Samsung's Galaxy S5 smartphone is out on T-Mobile for zero Money down and payments spread out over two years a press release on The Wall Street Journal's website reported.

According to multi-media capsule, consumers are also not charged for going over plan limits, obligated to contracts or secret charges

T-Mobile is also funding all charges incurred when plans consumers have with other phone companies are cancelled.

"Since we launched Contract Freedom in January, we've seen an amazing response from customers feeling trapped in their contracts at other carriers," Mike Sievert, chief marketing officer at T-Mobile said in a statement. "But people like to switch carriers at the same time they switch devices, and the Galaxy S 5 is the first major device launch of the year. It's jet fuel on an already successful fire," Sievert said in the statement.

"The Un-carrier's Contract Freedom is the only solution to the amazing pent up demand we're seeing for Samsung's Galaxy S 5," Sievert said in the statement. "Upwards of 25 million Americans will have to wait months or years if they stay stuck in contracts with the old carriers. But not if they switch to T-Mobile. Starting today at T-Mobile, they can get the Galaxy S 5 un-leashed on America's fastest nationwide 4G LTE network -- and we'll pay every penny of their contract termination fees."

Samsung Smartwatch gadgets are also available. These can handle dust if and when users go for a hike, and fend off water if they are at the beach. Consumers can also measure their heart rate.

The devices can also make calls and transmit text messages when users utilize it with a Samsung galaxy smartphone the press release reported.

The watches also handle automatic notifications, and music capabilities that allow consumers to hear songs via the smartphone.

The Gear 2 costs $299 with the Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit slated for $100 less at $199 before taxes.
