    Mine sat all day at my local FedEx office. So frustrating. The scheduled delivery date is tomorrow, but when I saw that it was at my local FedEx office this morning, I thought maybe it would come today. When I checked the tracking later in the morning, it said something like. "Not scheduled for delivery" meaning it was two miles away just sitting... waiting until the scheduled delivery date - which is tomorrow. I called to see if I could pick it up, but no. I could have spent the evening tonight setting it up. Tomorrow I won't have much time. It will have to wait until the next time I have a couple of hours - Saturday afternoon!

    Sorry - I just had to share. I know that you good people don't really need to hear about another person waiting for a phone!

    possibly the difference between overnight and 2 day shipping depends on if you bought it on upgrade or paid full price?? i have no idea about that, just a thought

    It's okay, JK, we're not only fellow Droiders, we're your built-in support group! :)
    That is a stupid policy, but I guess they want to follow Verizon's rules or lose the next contract to UPS or something.

    I was NOT expecting to hear that the ship by date meant well probably get them AFTER theyre already in the store. That is complete and utter BULL. I preordered the phone expecting to at least get it the day its in the store. Guess I'll have to wait until next Thursday. FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU VZW

    Pre order - keep Unlimited data
    In store purchase - S.O.L. on keeping unlimited data

    Pre-order - 32gb available
    In store - not at first, again S.O.L.

    Knowing this, which option would you have made?

    Is there a way to set my email to only notify me of emails from Verizon? I hate running to my phone for every *ding* just to be disappointed. :)

    You should guess why Verizon opted out on the free dropbox gig.

    Verizon Cloud share coming to you soon for only $10.00/mo.

    Wow. I don't know about you, but when I don't get treated like I think I should from a business I no longer use them. I wouldn't stay with a company that I hated as much as you seem to indicate here..

    I think you're free to change companies if you'd like. Last I checked this is still America

    [sarcasm]Mark everything else in your inbox, saved messages, etc as spam. That way only Verizon emails will get thru from now on. Note: Your work, creditors and loved ones might not approve of this method.[/sarcasm]

    Same Pebble Blue 32 gig, I was charged for it today and my order status has the '+' next to tracking, but just says "will be shipped by 7/9" Don't they only charge when they ship? Still no email...

    The Eagle has Landed! My 32GB Blue is sitting on the charger! I did the automatic activation and it worked fine and I still have unlimited data listed in my online account. Along with a very hot picture of an blue S3 as My Device.

    Coming from an OG Inc, it is hard getting used to the power button being on the side.

    What was the original 'Estimated delivery' from the FedEx tracking? It's directly under Ship date at the top of the form.

    Where is yours shipping from ('Left FedEx origin' Location)?

    The hub, MEM, was closed Tuesday night till Wednesday night, but it sounds like they had someone volunteer to work on July 4th to pickup and take back to the station.

    My first Android, HTC Droid Eris, had the volume on the left side and I would hit it all the time. I was a little worried about that but then I remembered the Eris was half the size of the SIII.

    My wife got her confirmation of shipping today around 10:30am and I received mine at 7pm. Hers is the 32gb white and I've got the 32gb Blue.....both will be here tomorrow!!!!! It shows that both have overnight shipping!!!! All I know is that if my wife got hers before me I was going to be a grumpy guy, but after the email at 7pm I'm stoked!!! :D

    Most useful post in the last 5 pages. Shows there's hope for the rest of us late orderers. I have the same order date and phone options.

    Where are you located?
