T-Mobile’s Galaxy S4 Available Online April 24 for Only $149.99

verizon galaxy s4

The Galaxy S4 announcements just keep on rolling. T-Mobile, the Un-carrier, has announced that the 16GB version of Samsung’s newest flagship will be on their website starting April 24 for the price of $149.99. It should arrive in stores by May 1.

There doesn’t seem to be any pre-orders available for T-Mobile like other carriers, but that trade-off comes with getting the device available a few days earlier. This phone will be shipping with T-Mobile’s new LTE bands packed inside so you can make use of them whenever T-Mobile gets their new network in your area.

Anyone looking to switch to T-Mobile for their new Un-carrier way of doing things and picking up the GS4?

T-Mobile to Offer Samsung Galaxy S 4 at Exceptional Upfront Cost

Only U.S. wireless company to sell Galaxy S 4 with unlimited talk, text and Web with no annual service contract on a fast, nationwide 4G network

America’s Un-carrier continues making bold moves to give consumers affordable, unrestricted1 and hassle-free ways to get the latest 4G LTE smartphones. 

T-Mobile USA, Inc. announced today the Samsung Galaxy S® 4 will be available online at www.T-Mobile.combeginning April 24 for just $149.99 down — plus monthly device payments — for qualifying customers with the new Simple Choice Plan

The availability of Samsung Galaxy S 4 comes as T-Mobile is delivering the most popular smartphones in revolutionary new ways and giving customers far more flexibility with how they buy and use their wireless devices.

“Samsung has a proven track record of delivering the ‘Next Big Thing’ in smartphone innovation,” said John Legere, president and CEO, T-Mobile USA. “By combining our bold, Un-carrier moves — no restrictions, no limits and an unbeatable value — with Samsung’s leading-edge technology, you’re going to get the most from your Samsung Galaxy S 4 at T-Mobile —hands down.”

T-Mobile is the only major U.S. wireless company offering the Samsung Galaxy S 4 with the following:

  • No annual service contract plus unlimited talk, text and Web on a blazing-fast nationwide 4G network.
  • The ability to save money upfront and every month over AT&T, Verizon and Sprint through the Simple Choice Plan.
  • HD Voice for nationwide crystal-clear high-definition calling and reduced background noise.
  • Smartphone Mobile HotSpot feature for sharing the Samsung Galaxy S 4’s connection to the T-Mobile 4G network with up to five Wi-Fi capable devices (tablet, e-reader, laptop, portable gaming device and more). Smartphone Mobile HotSpot is included with every Simple Choice Plan.

Simple Choice Plan

T-Mobile’s Simple Choice Plan starts with a base rate of $50 per month for unlimited talk, text and Web with 500MB of high-speed data at up to 4G speeds. Consumers can add up to 2GB of high-speed 4G data for $10 per month per line or get unlimited 4G data for an additional $20 per month per line. Customers can add a second phone line for $30 per month, and each additional line is just $10 per month. There are no caps and no overages, and no restrictive annual service contracts.

T-Mobile 4G LTE Network

T-Mobile’s 4G LTE rollout complements its existing nationwide 4G network covering 225 million people, which third-party tests show already rivals or beats existing LTE networks in many markets. T-Mobile’s advanced 4G LTE network is currently available in seven metropolitan areas: Baltimore; Houston; Kansas City; Las Vegas; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; and Washington, D.C. The company expects to reach 100 million people with 4G LTE by midyear and 200 million nationwide by the end of 2013. 4G LTE devices like the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will automatically and seamlessly connect to T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G network where 4G LTE has not yet launched.

Device Capabilities

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 joins a growing line-up of T-Mobile 4G LTE devices. The device features the latest Android operating system — Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) — and a speedy 1.9GHz quad-core Qualcomm®Snapdragon processor. In tandem with T-Mobile’s blazing fast and unlimited 4G speeds when paired with the Simple Choice Plan with Unlimited Nationwide 4G Data, the Galaxy S 4 enables customers to  quickly upload or download their favorite photos, videos and TV shows without worrying about expensive overage charges.

