Samsung Galaxy S5 pre-orders similar to other carriers

Following the unveiling of pre-order plans by a number of other carriers, Sprint and RadioShack have both revealed how they will sell the Samsung Galaxy S5. RadioShack will start accepting pre-orders from March 21st, while Sprint has opened up its pre-orders for the smartphone today, and will be offering the new Samsung smart watch range as well.

When its pre-orders open, RadioShack will be attempting to tempt customers by offering a $50 coupon, as well as offering up to $300 to customers trading in their old devices. The retailer will also be offering the Samsung Gear smart watch collection at the smartphone's launch, but did not state if they will be pre-orderable, nor how much the watches nor the Galaxy S5 itself will cost.

Sprint is more up-front about the Galaxy S5 by taking orders from today for the handset, with shipping expected on April 11th. Normally priced at $649.99off-contract or $199.99 up-front on a two-year commitment with a $50 mail-in rebate via a reward card, Sprint is also offering Easy Pay on the smartphone, with 24 monthly installments of $27.09. Customers buying it under a Framily plan can also receive a free Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, though this too will require its own two-year data plan.

Sprint will also be offering the Gear 2 for $300 on the release date, with the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit shipping for $200 each on the same day as well.

AT&T and US Cellular have both made the Galaxy S5 available to pre-order, as revealed yesterday, while T-Mobile will be waiting until March 24th. Verizon Wireless has yet to reveal its launch plans.
