    That is strange as my pre-order confirmation states "Ship By: 06/06/2012" - there is no mention of an anticipated ship date. It would be great if that is true!!

    (order completed at 7:15 am ET to be delivered to New York)

    My confirmation email also lists a ship by 6-6-2012. If you check your order status through your order number, a ship date is not available. I was given the anticipated July 9th date by speaking with an employee.

    I looked more carefully at my order and see that they have added a new monthly $5.00 fee.

    250 MSG CAMERA $5

    Did anyone else get this? Any idea what it is for?

    @kiwiguy,

    My plan stayed as it was. I have always paid for the 500 MSG w/unlimited mobile to mobile portion of the plan, which is $10. The $5 plan, I believe is the most basic allowed messaging plan. Unless you wish to pay as you go (per message).

    The $5 250 text message plan is an old one which is grandfathered in if you had it before.

    Oh ok, I had to call to pre-order. Needed to transfer an upgrade and for whatever reason, couldn't do it online and then place the order. Will be a long wait either way.

    I woke up this morning with every intention of going and buying the nexus. Luckily, I decided to check VZW's website and saw I could preorder the S III. It will be a long wait.

    Unlimited Uncertainity

    I'd love to believe that Verizon will honor the pre-order results people have been showing. But I know Verizon is greedy (supporting their shareholders) and it wouldn't surprise me if grandfathered unlimited data does not end up going away. For everyone. Period.

    I spoke with a customer rep today that was actually doing what he was told (I assume). And that is to not talk about unlimited at all. Consequently, he would not answer a single question about grandfathered unlimited data. He wouldn't say anything about... 1) paying full price to keep, 2) pre-ordering to keep or 3) waiting to purchase after some CDMA/LTE reviews have posted.

    What information has helped all of you take the risk to pre-order? What is your logic if you end up with a GSIII that ends up w/o unlimited or even a radio issue?

    Simple. They can't change the plan unless I'm upgrading, and if my phone comes a month from now and they don't honor it, I have 30 days to tell them to go fill up their bathtubs with gasoline, open up a nice bottle of wine, and light up a cigarette.