With a 13-megapixel camera paired with a vivid 5-inch Full HD SuperAMOLED® (1920 x 1080) display, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 offers a sophisticated multimedia experience for capturing and sharing amazing photos. Advanced camera features include:

  • Dual Camera for recording stills or video with the front and rear cameras simultaneously.
  • Eraser Shot to remove unwanted objects or people from an otherwise perfect picture.
  • Drama Shot for snapping a burst of 100 images in four seconds to create animated GIFs.

The Samsung Galaxy S 4 also offers new enhancements for discovering and watching your favorite programs — whether at home or on the go. New entertainment features include:

  • Samsung WatchON is a whole new way to use your phone with your TV.  It transforms your Samsung Galaxy S 4 into an integrated smart remote to control your home entertainment system including TV, set-top box and DVD player. With the WatchON service, you can get recommended TV, movies and sports according to your personal tastes.
  • Samsung Smart Pause will automatically pause videos playing on your Samsung Galaxy S 4 if you turn your head away and resume once you’ve looked back.

Pricing & Availability

Starting April 24, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 will be available for T-Mobile customers for $149.99 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $20 for well-qualified buyers for 0% APR O.A.C.

    Anyone know if you buy it from Tmobile online tomorrow how long it will take to actually get it? I’d hate to buy it online tomorrow and get it a few days after I could just walk into a store to get it.

  • zim star

    The GS4 was unveiled March 14 in an elaborate New York City presentation at Radio City Music Hall. Analysts noted that Samsung focused heavily on the phone maker’s software features, without much mention of the Android mobile operating system until the next

    You can’t convince someone the grass is greener when the someone doesn’t give a crap about the grass. Until you know all about each persons priorities & needs you don’t know which carrier or plan is “best” for them. I am pretty sure we all have different priorities & needs, so thank you for the options Tmobile.

  • Uriah Romero

    I’m definitely looking forward to getting a Galaxy S4 when it arrives. T-Mobile just released their new LTE network in my area, and it’s pretty fast from what I’ve heard. Even though their 4G is plenty fast, I am excited to try out LTE. I like to stay up to date with my shows by watching them on my current phone during the trip to work at DISH, since it takes some time to get there. I use the DISH Anywhere app to stream my live and recorded shows wherever I go and LTE can only help!

  • mcdonsco

    For all those comparing T-Mobile and Verizon plans/costs…I’m on verizons grandfathered unlimited everything plan…costs $130/month…T-Mobile same plan is $70/month.

    Because I’m already on a plan that requires paying full retail for the phone, phone costs/subsidies/monthly payments on phones dont matter…phone is same costs for me on either network.

    That’s almost TWICE the monthly costs. Only question is, will tmobiles service / coverage be a LOT worse than verizons it a little worse…I can deal worth the latter for a $720/year difference. I will however keep my Verizon line up so I dont lose unlimited data while trying tmobile for two weeks.

  • Damien Luna

    I dont understand what all of you are complaining about because for me going to tmobiles new plan will actually save me 20 bucks a month from what im currently paying in my tmobile contract once my contract is up im going to their new plan. And if i were to get a new phone and pay 20 bucks a month it would be like if i was on my old contract so it wouldn’t phase me and if i just stick with my galaxy s3 i am saving 20 bucks a month. And if my partner and I switch to a family plan we each will be saving 30 bucks a months. so yeah loving more and more tmobile and i get full 4g service in my area not just at home but also at work 40 miles away from home sorry others dont have the same coverage like most of us. My 4g service is faster than my wifi and is faster than my friends data plans who are on att, verizon, or sprint.

    • EC8CH

      What I really don’t like about it is that it keeps people thinking that phones only cost $150 and it keeps them buying phones through the carriers.

      That is screwing up the market and keeping phones from competing with each other which is keeping pricing higher than they should be.

      It is also giving carriers control over the phones, which is a bad bad thing.

      If phones were purchased separate from the service the US wireless market would be a much more consumer friendly place.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

      That’s because not many people are on t mobile 4G, so all your saving is if you go to this new plan you will not be saving anything at all and will just end up paying the same bill as always, so how is this good for you?

  • Geoff Johnson

    People will get loans on anything these days. If you need to take out a 2 year loan to pay for a cell phone, you shouldn’t be getting a cell phone.

