Pre-ordered the 5th day and got it on the 6th!!
I pre-ordered my phone at Best Buy on the 6th, first day they were taking orders. After trying to get an answer from ANYONE on how that would play out with keeping my current unlimited plan, I decided to order one online through Verizon too. Ordered it on the 26th through Verizon, received it today.
Still haven't heard anything from Best Buy.
I have an unlimited Verizon data plan and put the galaxys3 on preorder. I just learned that they will ship with a locked bootloader!. This may make the unlimited data much less valuable! I had intended to use easy tether , to hard tether to my lap top (without the need to root the phone).... has anyone tried this? I have buyers regret already, please advise!!! I'm tempted to cancel the preorder due to the very high restocking fee ($70!). If I knew for a fact that easy-tether would work I would feel much better about my expensive pre-order.
thanks for your support,
PS, you can tell I'm new and not android savy. I hate the thought of having to root a brand new phone and risk ruining it. Not to mention that It might be impossible to root anyway (as least for me).
