As for pricing, T-Mobile customers will be paying a little bit more than customers on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. T-Mobile will be charging $629.99 off-contract for the Galaxy S III, $229.99 on a Value data plan and $279.99 on a Classic data plan.

So, those looking to pick up the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III need to prepare to shell out more money, even if the phone is HSPA+ and not 4G LTE in nature.

It appears that T-Mobile has also been affected by the shortages that Samsung has faced due to the popularity of the Galaxy S III. Sprint has already had to delay parts of its Samsung Galaxy S III launch and the Galaxy S III launch in Canada was pushed back a week.
