[Update: May 30th release date confirmed] Pre-order the Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4 tomorrow

While other carriers — namely Sprint and T-Mobile — are having to face the music of announcing delays of their Samsung Galaxy S4, Verizon is resting easy knowing they have yet to provide a release date. With that, the carrier is taking this opportunity to let everyone know that they’ll be able to pre-order their version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 starting tomorrow. Best Buy has already been accepting pre-orders, but we know some folks like to get their devices from the source.

We wouldn’t be surprised if many of you are looking to take Verizon up on its offer after reading our Samsung Galaxy S4 review. It’s certainly sounding like one of 2013’s finest phones, and the $250 (before $50 mail-in rebate) it will cost you to walk away with one would be as sensible as any phone purchase you’ve made in the past.

Verizon still isn’t interested in setting an exact date just yet, but the latest rumors say May 30th is a popular mark on the calendar around the offices of Big Red. The carrier won’t confirm anything until it’s ready, of course, but our calendars remain fixated on that day.

[Update]: A public relations representative for Verizon Wireless has confirmed, via Twitter, that the device will, in fact, launch May 30th. This isn’t a formal statement or announcement by Verizon, but we can’t get any more solid confirmation than this for the time being.

    I find it hard to believe that they would begin preorders this far in advance if it was gonna be out on May 30.

      Perhaps you weren’t around for the Galaxy Note 2 launch. Verizon does this all the time, actually (mainly for phones that aren’t exclusive to them).

      • jaycemiskel

        Ah ok, maybe I was thinking about the exclusives. It seems like most of their phones are exclusive, so I just overlooked the Note 2.


    now, to convince my wife to let me use her upgrade….

  • Crimsonshadow774

    I have an upgrade on 5/18 :).

    Take my money!

    Two upgrades ready

  • supremekizzle

    Think of it this way; after the two year contract is up, you would have given Verizon enough money to buy two, maybe three, S4’s. ; )

    Love that Big Red gets the S4 almost a full month after everyone else…

    • effApple

      Thats just Verizon being Verizon.. everything they do is delayed

  • gloriousnumber1

    Can you arrange to buy it full price with the new payment plan at pre-order?

      I’m wondering the same. My girlfriend just lost her phone and doesn’t have insurance and my contract still has another year. So I was going to look into this and give her my current Razr Maxx.

  • Flyguy94

    Still no off contract price?


      i see month to month at $650….i think ill just save up a little extra and not extend the contract (also keep unlimited!!) worth the price!

  • chilllax

    Verizon just told me I could pre-order at 9 a.m. MST.

  • ash sibb
