T-Mobile has confirmed the device for arrival with a splash page on its website. Samsung says that T-Mobile will be apart of the U.S. carriers getting the Galaxy S4 at some point in the second quarter of this year which consists of April, May and June. Rumors have suggested that the device would land in the U.S. in May or June but thus far, that is no confirmed.

U.S. Cellular has confirmed through Twitter that it will be carrying the Galaxy S4 on its 4G LTE network in the second quarter and that details and presale information will come at a later date. In addition, Samsung has confirmed the device for Cricket Wireless, a pre-paid carrier that has in the past carried high-end devices like the iPhone 5.

The Galaxy S4 is official and will be heading to several U.S. carriers.

None of the carriers have revealed a specific date so it could be a few weeks or months before we see the release dates confirmed on all of these U.S. carriers.

Samsung says that the global roll out for the Galaxy S4 will commence at the end of April and typically, U.S. carriers are further behind their competitors in terms of release dates.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is finally official and it sports a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, Android Jelly Bean, smart software from Samsung and a design that is reminiscent of the Galaxy S3.

    It’s total BS that the US probably has to wait until June to get this (with a mid-March event). Why is Apple still the only one that gets this right!!? This should be on US store shelves in early April. It’s just unbelievable that Samsung can’t properly launch a phone! Shameful BS!

    That has nothing to do with Samsung and everything to do with the US Carriers. They will all want their own branding on the phones because they will be subsidized sales. The European markets do not do that. You pay full price for the phone from Samsung (usually around $700 or more USD equivalent) and then put your own SIM card into it. They phones are not locked down to a specific network.

    These phones aren’t locked….The carriers are just waiting to fill it up with bloatware and other nonsense to sell it to us.
