To get the tablet, you will need a data plan for it and you will be asked to affix your signature on a two-year pact.
"Samsung Galaxy S 5 is exactly the type of device Sprint Spark and Sprint Framily were designed for. Galaxy S 5 customers will be able to do more than ever with their smartphone, and they will appreciate the ability to use all three bands of 4G LTE wireless network spectrum available on the Sprint network for an enhanced LTE experience and won’t want to wait for a slow network to catch up while they’re enjoying the incredible features of this exciting device."
