T-Mobile is still handing out goodies to its customers and has announced that it will begin selling Samsung’s (005930) highly anticipated Galaxy S4 smartphone starting on May 1st for just $99 up front along with subsequent payments of $20 per month over a 24-month period. The aggressive up-front pricing for high-end smartphones such as the Galaxy S4 and the iPhone 5 is part of T-Mobile’s campaign to eliminate service contracts and brand itself as the less restrictive “un-carrier.” In addition to the Galaxy S4, T-Mobile also said it would be selling the Galaxy Note II, the HTC (2498) One and the BlackBerry (BBRY) Z10 for $99 up front and 20 months of $20 monthly payments.
