Well we at least know insidesprintnow has already stated that the web page for pre orders are coming. So even if those pics were photoshopped, who knows...that could be the phone. I just want at least a 32 gig with the 2 gigs of ram and dd card.

I'm not doubting you, but I would like to read this for myself. I'm hoping this is not the case. But if it is, I'll wait.

You can doubt me. I must have read something wrong. If the memory is SD why couldn't you have 16,32 and 64. Ignore my previous comment.

I bet this will be out by end of June or early July.

2gb Ram and physically unchanged from the international model. Since S-Voice is integrated in the physical button Samsung is probably requiring all carriers to keep the button.

The 20th is the New York event, so anytime between the 20th and July is what I'm expecting.

This thread is the first I've seen those pictures. Perhaps the people who have distributed these pictures are not people who frequent Twitter? People are also excited for the US to get the GS3, and because of that, I can understand why people get whisked away with fakes.

There is a thread in the Sprint forum and in the EVO LTE forum with the pics posted. AP also posted them on their facebook.

My point was was that they were fake. How else would they have gotten the photos if not from AP's post? It's not like any other site picked up the photos and posted them as real.

I have no doubt that after seeing the FCC filing for both Verizon's and Sprint's model that the design will remain unchanged, but that doesn't mean those photos still weren't photoshopped.

I would not touch the Galaxy S3 with a ten foot pole if they have not fixed the horrible radio which the Galaxy 2 had, I can only assume the S3 will have a horrible radio also.

So are all the phones available from each carrier going to be the same spec size wise? Should make the cases available for it universal, correct? I can't decide if I want the blue or white, step son is getting my SGSII. Sure I'll have to get the wife one too...she still has the OG EVO and it's showing it age. Hope Sprint lets me upgrade early My upgrade is due July 1rst!

Question about pre-orders. Do you need money for a pre-order for Sprint? Also Sprint's website is showing that the phone supports up to 32GB micro SD? Why is it saying 32GB when Samsung has already said it supports 64GB micro SD?

can anyone explain to me the advantages of paying $50 for an extra 16gb of space when you can just buy a bigger SD card?

Is this just for the hardcore people who want to have 128 gb of space?

Well with the 16 gigs you get about 9 gigs that can actually be for the apps. For some reason ICS doesn't allow you to save to the sd card like previous versions of Android. So paying the extra $50.00 you can have the knowing you will be ok and if you were to add a 64 gig card like I am going to do, that can be for your music and pics and vids.

Notsure Does this means S3 Comes out June 21st For Sprint?

I was trying to pre-order and I was reading on sprint site on the S3 page it reads

"Pre-order Order online today, well charge your card for your phone and well do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Thursday, June 21. Ordering more than just this phone? Please complete your pre-order package checkout and come back to order additional items How pre-order works."

I ordered it last night. I really cannot wait for this phone. I am very happy that all the models are the same across the board and same specs...well except for At&t who decided to only go with 16gigs...but hey you can get it in red. Ummm...no. Me wants my 32 gig...but woohoo for a faster processor and 2 gigs of ram and a sd slot.

White 16GB. Best Buy is only taking pre-orders on the 16GB for Sprint, but with expandable memory it doesn't really matter.

Just so everyone is aware, I have begun merging Sprint-related pre-order/release date discussion threads into this thread, to keep the forums a little more organized. Thanks for understanding

I am very sad that I can not do what I said above as when I called Sprint they said the return policy is now only 14 days and I had to send the EVO LTE back now.

So I am without a phone until I get the S3 but that should only be 2 weeks. I do have a home phone so I can live with it.

"Pre-order Order online today, well charge your card for your phone and well do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on Thursday, June 21. Ordering more than just this phone? Please complete your pre-order package checkout and come back to order additional items How pre-order works."
I never noticed the wording until you mentioned it. So we could be looking at getting our phone really soon like the LTEvo pre-order was. That is really great news!

I called Account Services yesterday and they bumped my upgrade eligibility date from 7/1/12 to 6/18/12. I probably won't be able to sneak a preorder in for a white 32gb in time to get it shipped faster then pre-release date should be arriving, but I don't have any other option if I want the 32gb. At least I don't have to wait until July now.

I'm trading in a Evo 3D as their buy back program offers $90.00, will I be able to set that up through web sales or do I take care of that in store? I'm I better off selling the E3D myself on craigslist or something? What should I expect if I sell the E3D myself?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

First bit of advice is to never use that color for the font again. Incredibly hard to read.

Check Ebay for the EVO 3D and that will give you a good idea of what you can expect to get for it if you sell it on Craigslist. It will usually be more than what Sprint will ever offer you buyback-wise.

Remember it does also have expandable memory, up to a 64GB card, so unless you really think you need 96GBs, you could always get the 16GB.

Default Let the guessing game of when do you think the Sprint galaxy s3 pre orders will ship...

So with the release date of June 21st approaching, for those of us who pre ordered, when do you think the pre orders will ship? Keep in mind on the order page it states "we will do our best to get it to you before others get a glimpse on June 21st"

I want it to be Monday the 11th, just because.

I'm sorry about that... changed that as soon as I saw that. It won't happen again.

Thanks for the Ebay idea, I'll check it out. The way I figure, if I'm going to have to keep this phone for two years, I'm going to get the most bang for my buck without getting crazy by paying $350 or more for the 64gb.

Any idea what the 64gb will cost and what the ETA is for release?

Just curious, not wanting more than the 32gb.

When I said 64GB, I wasn't referring to the phone with internal. I was referring to getting a 64GB micro SD card. So you could get the 16GB model + a 64GB micro SD or you could get the 32GB model + a 64GB card.

And especially if you don't want more than 32GB, you could get the 16GB and get a class 10 16GB micro SD for a better price than buying the 32B model GS3

June 11th would be incredibly early. A week ahead would be a good guess, but I voted Monday the 18th because that actually seems more likely. But it doesn't matter for me since I pre-ordered at Best Buy.

To clarify I want the 32gb internal and will add a 64gb micro sd for a total of 96gb on board.

How much would the 64gb internal SG3 phone run, any press on it?

As far as I know no US carriers are getting the 64GB model. Just the 16 and 32, and even then not all carriers are getting the 32GB model.

I also added Wednesday, June 20th to the list as we don't know if Sprint will be allowed to ship more than a day early or not (to adjust for next-day delivery). I'm definitely a 'hope for the best, expect the worst' kind of guy.
