Verizon Takes to Twitter to Confirm its Version of the Galaxy S4 Arrives in May

Verizon Galaxy S4

It’s about time, Verizon. While Samsung and almost every other American carrier has gone ahead and announced pricing and availability for the upcoming Galay S4, Verizon has been taking their sweet time. Today, they took to their official Twitter to give folks the heads up that it is coming to their network, but still can’t give us a definitive date. For now, all we get is “May.” 

As for what specific date in May, the only hint we have is from a leaked Staples document that gives the date of May 30. Who knows how reliable that is.

In any case, it’s nice to see Big Red is finally acknowledging that they will in fact be selling 2013’s hottest device.

    Awesome. This gives me a little more time to live in my delusion that the One will come to Verizon before being forced to submit to reality and go with Samsung.

  • Salvationalizm

    Verizon is like the cable company…where sometime between 10:00 and 12:00 actually means 16:45; ‘Coming in May’ means, “we’ll sell this to you sometime before September…maybe.”

    …not to forget that they actually do provide cable also…

  • Abgar Musayelyan

    So many unanswered questions about the device still .
    Namely, Will it have vz navigator and let’s golf 2?

    • Emoney

      lol I opened up VZ navigator by accident today and damn near soiled myself

  • Benjamin Mackie

    And this announcement is officially why Im waiting for the note 3. If they had the s4 out within the next week or so, Id get it, but the longer they delay, more willing I am to just get the beast that will be the note 3

  • It will be released as soon as they are finished screwing it up

  • Chris

    Glad they didn’t put their name on the home button again. That s**t was weak

  • wm snyder

    now they done this what’s their big advent ?

  • Tulebawa

    Verizon – the company with best network and the worst product management team on the planet. What else is new…

    • kg215

      But their management team is the “best” at pissing off customers and taking every single cent they can 24/7.

  • erichoffman

    Notice how they never stated May 2013? Betcha Big Red is going to wait until just before the S5 is Out to release their S4.

  • disastrousrainbow

    BFD. As much as I’d love Verizon to be first to release every hot new phone, at the end of the day if it’s a couple of weeks or a month after everyone else, whatever, those other carriers may get the satisfaction of being first out of the gate, but when all is said and done they end up last in the biggest, most important aspect. I won’t say what because it should be plainly obvious.

    • RaptorOO7

      Oh please do tell us what is the important fact you are leaving out. No free lube with every contract, big shocker.

      Having the biggest network means little if your device(s) are IMPOTENT!!!!!!

      • disastrousrainbow

        No, I’m pretty sure anyone dumb enough to do a contract gets a nice, two-year supply of Astroglide. But unlike every other carrier, at least Verizon’s is in the form of a reliable and extensive 4G network to ease the pain. Someone like me, however, completely forgoes contracts so that doesn’t apply. But I’m sorry (not really) you let yourself get taken for a ride.


    They say “soon” but they actually mean: Some time before you die.

    • just like when they promise updates for their devices with flaws out of the box.. coming soon…

  • JP

    I can’t help but think that this was a mis-tweet that was supposed to say:

    @VZWnews: The #Samsung #Galaxy S4 for #Verizon #Wireless MAY be coming. More #details as #soon as you #eat our #ass. You #miserable #peons.

  • RaptorOO7

    #Verizon #Blows #LubeJob #Last #Carrier #To Get GS4 #

  • The Dude

    Give them a break. Adding locked bootloaders isn’t easy you know!

  • DanSan

    can we all just be happy there is no ugly ass branded home button….

    or did i speak too soon and give them a last minute idea.

    • Le_Patrick

      You spoke to soon

  • zoloft_us3r

    Verizon one of the last to release…I guess that extra step of adding their logo to the home button is a very time constraining process…

    • You would think that they would want to start marketing that beast!

    • Once again proof Verizon sucks a fat veiny one… late to the biggest party of the year for no good reason

    • Nicholassss

      I’m surprise that (from the picture above anyway) there isnt a logo on the home button.

  • dannyWHITE

    Don’t care

    • Wes

      thanks for your wonderful input. If you don’t care…don’t 1. open up the article when you know you’re going to “not care” cause you already know what the articles going to be about 2. take time to write a useless comment that just spurs the negativity and apathy of this generation

  • Tim242

    Why can’t those @ssholes just give us a date. Verizon, I wish I could quit you

  • troy studnicka

    Jeez everyone quite ur damn bitching and moaning. I myself don’t mind waiting a month to get the best smart phone on the best network on the planet. I’d rather wait a little bit to make sure the bugs are worked out than throw us a device that might have problems. Verizon isn’t the best network for nothing!!! As they say, you get what you pay for 🙂

    • RaptorOO7

      Do you really think its about testing, its about locking the frickin phone down, finding any of the rooting measures that are released and getting Samsung to close them before launch or when it arrives you will get an immediate update like the GN2 fiasco.

  • paul_cus

    I’m still sticking with mid June.

  • ImmaDroid

    Im sure it’ll be a whole month later than every other carrier.. They need time to put their touches on it…

  • MGardnerDA1235

    Well…gonna be a Thursday, right? Calling 23rd.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    What phones has VZW released this year? Now they’re pushing back the GS4 until the END of may (We know it won’t be here till the last day, lets be honest). . . SO? What are they making room for? Certainly Please not the Lumia. But that’s all I can think of.

    • Emoney

      i’m sure their big news will be releasing the Lumia months after it came out

  • duke69111

    There’s no Verizon Logo on the home button.

    • Thomas

      For now 😉

      • steve

        this is an S not a note

    • RaptorOO7

      That we know of. Just because Samsung used a stock photo on their announcement page doesn’t mean sqaut.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    May 32nd

  • I don’t think they used enough hashtags.

  • May 2016

  • Austin Warren

    Verizon seriously sucks at hash tagging

    • hashtagtroll


  • May 31 11:59:59PM

    • XphoneTroll

      Its delayed..will be released in June..lmao

      • michael arazan

        Verizon spared no expense for Advertising the S4 on their network there, should of posted this on Reddit, would have gotten more attention

  • Patrick T.

    Surprised Verizon didn’t use more hashtags….

    Namely #LubeupBigRedisComing
