T-Mobile U.K. announces pricing plans for the Samsung Galaxy S III, accepting pre-orders
T-Mobile U.K. has announced its pricing plans for the Samsung Galaxy S III, many of which include the phone for free. Power users would most likely be interested in the 2-year "Full Monty" plan which includes unlimited texts, data and T-mobile to T-Mobile calls along with 2000 minutes of calls to other networks. That comes out to a price of  £49.99 up-front and a monthly charge of £36 ($79 USD and $57 USD respectively). Not bad considering that the Samsung Galaxy S III is free with the plan.

For those looking to keep their wallet or purse a little heavier, there are monthly plans as low as £10.50 per month that include the device, although they require a much larger upfront payment of £300 ($476 USD). You can also sign up for a plan that comes without an upfront payment. For £41 per month, which includes unlimited texts, data and calls, you can get a free Samsung Galaxy S III. All of the plans require you to sign a 2-year pact. If you live in the U.K., all of the major carriers there will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S III which means that if you're not enamored with T-Mobile's plans, perhaps another mobile operator has one that is right up your alley.

T-Mobile U.K.'s website says that pre-orders placed now will arrive after the May 30th launch date, which tells you something about the demand for this phone.

Nope, not everybody. It's just the US carriers that are greedy pigs. $299 phone, 2 year contract, and $100 monthly plans.

I agree. US carriers charge an arm and a leg for their services, which they market as "premium quality devices/services."

It's all in the marketing... And if people had any sense, they'd demand a change.

Yeah, US carriers are sooooo profit hungry.

I have a friend in the Philippines who has this inlimited internet plan for just around $18 (upto 2mbps) and I was told he can upgrade to the $50 plan and speed goes upto 35mpbs.

Depending on his needs, I'd say 35mbps is damn good. That's what T-Mobile gets on phones that aren't running the HSPA+ bands.

Yep, 35mpbs is more than enough. I'd die if I have that kind of connection.
