T-Mobile was set to go at midnight last night initially. Samsung is the one who slipped this time and was not going to be able to provide enough inventory, forcing delays on Sprint and T-Mobile. The 29th is online, May 1st is in stores (assuming there aren't any more delays).
And for the OP, since they missed their initial date, it's just the same as the S3 being available online and in stores now. Some people prefer to avoid having to go to the store and possibly waiting in line and dealing with a sales rep, and are willing to wait a few extra days for shipping. Others don't mind lines and dealing with sales reps and will put up with that stuff to get it right away in the store. As for getting it early, yes ordering online Monday is probably null at this point.
