Galaxy Note 3

While Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile have all started taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 3, Sprint is yet to spill the beans on its launch plans for Samsung’s latest flagship handset.

As we already know, the Now Network will receive the Galaxy Note 3 as well, at least that’s what Samsung and Sprint said a few weeks ago, back at IFA 2013. But the carrier has remained quiet on actual availability details and pricing structure for the handset.

IBTimes says it spoke to a Sprint retail representative who revealed that the phone will be available with the mobile operator starting with October 2, although this rumored launch date is yet to become official:

[quote qtext=”According to the rep, Samsung visited the store on Wednesday in order to give them a preview of the Note 3 before its release on the network, which indicates that a release on Sprint could coincide with other carriers. ” qperson=”” qsource=”” qposition=”center”]

Pricing details are also unavailable and it’s not clear whether the carrier will start taking pre-orders anytime soon, or whether it’ll start selling its Galaxy Note 3 version directly in stores.

In addition to Sprint, U.S. Cellular is also yet to unveil launch plans for the Galaxy Note 3.

    sprint customer service rep told me yesterday the first week of October it will be available.

    • JG

      Cool thanks for the info

  • mindsnapper

    Why the cloak and dagger from Sprint? – just tell me how much it will cost and when it will be available already (officially). Unless they are going to offer some type of killer deal then this behavior is simply negative PR for them.

    • Bilbo Beirut

      And trust me, Sprint doesn’t need any more negative PR.

  • Mr. Raider™

    Hell yeah!!! About time!!! I’ve been waiting patiently waiting for this beast and for Sprint to improve their network.. glad I stuck around!
