Amazon listings confirm AT&T and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S III, SIM-free units priced at $799
Those Galaxy S III models for North America codenamed SGH-I747 and SGH-T999 that were approved in the Bluetooth SIG, got indirectly confirmed once again to be the ones heading to AT&T and T-Mobile.

Amazon has a bunch of accessories listed for the SGH-I747 and SGH-T999, which are labeled for Samsung Galaxy S3 on AT&T and T-Mobile, respectively. These include car holders and charger, cases, water-resistant armbands, so we can be more certain now the Galaxy S III will appear on those carriers pretty soon.

As for pricing of the SIM-free version, Amazon is listing $799, with availability scheduled May 25, and first pre-order shipments expected to commence June 4, but these are just imports, not the official Samsung pricing for the US.

Even better, just have the quad and LTE version since they're rolling out LTE next year.

Thanks Abdane for your good heart, I am a T-Mobile USA customer for 7 years and I wish S3 quad-core come to T-Mobile too.

$799 - should I purchase a pc; save another $300, and buy an used car; or walk and purchase the plastic phone. Decision, decision!!!!!!

Sorry, I can't see the justification of buying an $800 smartphone. Like, what average consumer has $800 laying around to buy a phone that will become obsolete in a couple of months.? Sorry for being cynical, I just need to see the value.

Every high-end unlocked phone should cost no more than $500.

Make the sellers here you then. Start something. Something huge to let the company's know we deserve cheaper prices. Dont let them change the industry and prices. We should be the ones changing everything!

S3 does look nice, but im still not giving up my sexy white Galaxy Note. I do think its funny and sad irony that Verizon is once again giving the finger to so many customers by not having the S3 on their network. I don't regret leaving them last month after being a customer all these years with them, pay early term fee and getting my Note on AT&T. Bye bye red V
