Verizon now taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5 with BOGO
When the device was announced back in February (see our hands-on preview) we were impressed by its sleek design, 5.1" Super AMOLED display, improved 16MP Camera, and don't forget about the heart-rate monitor!
Shortly after, all the US carriers had a sign-up page to be notified about buying the smartphone, which was then followed by being able to pre-order the Galaxy S5 on AT&T, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and Sprint.
Now a couple weeks later, Verizon today started accepting pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5, with the same price of $199.99 with a 2-year contract, or $25.55/month with Verizon Edge. But Verizon is shaking things up a bit by offering the Galaxy S5 as a BOGO, where you can get another Galaxy S5 for free, or choose from the Samsung ATIV SE, or the HTC One (M8), as long as you sign a 2-year contract for each phone/device line.
The availability date for all US carriers is April 11th. Which one are you most interested in buying the Samsung Galaxy S5 from?

It's not really the contract; it's the price of the phone. It's more foolish to pay $600 for a phone that depreciates so much after one year.

Nope, I've been here since 2006. But have had some health issues lately.

Verizon is stepping up their game. As much as I loathe contracts and all that jazz, carriers are finally buckling a bit and giving more to their customers. Like this, pretty decent deal. Granted we still have a ways to go with the prices of the service, but that's another can of worms.

Contract > 600-700$. Also, z2 > s5. C'mon Sony stop being so... Idk, lazy

There's no point in buying the full retail price phone from Vzw and not going on a contract. Vzw, unlike other carriers, doesn't give you a discount month to month for having your own phone. ATT for example gives you 15 bucks a month off. Granted I'm not sure how worth it is still because 15 bucks a month takes linger than a contract period to pay off a 700 dollar phone.

That's not true, more everything gives you $10-$25 off of line access depending on the amount of data you go with when doing edge