  • mayne

    I have the prepaid unlimited plan so I think I’ll snag this at full cost from a store and enjoy my 70$/mo unlimited plan. (the prepaid one)

  • http://www.facebook.com/LoganQBerry Logan Berry

    I like how they market it as unlimited web but charge you more based on how much data you want. Da fuq.

    • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

      It’s unlimited on edge.

  • jhmalboa

    So it’s basically a $630 phone. Wonder if you could just pay the $630 upfront and go elsewhere, assuming you cannot find it for cheaper.

    Also, would have to figure in unlocking it.

  • http://twitter.com/MattLaney_ Matt Laney

    Too bad I live in a sea of Edge.

  • http://twitter.com/armus75 Armus

    Hmmm a bit cheaper in my case than vzw. S4 plus unlimited data x2 plus three lines = $220 on vzw and $150 + $20 phone x2 ($190 total) on tmo

    Course the big issue is unlimited 4g with tmo is not here and their service area sucks

    • Luis Sanchez

      Also do the phone price for vzw to keep unlimited $630×2. That is why I am leaving Verizon.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

        You will still be paying the same 630 on t mobile as well, only difference you will be paying the price over time and not upfront.

      • http://twitter.com/armus75 Armus

        There are ways around it still. Upgrade a different line with the $30/2gb data plan then swap phones (sim cards). Then discontinue the 2gb data and swap back to the original phone. Result is a new s4 with unlimited data and your old phone free to sell. That’s how I got my s3. (On n2 now. 4 phones since nov. 2011 and only spent $200 total)

  • ArrowCool

    I kind of have to agree with some of the other comments. That headline is slightly misleading. $149 down with $480 of monthly payments (24 mo @ $20 with 0% APR).

    • EC8CH

      All it really is, is what ETF fees should have always been.

      • ArrowCool

        Couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

    I’m thinking a S4 for the wife because she’d love the pedometer, and a One for me because I love sexy.

    • Austin Warren

      At least people can get a new phone anytime they pay it off.

      • EC8CH

        If customers are paying full retail for their phones, their service plan rates should drop about $20 a month to offset the subsidy the carrier is no longer paying… I don’t see this in TMO’s pricing… sorry.

        This contract free trend is more about getting the carriers out of the subsidizing business while not dropping service rates, then about improving consumer choices.

        • Austin Warren

          Tmobile is still cheaper than every other carrier WITH the $20 extra a month

          • Butters619

            No it’s not. With the extra $20, an unlimited data plan costs $90/month on T-Mobile. My unlimited data AT&T plan costs $90/month. Sure you can’t get unlimited data anymore, but it’s not cheaper.

          • Austin Warren

            Yeah except you’re stuck on a contract as well.

          • Butters619

            I really don’t see that much of a benefit of not having a contract. So you can jump to straight talk every other month?

          • Austin Warren

            So if you can’t pay the bill one month, a nexus doesn’t cone to your carrier, new phone comes out and can’t upgrade.

          • Butters619

            Yes but with new phones you’d still have to pay off your current phone and buy the new phone. I can buy a new phone while in a contract too.

          • Fattie McDoogles

            And your only option is to pay full retail upfront. With T Mobile you can pay full retail upfront or you can get on the payment plan. You can pay the phone off whenever you want and as soon as you do your bill returns to normal unlike with Verizon or any other carrier with a contract.

          • Butters619

            Yes that’s true. But you would still have to pay off two phones if you elected to get a second phone before paying off the first. Then you are paying $40/month for phones. You aren’t saving any money.

          • Fattie McDoogles

            Straight Talk is major carriers… It used to be AT&T and T Mobile, now its just T Mobile

          • Butters619

            Last I checked (when straight talk was AT&T) you didn’t get 4G service.

          • Fattie McDoogles

            From what I have been hearing they aren’t giving out AT&T sim cards anymore. You can still use the service if you have it but you can’t get it new.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

            Unless he buys his phone full retail, which is what you will be doing with T mobile.

          • EC8CH

            I have grandfathered unlimited data with limited voice and text (the plan most people actually need) at VZW for around $70 per month… so yeah these Tmo plans are a joke.

          • Austin Warren

            You’re one of the few. You don’t speak for a lot.

