    T-Mobile is the way to go. no contract and rated the #2 best network in the US. hands down the best price and features of any US carrier.

    How will the pre-orders be initiated? Will it be online only or will you be able to walk into a brick and mortar store and pre-order?
    I'd suggest doing it online, unless u wanna wake up at 5AM and wait in a long *** line

    There won't be long lines, just like there weren't long lines for the S3.

    Don't forget the Note 2 was $299 when it first came out and they sold millions. If $249 is too high just wait a few months.
    The Note 2's sales were pretty small compared to any of the other blockbusters, so that is not a good handset from which to draw conclusions.

    I pre ordered the S3 and Note 2 online with att. In fact, I have not stepped foot into a store in quite a while. While there were no lines for the S3 the pre orders received them on June 21 and they were not in the stores for a week or so after...not sure but there was a big mess trying to get them in the stores...

    If you really want one on launch day, I would pre order on line.

    Hm, $249 seams like a risky move by Samsung. Not even Apple would go over $199 for their basic phone. Oh well, I guess they know what they are doing. Or not.

    Samsung gets full price for the phone whatever that is. Att is pricing the subsidized price.

    Yes, but it would still make full price for the phone extra $50, no?

    If GS3 full was $550 and 2yr contract was $200 and GS4 2yr $250 then full price without would be $600. If that is true, I am not complaining. I paid $650 for my ip5.

    However, T mobile will sell GS4 for $99 + 24 months x $20/mo = $579. Shouldn't they sell them at the same price? I would be very excited if 16gb versions are priced at $579 for Verizon GS4 w/o contract. I want to keep my grandfathered-in unlimited data plan so I have to buy at full price.

    Either drive a Honda or a BMW. There are reasons for price differences.

    Probably 549 to 599 no commitment on ATT. Not sure the LTE systems are interchangeable, in fact they are not, just do not know if the S4 has all the radios. Why you pushing t mobile so hard? T mobile generally does not have the coverage of ATT hence ATT has 4X the number of subscribers. Not everyone is disgruntled at ATT.
    I'm not pushing anything. In case you haven't noticed, I said you could still keep the AT&T plan. I'm simply looking out for the customer's best interest. No sense paying the AT&T price if the tmo phone is the same, unlocked and cheaper. I'm pretty sure the phone will come with multiple LTE bands.

    The tmobile version will not be any cheaper. It will be around $579.
    Remember: the additional $20 payment for 24 months might include tax and interest.

    For example: your monthly charges = 50 + tax and other fees. Now 50 + 20 + tax and other fees. You'll end up paying more and get 3x slower data speed.

    T-Mobile is excellent where they have coverage, unfortunately that isn't in too many places. I hope they start bringing in customers, but until they grow in subscribers their coverage will suck compared to AT&T.

    According to antenna search.com, AT&T updates its towers much more often than T-Mobile in my area.

    T-Mobile may be good for you, but AT&T has over 100 million customers versus T-Mobile's 34 million. That says a lot.

    I believe the Note 2 is 199 on contract and 549 for no commitment.
    The no commit price on the note 2 from att is 649.00 after taxes over 700.00 the 549 you talk about is the gs3

    You could be right...they have a picture of a Note1 but the write up and saysa Note 2 so not 100% now. I paid 649.99 + tax when I preordered mine in November. Worth every penny!

    IF it is a 16 Gb phone that refers to the non-replaceable internal storage, right? No microSD card comes with it? Or is it assumed there is 16 Gb of internal memory AND 16 Gb of microSD ??

    I'm waiting for the Verizon version to replace my Droid Charge .... maybe.

    I think we'll see lines but nothing like what the iPhone had. Even iPhone lines won't be as long but they'll probably still sell more simply because of preorders. As long as they make a ton for preorders then that's less people that stand in lines. Most people that are willing to wake (stay?) up for preorders are the same folks that would wait in a line for 8 hours. Again, I definitely expect long lines, but not something unseen just based on the fact that carriers and the manufacturers want to prepare better and while having people lined up for your device is good publicity, it's better for both to meet early demand with home deliveries. When the iPhone first hit Verizon there were all types of negative reports about how there were no lines at Verizon stores and such. A month later, Verizon announced it as their best selling device ever for a new one on their network. Why? Because it was available online for preorder.

    Listed storage will refer to internal storage. And I don't even know the last time a phone came with an SD card. Just order one from amazon ahead of time. And the available will always be less than 16GB and system files.

    My 2-year-old Samsung Verizon Droid Charge came with a 32 Gb Class 4 SD card but then the internal memory is minimal. I think the internal is 1 Gb.

    Yeah 2 years is a long time ago in smartphones. They pretty much don't do that anymore, especially for these high-end phones with at least 16GB onboard. They may still do it for lower end devices, but I don't know because I don't buy those type of devices LOL.

    See my post previous to the one you quoted. And no, the $20 a month installment does not have interest tagged on (that was in the announcement). The total price on T-Mobile is $579. AT&T hasn't announced full retail price yet. When they do, if it's at or below $579, then by all means, buy from them. I just don't think it's going to be.
