T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S4 release date pushed to April 29th

Folks on T-Mobile were supposed to get up eager and excited to purchase a great, new phone this morning after reading our awesome Samsung Galaxy S4 review, but those guys won’t have the chance to do that just yet. Some unfortunate news has come through the pipeline in regards to the carrier’s launch plans for the device. Online availability for T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S4 has been pushed back to April 29th, according to a statement by the UNcarrier.

T-Mobile says the unfortunate push back was due to some unexpected delays with inventory deliveries. The delay is only five days long, and the typical “well you’ve waited this long spiel” might normally work here, but I feel your pain, Magentans. It’s tough to think you’ll have a crack at a device on a certain day, only to have your wishes and desires ripped from your grasp at the very last minute.

Heading to a T-Mobile store won’t do you much good, unfortunately, as that launch was always slated for May 1st. That said, perhaps you can satiate your appetite for the phone by taking part in some healthy, healing discussion taking place at the Samsung Galaxy S4 section at AndroidForums.com. Make an account and take a peek. Of course, not everyone will find this therapeutic — this could make the wait just as long.

I suppose you could call into work these next three days and hibernate over the weekend until the device is available for purchase, but that isn’t particularly productive (or good for your health). Instead, we’re inviting you to release your frustrations in the comments section below. You have a shoulder and a friend in us, so confide and know that you’re not alone.

    It must be the #CYBERMEN . They always seem to be looking for a way to torture us. You just wait until The #Doctor heard about this. I know Claire was getting him one for his birthday.

      “hears” not “heard”. Nothing like messing up a joke at the butt crack of morning. #Whovians I deeply apologize.

        Yeah there is just so much wrong with that post. I had to rack my brain over who claire might be till I realized you were referring to Clara. Too early for this sort of nonsense!

          Damn. They need to revoke my bow tie.
          You are totally correct. Didn’t proofread. Clara, yes. Claire is from Heroes. Apparently my Swype prefers Heroes.

    Is this a tech site, or 5th grade English class, get a grip people!!!

      The killer is that I can’t edit posts on my mobile, so I end up typing like a moron because I don’t remember to double check what I typed before I click the Send arrow.
      And yes, I an a 5th grader when it comes to Doctor Who. I actually meant Clara, Swype disagreed with my tastes in TV shows.
      All apologies for muddying your post Q . I have mad love for the Phandroid crew.
