The day is here. AT&T and Sprint customers who have been raring to get their hands on the new best big phone out there will now have their chance. Both carriers are launching the Galaxy Note 3 today. If you're the type who prefers to buy their phone online, head over to either website, as both carriers are now shipping the device.
The Galaxy Note 3 will set AT&T customers back $299.99 with a two-year contract, which is less than the $349.99 Sprint is charging its customers upfront for the same phone. This doesn't matter too much though, as it's the contract that will tug at your wallet the hardest. If you don't want to be shackled down for too long, AT&T is willing to part with the Note 3 for $549.99 with a one-year contract or $724.99 if you want to go month-to-month. The phone is available in both black and white.
If you want to save a few bucks, Amazon has the same phone available on a two-year contract for ten dollars less. Though at $749.99 off-contract, Amazon's price is higher for anyone who would prefer to go month-to-month.
While Sprint customers can get the Note 3 for $349.99 with a two-year contract, that may not be the number they show you when you first head over to the site. The carrier has an offer going on right now where they will discount $100.00 for new customers who port over their existing numbers.
If you are a new customer who wants to keep their current number - congrats, you just saved $100. Everyone else, don't let the number fool you. Sprint is asking more for the Note 3 upfront than any other major carrier in the US.