          • Butters619

            I’m getting downvoted into oblivion though lol.

            It takes 2 seconds to go to T-Mobile and look at their prices and realize it’s not cheaper than other carriers if you have an existing unlimited plan. And it also takes 2 seconds to realize that once you add in the extra $20, theses plans are more expensive than what T-Mobile used to be.

          • New_Guy

            It’s because you’re taking about a grandfathered plan. Grandfathered because it doesn’t exist anymore and is only available for select customers, not new ones. For new customers, T-mobile wins as far as price and going without a contract is concerned. Coverage might be a different story, but t mobiles is unlimited to everyone. Not so with AT&T.

          • http://www.facebook.com/nfujiwara Neil Fujiwara

            I have unlimited with Verizon, but those plans don’t exist any more. It is only fair to compare plans that currently exist. Plus, T-Mobile offers limited high speed, but unlimited throttle for what it is worth.

          • Fattie McDoogles

            That’s not true. I have the $70 unlimited T Mobile plan and I have used 8 GBs and I’m 2 weeks into my month and I am not being throttled. I just downloaded a 750MB ROM this morning… it took 6 mins.

          • Daniel Medlin

            Is the real Neil Pillage Fujiwara?

          • http://twitter.com/Craigboy Craig Boyte

            This is exactly right. I don’t know why some people are having such a hard time figuring this out. I’m going to use a Note 2 since we don’t know for sure Verizon pricing on the S4
            T-Mobile:
            Cost of phone
            $679
            If purchased on Amazon $555
            $149 if subsidizing
            Plans
            Unlimited T/T 500MB – $50
            Unlimited T/T 2 GB Data – $60
            Unlimited T/T Unlimited – $70
            Add $20 to any plan for 24 months if subsidized

            Verizon:
            Cost of phone
            $699
            Subsidized phone $299
            Plans
            Unlimited T/T 1GB $90
            Unlimited T/T 2GB – $100
            Unlimited T/T 4GB – $110
            Unlimited T/T 10GB – $140 (no unlimited)

            I am on a grandfathered unlimited and pay $85/month (that is with a discount that I’m sure they are about to cut)

            It seems very clear cut that T-Mobile is cheaper

          • http://twitter.com/yitty4eva Terrence Adams

            unlimited data actually costs 70 bucks a month on Tmobile kind sir….

          • Butters619

            Plus you have to pay $20/month for the phone!

          • New_Guy

            But that 20 is going towards the full price of the phone. A discounted, $580 price, mind you.

          • Daistaar

            Bad math: 149+(20×24)=629

          • http://twitter.com/HughHansen Hugh Hansen

            My plan (8 GB w/hotspot) is $90 on T-Mobile. It would be $130 on Verizon. That’s a big difference.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

            Yes, but their coverage isn’t any good.

          • EC8CH

            but are they $20 cheaper than their old on contract pricing used to be?

          • I_Am_Roy_Halladay

            Actually yes, it’s exactly $20 cheaper. Their old plans that included a phone subsidy were $79.99 for UNL TLK/TXT/2GBWEB, their new plans are $60 for UNL TLK/TXT/2GBWEB without the subsidy, but you have the benefit of no contract, new phone anytime, and your monthly rate drops as soon as the phones paid off. Source: I’m a T-Mobile employee

          • EC8CH

            Looks like the unlimited plan is actually $70

            What was the old unlimited pricing?

          • Butters619

            You also have to add in the $20 for the phone :p

          • I_Am_Roy_Halladay

            The old unlimited pricing was $89.99 with a subsidy

          • Fattie McDoogles

            You’re missing the beauty of it. Say you can’t afford to pay the full $580 upfront for a new phone. You can pay the phone off $80 a month or $100 a month if you want and have your bill return to normal as soon as you’re done. You don’t have to only pay $20 a month for 2 years.

          • Geoff Johnson

            They also have less than half the coverage of all the other carriers, and far more GPRS/EDGE than anyone else

        • JoshGroff

          Their rates are at least $20 cheaper. Also, you only pay 20/month to cover the rest of the retail price of the phone, if you don’t want to pay it all up front.

          • joseph pastor

            Thing is, even if its still cheaper….you’re getting cheaper service as well.

