T-Mobile CEO John Legere just announced via Twitter that customers looking to get hold of the new Galaxy Note 5 or Galaxy S6 Edge+ on T-Mobile will be able to start placing orders from tomorrow, Tuesday August 18 from 6am Pacific/9am Eastern. Magenta customers will be able to place orders online at T-Mobile.com, through their myt-mobile app or by calling 1-800-T-MOBILE. There won’t be any pre-orders.
Customers on JUMP! on Demand or those wanting “instant gratification” will need to wait until Friday to get one in a physical brick-and-mortar retail store.
I heard you! You want to preorder and get your new Samsung devices pronto. So, we’re going to speed this up and skip preorders altogether!— John Legere (@JohnLegere) August 17, 2015
T-Mobile was among the first US carriers to announce offering both of Samsung’s newly announced phablets. The Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+ were going to be available to order from Friday, August 21st. Now, the company is bringing orders forwards by a few days.
If you’re not sure you want it on T-Mobile, or you want to see which carriers are selling it, when and for how much, be sure to check out our guide. All four major carriers will be offering the two new flagships from launch, each with their own benefits. Those who pre-registered in time with T-Mobile are able to claim free Netflix for a year, while Sprint offers a number of different plans which — although confusing — do add a lot of flexibility for consumers.
