Radio Shack now taking pre-orders for the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4
Verizon customers might be feeling a little impatient these days with the Samsung Galaxy S4 not launching on the nation's largest carrier until May 30th. By that time, each of the three other major U.S. carriers will have already launched the phone. Verizon is now taking pre-orders for the model, priced at $199.99 with a two-year contract for the 16GB version.

Also accepting pre-orders on the Verizon variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 is Radio Shack. The coast to coast electronics retailer is also reserving units of the phone, but for a higher price of $249.99 with a signed two-year contract. Customers spending $30 or more in a single transaction through June 1st, will receive a $10 credit that can be used on future purchases such as accessories you want to buy for your new phone.

Why go to Radio Shack if the chain is charging $50 more than Verizon? It could be because Radio Shack's trade in program will give you as much as $300 for a eligible phone. That would give you enough moola to buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 and have money left over for some accessories. Those buying the phone at Radio Shack also get help from the retailer's Mobile Product Support (MPS) which can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week via phone, email, live chat, live forums and from RadioShack.com. MPS gives you free expert advice over the lifetime of the device.

I'd still rather get it from the Verizon store and support them since they always take care of me and specialize in just Verizon. Who buys phones at Radio Shack anyway?

Maybe you should just wait until Wal-Mart is selling them for $29.
