Galaxy Note 3

The Next Big Thing is nearly here! The Galaxy Note 3‘s launch is less than a month away, and is already up for pre-order from AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon.

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.

  • Maurico Rembert

    Sprint is offering the phone on the one up program but not sure what the subsidized cost will be if it is only $699.99then that is actually not a bad price

    • Maurico Rembert

      the phone will be 0 down

        Sprint is also allowing their existing customers to switch to the new program until January 1st all you have to do if you do not have a upgrade just turn in your existing phone

  • illpass

    $50 more than other carriers and probably only single band… FAILED

    • Emp1976

      I agree! Plus crappy service. I might be switching if they can’t get their act together.

  • Robert Crosby

    $30 upgrade fee + 299.99 and tax is about 350 on Verizon.
