Reminder: HTC One (M8) In-store Available Expands Beyond Verizon Today

htc one m8

Verizon’s exclusive hold on in-store availability of the HTC One (M8) comes to an end today, the day before Samsung’s Galaxy S5 hits retail outlets. That means you should be able to walk into an AT&T, T-Mobile, or Sprint store and get your paws on smartphone luxury, as we like to call it. It may be too tall for our liking, but that doesn’t mean this isn’t a finely crafted device with a build quality unlike any other.

Starting at $199 on-contract (or $599 full retail at some locations), the HTC One (M8) is now widely available. AT&T and Sprint should have it today, with T-Mobile in-store availability happening tomorrow.

If you haven’t yet, be sure to read our HTC One (M8) review.

    went to the local t-mobile store and they told me that it wont be available until tomorrow and they pushed the S5 in my face saying that “did you know the S5 will be out tomorrow. ” HTC M8 imo is set up to fail and have a horrible horrible ending. Nothing against Sammy. they have an awesome phone.

      htc m8 is selling really well

      • Mark Aaron Collado

        i hope they stick around. love the boomsound from my girls M7. wish my Nexus 5 was that loud and clear.

    I got my HTC M8 from a sprint store last week. it was a mall store, Went in at 10am on April 4th the guy said he was expecting them to come in via Fedex later that afternoon. I waited around. got some lunch came back and sure enough they did.

    maybe they got it by mistake or got them early or maybe he sold it to me early but nontheless I had it for a week now.

  • nkd

    AT&T has had them in store since April 4th.

    • Chris

      same with at least one of my sprint stores in my metro area

  • Chris

    I got mine from my local sprint store last week. Maybe because I went to a franchise store and not a silly corporate owned one.

    I walked into a T-Mobile store yesterday before work looking to play with the M8. Nope not there. Not until the 12th he told me. Awesome. I’m pretty much not even interested anymore. Just looking forward to the OnePlus One. Or hearing about the Z2 coming to the states.

      It available on the 11th online.

      • ki11ak3nn

        Well I guess the only way to test it out now is to go to a Verizon or AT&T store. I hate Verizon. So AT&T it is.

        • Chris

          I hate verizon as well, but I went in anyway to see what the phone was like. a week later, on april 4th, I went to a sprint store in my local mall and bought one. didsnt have to order on line and wait days, nor unlike droid lifes uneducated posts, I got it the same day…

      • Chris

        doesnt help if you want it the same day

    • flosserelli

      I called my neighborhood T-Mobile store. They already have it in stock but can’t sell it until tomorrow.

    • George264

      You’re telling me that you’re not interested because you couldn’t test the phone today and you can’t wait 1 more day to buy it?
      Dude you need to work on your patience. It’s a fantastic, fantastic phone, you’ll be the one missing out.

      • ki11ak3nn

        No that’s not why. I’m just not interested because it just seems like a slight/moderate upgrade from the M7. I never had the M7, but it was cool when I tested it out. I’m just looking for something different. Like the OnePlus One. Great camera. Great battery. Great screen. It seems like it’s the phone the M8 and S5 should have been. I’m just getting tired of the same carrier branded iterations of phones. The OPO seems like it’s going to change that.

  • mcdonsco

    In store “available”???…

    Er, hum…”Availability”???

    I know, its still early yet.

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    Oh boy…. now the At&t version is at my finger tips. I called off getting the unlocked because of the shipping time…. now Impulse buy is at my finger tips…but no… I won’t do it yet, even for the vine I won’t

  • K

    Anyone bummed that Sprint will be getting an M8 w/ Harmon/Kardon speakers?

    • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

      Pretty sure i’d be bummed enough just being on sprint. They can keep the speakers

      • Chris

        sucks to live in the middle of nowhere

        • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

          Right…

          • Chris

            they are fine in my area…

            like the M8, people expect too miuch…

    • http://www.youtube.com/kimirPORTALS kimir

      It appears to be software only.

    • Chris

      hey, them speakers soundn good

    • George264

      I’m pretty sure the speakers are the same across all the M8s. HTC can’t afford to be separating production of the same phone just for one carrier. I’m sure it’s software only just like the Beats EQ. I couldn’t care less if it had software or not, just give me speakers that sound well.
