    My guess is take whatever the next to last one is, add four weeks and that will be Verizon US ;)

    No, really :(

    May 1 for t-mobile cause, you know, they're pink!

    Allons enfants de la patrie,
    Le jour de gloire est arriv?
    Contre nous de la tyrannie
    L'?tendard sanglant est lev?
    Entendez vous dans les campagnes,
    Mugir ces f?roces soldats?
    Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
    Egorger nos fils, nos compagnes!

    Refrain

    Aux armes, citoyens!
    Formez vos bataillons!
    Marchons! Marchons!
    Qu'un sang impur
    Abreuve nos sillons!

    Well Verizon takes at least 3-4 weeks to put they're branding on the home button...lol, that's just a ridiculous thing if they brand it the same way they did the note 2!

    What's up Rushmore ...

    Howdy sean76!

    I agree the extra time is due to Verizonizing the devices.

    well april the 26th it should be but with the fiasco of the blue s3 release in the uk , it could be the 26th of may if something like that happens again .


    also cpwh reporting record breaking pre registering . 4 times more than any other device ever made, so if thats just one company then there may be shortages elsewhere if other companies are getting these high demands too

    I'm mostly curious about Sprint. From what I recall they were pretty quick with the S3 but I'm not exactly sure what the wait time was as I didn't actually know about the phone when it was first announced.

    Rest assured, once the first US carrier announces a launch date, the others will be tripping over themselves to get it out at the same time or sooner.

    That being said, expect the US launch to begin with Sprint on Friday May 17th 2013

    Rumor has it that AT&T will be the first carrier in the USA to carry the phone and it will be out at the end of April.

    Everything is a guesstimation and rumors people may have read from around the web, nothing is confirmed and no one knows exactly when the S4 will be available in the US. A late May or Early June release date is my guess on when it will become available for the US.

    A bottleneck that could result in delays might be the display, since a newer design. Whatever the case, I hope Verizon offers the 64gb version, but they will probably stick with 16gb and 32gb.

    Why do you need a 64gb one? that is way to much space IMO . isn't 32 enough.

    CEO John Legere stated at the T-Mobile's "UnCarrier" conference that the device will arrive "about May 1st," which means, providing no major hitches arise, consumers will only have to wait around five weeks to get their hands on Samsung’s latest and greatest smartphone effort.

    Considering that the other carriers want to be able to release these phones in and around the same time so as to provide their competition no advantages in the market, I see AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon to be releasing the Galaxy S4 around that same time, plus or minus a day or so.

    nope. i have a 32 gb galaxy nexus. between the music, pics, hd vids, apps, files, pdfs, backups...i have about 1.5gb free. at least 20gb if not more will make it over to the new device. and i'll only be adding to it from there, so for me 32gb would not be enough. i'm glad they'll have the option for sd on this phone so i don't have to pare down what i want to keep on it. :)


    patiently waiting for a verizon release date...
