The Galaxy S5s are coming. AT&T(s t) and U.S. Cellular(s usm) pre-sales just started today, and T-Mobile(s tmus) will be opening up its pre-order channels on Monday. You can also wait until the phone hits T-Mobile stores on April 11.
T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy S5 for $0 down. That doesn’t mean you’re getting it for free, though. You’ll have to pay for the full cost of the device in monthly installments, just as you would with any other new phone on T-Mobile. In this case, the Galaxy S5 costs $660, which works out to $27.50 per month for 24 months in addition to your monthly bill.
While AT&T is offering a bundle deal with the Galaxy Gear 2 and U.S. Cellular is giving away $50 in Google(s goog) Play credit, T-Mobile is offering the Galaxy Tab 3 for $120 off until March 31 to sweeten the deal. You don’t need to buy a Galaxy S5 in order to get the discount, and T-Mobile will give you 200MB of free data per month for the life of the device.
