    Good news! You get to keep your unlimted data plan if you pre-order the Samsung Galaxy S3 from Verizon!

    Post up in here once you pre-order yours!

    Come to daddy!

    Just pre-ordered my 32GB Pebble Blue Samsung. Confirmation states the phone will be "shipped by June 6th"!!! - so am foolishly hoping that this might be true and that I will have this new object of desire in my firm embrace in a couple of days!!

    The good news is that the new 2 year contract grandfathered in my existing unlimited data plan.

    Now the wait begins.....

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

    BTW: The Verizon site does not work with the Chrome browser - the "Next" buttons are not displayed!!

    I just put my pre-order in for a pebble blue 32GB one. Used my brother's upgrade (who's used the same flip phone for centuries now). Spoke to a VZ rep on the phone prior to doing it and she said she didn't know whether or not the grandfathered data would be gone by the time I got the phone and that she couldn't assure that I would get to keep it. However, I ordered it anyway, figuring that if they try to pull that on me I will return it and wait out the rest of my Thunderbolt contract and go somewhere else. I also can't be assured that if I wanted to later transfer my upgrade to get another flip phone for my brother (when my upgrade comes up in Jan) that I would keep unlimited data.

    Oh well, this is the new world we live in. I figure I'll see what happens and hope for the best. At least I'll have 14 days to return it if I get it and they try to screw me.

    My shipping date was July 9th. I held my friends Fascinate a couple nights ago and couldn't believe how much better the screen was then the TB. I could hardly see a thing on it. I hate this phone. Can't wait!! Good-bye P.O.S. Thunderbolt!! DancingNexus

    Placed an order through my local Best Buy retailer for a 32g Pebble blue one. My love affair with Moto and Droid phones is over. I LOVED my Droid X, have had mixed feelings with my Bionic. My wife got the Nexus a couple of months ago. I'm actually pretty excited to see what having this phone will be like.

    I was a first day adopter for each of the previous two phones and I swore I would wait until the SGS3 had been out for a while before I bought in. You can see how well that worked out!

    i pre-ordered 2 today got early upgrade form Verizon 2 months early. I paid 140 for first phone 100 off for upgrade to 4g Phone #2 i paid 240 for no discount But Verizon gave me a 100 dollar credit on my account so i paid a total of $275 for 2 Galaxy S III. both these phones are 16gb versions.

    P.S i am Nervous about this phone, i have been a diehard Motorola fan as well i currently have the Droid -x.
    I have 14-days after i receive it to keep it or maybe Razr maxx hd will be out and i can grab that.

    32 GB White here. I'm wondering how many others held on to their Droid X until this came out. OG Droid --> DroidX --> Galaxy S3

    Hope I won't regret leaving Moto

    LOL - I'm on my DX and was planning to stay on there, but now with unlimited data and the new $$$ plans, I'm thinking of grabbing the S3 while I can.

    Pre-ordered a 16gb white SIII to replace my Bionic.

    I'll sell the Bionic, get my g/f a RAZR Maxx and sell her RAZR... and then I'm set for 2 years... we'll see what VZW is offering in 2 years... I don't need unlimited talk and text...sigh...

    Odd?

    I decided to take the risk and pre-ordered after much dilemma. Now for the unfortunate wait. One oddity though... My email confirmation states ship by 7/9/12 like the majority. But when I go to VZW to check on the status, it says "Expected Ship Date: Not available at this time." Is this what everyone sees? Or should it state 7/9/12? And if so, should I give VZW a call? Excited & impatient...

    So I upgraded to the Maxx in late May because I thought VZW was getting rid of the unlimited plan. I had to exchange it for another one on June 5th because of problems. On my receipt it says I have until June 19th to return or exchange my phone. Can I return my Maxx and pre-order the S3?

    I get the same thing, even though I completed my preorder a few minutes after pre-ordering started on the 6th.

    Interesting. Decided to be impatient and call VZW this morning. The gentleman said that my order was still processing , but that everything was in working order, i.e. terms confirms, credit card charged, etc. And that a date will be forthcoming. So I'm forcing myself to wait 48 hours.

    PS. Unfortunately, the rep I spoke with didn't want to listen to the fact that I know others that have received their confirmation email and can see a date on the order status page within 12 hours or less.

    EDIT: Perhaps I've misunderstood other posts... Maybe the Order Status online does not receive a date until the order has been processed all the way through shipping it out. Anyone confirm or deny?

    Yes. If you preorder from BB you will not actually sign for an renew your new contract until after the phone comes in. Which will be after the 28th. So if you have unlimited you will lose it. When you preorder from VZW you agree to the new contract immediately. Locking in your unlimited
