Samsung apologizes for putting Verizon SIM cards in Sprint's Galaxy S9 packages

The Sprint Galaxy S9 packages seemingly contained... Verizon SIM cards, as you can see above. Samsung has apologized for the mismatch, and is reportedly now shipping the correct SIMs to their Sprint customer orders as we speak.
Adding insult to injury, the unlocked Galaxy S9 costs just $719.99 over at the Samsung USA store, while Sprint and Verizon charge quite a bit more for their versions.

Oh man, someone is fired. Good on Samsung for apologizing and correcting the error in good time. They have a track record of owning up to their errors, which is good to see as a consumer.

As a non-american, I don't understand why anyone would buy a not unlocked phone.

Well I'm american and have Verizon yes there more expensive their phone but completely 100% unlocked so no worries there . When I travel to Europe I just buy a sim over there and pop it on my Verizon note 8 which supports all of Europe's lte bands and works great no need for unlock code . Then once I get back to the US pop in my Verizon sim card.
