Verizon officially selling 32GB Samsung Galaxy S4


Samsung Galaxy S4 Verizon Wireless

AT&T had timed exclusivity on the Samsung Galaxy S4 in 32GB flavoring, but the nation’s biggest carrier — Verizon — has finally gotten a chance to shine with that same configuration. A 32GB Galaxy S4 device is quite important considering nearly half of the 16GB configuration is taken up by the system. With apps growing in size everyday it’s become increasingly difficult to deal with suggest little storage.

Samsung vowed to create an Apps2SD solution for folks who are affected by this, but having 32GB configurations of the device is the next best thing (and, really, only useful for those who aren’t already locked into a two-year contract with the 16GB version). If you want to opt for this one you’ll be asked to pay $300 and sign a new two-year agreement. Head to Verizon’s website to take care of that now.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. why would anyone pay for this? Get the 16gb for 100 less and put a 32gb microsd card in for a few bucks…

    1. Not everyone wants to resort to installing applications on their SD card I guess.

    2. Jelly Bean doesn’t use sdcard memory like it uses internal memory. Its not nearly as easy to manage as it use to be in older android versions like gingerbread.

  2. What is the non-contract price? $700? $750? Those of us who still have unlimited data and pay full price to keep it would like to know.

      Say what? As long as you do not
      change your plan you can put whatever phone you’d like on it. Pull your
      old sim out, slap it in the new phone, activate it and you’re off.

    2. How come ur losing ur unlimited

      1. Never said I was losing it.

    3. Unlimited data or not, you need your head checked if you drop $700 on any phone.

      1. Why? The upfront cost is significantly cheaper than the long term costs of extremely high data rates. Plus I like to get new phones often. Don’t hate me because I can easily afford to drop $700 on a new phone when I feel like it.

  3. Even if you pay full price for a phone you can’t keep unlimited data anymore. As soon as you switch service to a phone, whether purchased through Verizon or one through Craigslist, you’ll lose unlimited data. This is to move everyone to the share everything plan.

    1. Since when?

    2. source?

    3. Incorrect. That is only if you do it online. Only interact with Verizon in person or over the phone.

      1. Thank you sir. The website is weird sometimes & will tell you that unlimited data is no longer available when you select to keep your existing plan. If it does just do as Brian here says & make your order over the phone. Nobody panic ;)

      2. This is also incorrect, I just activated a new device online and had the option to keep unlimited.

    4. false, bought my wife an S4 two weeks ago at full price and still have unlimited data

    5. Say what? As long as you do not change your plan you can put whatever phone you’d like on it. Pull your old sim out, slap it in the new phone, activate it and you’re off.

    6. Stop spreading your lies, sir.

  4. That price is a joke, and it just NOW coming out on big red on Verizon is a bigger joke… Folks should just get the HTC One, they don’t have this silly problem with storage

    1. Having no SD card slot is the ultimate storage problem.

  5. Verizon can kiss my ass. One more year on this contract then I’m gone.

    1. Care to elaborate why?

  6. I was able to keep my unlimited data plan and still get the S4 at the subsidized price. If you are on a family plan, you need to have a dumbphone line that is due for an upgrade. You upgrade the dumbphone line to smartphone line(2gb), get the S4, swap the phone to your phone #, then downgrade the dumbphone line you had upgraded back to a dumbphone line and you should be good. go to a authorized verizon retailer for this.

    1. Your right I work for Costco I do this a lot to help keep people from buying it out that’sjjust insane ^o^

    2. That’s pretty smart, I hadn’t heard of anyone doing that. My in-law has a dumb phone on my plan, I’ll try this once we have a Google Experience replacement for the old Nexus. Does the temporary dumbphone upgrade charge you for the entire month, or is it prorated?

      1. We had to pay the upgrade fee of $30, but our bill remained the same. There was no charge for that temporary dumbphone upgrade on the bill since they had switched it back(downgraded) same day.

  7. Hi, friends, I am so happy here to share my shopping online experience. really pleasant. several days ago, I bought the hottest Smartphone in 2013, S4, 5 inch Android 4.2, Quad-Corem Smartphone. yesterday I have recieved it. oh, make me so surprise!! beautiful exterior, atmospheric screen, high definition, smooth quad-core. agility touchscreen. and other phone parts, for example: http://urlin.it/3d6a8

    Battery parameter: Standard battery content: 3200mAh

    Talk time: 120-150 (Unit: Mins)

    Standby time: 120-180 (Unit: Hour)

    Phonebook: 1000 groups

    Ivory Color white.Sapphire

    Display: 5.0 “color IPS 1600K

    Display: 1280 * 720 pixels

    Camera: 8MP AF 3.0 MP front camera, flash light

    and other function support. and some other more details. really really perfect. far better than I expected. so don’t be hesitate! believe me, believe this phone. you will get much surprise!!

    honesty speaking, it is non-brand Smartphone. called “China clone”. however it is just like the real Samsung 4 Smartphone. all the functions are the surprise to me. in fact this is my second time bought phone in this online shop, first time I bought this €99.99 4.7 inch Android 4.1 i9300 8MP. so pleasant deal that time. and I still am using this i9300 phone, good quality. so this time I bought this €159.99 5 inch S4 Android 4.2 Quad-Corem 8MP without any hesitation. still perfect, didn’t let me down. holding in my hand is so style . deeply love this phone. it is the hottest phone currently. get others envy. this phone is perfect, and its price is the cheapest. highest discount now. I have saved €140.01. so good. I will introduce my friends and you to patronize. highly recommend it to everyone:

    one more interesting thing: one of my friends bought four phones at once. give his family as gifts. so amazing. believable and worthy

  8. Would it really be so hard for Samsung to release — or at least announce — all the variations of the phone at once? Had I known about some of them beforehand (this one, the Active, the camera) I likely wouldn’t have bought the S4.

  9. This stinks. There was no way to know for sure a 32gb version would be released by anyone but AT&T. Now those of us who bought the 16 gb are stuck with it. No sour grapes here, just the fact. It is bad business in my opinion.

    1. I am about 3 weeks into my new 16GB S4. While I am not pissed off, I am disappointed

  10. The price for me shows up as 250$ with new contract not 300
