    I've officially pre-ordered mine. Well, that depends on in what context you use "officially".

    That is to hit the retail stores (maybe sooner). The pre-orders start tomorrow, and I would suspect that the first SGS4s will be in-hand within two weeks. It will take longer to get stock to stores.

    From past experiences I am terrified by smartphone preorders.

    Statistically, it seems at least 7 out of every 10 phones have MASSIVE problems upon release that do nothing but lead to bad reviews and disappointed buyers. From Android to Apple to Windows and Blackberry.....I've just had my heart broken too many times. I say this only as a cautionary tale. Maybe the S4 will be the first phone in years to have a flawless release.

    ...but probably not. So as I suggested in another thread it's probably best to wait 4-5 months before purchase. Of course it's your money and will be a killer phone, just speaking from multiple personal experiences. And what I've read/heard from others. And look at my list, you'll see I DID INDEED have a Bionic that I got on day 1.

    Basically, you login to your Verizon online account and select upgrade. It will give you an option to select the SGS4 after 8AM EST tomorrow. Once you add it to the cart you can pay for it. The base price is $249, and you have to put it on a credit card. You can't bill pre-orders to your account.

    It was just laying on my desk when I came to work like three weeks ago. I thought it was odd too, but hey, who am I to question the phone gods?

    Verizon's official answer on when the SGS4 will be delivered:

    OK, I just talked to the sales channel and their official answer was that the global launch date for all channels is May 30. So, if you pre-order today your phone should ship on May 28th. Basically, it's a little over a month before VZW customers will have the device in-hand, no matter how you go about getting it. I know that's not what everyone wants to hear, sorry! :(

    Considering pre-ordering today, but I wanted to get the advice of those who do this type of thing frequently...

    I'm due for an upgrade on May 13th. My mom's line is upgrade eligible now (and has been for nearly 3 years.) She wants a free iPhone 4, I'm most likely switching to the S4. What's the best route to take? Transfer her upgrade to my line, pre-order now, then give her my upgrade when I come up May 13th? (Keep in mind, my line that comes up on the 13th is the "early" upgrade mark, not the full 24 months), or just wait out my line and pre-order in May?

    Preordered for my girlfriend this morning at 8:03ET, she's excited but I'm nervous for a bonky release. For $300 I hope not...which makes me wonder how Mandy got it for $199. They charged me $199+$50 mail in + $30 upgrade fee + tax which rounded out to $300.xx which put her at $96.98/mo payments for the 2gig plan. :blink:

    You can't actually pre-order a phone if your contract date hasn't expired. Some time ago Verizon stopped offering the early upgrade program. Specifically, you now have to be completely expired to be able to upgrade. There is an exception to this in which you can call in to Customer Service and IF you have exceptional payment history, and established service then they can send you a new phone a little early. With this program you still can't do a pre-order phone.

    Hugh,

    You're right, it's $249 with a $50 mail in rebate, unless you do the $299 phone+accessory bundle, then you get the $50 rebate instantly. No matter what there is a $30 upgrade fee. Now, while that does suck all carriers have it now, including AT&T, which is actually $38.

    Sorry for the confusion, hope that helps.

    I technically got my first one free several weeks ago. :p I had to pay for the second two!
