Reminder: HTC One M9, Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Pre-orders Now Live

It’s pre-order day for the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and One M9. Well, at least on carriers not named Verizon. Big Red pre-orders for these phones won’t start up until April 1, so keep that in mind.

Regardless, each of these phones is now purchasable through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and US Cellular. You can also get them from many retail locations, such as Best Buy. And as a bonus, if you order the Galaxy S6 through Best Buy, you get a free wireless charger.  (more…)

Verizon has the Lowest Prices on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge

Believe it or not, Verizon has the best full retail (off contract) pricing on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. To see pricing for each carrier, you can check out our pricing guide, but the numbers are substantially lower in all tiers (32GB, 64GB, and 128GB) on Big Red than they are at AT&T and T-Mobile, or even US Cellular. Sprint is hiding their pricing and doing some gimmicky lease program, so we can’t really compare anything there.  (more…)

HTC One M9 Prices at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint

Now that we have Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge pricing and availability out of the way, it’s time to focus our attention for a minute on the HTC One M9. Like Samsung’s flagships, the One M9 will go up for pre-order tomorrow, March 27, and arrive at most carriers April 10. Since there is only one model, pricing here is pretty straight forward, with a full retail price sitting right around $650 at most places, but there will also be monthly payment options.

Here we go, again.  (more…)

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge Prices at Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint

Samsung announced this morning that the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge go up for pre-order starting tomorrow, March 27, with nationwide availability opening up on April 10. That doesn’t mean that all carriers will have the device available that day, so we thought we would gather all of the information from individual carriers and slap it for you in a single post. Let’s make this easy – well, as easy as it can be with two phones, three colors, three storage sizes, and who knows how many price points and payment plans.

Here we go.  (more…)

Sprint Will Now Cover All Costs When You Switch Over From Your Current Carrier

Sprint, Sprint, Sprint, I don’t know how you are ever going to make any money, but you don’t seem to care at this point. Bring over all the customers and you will figure it out later, right?

This morning, Sprint, who may or may not have given up their “3rd largest US carrier” title within the last couple of months, has another reason for you to switch from your current carrier and come to the land of WiMax…err Spark…err…Wiz Khalifa black and yellow. If you switch to Sprint from your current carrier, Sprint will reimburse all the costs associated with the move, which means your early termination fees and any remaining payments on a phone installment plan will be covered. “No matter what is owed,” the press release reads.

How does it work? Like this.  (more…)
