    Previously, Verizon promised they would start pre-orders for their version of the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 6th, and they have made good on that promise. You can head over to Verizon and setup a preorder for the SGS3 flagship now. The device is $199.99 for the 16GB version & $249.99 for the 32GB version. Don't forget to click directly to Verizon with the source link we provided below to get yours. Here's a quick refresh of some of the most interesting hardware features of this amazing new tech:
    • 4.8" 720p Super AMOLED display
    • 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU
    • 2GB RAM
    • Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich)
    • 8MP rear Camera (with a host of amazing features)
    • 1.9MP front
    • Gorilla Glass 2
    • 2100mAh battery
    • 4G LTE
    Oddly, even though the Sprint & T-Mobile version will supposedly be coming June 21st, the Verizon website says their version will come "ship by" July 9th. That's a big window and seems to confirm a previous rumor we shared. Still, "ship by" doesn't necessarily mean "ship on", so perhaps it will come sooner.

    They sure did and I preordered my 16gb Pebble Blue SIII at 7am this morning PST. Seriously, I am so excited. What an odd thing to get excited over. Maybe I have an unexciting life. :p

    Just pre ordered over the phone. 16gb blue. I was able to dodge the upgrade fee of $30.00 and keep my unlimited data plan. I have never been one to pre order a cell or buy a brand new device. I figured why not. I'm hoping for an extended battery with a case like otter box that fits!

    Is it better to preorder online or at a store?

    I pre ordered via customer service. I always have bad luck in a store and I wasn't going to pay the $30.00 upgrade fee.

    Is it possible to pre-order at retail pricing?

    I can't upgrade till August, you think I would be eligible for an early upgrade and they'd let me pre order this?

    How did you dodge the $30? I upgraded online so there wasn't anyone to talk to. I did however see it let me keep my unlimited plan.

    I upgraded by calling customer service. My account has been with vzw for 10 yrs or more. I asked if they will waive the fee. They said OK. If they said no I was going to close my account that has 3 lines
