    I went to an AT&T store today to ask about the Galaxy S5 pre-order and the availability of the Gold S5. I was told that they wouldn't sell the S5 at the no-commitment price for six months. Has anyone else heard this?

    Was it a corp store? Can't you order on-line starting Monday?

    I haven't heard about it being 6 months but I do know some retailers / carrier stores will limit the sale of full price phones so they can have people with contracts / payment plans get the phones first.

    Not true, you can buy at no commitment online, I saw the option when I preordered mine

    It was a company-owned retail store.

    I need to order this in the store, as online shopping only gives the option to have the device sent to the billing address. I need it shipped to a store.

    Also not true
    I was able to ship my phone to a different address other than my billing address
    The only address u can't ship it to is a P.O. Box
    My billing address is in Maryland, and Im shipping my phone to Florida, no problems

    I just went through an online order and stopped before entering the payment information. I did see the option to enter a different shipping address. I didn't have that option for the Galaxy S III and didn't realize that AT&T had changed this.

    However, I did not have the option for no-commitment pricing. I only had the two Next options and the 2-year upgrade option. I've heard that the no-commitment option doesn't show up for people who are upgrade eligible, but I don't know if that is an absolute truth.

    When I go to new service it allows it. Try going to the pre-order page.. Don't go through your account and the upgrade option till you add it to cart.

    Thanks for the input smooth4lyfe and Almeuit.

    I'll check another AT&T store to see if they say that they won't sell the GS5 at full price for six months. Since I want the Gold, pre-ordering isn't an option for me right now.
