Is there any guarantee that you'll get it as soon as they get them because you put the deposit down? I mean, let's be honest, it's not like there's going to be a riot for people to get the phone, with the phone selling out within hours of it going on sale...Putting your name down is probably already MORE than enough. A deposit? Overkill.

But metro is known for getting limited supplies. Not sure if the same would prove true here.

Your gonna buy it anyway so it wouldn't hurt to put a deposit down. It's like going to see a movie you know is going to be sold out, so you buy your tickets ahead of time.

It offers more than just root, it offers everything. Ideas of downloading 10 different things, you download one.

I swear by it.

That's true, but in this case, you know beforehand, for whatever reason, that the tickets will be sold out. However, I'm almost certain that even if you don't put your name down at all, you'll be able to just go to any store that gets one whenever they get them this weekend and just pick it up. Remember, 90% if not more of metro's users want a phone that calls and texts (Maybe) for cheap. They couldn't care less if it's the latest thing. They won't get sold out immediately, they're probably going to receive enough stock in each store to be able to sell to at least 15 people.

Lol. Hell no. I told you, it could have already been out. My decision was solidified after getting to fully explore an s3. Great phone, just not for me.

i have now become a user of straight talk thus leaving metro behind after 5 years. Enjoying service where i didn't have it before and 4 times the data speeds.

Wasn't sure until i actually started on ST if i would like it, but it's what works for me and that's all that matters.

I mentioned in the other thread that I'd called the nearest Corp store in Gainesville and they said maybe today but most likely this weekend.

I just called the nicest, newest authorized dealer nearby and without missing a beat they said they'd have them in the store for sale the 22nd (Monday).

This strengthens my opinion that it's the Corp stores that will get them today and this weekend.

i live in miami and i passed by the corp store on 117 and sunset on my way home from work, guy said they're 'supposed' to be able to sell them tmrw but they havent arrived so he doesnt know how thats gonna happen, he said theyre expecting them in anytime today or tmrw so they could start selling them
SO ITS FAIR TO SAY THAT
THE PHONE WILL BE FORSALE AT STORES AND ONLINE ON MONDAY THE 22nd FORSURE
OR AVAILABLE AT SOME STORES OVER THE COURSE OF THIS WEEKEND MAYBE

SO STFU AND STOP CRYING AND ASKING WHEN. IF YOU REALLY WANT THE DAMMN THING CALL OR PASS BY YOUR NEAREST MPCS CORPORATE STORE, YOU MIGHT GET LUCKY AND GET IT BEFORE MONDAY, IF NOT ON THE 22nd LIKE EVERYONE ELSE.

I am very happy for everyone who's soon to get their new S3s.

Looking at the vids though, man, the 4.8" screen really makes it look like a Big Ass Honkin' Phone in the hand. Looks a heck of a lot bigger than my 4.3" DX. Sure makes me wonder when or if someone is going to say enough, how big is big enough (or TOO big) for a phone?

Sorry OT:
6.1 inch Huawei Ascend Mate

Well, Huawei sure seems to think that there is room for about 6/10ths of an inch more before we start hitting that boundary that asks us to decide whether or not it’s a phone or tablet. That’s right — a 6.1 inch smartphone (if you can even call it that anymore) called the Huawei Ascend Mate may be in the works.

So now my question is....should I get the Galaxy s III on release day at full price or wait until they drop down the price?

Also maybe I should trade in my LG Connect and see how much I'll get. Or maybe I'm better off selling it to someone. But at what price is best to sell??? Hmmm

I think that 6.1 would be too big.

You don't need to take it to the store to activate it... sign up for an account on metropcs.com, just click on activate device and follow the on screen instructions.. easy as that.

If you already have an account with Metro, you just turn on the phone you bought Online and you dial *228 and choose the option to activate your new phone

Well they can delete this useless thread once the phone is in stores, cause all it's filled with are a bunch of "IT'S COMING NEXT WEEK IT'S COMING NEXT MONDAY IT'S COMING THIS FRIDAY" posts for about 40 pages.
