According to posts on Reddit (via TmoNews) Some T-Mobile customers who pre-ordered a Samsung Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10 or a Galaxy S10+ are receiving notifications that their new phones have shipped. Those lucky enough to have received such a notification should receive a box containing a shiny new Galaxy S phone as soon as tomorrow, March 6th. That is two full days ahead of the official release date of March 8th.
Pre-orders will continue to be taken through March 7th, and this Friday the phones should be available at T-Mobile stores. We would suggest that those waiting to buy one of the three new Samsung phones from their local T-Mobile store call in advance on Friday to make sure that they have the desired model in stock.
T-Mobile is offering the 128GB 5.8-inch Samsung Galaxy S10e for $749.99 ($0 down and 36 monthly payments of $20.84) and the 256GB model for $849.99 ($99 down and 36 monthly payments of $20.84. The 128GB 6.1-inch Samsung Galaxy S10 is priced at $899.99 ($99 down and 36 monthly payments of $22.23) and the 512GB version will cost you $1,149.99 ($349.99 down and 36 monthly payments of $22.23). The 128GB Samsung Galaxy S10+ is available for $999.99 ($199.99 down and 36 monthly payments of $22.23).
For a limited time, T-Mobile is offering a $390 monthly bill credit on one of the three new Galaxy S models with a qualified trade, or by adding a new line. Doing this will reduce the 36 monthly payments by $10.83 a month.
For those who are receiving their shiny new phone tomorrow, mazal tov!
