AT&T Galaxy S4 Ship Date Confirmed for April 23rd

While we are still waiting on a Samsung Galaxy S4 release date on AT&T, the carrier has shifted the pre-order date up from April 30th to April 23rd, a sign that a release date may come closer to the rumored April 24th release date that we’ve heard about.

Earlier today, we told you that the AT&T Galaxy S4 release date still was still up in the air despite the carrier offering a pre-order for the Samsung Galaxy S4. However, we have seen in progress in the form of an advanced shipping date that has moved from April 30th to April 23rd, seven days earlier than was originally thought.

AT&T now says it will ship the Galaxy S4 on April 23rd.

Still, the carrier has not released a specific release date for the Galaxy S4 which means we still aren’t sure if April 23rd is its release date or if it will be coming at a later date. Remember, we’ve heard April 24th and April 26th both rumored and we’ve seen AT&T customer service representatives say that the device will be coming out on May 3rd in stores.

Often, in-store release dates can be different from online release dates which means that AT&T could potentially offer the Galaxy S4 online starting April 23rd or April 24th and then release the phone in-stores later. At this point though it’s not clear.

What is clear is that the AT&T Galaxy S4 will be shipping to those who pre-ordered starting on April 23rd. Also of note is that AT&T continues to only sell the 16GB model, opting not to sell the confirmed 32GB Galaxy S4 at this time. It’s unclear when or if the 32GB Galaxy S4 will make an appearance but the carrier previously said that it would sell it for $250 on-contract.

The AT&T Galaxy S4, if it arrives on April 23rd, will beat the other carriers to the punch. If it arrives on April 24th, it will join the T-Mobile Galaxy S4 on shelves. Sprint will be releasing the Galaxy S4 on April 27th while U.S. Cellular and Verizon remain without any specific Galaxy S4 release dates.

    For those who are interested, I was just on the phone with AT&T for 30 minutes and according to their rep. from samsung, they will not be doing preorders for the 32gb and 64gb models, but they will be available to order starting April 30th. The rep. I spoke with had no pricing information on the 64gb model.

    I had to order my phone over the phone because I’m a US Cellular business customer & the guy told me it would ship on the 23rd & be rush delivered.

    AT&T Website says April 30th. I already pre-ordered mine the other day through Costco. Best deal out there since they waive the $36 activation fee and you get free accessories. That Walmart deal is BS, it ends up costing you $229 after the activation fee and the stupid gift card you have to buy. Either the 23rd or 30th, I’ll be just happy to get off my crummy HTC Sensationless on T-Mobile!!
