    Got my 32GB Blue today, just after 2:00. Been playing with it all evening. 4G here has been less than spectacular here. Seems to be doing better in 3G mode. Upgraded from an OG Droid.

    My wife got her 16gb white today. Verizon was much earlier than than they said. Im trying to get her to trade me for my Razr Maxx...
    Though the battery died pretty fast. But if she takes my phone, the battery last forever. And Ill take the S3 and buy a few extra batteries on ebay.:biggrin:

    Got mine yesterday...had 4 cases for it and a phantomskinz waiting for me.

    The cheap Chinese case isn't bad, but not good either... the Diztronic case is excellent BUT it was scrunching up the screen protector... so I am using the Kay's case which is nice but doesn't quite feel as nice as the Diztronic, but it doesn't interfere with the screen protector.

    I'll let the screen protector cure, then put the Diztronic back on.

    She is looking for a case right now. I think the flip top cases are the best, but she wants a bling case. Ebay and Amazon are to hard to use. She will see one she likes, but the quality isnt there.

    No kidding! its really dark! I spent 15 minutes looking for the control widget and couldnt find it. (the bar with the wifi, gps, brightness control etc)
    I had to go to settings to make the screen brighter. But if I set it now, the screen will look black outside. At least with the widget I have it on my home page so that I can just tap that spot till I see the screen.

    The default brightness is set really, really low. It actually changes from app to app (the browser is known to switch the brightness back down to low), so you might have to mess around with it a bit.

    It wasnt easy but, I have mine. I called Fed Ex Sunday and asked them to make sure the driver leaves it at my leasing office because I would be at work. The csr told me that it would be delivered before 3pm on Tuesday and was possible, So im tracking everything from my Droid X and im also watching the battery die. All day long its on schedule around 2:40 the tracking info shows a problem with delivery. Im thinking the driver came to my door and sees that im not home, his next move will be the leasing office and everything would be ok. The driver couldn't deliver so he took it back to the sort facility, thankfully I live close, I go there and finally get my phone after I convince the Fed Ex person that that package really belongs to me even tho it has someone elses name on it....I ended up having to scramble and rush over to VZW to get a sim card minutes before they closed. It wasnt pretty but, I have it and it was worth it.

    As was mine and my husband's. We had a little cardboard packet tucked inside of our red VZW booklet. Maybe yours fell out or something during packing? Strange.

    Yes, Check your red booklet for the SIM. If there is not one there then just go to a VZW store and they will give you one for free.

    I like the fact that they came out with a developer S3 but since it is not selling through Verizon it is going to be harder to sell the normal S3 at the price you will want for it.
