After the international Samsung Galaxy S4 model got the FCC's approval, now it's time for two US-bound variants of the device to receive the commission's blessing.

Curious that the SCH-R970 is thought of as a Metro phone since Metro is the only carrier that hasn't officially been listed nor have they ever mentioned adding the S4 to their line-up. I'm sure it will happen just one of those oddities.

All i want from sprint is to at least give me a date of when you're going to start taking oders but no, when i do a quick check every(other) day it's either AT&T or Verizion...US Cellular?? Come on sprint, just give me a date already!!
