    Galaxy S4 Unlocked?

    So as probably everyone knows, the galaxy S4 was announced yesterday. I know it'll come available unlocked, but my only concern is it would be the international version, which means no LTE on AT&T. I plan on eventually going to AT&T so, it would be awesome to buy the AT&T version of the S4, use it on straight talk now and eventually migrate over. I always wondered, is it possible to just go to AT&T and buy the phone without a plan or anything? The only thing I like about apple is I can go to their Apple store, buy the unlocked phone AND a protection plan. What about Samsung? I don't think they have something equivalent to Apple care? I guess I just want the AT&T version with an extra warranty, how is that possible? How was it possible with the S3. Since we don't even have the price of the S4

    Sure, you can walk into a store and buy the phone at full price. Best Buy will allow this too. However, you will get NO warranty from AT&T since you wouldn't be a customer with them (if you're just buying the phone at full price to use with Straight Talk.) However, you would get the 1 year manufacture warranty from Samsung. You'd have to deal directly with them.

    However, if you do buy it directly at Best Buy, you could purchase Best Buy's insurance plan for $10 a month (or whatever it costs.) Be careful though, simply because I've read horror stories online about Best Buy's coverage.
