However, the Korean giant plans to launch Galaxy Note 3 in Japan and October for US and Japan Though Galaxy Note 3 is yet to arrive in US, most of the leading carriers in US have already mentioned their plans for the upcoming phablet.
AT&T Galaxy Note 3
If you prefer AT&T’s network, you can go to their website and place a Samsung Galaxy Note pre-order. AT&T is not offering 64GB version of the device. As we thought, AT&T is offering the 32GB variant of Galaxy Note 3 for $300 on a two-year contract. Another deal AT&T is offering is to pay $35 for the 20 months for two years. Lastly, the device can be purchased for one year price of $550.
AT&T will also be offering Galaxy Gear smartwatch in the forthcoming weeks. The Note 3 is going to be made available for shipment from October 1.

T-Mobile will start selling the phablet from October 2. What’s unique about T-Mobile is that the phablet will be available for purchase without a contract. Buyers will have to pay down payment of $199 through the new T-Mobile JUMP plan. T-Mobile has not started with pre-orders but it has got a dedicated sign up page to get details on Note 3.
As far as Galaxy Gear is concerned, it will be up for sale from Oct 2 for $299. There are no options to get it through JUMP plan.

The 32GB model will be the variant that will be made available first whereas 64GB may arrive later on but definitely not now.

U.S Cellular will be selling the Note 3 in October. However, they have not revealed anything on the plans and pre-order. So, potential buyers who are eagerly waiting to purchase the Note 3 may consider getting it from a different carrier.
