But it is the Classic Plan where we can make our comparison to the other carriers. With this plan, the phone will cost $419.99 before a $50 mail in rebate takes the price down to $369.99, $70 higher than the expected $299.99 price that Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are expected to ask for the device with a signed two-year pact. Of course, depending on what plan you choose, at the end of the contract you might actually have paid less with T-Mobile overall even taking the $70 differential in the price of the phone into account.
As for a launch date, there are two periods of time that the Magic 8 ball seems high on. One is the October 24th-25th time frame while the other is the middle of next month.
