T-Mobile announces Samsung Galaxy S5 for $0 down in special “introductory” pre-order offer

T-Mobile announces Samsung Galaxy S5 for $0 down in special “introductory” pre-order offer
Beginning March 24th, T-Mobile will begin taking pre-orders online and in the store for the new Samsung Galaxy S5. T-Mobile is offering an “introductory price” to those that pre-order, and guaranteeing that they will be the first to get the new flagship without waiting in line when the device is available in stores on April 11th.

That “introductory price” is set for well qualified buyers who pre-order at no money down, and the monthly payments will be $27.50-per-month. That comes to a full retail price of $660 which is in line with prices listed by other carriers.

Folks that pre-order before the end of March will get $120 credit toward the purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (while supplies last), with a mobile data plan and 200MB per month free data for the life of the device. T-Mobile did not disclose what the price of the Samsung Galaxy S5 might be after the introductory offer, though it will probably be a change in the amount of money to put down to buy the device in the future.

According to CEO John Legere, T-Mobile has already received over half-a-million pre-registrations for the new Samsung. He also threw in some price comparisons stating that a family of four could conceivably save over $1,200 over two years if they switch from AT&T or Verizon.

No matter how you look at it, Samsung has not bumped the price of its flagship, making this new bundle of technology a great deal. T-Mobile’s web-site also says the carrier is giving away a phone each day over the next five weeks.

I got my Note 3 for $0 down after switching to T-mobile two weeks ago so I don't see what the big deal is.

yes but if you have jump is not bad at all, because you don't pay the full phone and then you go to the next flagship.

That's what I was saying in another subject.. I didn't pay much more for my note so I think the pricing should lower a bit.. I'm sure it won't matter because they'll ship a sh!t ton of them but still

I doubt samsung, the world's largest android oem, is anything close to desperate.

Samsung pumping out multiple models of Android phones would equate to major R&D and marketing expenses which would NOT equal a desperate company

Crypt keeper at it again with comparing his company to others... How about you focus on your coverage guy.. Then compare yourself to them

No, they don't force you to do that but you get JUMP! along with the full insurance for the $10
