    [Update]
    If you Pre-order the Galaxy SIII From Verizon, you get to keep your unlimited data plan according to Droid-Life



    As a follow-up to eDogNights excellent find yesterday regarding the Samsung Galaxy S III's official announcement for five U.S. carriers, we have a Verizon specific Galaxy S III story. Thanks to several tipsters, including bp328i and Caesars, the Galaxy S III will be available for preorder on Big Red on June 6th. The price is also nice. The phone will only run $199.99 on a new two-year contract (many of us expected $250 to $300). It's almost here folks!

    Make sure to hit up the Verizon source link below to preorder yours!

    Wow, I'm surprised by the price. However, just so that you know, the price is actually $199.99 + $30.00 (device upgrade fee) = 229.99. :biggrin:

    I can't wait for this, unfortunately I'm not eligible for an upgrade until November... I'm debating paying retail price for this.

    Does anyone know what expected battery life will be? It will be tough leaving the razr maxx with such great battery life. I know galaxy has smaller, but is it possible to run more efficient?

    Wonder if it being released on all carriers forced the $199 price or if the $299 price point was not as successful. With these specs it would be hard to justify any phone at the $299 price, unless it is like the note. I am due for an upgrade soon, and this might be it. I was hoping there would be more information out on the Vanquish by now.

    So, I will be able to renew my contract with unlimited data if I order it soon, right?

    Also, does anyone know if it will only be available in white initially? I was looking forward to buying the blue one.

    Come payday, June 25...I will buy either this phone or the Droid Fighter if it is out. I'm leaning towards the Galaxy, because its screen is 4.8" vs 4.6" for the Fighter/HD. Either one will be a sweet upgrade from the Droid X.

    Does preordering keep the verizon clerk from getting their commission? I always deal with the same woman and I don't want her to lose it?
