T-Mobile is one of the four major US carriers that will sell the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, the "Uncarrier" will start offering the device from April 10th. When you land your brand new Samsung flagship that day, you won't be able to fire it up straight away as you will have to pull an over the air update first.

Don't worry though, it's worth it because T-Mobile says the upgrade brings with it performance and stability improvements, new features, and of course the good old bug fixes. The build should be showing up with the number UVU1AOCG and will weigh in at 179MB. Not the biggest of files then, so with a decent Wi-Fi signal you should bring it in pretty quickly.

The update has been issued by Samsung and T-Mobile and the companies say it prevents any last minute bugs out of the box. At the moment no other carriers have announced a similar upgrade, bit we wouldn't be surprised if Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint do something similar.

Pre-orders are being taken for T-Mobile for both handsets. The Galaxy S6 priced at $679.92 (32GB), $759.99 (64GB), and $859.99 (128GB). Good standing subscribers can get the 32GB version for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.33. The 64 and 128GB versions will be available for 24 monthly installments of $27.50 after a $99.99 down payment is made for the 64GB model and a $199.99 upfront payment is made for the 128GB model.

The Samsung Galaxy S6 edge will of course be pricier and will cost you $779.76, $859.83 and $959.83 for the 32GB, 64GB and 128GB models. The 32GB Galaxy S6 edge is priced at $0 down for well-qualified buyers, with 24 monthly installments of $32.49. The 64GB model is $99.99 with 24 monthly installments of $31.66. The 128GB version of the Galaxy S6 edge will cost you $199.99 upfront with 24 monthly payments of $31.66.
