Samsung Galaxy S4 Online Release Delayed For T-Mobile To April 29

Samsung Galaxy S4 enthusiasts who are T-Mobile customers are going to have to wait until after the weekend.

T-Mobile has pushed back online sales until April 29, due to an unexpected inventory delay. The carrier had originally announced online sales would begin on April 24.

For those who can wait even just a few days longer, the phone will be available in brick-and-mortar stores on May 1.

T-Mobile's loss may be just the thing needed for AT&T, which is now poised to start selling the highly-anticipated phones on April 25. The company was able to ship its smartphones much sooner than expected.

"Customers who pre-ordered their smartphone early can begin receiving it as soon as April 25th," said AT&T, according to CNET.

Currently, AT&T plans to sell the Galaxy S4 for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Sprint made pre-ordering the device available on April 18 for $249 with a two-year contract. It's also offering new customers a $100 credit to switch over from another carrier.

Only Verizon hasn't released a date for pre-ordering the Galaxy S4. The company only noted the phone will be available sometime in May.

When T-Mobile does start selling the device, it will offer a new rate called the Simple Choice Plan. That price is a $149.99 downpayment with a monthly $20 added for 24 months.

The carrier posted an apology about the delay, according to Engadget:

"We know customers are really looking forward to getting their new Samsung Galaxy S 4 soon. However, due to an unexpected delay with inventory deliveries, the Galaxy S 4 will not be available on as planned on Wednesday, April 24. Instead, online availability is expected to begin on Monday, April 29. We apologize for any inconvenience and are working with Samsung to deliver the device to T-Mobile customers as soon as possible.
