AT&T lowers the Galaxy S III price to $99 on contract
Apparently, AT&T understands that consumers need enough motivation in order to press the Buy button next to the Galaxy S III, which, while still being a very capable smartphone, is significantly less appealing than its successor, which is expected to make its debut on all US carriers very soon. On AT&T, the Galaxy S4 will be available for pre-order on April 16, and will probably start shipping soon after, as its release date on T-Mobile is set for May 1.
Back to the Galaxy S III - as we said, the handset is still pretty likable with its 4.8" 720p screen, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and tons of other features, so if you aren't in the mood of paying for a premium handset, you might be better off siding with this proven smartphone that's now confidently entering mid-range territory.
You can purchase the $99.99 Galaxy S III in blue, white or garnet red.

you mean mid range price, right? and THIS is why I don't buy any phone when they first come out. I don't need to have the newest phone on the block. I'm going to get the Note 2 for half the price it was back in November, and it's still going to be very relevant. great job Sammy!

hell to the yes. Samsung obviously makes good enough phones that they last (maybe it's the plastic?), and most of them are still selling pretty well. heck, they haven't retired the S2 yet, and uscellular, boost, walmart among others are promoting THAT samsung goodie. the S3 will still be a big seller this time next year.
