CORRECTING and REPLACING T-Mobile Delivers Samsung Galaxy S® 5 for $0 Down and $1,200 Family Savings over the Life of the Other Guys’ Contracts

In the headline and second paragraph, first sentence the registered trademark on the Galaxy S 5 should be Galaxy S® 5 (instead of Galaxy® S 5). Also, insert in the fifth paragraph, first sentence: when the device launches in T-Mobile stores on April 11th.

The corrected release reads:

T-MOBILE DELIVERS SAMSUNG GALAXY S® 5 FOR $0 DOWN AND $1,200 FAMILY SAVINGS OVER THE LIFE OF THE OTHER GUYS’ CONTRACTS

T-Mobile to Begin Online and In-store Pre-orders of Samsung’s Galaxy S 5 March 24th

Un-carrier Will Free You and Your Family from Current Contracts by Paying Off Your ETFs

The Next Big Thing – as they say – is here. And T-Mobile US Inc. (NYSE:TMUS) is serving up Samsung’s latest flagship superphone as it was designed to be used and as only the Un-carrier can – unlimited and un-leashed on their nationwide 4G LTE network.

The company today announced that, starting March 24th, T-Mobile will be the only place to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S® 5 online and in-store for zero down (and 24 monthly payments) and with zero annual service contract, zero overages, zero hidden device costs, zero upgrade wait – and with the world as your network at zero extra cost. And, of course, only T-Mobile customers can experience the blazing-fast Galaxy S 5 on America’s fastest nationwide 4G LTE network.

Also, because owners of Samsung Galaxy devices are among T-Mobile’s heaviest wireless data users, the longer term savings with T-Mobile can be huge. Families with four lines could see an average of over $1,200 in savings over a two-year period compared to families with AT&T and Verizon on a two year contract. And, as always, T-Mobile will pay the early termination fees for that entire family when they trade-in their devices to make the Simple Choice and come over to a better wireless experience.

“This thing is so hot we’ve already seen over a half a million pre-registrations for the Galaxy S 5,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “That’s a lot of very smart people grabbing this opportunity to pay nothing down, save more than a grand over the life of the other guys’ contracts, and have T-Mobile pay off every penny of their family’s early termination fees. It’s a brilliant move.”

The company today also announced that customers who pre-order by March 31st can receive a special, introductory price and be among the first to get the Galaxy S 5 without waiting in line when the device launches in T-Mobile stores on April 11th – guaranteed. Also available until March 31st and in celebration of the launch, T-Mobile is offering $120 off Samsung’s Galaxy Tab® 3 with a Mobile Internet plan and 200MB free data for the life of the tablet.

To learn more or to pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S 5 at T-Mobile, visit www.t-mobile.com/nextbigthing. T-Mobile business customers can learn more at www.t-mobile.com/business/nextbigthing.

Introductory pre-order price is $0 down + $27.50/mo x 24; total $660. If you cancel wireless service, remaining balance on phone becomes due. 0% APR O.A.C for well-qualified buyers.

$1,200 claim based on financed Galaxy S 5 on Simple Choice (20 GB data) vs. 2-year contract plans with Verizon and AT&T (4 lines/20GB data) plus anticipated device down payment. Taxes and fees not included. Plan features and limitations vary.
