Samsung Galaxy S4 for Verizon can now be pre-ordered at Best Buy
Verizon customers, we bring you both good news and not-so-good news. The good news is that in case you have your mind set on a Samsung Galaxy S4, you can pre-order one starting today. That ensures you'll be among the first Verizon subscribers to have the highly anticipated smartphone in their hands. 

The not-so-good news, however, is that the process does not take place online. Big box retailer Best Buy is the one taking Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders, but you'll need to visit an outlet in order to have a unit reserved just for you. 

Sadly, there is still no word as to when Verizon will launch the Samsung Galaxy S4. All we know is that it will happen in May, but the phone's release might have been set for as late as May 30. Pricing for the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 has not been revealed either, but a $200 on-contract price for the 16GB model seems like a reasonable figure. 

So yeah, if you want a Samsung Galaxy S4 from Verizon, you can go and pre-order one at Best Buy. Sure, you'll have to visit a Best Buy store, but a phone as the Samsung Galaxy S4 is totally worth the hike. For more information about this hot smartphone, check out our Samsung Galaxy S4 review.

I'd think it would be larger news if Verizon were launching a flagship phone under the $299 price tag they've established.

Dont do it! Pre-ordering an S3 last year from Best Buy was the worst experience. They had no idea when they would even get stock a week before the phone was supposed to be out. I ended up walking into a Verizon store the day it came out and picked one up without any problems. A week afterward, i went to best buy and got a refund on the $50 gift card they make you buy; and they still didn't have any S3's in stock. Do yourself a favor, dont pre-order from Best Buy.

Do yourself an even bigger favor by switching carriers ;-)

Sprint also has the S4 coming out on the 27th, but the pre orders are already sold out (according to the Sprint website).
