Most carriers now offer 4G tablets that you can add as a second line to your phone service. This is great for those that are on the go and need the cellular function on tablets. But unfortunately most carriers do not offer subsidies on tablets the same as phones. Now that seems silly since getting a tablet also required a 2-year contact. In an effort to win more customers, Sprint is now offering the Galaxy Tab 3 for a mere $50 as a new service or a second line. That’s a good deal if you really need a tablet on the go and don’t want to break the bank. You can checkout the full details below.
