It looks like AT&T is unperturbed by neither T-Mobile CEO's rant about carriers ripping consumers off heavily on subsidized premium smartphones, nor his company's plans to sell the Galaxy S4 for as little as $99 upfront. America's number one cellular carrier is going ahead with plans to release Samsung's flagship mobile handset for the season, the Galaxy S 4, at priced starting at $249.99, with a two-year contract.
AT&T will start taking orders from April 16, although it didn't announce when it will be able to ship the handsets. If you can hold out till May 1, T-Mobile can give you the same device under $100. Sprint and Verizon haven't released their dates, yet. At $249.99, AT&T is pricing the Galaxy S4 almost $50 above what it asked for the Galaxy S III, and the iPhone 5.
