And it&rsquo;s only fitting that T-Mobile is first to show some generosity to their customers after helping it finally <a href="http://www.techspot.com/news/61635-tmobile-unseats-sprint-third-largest-carrier.html">surpass Sprint in the US carrier ranks</a>.</p> <p>Previously available starting at $680 outright, the non-edgy <a href="http://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phones/samsung-galaxy-s-6.html">GS6 now costs $580</a> on the Magenta carrier. That&rsquo;s of course with 32GB internal storage, which may not be enough for power users given the lack of a microSD expansion slot.</p> <p>Luckily, the 64GB and 128GB variants are also getting price cuts, the former by 100 bucks and the latter by a cool $200. That actually makes the mid-tier configuration a very impractical purchase, as both the 64GB and 128GB models go for $660 a pop, free of contractual obligations.</p> <p>Meanwhile, the <a href="http://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phones/samsung-galaxy-s-6-edge.html#Black-Sapphire">dual-curved S6 Edge</a> remains an extravagant buy even after price trims, setting you back $680, $760 and&hellip; $760 respectively in 32, 64 and 128GB configurations. Why does the &ldquo;Uncarrier&rdquo; still sell 64GB variants again?</p> <p>Hard to say, but it&rsquo;s good to keep in mind T-Mobile offers very convenient installments plans for folks with tighter cash flows. As such, the 128GB Galaxy S6 can be yours sans upfront charges or interest fees by coughing up $27.50 a month for two years, whereas the S6 Edge starts at $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $28.33 for the 32GB model or $31.67 for the 128GB variant.</p> <p>Verizon, AT&amp;T, Sprint: the ball is in your court now. Amazon&rsquo;s too, although over there, you can already score an <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-SM-G920F-Unlocked-Cellphone-International/dp/B00U8KT62A/ref=sr_1_1?s=wireless&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1438847128&amp;sr=1-1&amp;keywords=galaxy+s6">unlocked S6 for $585</a>.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61658-tmobile-samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-discounts.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='http://www.techspot.com/news/61658-tmobile-samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-discounts.html'>http://www.techspot.com/news/61658-tmobile-samsung-galaxy-s6-edge-discounts.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]
