HTC One (M8) Now Available Through Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint – Google Play Edition Listing Now Live

HTC M8 - 8

The HTC One (M8) is finally official, now available through a few select US carriers through their online stores. Customers hoping to grab the new One can do so online through Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, but it appears folks hoping for T-Mobile and US Cellular will need to remain patient. 

Each carrier has the device listed at $199.99 on a new two year agreement, but all of them do offer a type of financing and monthly payment options.

Links: Verizon | AT&T | Sprint

Also, a listing for the Google Play Edition of the device is now live, priced at $699.99. You can’t buy it yet, but with the page being live on Google Play, we can’t be too far off from a release.

Who here is buying one?

    Do you think Sprint will get the Glacier Silver HTC One M8? I am ready to upgrade my S4, and I want the silver HTC One M8 as it is the best color available.

    7 hunnybee’s? wait for the 6

    • socalrailroader

      Honeybee’s.

    FYI if you decide to buy One on contract, the coupon code “VERIZON30″
    still works for 30% off ($60) the normal “$200″ contract price, dropping
    it to $140 (or “VZWDEAL” works for $50 off). Still have to pay the $30
    upgrade/$35 activation fee, and of course taxes.
    (sorry for the multiple posts in different articles but I’m just trying to get this out
    to anyone looking to buy this, to save you guys some dollars!)

    Anyone know whether Verizon has exclusivity on the Glacial Silver model or whether Sprint and AT&T will get it soon too?

    • User

      Bestbuy.com lists the glacial silver as “coming soon” for at&t.

  • M3D1T8R

    So anyone know how do we get WiFi hotspot to work on this thing without paying Verizon $30 more a month? (Unlimited data)
    I’m one click from using an upgrade to buy it. “VZWDEAL” coupon still works by the way for $50 off = $180 upgrade price +tax instead of $230 (including $30 “upgrade fee”).
    Upgrade other dumb phone line, activate on my line, remove data plan from dumb line.

  • MikeSaver

    Anyone else feel like phones just don’t look as cool without a huge verizon logo on the front?

  • Daniel

    Great that they offer a stock version, but why not on Verizon :-( Also, any word on a new HTC One Mini?

  • RichFromBX

    just called the local verizon store and asked them what the off-contract price was (to make sure it’s the same as online) and the rep said they don’t sell phones off contract, does that sound right?

    • LionStone

      I did with my last 2 phones. They certainly prefer that you don’t!

    • flosserelli

      That rep doesn’t know his anus from a hole in the ground. Verizon will sell you a phone off contract for full retail price. Call them again and ask another rep for the price.

    • NJ

      Just purchased one. $599

    • Johnny Steele

      They can sell off contract. They have to. Most stores just don’t make money off of it, or it goes against the quota. Buy accessories with it or something, that should appease them.

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      That’s that BS talk to get you to buy it on contract. Just order it online and do instore pick up….. Or go to the store and tell them you want it off contract. They can’t not sell it to you.

    • Daistaar

      That’s wrong. He may have said that because the contract and service is where they make their money. The phone isn’t their money-maker which is why they don’t mind subsidizing. If you’re taking them out the loop on data, then that hurts them, which is why he didn’t mention selling off-contract.

  • Kelly OBrien

    HTC ONE (M8) ! FTW ! Said no one ever

    • LionStone

      HTC ONE M8!! FTW!! I just said it

  • MichaelFranz

    I just went to my local VZW by my job and was the firts to get his hands on it after the set it up on display. They had 2 colors, gunmetal and silver. The gunmetal looks phenominal. By far my favorite looking HTC device. As for how it feels, im torn. Obviously its attached to a security device so i couldnt get the best feel. but it feels lighter compared to the HCT one and my droid maxx. Its weird because it has the weight of a GS3 but the feel is metal and isnt sharp metal. Its very smooth and fits beautiful in hand. The display is very nice, I just cant stand sense. Part of me wanted to just install Nova and call it a day…

    the camera was very nice the software features are ok and a welcome addition. the 3D effect is very cool and i’ll say its fun to play with, but i doubt you’ll use it much. The selective focus is nice but with the picture i took of the VZW sales floor you had numerous stands and displays and a few people. It does focus on what you select but it does it by depth rather then the actual area. For instance i focused on the stand furthest from the shot but when i did it also focused slightly on the people standing to the far right of the image.

