The bronze version of this phone looks like a Band-Aid.

Verizon too focused on the new HTC one they just released yesterday. Probably won't see preorders

Verizon's website has a page saying preorders are coming soon...

Yep. I have been eagerly awaiting this phone since my renewal came up in late January. I noticed that Verizon had the preorder link on their main page BEFORE the new HTC One M8 was released. Now it's no longer on the main page so they can flaunt the new One, but it's still there if you look around for it.

So we don't have any VZW insiders or tipsters that might have the slightest idea when pre-orders might begin?

Wow...It's kind of surprising to me that there's so little interest in finding out the pre-order or release date for Verizon. When the original Droid Incredible was about to be released 4 years ago, there were tons of updates about it in here.

I'm anxious for the new phone but I'm not up for renewal until April 15 - 4 days after the release.

But I'll be ordering one as soon as I can.

Default Still no preorder with Verizon?

Some people in the VZW forum said that a VZW rep told them it would be available for preorder on April 1st. The one I spoke with last night at my local store said they had no idea when they would get it but the Samsung rep he spoke with made it sound like it would be within the next 3 weeks.

I'm REALLY frustrated that there's absolutely NO NEWS on this front. I am SO overdue for an upgrade - I have a Galaxy Nexus! This phone is ancient. Awesome...but ancient. It has served me well and continues to do so, but I am just so ready for a new phone. I was due for an upgrade in October, but wasn't that keen on anything available at the time and knew there had to be something in the works for the spring, so I figured I would hold out. Verizon has always been excellent about customer service and all that, yet they won't release a whisper about getting the phone. No pre-orders, no nothing. You'd think if they value their costumers as much as they say they do they'd say SOMETHING because now they do have a whole front of pissed off people.

Tell me about it. When the HTC Droid Incredible was being released on Verizon about 4 years ago, this place was blowing up with posts. There were so many that I couldn't keep up. Now it seems like this is a ghost town with tumbleweeds rolling through, or maybe people just don't get as excited over new tech as they used to.

That's what has me worried. They're saying April 1st....biggest joke day of the year....I am not inclined to believe anything on that day.

If it is legit, wouldn't it be plastered all over Verizon's main page tomorrow? Shouldn't those that signed up for an email alert get the notice that preordering has begun?

I just tried searching for "s5" in Verizon's website and it took me to an order listing but when I hit the "shop" but it just takes me to the preorder sign up page. Has the website already been showing this? A couple of weeks ago when I tried that it took me to a sign up page directly. I didn't attach an image because I didn't have time.

Great news!

I went to the Verizon store yesterday to look at the note 3 and the Galaxy s4 and the salesman and the manager both told me that the s5 is going to be coming on April 11th.


I didn't ask when the s5 was coming out I was just looking at the s4 and she said oh by the way the s5 is coming on the 11th and that I should wait for it instead of buying the s4

she sacrificeda sale for it so I'm pretty sure its legit she said okay we'll see you on the 11th basically she is waiting for me to come and buy on the 11th.


--

On another note, the verizon stores are hardcore salesy now. As I walked in the store there was a manager and about 5 salesman with tablets staring at me with saliva dripping from their mouths which was pretty uncomfortable. I thought I was on the dinner menu of sorts. They said how can I help you and i said "Im just looking at the note 3 and the s4" and they immediately assigned me to a salesman who was super aggressive.

So beware if u go into a verizon store its like walking into a shark tank.

Maybe this is a good sign. Could it mean they are making changes to the website so the preorder can go live?

Interesting. Someone on the Verizon community forum had a live chat with a rep earlier THIS MORNING and that rep said they still have no idea when they are getting the S5.

online reps are a lot different with less information.

if you want inside information you have to go in the store and talk to a manager who has details on inventory etc.

even if a live rep knows, they wont tell u

Does anyone else feel like customers from other carriers will have these in their hands before Verizon starts taking orders for them? There is a growing amount of frustration in Verizon's community forum and the lastest post from a Verizon representative is "The next big thing is almost here" with a link to sign up for email updates about the preorder.

