The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini was first rumored as allegedly heading to Verizon Wireless. For some reason, however, the phone appears to be missing in action. There is no word from the carrier when and if it ever is going to offer the device. Don’t make a sad face. It looks like you will be able to grab the miniaturized version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone from at least two of the US largest carriers. According to @evleaks, the Galaxy S4 Mini is on its way to grace the shops of AT&T and Sprint.
Three days after a special event during which the iPhone 5C was announced, pre-order pages go live at Apple’s store as well as at AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint and T-Mobile. The handset will start shipping on September 20th but you can secure your unit today to make sure you will be among the first customers to get their hands on the device. Pricing is similar on all carriers, with some subtle differences only if you go for installment plan.
Today is the day that we have been waiting for since we learned that Apple was working on the next generation of its iPhone. As expected, the iPhone 5S, as it is called, was announced today in Cupertino in California. In the US, the phone will be available from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless starting September 20th for $199.99 with a new two-year contract. This is the price for a 16 GB model. If you need your handset with more memory, the 32 GB and 64 GB versions will retail for $299.99 and $399.99, respectively.

Regular price at Sprint is set at the same level as AT&T and Verizon, that is $199.99 with a two-year contract. However, if you fulfill certain conditions, you will be able to get the phone at a much lower price. All you have to do is port your number from another carrier and Sprint will cut $100 of Moto X’s price, offering you the device for $99.99.
Sprint has just added a new Windows Phone device to its roster. The phone in question is rumored earlier the Samsung ATIV S Neo and it is a follow up to the ATIV S from last year. The handset costs $149.99 after $50 mail-in rebate and naturally you will be required to sign a new two-year service agreement with the carrier. The Samsung ATIV S Neo is very similar to its predecessor in terms of both the design and hardware, but with a few refreshing touches.
Sprint has launched the LG Rumor Reflex S messaging phone with full QWERTY keyboard. The phone has been added to its lineup of feature phones which do not require purchasing data plan in opposite to popular smartphones today. The Rumor Reflex S is good for Sprint, their customers, as well as the world. As the trend to be ‘eco-friendly’ continuously booms, the handset can be acknowledged to being ecologically friendly, as it uses recycled materials in its exclusively redesigned outer shell.
Engadget revealed an interesting screenshot loaded with phones to potentially be released on Sprint network soon. Three are as followed: BlackBerry Q10, Red HTC One, and the Ativ S Neo. The Q10 is expecting to arrive on August 20th, taking account to what Verizon and AT&T have priced their versions at $199.99 for the notorious BlackBerry phone. Look out for the Ativ S Neo to also hit the shelves in August, on the 16th. August 16 will also be the arrival date for the Red HTC One.

Sprint for sure took more time to add Windows Phone 8 devices to its roster than the other US carriers. A few months ago the carrier confirmed that it will start offering its first WP8 phones some time “this summer”. However, we had to wait until today to learn when “this summer” is happening. It turns out that Sprint will release the HTC 8XT on July 19th, so you have just 10 days of waiting. The handset will be priced at $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. Obviously, you will be required to sign a new two-year service agreement with Sprint.
As expected, the Sprint Vital hit the stores on June 14. What we did not expect was its price. Previous rumors suggested that the phone would cost $100 on contract, after a $50 mail-in rebate. Well, it does not. Actually the device can be yours for free, as long as you sign a new 2-year service agreement.
The LG Optimus F3 journey to Sprint has come to an end and the phone is almost ready to be offered to customers. The carrier announced that it will start selling the phone online or through 1-800-SPRINT1 on June 14. If you prefer to hand pick your device you will have to wait a little longer. The handset will arrive at brick and mortar stores later this summer. The LG Optimus F3 will be priced at $29.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and will require a new 2-year service agreement. Such budget-friendly price level makes the Optimus F3 the most affordable LTE device offered by Sprint so far.
It seems that a new Android smartphone is on its way to Sprint. Details found in the leaked specs list and photos point to a higher mid-range device known as the ZTE Vital. Or we should rather say the Sprint Vital, since the carrier will launch the phone under its own brand. The Vital will be a result of a close cooperation between Sprint and ZTE and if everything goes as expected, it will be the highest-end product to ever come out of this partnership.
This is a surprise of the day. Just when we thought that the Motorola XFON would be exclusive to AT&T, another model, apparently headed to Verizon, pops up. Soon after, another mysterious Motorola phone shows up at the Federal Communication Commission. A phone coming with the model number XT1056 was spotted at the FCC filing sporting support for Sprint’s distinct LTE Band 25.
Encouraged by the Hydro’s huge success, Kyocera decided to launch two more phones with similar characteristics and slightly upgraded specs. One of them, the Hydro Edge soon will be headed to Sprint and Boost Mobile. Although both carriers are yet to confirm pricing, Kyocera revealed that the Edge will probably start selling at the same affordable price level as did the original Hydro, meaning it may cost $129.99. The phone is bound to be released on Sprint and Boost Mobile by this summer.
LG’s F-series was shown three months ago at World Mobile Congress in Barcelona. Touted as designed for budget conscious customers, the new lineup consists of three smartphones. Two of them, the LG Optimus F5 and the LG Optimus F7 were already presented to the public. The third member of the F series, the LG Optimus F3 still awaits official introduction. Recently we have seen signs that the phone could be available soon and, as promised, should be easy on your wallet.
It was a long wait but it paid off. Starting today, HTC’s flagship phone for this year, the HTC One is finally available for purchase. The handset is offered by two US carriers: AT&T and Sprint. In addition the phone is available via numerous retailers including BestBuy, RadioShack, Walmart, Target, Amazon, and Costco. The HTC One 4G with 32 GB of memory can be yours for $199.99 with a two-year service agreement. The 64 GB model, which has been released on AT&T exclusively, costs $299.99.
On Monday a rumor spread out that Sprint will be selling the HTC One for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Today we are happy to report that it was not April Fool’s day joke and the HTC’s new flagship smartphone will indeed land at Sprint with that exact price tag. The news was confirmed by the carrier itself in a Community post and came together with an announcement of more details regarding the sale.
The international version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 was already approved by FCC and we are waiting for US-bound models to get the Commission’s blessing. Yesterday, two variants of the Galaxy S4 destined at the US market were spotted at FCC. The first one on the list is a device with model number SPH-L720 and is obviously heading to Sprint. The other one, known as the SCH-R970, will be carried by Metro PCS. Both models will be virtually identical in terms of design and specs, there are, however, some differences worth commenting on.
Right now Sprint is the only one of the US major carriers not offering any Windows 8 phones. Actually, Sprint customers could have a taste of the Windows 7 platform with the HTC Arrive, but there is no doubt that the almost non-existent WP portfolio needs refreshing. According to the report, the carrier will start offering two Windows 8 smartphones this summer – the Samsung Ativ S and yet-to-be-announced HTC Tiara. Both phones should be available in May or June.
Recent rumors suggest that Sprint might be looking to expand its portfolio with a new handset from Chinese manufacturer – ZTE. Referred to as the Quantum N8910, although probably it will be launched with a completely different name, the phone falls into mid-range to higher-end category of mobile devices.
