Samsung Galaxy S III to officially debut on Verizon July 10
The pre-order ship date for the Samsung Galaxy S III on Verizon Wireless has slide around a few times now. We started at July 9th and then it was pushed to the 10th. As recently as last week, we were hearing that July 12th would be become the big day. While all this time Verizon continued to stick to its “coming weeks” routine, Big Red has finally announced an official launch date.

The blue one is definitely a keeper. Its crazy because depending on the angle and room lighting the phone can come off as being purple-ish blue. It was wierd but I actually liked it.

Let's just hope that Apple doesn't ban the GS III before it's in stores

Time to file an injunction request, have the hearing, wait for the judge to rule, appeal the ruling, and, and, and, would extend way beyond mid-July. For reference, Apple hasn't posted the bond ($90+m) for the injunction on the GNexus....

If the bond on the galaxy nexus is $90 million, can you imagine what the bond on the SGS3 would be? It would have to be at least $900 million.

Some on Android Central are reporting that their credit cards have been charged today and that their order has updated on Verizon website. Not showing as shipped but order status has changed. I have not had any changes as of yet and no charges to my card. My wait continues.

Make sure you pay attention and track the status of your pre-orders. I ordered mine on June 20th, received the confirmation and everything via email. On June 27th, they emailed me saying the order was cancelled. I called VZW customer service and they told me it was a "glitch" in their system and I would have to re-order the phone, so I just did that yesterday. And why does VZW phone releases always get pushed back? It happens all the time, I never see that with the other carriers.

Same thing happened to me. I ordered it before Verizon changed the policy about keeping the grandfathered unlimited data plan,when upgrading. I called and was assured that when i reordered,i will keep my unlimited plan.

I just received my Verizon shipment notification today at 5:23. Does that mean I'll get it on the 5th or 6th? I hope as I seen a white one at Sprint today and it is awesome!

Just checked my FedX info as well, July 5th my white S3 should be delivered. I'm pumped especially after seeing one at Sprint store today. Very very thin and as small as can expected for the screen size.

Of those who have been sent tracking numbers and your phone has shipped what day did you pre order? Curious if these are first day pre-order people or more dates other than first day.
