HTC One M8

Verizon had the retail store lock down on the new HTC One M8 since the initial release, but now those of you with AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint can get in on the brick-and-mortar sales fun as well. T-Mobile's availability kicks off tomorrow. The HTC One M8 is now available for purchase in carriers stores that aren't sporting a big red checkmark.

You can pick up a new HTC One in various shades of gray starting at $199 on contract. If SIM-free is more your thing, you can order the HTC One M8 direct from HTC, as well as the the Google Play edition from Google Play for $699.

I was told from a T-Mobile rep that they wouldn't get the M8 until Saturday the 12th. I went yesterday morning trying to check one out and it wasn't there.

I just checked at a store in Boston, they said they'd have three of them for sale tomorrow.

I checked out the lumia icon in a Verizon store about a week ago. That phone is waaay too thick, it didn't feel good in the hand imo. I'd say go for the m8

I didn't mind it in hand but the Lumia ICON is boxy as hell. It felt weird. But it was not bad for a 5 inch screen phone. I am going for the M8, I don't think I can live with the shortcoming of WP for an extended period. Especially if I'm buying off contract.

But you know how Verizon works and the GPE is more expensive than the Verizon version too. Might as well buy the Verizon one off contract and root it and pocket $100.

Yeah every true. I ordered mine from HTC directly cause I didn't want to wait for T-Mobile. Also I live in Southern California so I get use of T-Mobile's reframed 1900mhz. Now that S-off is available getting a carrier branded M8 and messing with it is the best way to go if you want to save some money

I also got one from the att store on Saturday. The employee told me they weren't gonna start selling them until the 11th alongside the s5 but they got the OK to do so last Friday from the manager.

They were in display at best buy in Maryland U. S last weekend. I toyed with it for about 45 minutes. It's truly great device

I almost bought one at the Best Buy in Maryland (DC suburb) last week (had 1 left in stock) but said only Sprint could do the One Up early upgrade. So is this article wrong or are these stores selling something they weren't supposed to?

I'm eligible for AT&T "NEXT", but I don't know if I can get the phone from best buy instead, because I want the gold color. (because the Gold one is best buy exclusive). I mean, can I get it from best buy under NEXT, from AT&T?

Picked up the M8 here in Charlotte from AT&T on 4/8...maybe they weren't suppose to sell yet?

I got my HTC M8 from a sprint store last week. it was mall store. I Went in at 10am on April 4th the guy said he was expecting them to come in via Fedex later that afternoon. I waited around. got some lunch came back and sure enough they did.

maybe they got it by mistake or got them early or maybe he sold it to me early but nontheless I had it for a week now.

Anyone who goes and buys a new smartphone during the first 3-6 months has too much $ to burn, if you need a practically new phone right away and don't want to sign up for a new two year lock down agreement, I suggest you go check www.swappa.com or www.ebay.com and get a nice phone for half the price, the S4 can be had on swappa for $300-$400 in great shape, the same can be said for the HTC One, or LG G2, and many others.

Not everyone signs an agreement. Some people just buy the device out right. And what we do with our money is pretty much up to us. We earned it.

Isn't this kind of a circular fallacy? If the people who buy new phones have too much $$$ to burn, then if they want a like new phone, they should go to a site that sells used phones that were bought new by someone else who had too much $$$ to burn. So that someone else could have bought a used phone from another someone else who had too much $$$$ to burn and bought a new phone. ...just poking fun.

I was due for an upgrade from my EVO LTE and I wanted the phone the same day, not wait a week or so...

its my money. I decide how to spend it. Not you.

Well if you need more $ to burn then you need to start making more of it. I can show you how to get paid every 30 days when people pay their bills. An extra 4k/5k a month.

I was gung ho for the M8 but honestly the AC guys reviews have me not so sure...and I know..I'm coming from my S3 so it would still be a leap

My wife got one right from a Sprint store last Friday night. It was a mall store but they had them and she walked out with it that night.

I'm still on the fence about upgrading to the M8, but I'll be sure to check it out at the Sprint Store. And I think I might prefer the Glacier Silver rather than the popular Gunmetal Gray. The white trim on the silver One seems less jarring, but maybe that isn't the case in-person.