    I’ll wait to these guys get their hands on it, maybe it was just me

  • Disqus_n00b

    On contract:

    $199 up front, $480 subsidies, $36 activation
    $715 total

    GPE Edition: $699 total

    It’s what I expected, but you have to think with the growth of prepaid and uncarrier, that this kind of release is coming to an end.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Posting from the M8 at the Verizon Store! Damn I love this phone. The Dot View case is cool but it’s kinda ugly tbh

    • AbbyZFresh

      Already at the Verizon store. Hopefully the people aren;t looking at you weird with all your excitement what you’re looking at the screen for. ;)

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Lol They were looking at me like typical carrier employees with $$ signs in their eyes.

        • MichaelFranz

          its ok the guy said to me i was the first one that knew about it other then employees. Then he tried to push me to buy it…..

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            lol I don’t even let them talk to me for more than 5 seconds.

        • flosserelli

          So how is the camera?

          • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

            You know how that goes, it was in the Dot case, with a hunk of security junk bolted to the back I couldn’t really tell. I’m not a big camera person anyway so I’m not the best to ask. Reviews all seem to say the same thing.

    • Jkdem85

      Did your Verizon store sell the case yet? Mine wouldn’t sell it (didn’t have it for sale yet.) Loving this phone

      • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

        Got to already? What color? I didn’t ask if they had it in Stock though.

        What was your phone before?

        • Jkdem85

          Yep got it in grey. Got out my note 3 was just too much lag occurring out of nowhere. HTC phone is so smooth in comparission it’s like coming to a Ferrari from an Abrahams tank

  • The Narrator

    Omg HTC LIFE .com!!!!!!!!

    Jk.

  • Tien Pham

    how’s camera on the GE??? If there’s no change, I dont see any change between the m7 GE and m8 GE.

  • Jprime

    This phone looks like RoboCop

  • dane

    Out of every carrier, Vzw has the best off contract deal

  • Matthew DiGiacomo

    Really T-Mobile? I was excited to buy it today too..

  • dane

    Why is it $700 on the play store but only $600 on Vzw.com??

    • The Narrator

      Google tax

      • AbbyZFresh

        Yet Google can’t tax Nexus phones?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Play Store? That’s the GPE. Not the same thing.

    • Miguel

      Unlocked phone vs locked to one carrier, plain and simple.

    • Cael

      It’s obvious HTC is trying to force people to buy into their Sense environment with a $100 discount.

      • LionStone

        Discount? I paid $600. for my DNA… same price now for the M8.

        • Cael

          The GPE is $700. Non-GPE Sense version is $600.

    • fartbubbler

      costs money to remove Sense.

    • michael arazan

      It cost a lot of money to remove sense from the phone to make it run smoother

  • Miguel

    I’m buying the Nexus 6 in this body, that’s what I want.

    • Eric

      Soooo Google Play Edition?

    • AbbyZFresh

      Too bad. Nexus 6 will be all LG from now on.

  • hyperbeatser

    dat bottom bezel #HTCdonk

    • Xeeros

      I agree, did HTC really need that vanity logo on the front? My wife’s Moto X doesn’t feel the need to plug the brand or the carrier on the front.

      • sirmipsalot

        If your wife’s phone feels *anything*, we have bigger problems in the world than the aesthetics of a mass-produced consumer electronics device. Like, for example, its sentience.

    • LionStone

      BoomSound!! ONE UP!

  • Xeeros

    now to see if Verizon has a dev edition? I highly doubt the google play edition will be Verizon compatible and I avg. 50GB a month now. Can’t bear to part with unlimited data.

    • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

      50 GB?! What do you do? Watch porn 2 hours a day on mobile data?

      • flosserelli

        Whatever it takes to get through the day, right?

      • Xeeros

        Last month was 140GB… No pr0n. Just TV shows and movies.

        • MatthewSimmons

          Good lord I am surprised Verizon has never contacted you(Do they do that?). I was worried about using 16gigs last month but now I can relax.

          • rawson815

            I use well over 200 GB a month and have not heard one word

        • http://people.ign.com/mrfrodo24 MrFrodo24

          Would you not just rather watch those TV shows and movies on an actual TV screen? Or do you use mobile hotspot?

    • Jason Greathouse

      Yep the fine print says that Verizon is not compatible. Only GSM networks. Darn it.
