New Device pricing/Price reduction to older devices

I looked at the MTS website (Wireless) today, and see MTS has released the new Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices.  This is fantastic to see new devices released right at their official release date!  MTS has definitely been getting better at being able to do this.

My question comes though, I see the pricing (based off the $55 plan subsidy cost).  
I see the new pricing is $249.99 with contract for the S6 and $349.99 for the S6 Edge.  These are true to what I've read (the $100 upcharge for the Edge, which is fine). The S6 is at $249.99.   Yet the Galaxy S5 still remains at the $199.99 price it was before?  Is there no reduction in pricing for that device now that the newer model is out?  It wouldn't be much incentive to get someone to buy an S5 when the pricing is so close to the S6 pricing. 

My question also goes that now that the Note 4 is reasonably older, no deduction in price on this device either on subsidy?  It is more expensive than the S6, and a much older device!  And yet they both carry similar MSRP outright prices! Outright price on the S6 is actually $774.99, and the Note 4 is $749.99 - cheaper!

Hi Justin,
We were excited to introduce the new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge last week. With the introduction of these two new devices we will continue to evaluate the pricing for all the devices in our Samsung portfolio of products. As prices change frequently, please check out often for any upcoming changes to the price of these two Samsung devices.
