    I know how you feel Hal, I got off the phone with Verizon earlier about the overnight vs 2nd day shipping that some people are getting but just went around in circles even though it showed as Free Overnight Shipping at the time of my order.

    Glad you finally got a shipping confirmation email at least.

    Not true exactly.... Talked to a friend who works at verizon store as manager to try to settle my cancelled issue and was told they have limited stock on Tuesday and they are going to let them sell off what they already have now. They have an additional shipment coming in on Monday, but that is to be held for verizons launch day.

    He doesnt go in till 1:00, but is supposed to hold one for me if they have some left and will try to talk to the person in-charge earlier that morning to try to have them hold one till he gets there.

    I have to say that I'm coming from a broken down HTC incredible. That being said, It was very responsive and smooth. The size of the screen was awesome. Nice and bright.. My wife has a 4s, but she loved the weight and size of this phone. The iphone seemed like a rock compared to the S3. It also was very fast. I really liked it. I didn't use it for long, there was others that wanted to try it.

    I can't wait for tomorrow...Listen to me, I'm freaking out over a phone...I gotta be outta my mind..

    Bye Bye HTC incredible!!!

    If 3 different CS rep tells me one thing, like "it going out standard overnight" then it ships 2nd day, someone lied to me.

    I guess with 100 million customer there's really no reason for them to be concerned about any of us. It's not like they're going to loose a million customers because those with later orders are getting theirs before some earlier orders. Just go on thumbing your nose at us singing na-na-na-na-na-na

    BUT, like I said in earlier posts, I don't begrudge any of you who get you S3 before me.

    Hmm interesting. That may only be that particular store. All the managers around me won't sell any until Thursday (so they say). This launch is really screwed up...there's going to be quite a few people going in on Tuesday expecting to pick up a S3 since Verizon made that an official launch day last week.

    Looks like the push is happening....

    Just saw my first Samsung Galaxy S3 commercial (featuring the Pebble Blue, which at least in the commercial looks blue :)) which happened to be for Sprint during the PGA Tournament broadcast on CBS.

    Catch phrases
    "He's looking for his dongle...."
    "We're having a little dongle issue."
    "the next big thing is here"

    uhhhhh

    You just now saw a commercial for the S3? I saw the one a while ago where the guy is watching a video while he's doing something else.

    Hope other corporate stores are going to do the same, I have a RAZR Maxx I purchased June 26 and I'm going to exchange it for the Galaxy S3 the 10th the last day of the 14 day return window.
    I purchased the Maxx over the phone on 6/26, but received it 6/29. I was told by one csr
    the 14 day return starts when the phone is delivered, but who knows, you get a different answer from each employee.

    They have 100 million customers. You think they care about the several thousand waiting for in store delivery?

    Its going to be around 26-28 gbs. You'll never get the advertised size.
    Now if yours has like 22 out of the box then I would do a fresh wipe.

    Been lurking a while to see what's been goin on with everyone else's s3's!

    My info: (had to do some detective work to find my order # - any emails about my phone go to the account owner, of who I do not have much contact with.. so I am lost as to tracking emails and such! :'((( )

    anyway, here is what I have managed to dig up!

    >Went into a Verizon store 6/22 and pre-ordered Pretty BLUE! 32gb S3
    >CC was charged last night 7/7 and is pending (but BofA takes forever to switch from pending to competed, even if I had bought a damn ice cream!)
    >Spent all afternoon trying to figure out how to get my order number (all I had was my receipt, since I don't have access to the emails, as stated.)
    Anyway - looks like my order was shipped 7/7 due here 7/9 - sunny Cali, bay area.
    I have a FedEx tracking number I think (the number you get when you click the little (+) on the verizon order status page) but there is no info on the FedEx page for this tracking number... so wtf?

    I want mah phone!! And I hope to go i'm home when it comes... damn signing crap.

    Edit: Oh, I guess the '0' in the beginning of the tracking number is useless, so here is my new info:

    Picked up in Memphis, TN - delivery date expected 7/10 by 3pm

    So true.
    Instead of another press release, they put a five word blurb on the Galaxy S3 web page late Saturday night. Pretty chicken chit.
