    Hi. I have been using my samsung fascinate for 2 years. I am hard on my phone - cracked screen, lost cover. Lol. I am also a verizon customer. I am thinking about taking advantage of radio shacks deal this weekend and getting the s3 but concerned with negative stuff I'm hearing about s3 and verizon. Should I go for it or not? Debbie

    What exactly are the negatives of the s3 you're hearing about?

    I owned one for a week and found it to be a very good phone. Nice big beautiful screen, good battery life, fast, and arguably the best device on Verizon imo. However I switched back to the Nexus for other reasons and returned the s3. If you feel like it's worth it, then I say go for it. And may I also add, you shoudl think about insurance if you're hard on your phone:D

    I did in fact pick up the S3 over the weekend. I also purchased the Otterbox commuter case. Radio shack offered me insurance claiming it is the same coverage as Verizon provides but with a $100 deductible vs Verizon's $150. Does it matter if I go with RS?
