If you’ve been impatiently waiting to get your hands on a shiny new Samsung Galaxy S4, you may not have to wait much longer. Last month Samsung announced that its new flagship will be landing on seven carriers in the U.S., and as April draws to a close we’re beginning to see increased retail availability.
While some carriers and electronics shops have suffered from inventory shortages due to high demand, others have the new 5-inch Galaxy S3 successor in stock online and in stores. Read on to find out where you can grab a Samsung Galaxy S4 right now.
The Galaxy S4 is available both online and in-store at AT&T retailers, although this can vary depending on location. The 16GB variant sells for $199 with a two-year contract in both White Frost and Black Mist. If you choose to opt for a one-year contract instead, you’ll have to pay $449 for the device. You can also choose to pay month-to-month, but you’ll end up paying the full retail unit price of $639.
You can preorder the Samsung Galaxy S4 on Verizon’s website today, but the device won’t ship until May 30. With a two-year contract the 16GB version costs $199 in Black Mist or White Frost, and you can opt for a bundle package that includes a silicon case and car charger with the device for $249. If you choose month-to-month payments rather than a two-year plan, you can purchase the Galaxy S4 for the full retail price of $649.
Last week Sprint announced that “unexpected inventory challenges” have delayed the S4’s launch on its network, which was originally slated for April 27. You can preorder the device online now through Sprint’s website in either Black Mist or White Frost for $149 with a two-year contract. The carrier says there is also “limited in-store availability,” although that’s likely to vary depending on location. Without the two-year contract, the S4 sells for the full price of $599.

You can order the T-Mobile variant of the Galaxy S4 through Best Buy’s website today for $299 with a two-year contract, but you’ll have to wait to snag the Sprint and AT&T versions in stores. Through Best Buy, the AT&T handset will sell for $199, while the Sprint edition is priced at $249 with a two-year contract.

RadioShack offers the Galaxy S4 for Sprint, Verizon and AT&T, although not all versions are available just yet. Through RadioShack, the Sprint variant will sell for $249 on a two-year contract in either Black Mist or White Frost. The website says the device “ships when available,” but doesn’t specify a launch window. You can also opt to purchase the AT&T Galaxy S4 in-store for $199, but RadioShack doesn’t offer any additional details through its website. The retailer says a Verizon version is on the way, but doesn’t mention whether we can expect to see it on store shelves.
Through Walmart’s website, you can purchase the Samsung Galaxy S4 for AT&T for $168 with a two-year contract. The phone is available in Black Mist and White Frost, although the retailer hasn’t specified when the handset will ship.
