Currently unable to upgrade my Fascinate. It's not available for upgrade, but i have an upgrade available on a 4G Jetpack. When I go through the Pre-Order pages, it won't let me transfer the upgrade from the jetpack to my fascinate. It won't let me even upgrade the jetpack line to the SGS3.
When i login to my account, I am able to "transfer upgrade" but then the SGS3 is not available on that list of devices for me to upgrade to.
Called *611 and they too were unable to upgrade from their end. I currently have to wait until 8am EDT for the TeleSales/Internet Support to open and see what they can do for me @ 800-256-4646.
Glad to see that a few of you are getting your orders in. Sad to see the confirmation of July 9th, especially with news from AT&T that they are shipping 3 days earlier than others on June 18th.
just placed an order for the 16GB white. I had to pay full retail price in that I'm not available for an upgrade until next April... The good news, I guess, is that i should be able to sell it next year for at least half of what I paid for it and then upgrade to the S4 using my upgrade discount.
as of 6:55am CST, the device is now listed in the regular Device List of Verizon Wireless.com... thus, I'm now able to go through MyAccount to transfer the upgrade, rather than the pre-order page.
Update 7:00am CST. Well, after selecting the SGS3 from myAccount upgrade device, it just redirects me to the pre-order pages where I get the message: "xxx-xxx-xxxx - This line cannot be upgraded at this time. Buddy line is hotlined." whatever that means.. Calling internet support now.
Final Update 7:50am CST - Finally got the Tele-Sales department to successfully get the order submitted. She read off quite a bit of small print, including statements to the effect of, "Please ensure that someone is at home on July 10th to receive shipment since signature is required.", and "Your card will not be billed until the phone is shipped on July 9th". From her wording it definitely sounded as though they had no plans on shipping it sooner than the 9th. It may just be a bunch of legal CYA, and I too am hoping for them to ship out sooner.
Since it said ship BY, I'd assume that means no later than July 9th with the possibility of it shipping slightly earlier. Either way, it should get to you before the 12th as stated above assuming those dates don't get pushed back.
