People can buy a completely new Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus from Samsung itself or the wireless carriers such as Verizon, AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile. Samsung sells its Galaxy S9 unlocked, while the carriers sell it with a payment plan. Yes, they no longer have 2-years contracts but the device payment plans, which you can pay off at any time in predetermined months. Now, let's see the details below:


Verizon is selling the Galaxy S9 for $799.99 and you need to pay $33.33 per month for the 24-month installment plan. The Galaxy S9+ is $929.99 and you need to pay $38.74 per month for 24 months.


AT&T is selling the Galaxy S9 for $789.99 and the S9+ for $914.99. Consumers can buy the Samsung Galaxy S9 for $26.34 or the Samsung Galaxy S9+ for $30.50 over 30 months. Or you can also choose a 24-month installment plan, which requires $32.92 per month for the S9, or $38.13 for the S9+.


Sprint's pricing for Galaxy S9 and S9+ is quite similar to Verizon and AT&T's. The Galaxy S9 from Sprint is available for either $33.00 per month for 24 months or $792 if you pay the full price upfront, and the Galaxy S9+ from Sprint will be either $38.00 per month for 24 months or $912 if you pay the full price upfront.


T-Mobile is offering Galaxy S9 for $720, or $30 per month for 24 months on its installment plan. The Galaxy S9+ will cost $840, or the same $30 per month for 24 months but will require you to pay $120 upfront.


The wireless carriers won't be the only ones you can get the new S9 phones from. Samsung is selling the Galaxy S9 unlocked for $720, and the Galaxy S9+ is going for $840.




There are few things you should know about before you can make your best decision:
1. An unlocked model offered by the Samsung directly won't tie to a specific carrier. That is to say, you can switch carriers whenever you want.
2. If you purchase the unlocked S9, you won't get your carrier's branding on the back of the phone or get the extra apps from your carrier.
3. If you purchase the Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus from the carriers, you can enjoy the monthly installment with 0% APR.


Bottom Line:


If you want to get a S9/S9+ with a monthly installment plan and are totally fine with the limits of a locked phone, you can buy from T-Mobile, which is the only major carrier that's selling the new Galaxy S9 and S9+ at the same price as Samsung directly. However, if you prefer an unlocked phone to use it on any carrier and internationally, you're usually better off buying it directly from Samsung.
