    Alright, here we go again. Another S device and more speculation. The difference is this time, we're in the middle of the AT&T takeover and a change of network types is looming over us.

    Please keep most of the speculation in this thread. Cite sources for release dates when possible.





    Update:

    Source that I believe to be reliable say that a GSM Samsung Galaxy S5 will be released on Cricket Wireless on the 27th of this month. Pricing also hints that it will be around $540 dollars for the device AFTER the $50 rebate which has been going on for a bit now.

    This flagship device will allow users to utilize Cricket's new 4G LTE network powered by AT&T Wireless. For more information, stay tuned to this thread.

    NewCricket wont get it. It will be an ATT exclusive to get people to post paid vs prepaid. I see Cricket only having low end to low end of mid range phones. Att will block S5 from its cricket network.

    What in the world are you talking about? Att currently offers the S4 on AIO. There is no way in hell Att will not sell the phone and even you can purchase any of the other versions unlock for GSM carriers and use it.

    Attached can find the s5 and ban them. I also know that just because they have the s4 which is yesterday's left over garbage that they will not allow the s5 as it will be a att exclusive until the S6 is out

    Yeah pretty far fetched speculation since AT&T allows all of their phones on AIO without requiring them to be unlocked.

    but keep in mind this is not aio this is the new cricket... Very different... Besides att will also cross check cricket customers who owe att money and suspend the new cricket accounts. Also att will raise prices by getting rid of muve and replacing it with beats for a monthly payment of $10

    AT&T purchased Cricket to gain more spectrum, leverage that against other carriers, and stop the prepaid bleeding. Pretty sure they are making an effort to capture a larger chunk of prepaid users and not submarine the whole brand along with AIO at the same time.

    Well they want to get rid of deadbeats and surprise and get only the good paying prepaid people. And it's all about the spectrum and nothing about prepaid. Mark my words they will sell cricket customers off over time.

    WTF?

    OK, so now for the original question. I think at this point it will take longer to get the phone. Probably a month and a half or two will see the phone with GSM bands.

    Realistically, I think they'll give us half-price towards the purchase of a new high end phone.

    I don't think that will happen, people with feature phones will get a even trade, but for us with the middle to high end smart phones will have to pay something.

    I agree. I don't mind paying 250 or 300, I usually purchase a new phone every year at full retail price around 500 to 600. Plus if they offer the finance option then is not that bad.

    Thats what im worried about with this merger.. What happens to the people who already Fianced the S4 or similiar phones and are still paying? Do they still get an offer to trade in? :S
