Sprint announces pricing and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4
We have known the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 was coming to all major US carriers eventually. October was the pegged timeline for it to hit. Now Sprint is actively offering up their release date as October 17th. Along side the date they have also kicked out the pricing details. If you rock out with the Sprint Easy Pay the Note 4 will be $0 + tax and 24 monthly payments of $30. Total price, $720.
If you are looking to go that route with Sprint you can get a pre-order in on Friday September 26th.
To help out with the launch Sprint is also extending the Sprint Family Share Pack promotion. That promo offers families with up to 10 lines up to 20GB of shared data alongside unlimited talk and text for $100 a month through 2015. After the new year you can expect a $15 per month per line access charge to be tossed on.
The release doesn’t make mention of the Note Edge or the Gear VR, but we know Sprint will be carrying both as well. Any Sprint customers, or would be customers, aiming their sights on the Galaxy Note 4, or are you gonna hold out until the Note Edge gets a confirmed date?

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Sept. 18, 2014 – The innovative Samsung Galaxy Note® 4 arrives at Sprint on Friday, Oct. 17, with the benefits of the high-speed data capabilities of Sprint Spark™ and the best rate plan options of any national carrier for individuals, couples and families.

The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan1 beats all national carriers, providing significant savings over competitor plans. The Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan saves customers $20 a month compared to T-Mobile’s $80 unlimited plan2. AT&T and Verizon Wireless don’t even offer unlimited data plans. With the Sprint $60 Unlimited Plan, consumers can talk, text and use data, knowing that their market-leading plan is one low price of $60 without surprising overage charges. (All prices exclude taxes and surcharges.)
Sprint also extended its limited-time offer for the Sprint Family Share Pack. A family with up to 10 lines, can get 20GB of shared data and unlimited talk and text for only $100 a month through 2015.3 For a family of four, that’s a savings of $60 per month versus AT&T’s and Verizon’s current pricing through 2015; double the data of AT&T and Verizon; and double the high-speed data of T-Mobile.

Customers can also get double the high-speed data and up to $60 a month savings for families with the Sprint Family Share Pack,”said David Owens, senior vice president-Product Development, Sprint. “Sprint Spark unlocks powerful capabilities of Galaxy Note 4 and the beauty of its dynamic display, and these innovative features shouldn’t be limited by expensive data plans.”
