    You may be better off getting it straight from Verizon when it releases. Best Buy has been crappy at having new devices in stock on release day.

    I'm feeling your pain - I'm trying not to get my hopes up with Verizon and a 32gb version. If they don't release one, I may just stick with my S3 until I see what the Note 3 is all about.

    It doesn't really bother me about only having 16GB. I don't use my phone as an mp3 player and I'm not a gamer so aside from ring tones, pics, videos, and the few apps i have, i have enough space. I know this isn't the case for everyone. I didn't think higher GB version phones didn't sell considering so many people want them

    Thank you Captain Buzz Kill! I can wait a few extra days to save the $50....you can actually use the $50 gift card on the purchase itself....and they'll do pre-orders I'm sure. But yeah, I'm just rationalizing a little.

    At least you have the S3. My phone loves restarting itself whenever it feels like it. In the middle of a call? Reboot. Perusing the forums? Reboot. Oh... did I just reboot? I'd better reboot.

    Sorry for your issues but that made me chuckle. I think the S3 I have now is the longest I've ever kept a phone. My name is Joe and I'm a self confessed phone w h o r e. I get tired of a device and need something else....it's an addiction!

    If the end user had a true 16GB to use, then I'm all for it. Now since I don't have one per se, I can only go by what others are reporting - about 9gb user space. Then there are updates to the software, you add apps, etc.....I'd rather hold out for a 32gb. It would be a mistake (my opinion) for Verizon not to release one.

    Doesn't really matter since you don't get the 50 mail in rebate. It comes to the same price. I had the 50 off too but went with Verizon because the price would be the same.

    Yea i hear you. But even when I had the 16GB S3 with all my apps i never dropped below 7GB. All my pictures and ring tones were all on my 32GB sd card. Now the stuff on my sd card took up like 20GB of space. Its too bad the option to delete bloatware is gone too replaced with just disabling it :thumbdown: i read on another thread that someone was told by a sales rep at costco (or Sams Club can't remember which) that it would be released the 24th...fingers crossed lol

    FYI I'm a phone w h o r e too lmao

    If it makes you feel better, Samsung may issue a software update before you get your S4. If some of the bugs get fixed before you even get your phone, you'll definitely appreciate it.

    And who knows what other bombshells Google will drop on us with future versions of Android. Similar to the restriction of apps since Ice Cream Sandwich.

    "Attention Android consumers effective immediately all videos and music will be restricted to internal memory ...." oh right.

    Maybe later but when it's first launched they have the same prices. Sprint is offering theirs for 249 with a 50 rebate just like Verizon but BB is selling it for 249 without the rebate. I was bummed by this too because the best buy gift card comes with no real savings now.

    I hate Verizon, always the last ones to release phones. It's all their fault we have to wait for the bootloader unlock to be released....

    Oh well, I guess at least if i go with Best Buy I can get an instant $50 off as opposed to waiting for a rebate...

    My upgrade is available next Wednesday. Do you think I'd get the phone faster if I add my name to the preorder waitlist on Wednesday or if I don't do that and just go to the store when it opens on launch day?

    Yeah only reason why I went with Verizon is cause I got the rebate instantly cause of my corporate discount. You gotta wonder if Verizon kinda planned this. There's nothing but upside to them bringing the mail in rebate back.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm still using my first smart phone I've ever owned (a Motorola Droid 3). It is almost two years old, and starting to show its age. It is very slow, takes ages to open an app, won't make calls (usually), and sometimes when I go to text, it will not put the characters into the texting field. There are a more problems, but I just learn to deal with them. Plus it never gets any more updates, and I'm still rocking android 2.3.4.

    My contract was up April 30th, and I was so stoked to see that that was the time that the S4 was suppose to be released. And I waited and waited to see the official release date, with most carriers confirming a date around there. And then Verizon confirmed their date.. a month later... Now I have to deal with my Droid 3 for another month while Verizon is busy loading their Bloatware and etching their logo on my S4.

    But on the plus side, it gives me a month to read reviews about it and see if it is as good as everyone is making it out to be. As well, I can see what Google has in store, if they announce the Motorola X phone at I/O this month. Or perhaps an LTE NExus 4 that will work with Verizon. At this point, any phone will be a HUGE upgrade over my current one

    Ok so this may not mean anything and I'm probably being super hopeful and/or reading too much into nothing but i was doing my daily stalking of verizon (hanging my head in shame...lol) and i noticed that when i first pre ordered the S4 my upgrade eligibility was still in tact for a few days up until i checked my verizon account the other day. Now my upgrade has been used obviously but now my account says so....it reflects it and says I've recently purchased a phone that needs to be activated. Also and again this is just my obsessive want of my phone but when i checked about the S4 when you click on the pre order button before there was a red circle with the shipping date of May 30th now thats gone. There is no expected shipping date when you go through the process of pre ordering. I don't know if its just Web page error or wishful thinking on my part. Damn it verizon I'm going nuts lol
