Verizon launches RCS profile with support for Galaxy S9, S9+

By Jules Wang


The state of RCS messaging in the United States is a little bleak at the moment. Sure, it's got a massive character limit that puts SMS to shame, more multimedia options than MMS, and read receipts, but availability is inconsistent and the resources it takes to set up servers are not small. Verizon had planned on bringing on its RCS profile by "early 2019," and, if you consider "before July 1" early enough for you,  it has succeeded in delivering it to the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+.

A new support page on Verizon's website details all the feature the two phones now have access to through its RCS Universal Profile. Unfortunately, only postpaid subscribers can chat through RCS with other postpaid Verizon Galaxy S9 and S9+ users, meaning that a lot of conversations will be stuck on SMS and MMS. Customers must opt in by heading to the settings page in their messaging app and tap on "Chat Settings." If it generates a menu of options, they can opt into RCS.

Mind you, Verizon also has the Pixel 3 and 3 XL as RCS-capable phones, but those use Google's Jibe servers, not Verizon's. We don't have any idea of if and when Verizon will bridge out to other servers at this time. Still, one small step for a carrier is part of one giant leap for all of the telecommunications business.

Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus

Samsung's latest flagship phones are already turning heads, but the prices for the new devices are all over the place.

A new Galaxy S9 starts at $720, while the Galaxy S9 Plus starts at $840. But depending on the carrier you buy it on, you might pay a lot more.

T-Mobile matches Samsung's price, but for a limited time. AT&T's S9 costs $70 more at $790 and the S9 Plus costs $75 more at $915. Sprint offers both phones around the same price.

Verizon and Best Buy's prices are the highest with an S9 costing $800 and the S9 Plus costing $930 -- $90 more than buying direct from Samsung.

That said, Best Buy is offering $100 off when you preorder either phone, making it one of the "best" deals: $700 for an S9 and $830 for an S9 Plus. Best Buy is also letting customers combine that $100 discount with a trade-in discount of up to $350 -- $450 off -- when you preorder the phones on Friday, March 2.

The cheapest deal so far is from Xfinity Mobile. You can get an S9 for $270 -- that's after $450 in discounts. Read on for all the details and fine print.

Check out the chart below to compare prices.

Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus prices compared

Galaxy S9 price Galaxy S9 Plus price Trade-in discount Additional discounts

Editors' note: As more deals are announced, we'll update this article.


Samsung announced the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus at Mobile World Congress on Sunday. It kept all the wonderful things about last year's S8 and S8 Plus -- like their design and size -- and improved on some of the less wonderful things, like the placement of the rear fingerprint reader. Our first look at the Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus is already online for you to read.

Preorders and launch

You will be able to preorder a Galaxy S9 or S9 Plus on Friday, March 2 at 12:01 a.m. EST from Samsung, carriers and third-party retailers. The phones go on sale two weeks later on March 16. For everything you need to know about preordering the S9, check out our story.

Trade-in: $350 off

Most, if not all, of the carriers and third-party retailers are offering up to $350 off the S9 and S9 Plus for trading in an old phone. Newer phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Apple's iPhone X and the Galaxy S8 will fetch you $350 off, while older phones such as the iPhone SE, Note 4 and Galaxy S5 will earn you $100 off. For more details on the trade-in program check out our story.


You can buy an unlocked S9 for $720 or $30 a month for 24 months from Samsung's website or the Shop Samsung Android app. An unlocked S9 Plus is $840 or $35 a month for 24 months.

Best Buy: $450 off

Living up to its name, Best Buy offers you $100 off either phone when you preorder them Friday, March 2 on an AT&T, Sprint or Verizon plan. That's on top of trade-in savings of up to $350 off. If you got the full $450 discount, an S9 would "cost" $350 and an S9 Plus would be $480.

If you miss the preorder Friday deal, you can save up to $100 off either phone when you preorder them starting Saturday, March 3.

You can also buy an unlocked S9 or S9 Plus from Best Buy on March 16 and still get the trade-in deal. Best Buy offers 24-month financing when using a My Best Buy Credit Card.


For a limited time, T-Mobile will sell the S9 for $720 or $30 a month for 24 months and the S9 Plus for $840 or $30 a month for 24 months after a $120 downpayment.

In the fine print, it doesn't state when exactly the "limited time" offer expires, but it does express that this discount price "may not be combined with some offers or discounts."

If you trade in an old phone, T-Mobile will give you 24 monthly bill credits totaling up to $360.


A Galaxy S9 will cost you $33.33 per month for 24 months ($800) at Verizon. The S9 Plus will be $39 per month for 24 months ($930).

You can get up to $350 off by trading in your old phone in the form of a bill credit.

If you're buying an S9 or S9 Plus and porting in a new line of service, Verizon will give you a $150 prepaid MasterCard.

You can also get discounts on Samsung tablets and Gear S3 smartwatches when you buy an S9 or S9 Plus on a two-year contract. Verizon Up customers with an active Samsung phone will receive an offer for $10 off select Samsung accessories.


AT&T offers a $150 bill credit when you bring a line from another carrier. This is in addition to the trade-in offer of up to $350 in bill credits (minimum of $200 trade-in credit on any phone with at least a $20 value).

What's interesting is the language around the trade-in's: Guaranteed minimum $350 when trading in a Samsung Galaxy S8 family or Note 8, iPhone 8, 8 Plus or iPhone X; LG V30; Google Pixel 2/XL Phone. So there could be a chance you get more than $350 for trading one of those phones in.

If you're an AT&T Next customer, you can buy an S9 for $26 for 30 months -- $790 total. The S9 Plus is $30 over 30 months -- that's $915. No word if the price is different for buying either phone outright.


