Starting tomorrow, nearly everyone will be able to preorder the highly anticipated Galaxy S6. I say “nearly everyone” because Verizon has revealed that it will not begin offering preorders to its customers until April 1st, 5 days after preorders begin at most of the other major service providers in the United States.

Verizon announced this slight delay via a tweet on Thursday afternoon. The provider has also yet to provide pricing information.

While Verizon fumbles with its release strategy, Sprint is taking full advantage of the day by announcing that any new or existing customers who sign up for Sprint Unlimited Plus will be able to lease the Galaxy S6 for free when it launches next month.

Here’s everything Sprint Unlimited Plus includes for $80 a month:

  1. Samsung Galaxy S6 with 32GB of memory for free after $20/mo. credit with 24 mo. lease
  2. Unlimited talk, text and data all while on the Sprint network so you can enjoy this feature-rich phone without worrying about overage fees
  3. International Value Roaming (Telefonica countries)
  4. Annual upgrades

For $5 more a month you can upgrade to a 64GB Galaxy S6 and for $10 more per month you can go with the 128GB Galaxy S6. You can also get a Galaxy S6 edge with a 24-month lease for $5 after a $20 per month lease credit. Paired with the Sprint Unlimited Plus Plan, this comes to a total of $85 per month.

If you don’t want to sign up for a contract or lease a device, Boost Mobile will offer a 32 GB Galaxy S6 in Black Sapphire beginning Friday, April 10, for $649.99.
