US Cellular Hosting Galaxy S4 Pre-orders on April 16

us cellular gs4

On the heals of AT&T’s announcement that they would open up pre-orders for Samsung’s new Galaxy S4 on April 16, US Cellular has decided to join the party. The somewhat smaller U.S. carrier will also host pre-orders on April 16, though they haven’t given us any pricing details. AT&T set their pre-order price at $249 on 2-year contract.

We still have no word out of Sprint or Verizon. T-Mobile tossed out an early May date previously in the week when they talked up their new LTE network and pricing plans.

And that’s that.

  • Cricket Wireless is my carrier. I wonder if the Pre-Paid companies are going to see this phone on launch or a little bit after. Somebody told me they heard on the radio that Samsung is not holding back for carrier releases on the S4. Anybody care to comment?

    • Well, with a quick google search I seen that this is coming to Cricket Wireless!

        You mean you saw 😉

  • Not sure why they market it using TV remote control… any smartphone can do TV remote control. Why is that such a big deal?

    Does anyone else think, “Yeah, it’s no problem that you’re late to the party Verizon. Release the phone to the rest of the carriers and see if they’re having any issues, that way I’ll know whether or not to buy it. Plus, by the time it does get released, there’s usually a ROM already for the device, and the bootloader’s been unlocked, so all the work has been done!” ?

      I do.

      “Verizon”… “bootloader’s been unlocked”

      Hmmm… something doesn’t quite add up here 😛

    No need for alarm. Verizon is still figuring out the branding location on the phone lol. VeeZeeDub!

      And making sure the phone will still work with 25 added bloatware apps

    Can’t wait to see what kind of pictures it can take. Probably a lot better than 4mp.

    Early May for Tmobile? Right before Google IO and maybe X phone?

    Great news unless you are on Verizon. Yes Verizon has a great network but honestly I get tired of having to be the last to get any new devices on their network. It has me considering porting just my primary number to another carrier and enjoying the GMS/LTE freedom.

    Hey Verizon…cricket, cricket, cricket!

      We were last to get the S3 & Note 2, so this is just par for the course.
