    To be honest with you Mike I wouldn't expect them in stores next week and if so you would have to get one right after those who preordered picked theirs up. I am expecting shortages.

    No. There are two ways to check your order, one shows its backordered and the other says its being shipped or activated.

    Okay so I'm looking at my order which was shipped out today (Not the GS3)..... And it says
    Scheduled Delivery:
    Wednesday, 06/20/2012, By End of Day

    So that means if we were to receive it by the 21st It will have to be shipped No Later Than Tomorrow. If not we won't be receiving it launch date.

    Took me a while to find it. lol. If anyone is has problems finding it like I did, here is what you do.

    "Sign into your account, Go to "See My Bill" from the "My Account" page, On the right hand side of your bill page will be a "I Want To" section, there will be a link to "See My Order History", It should show in there."

    This whole DM order number thing is kinda creepy. In the order status, it says "Order in Progress" and if I go to sprint.com/myorders and put in the order number, it says
    "Status: The equipment has shipped and/or the activation is complete"

    However, my account still shows that I have $200 credit on my account and only shows 1 device on my account, so clearly it hasn't been activated. And it hasn't been shipped because they activate new line phones before shipping and I haven't been given an tracking number.

    So I don't believe it has been either activated nor shipped. I do believe it has been flagged to be activated and shipped, though. If the warehouse is in Kentucky, I would be those who live on the west coast would be the ones that got the 3 day shipping and those of us in the heartlands and the east coast would get 2 day shipping and should see some actual progress tomorrow.

    At least, that's my theory and I'm sticking to it either falls apart or is confirmed tomorrow :p

    Two other phones that I have ordered that are in, activated and in use. The amount paid for that is also still in credit. Very weird

    I hope they ship my SG3 today!!! Pre-ordered it on June 5 @ midnight, right when they launched pre-order. If they're shipping from Louiville, KY, I'd def. want them to ship it by today. But it seems like they might ship it overnight via UPS or Fedex. I've ordered the car charger along with SG3 and it got to be in a day via overnight pkg service (I live in Los Angeles). Hope they overnight the phone too!!!

    In that case, it very possible that everyone will get their phone on 21st...:mad: and that would suck!! pretty much no real benefit of investing chunk of money to pre-order haha boohoo on samsung for throwing an event for S3 on 6/20!!

    I had my order in within the first 40 minutes (it was showing that it was available on my computer for some reason at first), but I was hoping that that would be enough to be one of the first to get it, but I'm not feeling so confident right now.

    Pretty sure at least some of us would've received some kind of tracking# info. by now if they were actually shipping some today. Now I'm starting to think that they will indeed ship it on 20th (hopefully via overnight pkg service). SOB! hahahah :mad:

    I did not pre-order my phone online just to get it early. I would rather have had to pick it up in the store. But since 32GB version was only available online, I went that way. I am cool if we get on the 21st. As long as I get it this before Friday.

    All models were showing "Preorder Closed" when I posted that. It looks like now the 16gb is available again.

    I leave to go to South Beach on Friday, so I really want that phone before I leave. I would hate to be on vacation with my epic and it's terrible battery life. I'm going to be out all day not in my hotel or with a car charger all day.
