxy S4 for AT&T, Sprint and Verizon


Not that I am interested but what the fuck is wrong with T-Mobile not offering assorted colors of devices like other carriers?

Get the AT&T or Verizon one and unlock it. Both support HSPA. Both support band 4 LTE. Profit

Is there any indication of the model number for the Sprint version? Rumor (and by that I mean FCC filings) has it that there's a tri-band LTE version of the S4 coming for Sprint with a "T" after the model number.

I agree, this would be very helpful information. I had been looking at the Nexus 5, G2, and the re-released S4 with tri-band support as the candidates for my next phone.

Users are reporting issues where the Sprint G2 & Nexus 5 do not support simultaneous data & voice. I'm hoping the tri-band S4 doesn't have this issue.

Lol, when all was said and done, I paid roughly $180 for my Note 3. On Sprint, it was 349$. An informed consumer is a good consumer.

Just to give you a rough idea here in the UK i paid £70 up front and then £47 per month for my Note 3 and that nabs me unlimited mins, texts and 10gb of data which im happy with.

Didn't Sprint launch the S4 @ $249?

Sidenote Radio Shack has S4 for $49 on black Friday. ...

Damn $250 still for an S4.

Tri-Band, S800 on Sprint would make sense though.

I like how this phone is being sold on VZW, AT&T, and Sprint but the model shown here appears to be a T-Mobile model (See 4G LTE icon and signal icon)
