    Man that just sucks for Sprint customers. Paying $50 more than AT&T and Verizon on a much smaller LTE network... ouch...

    Yes... Not very excited about it. I might have to wait to see if the price drops any

    Could it be the 32GB variant?

    From the Sprint news room:

    "OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), April 17, 2013 - Sprint (NYSE:S) will offer Samsung Galaxy S 4 (16GB version) beginning on Saturday, April 27, for $249.99 (excluding taxes) with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement."

    Maybe it is because we have unlimited data?

    Yeah at first At&t came out with the same price point but then clarified it was for the 32 gb version. I am guessing and hoping it's the same for Sprint. I have been liking my Sprint service a lot more in the last few days since they have been lighting up lte in my city. 30 MBit down and 11 up are nothing to sneeze at.

    If you look at the fact sheet on the Sprint Newsroom it shows the 16 GB variant. Really disappointed with Sprint here, not only are they the last of the major carriers to announce, they set a price point $50 over everyone else. I usually stick up for Sprint because by and large I have had a good experience, but they are making themselves pretty hard to defend here.

    Wow, can't believe they are going to make us pay $50 more. Hopefully they will change just like ATT, but if they don't then I guess I will have to deal with it if I plan to preorder. Atleast I don't have to pay full price.

    I just talked to a Sprint person who asked a senior supervisor, and even they can't say for sure what the deal with the pricing is. Guess we will find out soon enough.

    the price point for this phone is just to high across the board. and the fact no one is offering the 32gb model is really making me rethink getting the s4 at all.

    I will buy at the 249 price if that is what it is, but best believe if the price drops within 14 to 30 days I will ask to be credited the difference.

    249 for existing customers but only 149 for new customers.. I can see Sprint wanting to bring new people but why punish the ones staying?

    I wonder how many people this will shift towards the HTC One, just because of the $50 difference.

    I know, I feel the same way!

    Sprint is in bad shape from what I have been reading lately. Softbank and Dish Network are trying to buy Sprint because it seems they are not making share holders happy. Their network is way behind Verizon and AT&T so perhaps new ownership might help them get back on track with competing against the bigger networks. Here in NYC, I have fairly good service but their Data service is lacking tremendously! I am getting 4G LTE but its very spotty and random and not really that much faster than 3G. I can only imagine how many customers they have here in NYC. They should be working to improve their network in the bigger cities where most of their profit is coming from. Only time will tell I guess!

    You mean like how the $250 was supposed to be for the 16GB AT&T version, which was announced in the same fashion as this one? If I'm not mistaken AT&T isn't selling a $250 16GB S4 are they?

    You're right, they won't be selling 16GB for $250. And neither will Sprint.

    If they did by any chance though, well then shame on Sprint. But for now I'm just going to sum it up to Sprint pulling an AT&T and giving vague information about the launch, only to clear it up in the days before their pre-orders go live.
