Sprint charges $250 for the base model, with 16 gigabytes of memory, or $150 if the buyer is coming over from another carrier. A two-year contract is required.

T-Mobile USA is charging $150 up-front and $20 per month for two years under its new installment plans. Those plans replace two-year service contracts that most carriers require. T-Mobile has abandoned them in favor of cheaper month-to-month plans.

AT&T Inc. said it was planning to start selling the S4 in stores on Saturday as scheduled. The company already has started taking advance orders and plans to ship the phones starting next Tuesday. AT&T is charging $200 for the base model, with a two-year contract.

Verizon Wireless has said it will sell the phone, but hasn't announced a release date or price. Smaller carriers U.S. Cellular, Leap Wireless' Cricket and C Spire will also sell the phone.
