While most carriers are opting to release the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $200 for the 16GB and $250 for the 32GB version, T-Mobile’s revealed to be pricing them differently.
Engadget’s gotten their hands on a pricing sheet for the device for both value and classic plans. If you were to buy the 16GB device with a two-year contract on their classic plan you’d be paying $280 for the device up front, and that’s only following a $50 mail-in rebate.
T-Mobile’s also offering an early upgrade price of $450, a viable option for those who want the phone at a discount but don’t want to wait until their contract is up.
For value plan customers, you can put down $230 in-store to receive the device, with $20 monthly payments attached to your bill until the phone’s $630 off-contract price is paid off.
As usual, if you want to break out with the phone you’ll have to pay the remainder of its cost up front. We can’t be sure what T-Mobile’s reasoning is, especially considering they don’t even have LTE radios inside compared to their competitors, but that’s what we’ll have to accept for the time being. Is anyone still in for one? [via Engadget]
