    What's cheapest place to buy Samsung Galaxy S4 off contract??

    I'm an AT&T customer.
    I don't care if it's online or at a store.

    Craig's list. I'm sure some folks will be selling off their upgrades.

    Swappa has a galaxy s4 unlocked international version for $810, if that's 'cheap' for you.

    EDIT: Att S4's on swappa are very low. About $500 is the lowest price right now. Check it out.

    Thanks, but I don't want to purchase it from a person.

    Also, I don't want the international version.

    I haven't seen it cheaper than buying it directly from AT&T for $639 (I assuming you want it for use on AT&T and you didn't specific it needed to be unlocked).

    If you looking for brand new phone off contract, get the Nexus 4 @ $349 direct from Google.

    Sure the Galaxy S4 is better than the Nexus 4, bit no way near twice better phone, and for $700 off contract, that's double the price of the Nexus 4, that's crazy.

    The N4 and S4 will easily do everything you need the same,, both will make phone calls, both will send and receive texts/e-mails, both phones do GPS/Nav, both phones surf the net, both phones have nice large screens, etc...

    Better yet, the Nexus 4 will get the newest Android release right away, good luck your S4 getting that anytime soon.

    Bottom line, I just can't justify a 100% increase in price over the Nexus, what are you really getting that's worth double the price ? LTE ? Uh, OK...

    I think a human will be involved no matter where you buy from.
    For cheapest pricing, pick up the phone and call all carriers who have that phone.

    Best buy will price match the att online store price of $639....oddly enough att in store will not match their online prices.

    Check Amazon, they usually do reasonable prices for unlocked phones. Not sure what it's going for in the US but Amazon UK is currently selling the S4 for £439 (through a third party seller) which is around $680.

    Okay, smart aleck.

    I meant I do not want to buy it from just a random person selling it.
    I want to buy it from a store.

    And it looks like I'll have to buy it from AT&T or Best Buy with a price match..