          • JoshGroff

            There’s always a trade off. You will almost always pay more for better service.

          • Butters619

            The rates aren’t $20 cheaper. T-Mobile wasn’t $90/month before this all went down. They were upper $70s. So basically they took $10 off of the plan, but then charge you $20 month to pay for the phone.

            In the end they pocket an extra $10/month

          • EC8CH

            Bingo!

          • JoshGroff

            That was in response to his previous post, of course it somehow popped down here for some unknown reason.

          • I_Am_Roy_Halladay

            It was $90 a month though, I’m looking at the old classic plan brochure right now. $89.99 for a single line with UNL TLK/TXT/ and UNL4G

          • kevin michael james

            Hey…lol this is mike james from school. Arvada west….if thats really u. Hit me up. 720 345 1537

        • MentatYP

          Agreed. If they really want to be an “un-carrier” as they claim they would have dropped all plans by $20. T-Mo’s saving grace is their rates are cheaper than everybody else’s. When Verizon tries this B.S. it’ll be time to jump ship from Verizon for sure, because their monthly cost during the installment payment period will be ridiculous.

          • JoshGroff

            They did drop their rates, I don’t remember exactly what their old rates were, but I’m pretty sure the unlimited everything plan dropped $20.

          • MentatYP

            Is there somewhere on their site where you can see/calculate this rate? All I’m seeing is that family unlimited for 2 lines is still $120 just like it has been for a long time. Also, does the $20 less apply per line for family lines, or is it just for individual plans?

          • JoshGroff

            Is your unlimited plan one of the classic ones? I was calculating from individual plan, I never looked into their family plans.

          • Damien Luna

            Their original plans from before were 60 unlimited talk and text and 30 unlimited data making it 90 so yes their plans dropped 20 bucks

        • http://techonblogger.ward.pro/ Stynkfysh

          But if the phones can be sold independent of contracts, then they will (hopefully) have to start competing on price, which they haven’t been so far. Not competing on price (other than in the $200 range) has kept the phone prices high. We are in the early stages of this, hopefully. We need one more major carrier to join in, at least. The downside is that if the phone makers are not making the insane profits they have been per device, it will probably slow the advancement of tech.

        • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

          That’s 100% true. And T-Mobile pricing is reflecting that clearly. They have a base service price and then a phone subsidy on top of that which you’ll not pay if you pay full retail.

          • http://profiles.google.com/adclow Aaron Clow

            This is the only fair way to do it. That way you know you’re not getting shafted by the phone company. You know EXACTLY how much your phone is and EXACLTY how much your plan is. Pay off the phone, that part of the payment is done. It’s not some background voodoo magic. I jumped onboard with T-Mobile last month after 12 years with VWireless. Saving $100 a month on my family plan. And I gave up grandfathered unlimited data to get here. I just think it’s more ethical to show consumers what they’re actually paying AND not tie them to a contract.

      • RaptorOO7

        But can you just walk in and pay off the balance on the phone part itself? Regardless if you are on Verizon or Sprint its useless you can’t take the phone any other carrier so get a GSM phone.

    • JoshGroff

      Still better than paying the retail cost up front.

      • EC8CH

        my phone is not a car or a house… I don’t require a payment plan that hides the true total cost of the phone and service.

        • EvanTheGamer

          Never mind, I misspoke.

          • EC8CH

            No, I expect to pay full retail somewhere (anywhere) except at the carrier for a phone.

            Then I expect my monthly service fee to drop $20 a month because their not paying to subsidize my phone anymore.

          • http://twitter.com/starnovsky Stan Tarnovsky

            That’s exactly what T-Mobile is doing.

        • JoshGroff

          It’s an option, and anyone with half a brain knows the true cost…

        • Austin Warren

          15 year mortgage on a phone. Sounds like a good idea.

        • Jonathan Ly

          And yet later down on this chain you expect NOT to pay full price at the carrier? Conflicting concepts no? What is the carrier contract if not a way to recoup the cost lost from a subsidized contract?

