Best phone plans for the Samsung Galaxy S6

The Galaxy S6 is an important phone for Samsung after the S5 didn’t exactly set the smartphone world on fire. The S6 is a great device, but do you have to pay big money for it? Here are the best phone plans for the Galaxy S6.

All prices are in US dollars.

T-Mobile

If you’re buying the phone outright, T-Mobile currently charges $629.76 / $679.92 / $759.99 for the 32, 64 and 128 GB models respectively, although you’ll also need a $15 SIM starter kit. If you’d rather not pay anything, $76.24 per month over two years gives you 1 GB of LTE data, although once again you’ll need to fork out for that SIM kit.

Breakdown: For 1 GB LTE data per month you’ll pay $15 up front and $76.24 per month.

Total: $1844.76

Verizon Wireless

Verizon sticks with the RRP for the Galaxy S6, with prices of $599.99, $699.99 and $799.99 for the 32, 64 and 128 GB versions respectively. However, if you’re willing to commit to a two year contract the price drops to $199.99 / $299.99 / $399.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. If you go for the 1 GB of shareable data with unlimited talk and texting that’s $70 per month for two years.

Breakdown: For 1 GB per month over two years you’ll pay $199.99 for the phone (32 GB version) after rebate, plus $70 per month

Total: $1879.99

AT&T

AT&T is a little on the pricey side if you’re buying the S6 outright: it charges $684.99 for the 32 GB model, $784.99 for 64 GB and $884.99 for 128 GB. Those prices drop to $199.99 / $299.99 / $399.99 on a two year contract, or you can get the phone for free if you subscribe to an AT&T Next plan. That has no activation charge and much lower smartphone access charges, so it works out just under $3 cheaper for a 32 GB S6 over two years compared to the contract price - although that example is on a 10 GB plan, so you’re shelling out nearly $140 a month plus tax.

Breakdown: For 1 GB per month over two years you’ll pay $199.99 for the phone and $65 per month.

Total: $1759.99

Sprint

Like AT&T, Sprint has several ways to buy the S6: full retail at $647 / $768 / $864, on a two-year contract for $199.99 / $299.99 / $399.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, or via its two-year leasing and two-year Easy Pay options that give you the phone with no money down. If you go for the lease option, you’ll pay $20 per month over two years for the 32 GB model over and above your plan costs, and if you go for Easy Pay you’ll pay $27 per month. The difference between the two is that when you lease, you don’t own the phone.

Breakdown: For 1 GB per month over two years you’ll pay $199.99 and $60 per month.

Total: $1639.99

    Wow people pay that much for a gig of data? Glad I still have the Sprint unlimited plan we got with the old Evo. Perfect for my new GS6.
