What about Sprint and U.S. Cellular? Both carriers have been pretty quiet about their plans, though that changes today for Sprint. The Now Network has officially confirmed the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear will arrive on October 4th, though they’ve yet to reveal if and when the handset will go up for pre-order.
The Galaxy Note 3 will set customers back $349.99 with a two-year contract – Yes, that’s $50 more than AT&T and Verizon. Turning to the Gear, we get the same $299 outright price tag seen with other carriers.
If you are interested in getting the Note 3 on Sprint’s network but are looking to avoid the hefty on-contract price, it’s worth mentioning that the Note 3 will be one of the first devices to work with Sprint’s One Up early upgrade program. No word on how much they asking upfront, but it’s possible that their “introductory $0 down promo” might apply to this device as well.