IMO it'd be colossally STUPID for VZW to miss out on the April 11th launch of the phone and delay it. People will get the phone elsewhere - I saw some sites that said you can get it at Best Buy and such and then activate it for VZW. VZW wants to make money. To do so, you need to get the phone at VZW. If they are complete idiots, they will not have the phone on April 11th. They will lose $$...but I don't see them doing that...

But stupid enough not to have a preorder? Okay....I can see that.

How could you get one at Best Buy and activate it on Verizon? Wouldnt it have to be a Verizon branded s5?

Someone in the XDA developers forum said a live chat told them the preorders would definitely start on the 5th, which I find very unlikely since that is a Saturday. Another sales rep told someone that it would definitely start on the 3rd, which is tomorrow. Someone said earlier that Verizon usually rolls out new phones on Thursdays, so maybe there's some truth to that.

Edit: I can't believe how dead it is in here. I really thought there would be more excitement over this phone. I guess there are only maybe 5 of us that are interested in finding out when the VZW preordering will begin.

I think social media platforms have killed forums. A lot of forums I used to visit are dead.

I still have the Galaxy NEXUS from Verizon. Talk about an OLD phone. I am so ready for an upgrade.

Make that 6. I'm waiting to replace a RAZR Maxx with an S5.

Anyone who actually cares about a Verizon preorder would probably fare better checking out the S5 preorder thread on Verizon's own community forum since this forum seems completely dead.

Well, since Verizon was about a month behind the other US carriers for the S4, I suppose a release in early May could be expected. 😱

There is a rumor that the preordering will go live on their site tonight at midnight, but they are taking preorders via phone today. I haven't confirmed this, so take it for what it's worth....another rumor.

I posted this on the Verizon Wireless thread (linked a couple posts up), but thought I would put it here too. I just got off the phone with Verizon Wireless customer service, as I was dropping a line on an old flip phone we no longer use. The CS rep noticed my main line was eligible for upgrade, and offered me the Galaxy S4. I told him I was waiting for the S5 to be released, and he told me they are now accepting preorders for the S5. He said the device would be released on April 10th. I asked if I preordered now, would I receive the device on the 10th, or would it be shipped on the 10th, and he said I would receive it that day. He said the price is $249 with a $50 mail in rebate. I told him I would call back if I decided to upgrade with that deal. Any other Verizon customers can call 800-922-0204 and see if you can get the preorder. I kind of want to wait and see if there will be any other better deals, because I absolutely despise mail in rebates.

Breaking Update!!

I just called Verizon to check on the rumor of preorders being conducted via phone today and I was told that they are not taking any preorders right now, but the woman did say she would go ask her supervisor if he had any information about the preorders. She came back a few minutes later and said the offical preorder starts TOMORROW! She said they got an internal email about it, but she didn't get it, but verified it with
another coworker. I asked her if that meant it would start tonight at midnight and she said no.....more likely tomorrow around 7:00 am (not sure which time zone).

Yes. To my knowledge, the 32 GB model won't be available at launch.

Just a heads up, Verizon preorder is for the 16GB version.
That means around 8GB of space is left :/

Preloaded Apps

Thanks for doing the research on this axel! it's 16gb but it does have the micro SD card slot right? And even if pre-ordered, you don't get it til the 11th? I think I might still hold out til April 11th and get it in the store....

Yes it had a micro sd card slot. It should ship before the 11th so it will be in your hands on the 11th but it's possible you may get it a day or two early depending on how early you preordered.

Anyway, I guess its me and 5 others waiting eagerly for an announcement! Can't wait!

Some folks have moved on to other forums, since separates the different carrier versions. It can get too confusing posting here, once the different versions release. There are enough differences to warrant separation, but that discussion was killed here some time ago.

Phandroid decided not to and this seems to have had some level of impact.

For VZW, they tend to launch $50 higher than other carriers for the 16GB, so do not bother with a 32GB model at all, or wait several months like with the S4. They only offered the 32GB then due to customer complaints.

If HTC offered the 16GB M8 in the US markets, VZW would have milked that too. VZW execs milk it real good. Kind of like Munson in the movie Kingpins You have to see it to get that one

Good movie BTW
