Update on Amazon... when I placed order on Monday it said backordered on 1-9-13... well got an email that it shipped today and will be here Tuesday. Not much of a backorder at all in the end. This was the $79 Verizon upgrade 16GB S3.
It is the blue being shipped to me. Kinda wanted the 32GB but for the extra $95 just couldn't justify it. Now I see there is a free unlock code... any advantage to doing this if I plan on sticking with Verizon?
I think 16 GB is just fine, you can always expand memory with an microSD card (which is why I also will be getting a 16GB version). I don't see how the unlock code would be helpful. My understanding is that if you are in good standing with Verizon, they will give you the unlock code on request.
What I am looking for is the update (which was promised to be delivered before the end of summer!) to enable me to use a local SIM card in Germany - they need to update the phone in order to enable Verizon customers to use the phone as a World phone. This already works on all of the major carriers in the US, and in the international version. Leave it to Verizon to drag its feet :-(
I am now eligible for an upgrade. I have an iPhone 4 and want to get the Galaxy S3. I could have sworn that I saw Best Buy advertise a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Galaxy S3 – Verizon included. I saw this Saturday morning on their website. I went to Best Buy Saturday and the girl working said she thought it was only for Friday. I told her to check and she was doing it. Then her coworker said that to come back the next day (Sunday) because it was going to be $100 – no gift card. This was better for me because I really have no need for a $100 Best Buy gift card. I came back the next day and there was a different person. I said I wanted the Galaxy S3 Verizon for $100 and he said the $100 price was only for Sprint and AT&T. I was pretty upset and told him that I could have gotten the gift card yesterday had I known this. He said the $100 gift was also only for Sprint and AT&T. I think he was lying to me. Well Best Buy now has it for $149.99 but I don’t know if I should buy it or wait? Do you think more deals will come out?
i got lucky. i couldnt get through when it was black friday. and someone was supposed to push my upgrade through... no one didnt i wrote a letter telling them my situation and how disappointed i was and that others were offer for 99 cents and i could have made a more informed business decision if they were to say no they couldnt. i got a call today saying the upgrade was pushed through and they discounted the two S3 phones white and i will be getting them next day. I wasnt complaining just wanted to point out how disappointed i was because this happened twice with this sprint company. I kinda felt like they didnt want to extend my contract and keep me another two years. So I concluded the letter, by the time you read this i will most likely be with att or verizon wireless. Cheers. I was appalled with the service they provided. in the end i still got the S3 white for 99 cents with no activation waived early upgrade and next day aired. worth the wait, for a simple professionally stated courtesy letter sent to corporate.
