    When will Samsung release what I called the "Google Edition" - unlocked model with all the radios for U.S. carriers built-in? Late time I think it was 6 months after release!

    It's going to be sometime in NoNever. The Google Play Edition program is dead.

    No trying to discredit,cast aspersions, or backtrack. I find it interesting that the PhoneArena article mentions a sales rep. That should have been a red flag. I might have fallen for the "sales rep" told me story. Then, a post form someone who has a friend who works at Samsung.

    Agree. Until we get official word I consider all of this just speculation.

    According to the Tech Times article, ATT and TMO are running a promotion until March 25 or 26. Guess we have a little longer to wait.

    The phone companies need extra time to load their unwanted bloat.

    Hope they go 40% lighter on the bloatware. We should be able to uninstall?

    I doubt the phone companies will go light...that's how they make part of their money on these phones.

    It's the release of a highly anticipated flagship device so why would a weekend out of the entire year be any different for new accounts and switchover issues.
    I think someone mentioned it earlier, but one big deal is the delivery of devices to people who pre-order. If the device doesn't release until Saturday, it will increase cost to do Saturday deliveries.

    The T-mobile stuff is generally uninstallable.

    This will be my first time buying a phone from a carrier in some time, but I actually want T-Mobile wifi callling enabled and available so I'll be buying it outright from them. If there is too much other bloat, hopefully I can root it and kill the other stuff while maintaining wifi calling.

    Same with Verizon. I'm sure it's the same with almost all carriers.

    It's been a bit since I've bought a new phone. I can't remember how Sprint has been with bloatware... I want to say it wasn't that bad when I bought my EVO LTE, but that could have changed...

    AT&T keeps sounding better and better. I hope more information is leaked about the S6 Active in the next couple weeks so I can decide whether to wait and switch to AT&T or just stick to Verizon and get the Edge.

    As I mentioned previously, when I pre-ordered the GS4 on AT&T, it arrived via FedEx the day before it released in stores.

    In Italy the S6 is being released on April 10th and the S6 Edge will be released on the 24th. I hope the delayed release isn't the same in the US. I know it's only an additional 2 week wait, but I'm already on the fence between the two and if my wife is rocking an S6 for 2 weeks while I still have my S3, I may go crazy.

    One nice thing though is that they are including a wireless charger if you preorder. Hopefully they'll do the same in the US.

    I think you'll manage. More concerned about pricing differential.

    I just realized I could probably use the regular S6 for a couple weeks to make sure it's fully optimized and configured properly before giving it to my wife coincidentally at the same time my Edge comes in the mail. I wouldn't want her to have to use an un-optimized phone.

    As far as pricing differential, isn't it pretty much already known? $200 for S6 and $300 for S6 Edge on contract. $700 and $850 off contract. Then $100 extra per storage upgrade most likely. Maybe if we're lucky only $50 increase for storage upgrade.

    There is a rhyme and a reason to product launches, and I am sure there are multiple marketing studies done by Samsung, the carriers, etc, as to release dates but rarely does anything release on a Saturday. If Samsung is going for the 10th in most of Europe, as it seems, I doubt they would push it back by a day in the US. The carriers would also have to foot the bill for Saturday delivery and there are some places were FedEx or UPS or the USPS don't do Saturday delivery. So unless Samsung is willing to let the carriers ship it early, in which case why not just let everyone have it on the 10th, a Saturday launch has more negatives then positives. They will sell the same about of S6's, if not more, by launching on Friday in any event.

    Regardless, it's just a day difference. Friday or Saturday, I'll just be happy to get one.

    Was at Best Buy this weekend.
    The samsung dude said they are taking Pre Orders the 27th of this month.
    The preorder cost 50.00 and goes on a gift card.
    Said they are suppose to release them like April 10.

    He said they got rid of the SD card because it works on draining the battery and will slow the phone down.
    They come out with a new battery.
    A new hard drive .
    And new memory.
    And a new processor.
    Alll which are faster than what is in the Samsung Galaxy S5 by like 4 times faster.
    Said he couldn't tell me how much anything was gonna cost.

    Would of learned more but a lady kept coming and interrupting the samsung man over and over.
    And I was there before her.
    I just about blew my top.
    Wait your turn.

    Thanks for the tip. Coincidental that AT&T promotion ends the day before?
