    I am paying full price, so Best Buy. They usually are a day ahead of corporate stores.....


    Looks like the way they are handling this is a cluster fudge. 32gb are online only? Is this a supply issue?

    I wonder now if my Best Buy 32gb order will be next week.....

    Why does Sprint have no issue? Only got a few hundred orders? ;)

    I agree that I will be very upset if people can get the S3 in stores on July 10th and mine is being shipped to me that day...

    Pre-orders first, then in-store pickups! Cmon now!! :(

    Edit:

    "If you were planning to purchase the 32GB version in stores, it will be available in the “coming weeks.”

    So, based on the Incredible 4G, we know that "in the coming weeks" means 2 months.

    Isn't Best Buy usually more $ than Verizon stores?

    The only comfort of getting my phone after the 10th is that I'll retain my unlimited data, and I couldn't get a 32GB model in store anyways.

    I think charges will go through Friday and shipping will happen on Saturday. Monday deliveries for 1st day preorders

    Great news to hear they finally set their release date... now I want to know.. are they doing the overnight shipping for the pre orders that ordered on 6/6/2012... or will we have it on the tuesday after? Since I work on both days right now.. debating if I should request a day off so I have all day to play with the new phone. lol

    I believe that FedEX normally doesn't operate on Saturdays.

    Verizon can still print their FedEx labels and issue tracking numbers.

    Correct. And FedEx will process them Monday when business resumes, and they should be delivered Tuesday, if they are indeed next-day overnight, right?

    I thought it was free overnight too, but all the shipping info on VZW says items are shipped w/ free 2 day shipping & signature is required. So if shipped on Monday you receive on Wednesday.

    DAHHHHH.... so I'll get mine Thursday?

    Maybe it was wishful seeing, but I could have SWORN on the pre-order page it showed Next Day as my shipping option.

    Hopefully...
    It'll be bonkers if in-store buyers get it before pre-orderers.

    Everyone is forgetting the "ships by" they could ship anytime before the 9th.

    I will be a little mad if I dont get it before the in-store people, but I got mine shipped to the store. As long as I get to keep Unlimited and everything I am happy...

    Of course they operate on the weekends, for business always..For residential it has to be express or overnight or something for Saturday deliver.

    I'm hoping we get a little notice, the phones are shipped with delivery signature required. I need to know which day to miss work for. I'm sure it will all work out in the end
