AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint confirm plans to carry the Note 3 and Galaxy Gear

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 with Samsung Galaxy Gear

We already knew that the Note 3 would arrive on all three major U.S. carriers, alongside U.S. Cellular – still, it’s always nice to receive official confirmation. Yesterday Verizon officially announced its plans to carry both the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, and the Galaxy Gear. Now Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T have also confirmed the Note 3 is on its way to their networks.

Curiously, Sprint’s announcement did not mention the Galaxy Gear at all. We won’t read too much into that just yet, but it’s still an interesting omission. None of the big 4 carriers have announced any pricing or release details just yet, though Verizon has announced that pre-orders from Big Red will start on September 6th.

As for U.S. Cellular? We know that the regional network will at the very least get the Note 3, but the carrier has yet to officially confirm its plans.

The wait is on, ladies and gentlemen! In the meantime, you might want to check out Samsung’s “Introducing Samsung Galaxy Note 3” video to get a better idea of what to expect from the next-gen Note.

      Coming from an isheep is expected to heard that… or not really?

        Note 2 buying a Z ultra actually…Thats awesome that you love it just my opinion no offence intended.

        • wferreira

          A productivity tool you can’t see it as a turd covered diamond and never is over paid as you choose to get it. Personally I getting it as an upgrade from a GS2 Skyrocket.
          Maybe is not really necessary for who owns Note 2 but a lot of people just was holding it upgrade for something newer.

            I think I understand your point and I agree. Unless you can duplicate these OS “touchwiz” enhancents then its about OS/Hardware. My opinion is based solely on hardware analysis and certain personal asjustments. The phone if your a short person is un usable “small hands/tiny small pant pockets. If your a tall individual the z ultra’s extra screen space and other features make note 3 a bad choice. Also I would feel like a homosexual carrying a barbie matel quality toy. Those rivets lines on the side will make the plastic chip beautifully enhancing my va GG I would have to grow to buy one of these.

      Hey everyone has their personal preferences. I used to buy Mac’s and iOS and PalmOS, WindowsMobile, WindowsPhone, Android and BlackBerry. For me Samsung has show they have the best ideas for Android with design, support and products. They wised up and stopped the carriers from offering a 16GB GN3 by simply removing the option. All other OEM’s are still doing 16GB and with NO MICROSD either.

      The Z1 is nice, but no Verizon option and 16GB is just too little storage for my daily needs. But hey its still a sweet phone.

      • Gilles LeBlanc

        I agree

      Just because you don’t like it doesn’t automatically give you the right to talk down to those that do.

      Like Raptor said, everybody has their preferences and I used to be an Apple follower, but then changed my mind when I realized that Android was more open and Samsung is leading the charge.

    I’d rather have the Xperia Z1. T-mobile…make it happen!

    Well Verizon WILL have to announce the price tomorrow when pre-orders go up so people know what they are paying.
