Verizon now taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5 with BOGO
Without a doubt, one of the most anticipated Smartphones this year is the Samsung Galaxy S5.

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.

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.

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