          Lets take the Note 2 for example

          Verizon – $299.99 from $699.99

          T mobile – $199.99 from $679.99

          Unlimited Text and Talk + 2GB of Data @ VZW – $89.99

          Unlimited Text and Talk + 2GB of Data @ TMO – $80.00, with $20 subsidy

          24 months @ verizon $2159.76 + applicable sales tax
          24 months @ t mobile $1920.00 + applicable sales tax

          So cost of phone + price difference, Verizon charges you $339.76 + tax more, but somehow T-mobile’s model is the one that’s jank…

          And you have to look at this in a purely analytical model, because your argument is centered on the hiding of price. Arguing coverage and speed changes variables, and grandfathered plans don’t count unless you compare like-plans.

          Analysis, rather than knee-jerk reaction, shows that the model isn’t great, but that the market itself is garbage and needs regulation.

          TL-DR, Your anchor for measuring things is bad, and you should probably feel bad.

            You messed up on your own math., 1920 plus 339.76=2259.76 not 2159.76.. So the difference in price is 239.76 … Then you take in account for reliability of the net work 239.76 does really seem so bad in price difference over 24 months

            Beautiful analysis of Tmo’s new plans to Verizon which actually does nothing to determine if the move to non contract plans is better for the carriers or the customers.

          • RaptorOO7

            I have no issue with the carrier making up their subsidy costs, but my plan costs should drop after 2 years (1 year if they offer it like AT&T) since I am no longer subsidizing a device.

            Carriers know that customers want new toys every 2 years so they just keep sticking it to you. They should list two prices, on contract and off contract and allow you to decide.

        • RaptorOO7

          Plus you are still paying the hidden subsidized pricing when you are on contract, off contract or bring your own phone. No thanks Verizon.

      I walked into T-mobile this weekend just to see what they are all about now. Just an over glorified Metro MCS now. $149 down plus $20/month for 24 months. You end up paying $629 for that S4. I don’t see a reason to be moving to a different carrier so being locked into a 2 year contract does not matter to me. T-Mobile just went from bad to worse than Metro…

    Can you buy the phone without the service and just pay the $20 a month service?

    • JoshGroff

      I don’t know, but that would be nice with their $30 prepaid plan O-o

  • akazerotime

    By the time root and custom roms are out for this phone, it will be time to switch. See ya VZW

    Read the last paragraph: “$149.99 down with 24 equal monthly payments of $20″

  • JimmyHACK

    $149 DOWN… + $480 in payments… this is for non-contract.. no contract price mentioned.

    • EC8CH

      “plus monthly device payments”

      • Butters619

        Shhhh! Consumers don’t do math!

        • EC8CH

          apparently… and I’m a little disappointed in DL for promoting such thinking with that sensational headline. sorry guys.

          • Butters619

            It’s all good. I was looking at it the other day and T-Mobile would actually cost me the same $90/month as my current unlimited data AT&T plan

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

            It’s not only droid life, the rest of the tech sites have been doing it as well.

          • Butters619

            The worst part is commenters are defending T-Mobile to the death right now, but the math doesn’t add up.

          • http://www.facebook.com/people/Dominick-White/642535026 Dominick White

            Yes, and those same people where calling people on att and verizon foolish, who decided to just buy their phones full retail to keep their much cheaper unlimited data plans. When they are just doing the same on t mobile, but instead of paying upfront they are paying over time.

      • http://profiles.google.com/cory.simpson Cory Simpson

        Confused here. They are offering you a interest free loan for a phone and you think people are suckers? I guess the people paying subsidized plan prices for a phone they’ve had for 3 years are the ones who know better?

        • EC8CH

          Yep, this move by Tmo is making them money, not saving you money.

        • MentatYP

          Before “un-carrier”:
          2x S3: $500 (guessing here, T-Mo seemed to always be pricier than others)
          Monthly for family plan unlimited: $120
          Total over 2 years: $3380

          After “un-carrier”:
          2x S3: $300
          Monthly for family plan unlimited: $160 until paid off in 2 years, then $120
          Total over 2 years: $4140

          Where’s the beef?

          • EC8CH

            in Tmo’s pocket.

  • JetBlue

    Been considering switching to T-Mobile recently and stuff like this makes me really consider it even more

  • TRIQ6

    Good god, that is low enough where I am tempted to sell my Nexus 4…

      I guess you didn’t read the paragraph…Pricing & Availability