You can lease an S9 from Sprint for just $13.55 a month or an S9 Plus for $18.55 a month on an 18-month Sprint Flex plan. That price includes a $150 Visa gift card and the full $350 trade-in -- which means you're trading in a Galaxy S8/S8 Plus or an iPhone X, 8/8 Plus.

Xfinity Mobile: S9 is $270

Comcast aka Xfinity Mobile guarantees at least $200 for trade-ins. No word yet on what the highest trade-in for a phone is. To sweeten that deal they are also giving away a $250 prepaid Visa card when you purchase a Samsung phone with a new line of service. The gift card deal expires March 22, 2018.

This means you can pick up an S9 for $270 or an S9 Plus for $390 after trade-in and the promo gift card is factored in.

US Cellular

The Galaxy S9 from US Cellular is $759 or $25.30 a month on a 30 month plan. The S9 Plus is $920 or $30.65 a month on a 30 month plan.

You can get $250 in bill credits or you can get up to $350 in bill credits when you trade-in a phone.


You will be able to preorder the S9 and S9 Plus from Costco, but beyond that there's no specifics on prices or discounts.


You can get the S9 and S9 Plus on an AT&T, Sprint or Verizon carrier plan from Target. Like Costco, there's no word on price.

Samsung just announced the Galaxy S9, and now we’re getting details on how much retailers and wireless carriers are going to charge for it. The cheapest way to get the phone (without a trade-in) is through Samsung itself. But pricing gets surprisingly more complicated when you bring in wireless carriers: AT&T and Verizon are charging extra, but they’re also offering trade-in discounts that can more than offset the price increase.

Here are the details we have so far — we’ll be updating with more info as it comes out. In all cases, preorders start March 2nd and sales start March 16th.


Buy it outright: S9 for $719.99; S9 Plus for $839.99.

Monthly installments: $30 per month for 24 months for the S9; $35 per month for 24 months for the S9 Plus. Prices are a cent more expensive than buying it outright.

Trade in: $50 to $350 off when you trade in a smartphone. You’ll have to trade in last year’s Galaxy S8 or an iPhone 8 or X to get the full $350 (which isn’t a great deal), but you can still get $300 off for an S7 or iPhone 7, and $150 off for an S6 or iPhone 6. The full list of phones is here. One nice bonus — it looks like Samsung will let you get the discount outright, rather than divvying it up by monthly payments.


Buy it outright: S9 for $790.20; S9 Plus for $915.

Monthly installments: $26.34 per month for 30 months for the S9; $30.50 per month for 30 months for the S9 Plus. Those come to the same prices as buying the phone outright.


Buy it outright: $800 for the S9; $930 for the S9 Plus.

Monthly installments: $33.33 per month for 24 months for the S9; $38.74 per month for 24 months for the S9 Plus. You save a few cents paying this way instead of buying outright.

Trade-in: $100 to $350 off the S9 or S9 Plus when you buy it on an installment plan and trade-in a working phone in good condition. In order to get the $350, you have to trade in a Galaxy S8, iPhone 8, or newer (so realistically, only very serious Samsung fans will take this trade-in offer). Other flagships from last year fetch $300; and you can get $200 off for two to three year old phones. Phones like the iPhone SE and Galaxy S5 get $100. The trade-in value is broken up across the life of your payments, so you’re still looking at two years of bills.


Monthly installments: $30 per month for 24 months for the S9; same for the S9 Plus, but it also requires a $120 down payment. That’s $720 in total for the S9; $840 for the S9 Plus.

Trade-in: Up to $360 off an S9 or S9 Plus when purchased on an installment plan. You can trade in flagship phones as far back as an iPhone 6S or a Galaxy S7 and get $360 off. T-Mobile will also give $200 off for trade-ins of flagships as far back as the iPhone 5S and Galaxy S4. The discount comes with bill credits, so you’ll have to stay with T-Mobile to get the full offer.


Monthly installments: $33 per month for 24 months for the S9; $38 per month for 24 months for the S9 Plus. That comes to $792 and $912, which is more expensive than through Samsung.

Trade-in: Sprintsays it’s offering up to $350 off with an eligible trade in, but it doesn’t list which phones are eligible. It appears you’ll get the discount spread across your monthly payments for the phone.

Best Buy

Promo: $100 off if you preorder through Verizon, AT&T, or Sprint on March 2nd only. After that, Best Buy is advertising a discount of “up to $100,” which suggests different carriers might receive different discounts.

Trade-in: $150 to $350 off when trading in specific smartphones. You’ll get the most for last year’s top Apple and Samsung phones, and you’ll get the least for the iPhone 6 an Galaxy S6.

Xfinity Mobile

Buy it outright: $719.99 for the S9; $839.99 for the S9 Plus.

Monthly installments: $30 per month for 24 months for the S9; $35 per month for 24 months for the S9 Plus. Prices are a cent more expensive than buying it outright. (They’re also the same as what you’ll get from Samsung itself.)

Trade-in: $200 to $350 off when you trade in an eligible phone. One of the nice perks here is that you can get this discount even if you choose to buy the phone outright — you’re not required to take it month by month on an installment plan that keeps you locked in.

S9 verizon

During this time, she turned me into a real slave who not only crawls on her knees at her feet, but also fulfills any of her whims, including erotic ones. No, we didn't have sex and other things, my mother doesn't go beyond this dangerous line, but it's easy to make me jerk off in front. Of her. At first it made me very nervous and worried, but now I do it like any other of my duties, without hesitation.

Fucked. Ah, slut, the bitch was fucking there, substituting her cunt for the dicks of the tractor drivers. Igor walked away from the woman and ordered. To pull up her skirt.
