    Good to know the automatic activation worked w/o removing unlimited.

    Were you on a 3G before? EDIT: nevermind... reread your post.

    The estimated delivery date is 7/9. It is what it is:) It left Coatsville, Pa yesterday afternoon... but haven't got any updates on where it is now (24+ hrs later). Just a little jealous of folks that are getting shipping notifications today and getting phones tomorrow and I got my notification yesterday and will get it Monday.

    Good news is I talked to our shipping clerk today and our Fedex truck typically arrives at 8:30 - 9:00am. So I will have ~1hr on Monday to activate the phone, switch sim cards, get a little bit of a charge on it, have my fiancee come get her soon to be Gnex, and then go to the airport for my flight:D

    I've seen posts from people who ordered as late as the 16th and the 18th who have received shipping confirmations. Seems there is no rhyme or reason to the order in which these things are being shipped.

    Didnt put in an order till the 27th (Just kept putting it off till the last min due to being busy ) Though I dont expect to get in line before all the other folks here, I hope verizon will put it out by monday at the latest and throw it in as overnight... Having to wait till after the in store date will be kinda BS on a pre-order. (barring you didnt order a couple days before release where they just couldnt ship in time)

    Got the 16GB PB and have a nice 64GB micro SD sitting here waiting to be thrown into it.

    I hate to say this but watch your phone take a tour of Philly before it heads your way like mine did. Maybe you will luck out and they'll Air freight it out of Philly - skipping the tour bus.

    So from what I'm seeing, most of the 7/9 preorders have been shipped. I think the rest will be shipped tomorrow, and they'll start shipping 7/10 preorders. I ordered on 6/14 (first day of the 7/10 expected ship date) so hopefully mine will ship tomorrow!

    haha that would be awesome! I arranged things at work to be able to go home and sign for it on Monday. Just crazy how things are working themselves out with the phone. I'm also getting antsy cause all the guys at work are trying to make me feel bad by saying the phone will get lost or it will be broken when I get it. :mad: Darn co-workers just don't understand. haha. So I want it to prove them wrong that it came in great condition and works like a charm. :eek:

    Actually I had the '+' yesterday for a short while then it went away. It's back this evening.

    Did you get an email first or did you see a tracking number on your Verizon order page first? Still no CC charge yet.

    I'm still holding out hope for a monday delivery but am thinking *if* it ships tomorrow that I'm looking at Tuesday

    Still no tracking number but my status is now "your order has been sent processing" with an estimated ship date of today, 7/5/12. No tracking info yet. Amex doesn't update their charges so quick, so I don't know if I've been charged. I'm hoping I see it tomorrow! :dancing::dancing:

    For all those following- 32 Gb blue, Chicago, ordered online 6/13

    FedEx... yea, those guys

    So under Shipment Facts the Service type is 2 day ISR?
    Where did you order from? Verizon.com or phone?

    What it sounds like is since 07/04 technically wasn't a business day, the shipments processed by volunteers on 07/04 are being held at the FedEx facility to be shipped out the next business day (tonight 07/05). That would explain why no info or movement last night.

    Yeah it sucks. That's how I felt last night. Glad to hear you'll be able to grab and go on Monday morning.

    Question for you, Fedex under any duress to not deliver early but to hold it up and only deliver on the day it is scheduled no matter what?

    As I mentioned before, normal ground from where it is coming gets the package there next day.

    My status just changed to "order sent for processing" and the expected ship date went from 7/9/2012 to blank, still no CC charge (or the bank hasn't listed it yet). preordered on 6/6

    Edit: my CC has been charged now

    Just ordered mine off Amazon earlier today and it's already shipped, should be here in a couple days. Coming from a Lumia 900 and I can't wait to get my hands on this beast. I left the Android scene last year due to being underwhelmed with Froyo and I wasn't real hot with some of the ROMs that were out back then. Went back to an iPhone, little while later switched to the Lumia to try something different. Now I'll have the GSIII which I've lusted for since we first found out about it. Something tells me this phone is going to blow my Lumia out big time and I can't wait for that feeling of tinkering and customizing a phone again, something I've missed for quite a while.

    When you get and they ask to see it - tell them NO, go get your own!

    Ordered on Verizon.com says FedEx 2day service. Not the end of world... just a bit of a bummer with folks getting phones overnighted. In hindsight I would have slept in on 6/6 instead of getting up at 5:00am MST to preorder. Oh well... first world problems:)

    Odd, you should have a 7/9 ship date. Yours should be one of the first 7/10 preorders to ship though.

    Man I just spent hours reading posts from people I've never heard of in the past two days that a small number of us spent chatting about pre-order notifications/rollouts/no email at all. Most of the last 9 pages are real basket case scenarios. Luckily, we are all hear to support each other whether you have one on it's way or not.

    Hi, my name is toptobottom and I have a waiting for my S3 problem.....

    FedEx... yea, those guys

    THE FOLLOWING WORKS IN THAT SHORT TIME BETWEEN WHEN YOUR FEDEX LABEL HAS BEEN PRINTED BUT YOU HAVEN"T RECEIVED YOUR SHIPPING EMAIL. TRY IT IF YOU WANT.

    For those if you that are like grossie and have CC charged, status changed, but no FedEx tracking number yet:

    The reference number Verizon is using for the shipments is based on the Order location and Order number (NOT the preorder number).

    Go to Verizon Status with your preorder number (or look at you order confirmation email the day you ordered).
    Get the Order Location and Order Number

    Go to FedEx.com Track by Reference page.

    Leave Account number blank

    For reference number try:
    LLLLLLL_00NNNNNNN where the Ls are your Order Location (including and letters), then underscore and 2 zeros, and the Ns are the Order Number. My order number was 7 digits. If your's was less than 7 you might try adding up to 4 zeros and try again.

    Fill in Destination country and Destination zip code.

    Let me know if this works, or if I'm just wasting your time.


    No, there have been initiatives in the past, but none currently. And as I've said before, at my station we NEVER get Verizon packages in early, they always arrive the day they are to be delivered. Verizon ships ALL the time, and they've got the FedEx system figured out.
