    Not just Sprint. Tmo is also having supply issues and the common issue is supply from Samsung. Seems there is a method behind VZW madness and Best Buy not listing storage size options- unlike the S3 preorders.

    Either Samsung is moving too early to cover channel supply, or the retail channels are forcing them to. My guess is Samsung pulled the release trigger too early. Then again, I have been saying that for two weeks now.

    Ugh this sucks. Does anyone have a guess as to when they will get it ? Im dying of anticipation.

    So does anyone know if I can buy the htc one today and use that until the s4 comes out? Will they let me exchange it ?

    Every carrier is delaying now which is ridiculous. Wasn't one of the reasons to get an S4 over the HTC One is because it would arrive on time? Not so the case anymore.

    Blame Samsung pushing something without supply to support it so early.

    With Sprint you have a 10 day return window so you could get one and return it next week if you don't mind tying up a little $ on a CC.

    I read a few different articles and feel confident that those who preordered early enough will get them 4/27. There is never mention of Sprint not receive any, its just "not as many" so the first people preordering will be fine.

    I didn't have to pay a restocking fee when I returned the EVO LTE for the S3.
    This is a business account so not sure if that is different.

    I called Sprint corporate headquarters they said the pre order was only on the web or the phone not in the stores. That means if you preordered in the store you did not preorder. I also ordered in the store and had to buy a Non refundable gift card. I hear now the store was counting on providing the phone out of the inventory they may not be getting for a while..

    I think we all should just wait and see. It's only a couple days and who knows.

    I heard so many things, so lets just wait until Sat and see whats what.
