I bought my S3 from a mall kiosk authorized Verizon dealer. I thought at the time it was a Verizon Corporate outlet because of the huge Verizon sign and the fact that they didn't carry anything that wasn't Verizon.
I had problems with it and took it to a Verizon store and was told that they couldn't help me or exchange the phone, that I would have to take it back to where I bought it from.
Unfortunately I was out of town at the time and had to wait until I returned home. Once I was home (and still in the 14 day return period) I was able to return the phone.
I'll never deal with an "Authorized Verizon Store" again.
