    I went to BB today to buy my wife an SIII (they were on sale for $100 today). While there I asked about it and no one knew anything about a date. One guy said that AT&T's was coming out on Nov. 9th so he guessed Sprint's would out around the same time. But obviously it was just a guess.

    I actually had "bought up" - paid $100 in order to become eligible for an upgrade, but ended up using that eligibility for my wife's SIII. I'll then take then pay a second time to get my line eligible again. I was thinking that if it doesn't come out until November (less than a week away at this point), then it's possible my cost will go down from $100 to $75. Nothing huge, but it almost covers an activation fee if they do charge that - they didn't charge me for one for the SIII. I just hope that it doesn't shoe up in BB stores in the next 3 or 4 days, as it will be hard to resist waiting another 3 days for the potential of saving $25 - which I don't even know is going to happen, just a guess!

    For sprint? I just got dressed and ran outside so I would have enough cell signal to order it, but it's still showing as preorder only :-(

    Yes Sprint. You have to order it with a computer. My S3 wouldn't show the right availability status.

    Titanium. They had white too. Make sure your phone has flash and the web client is on desktop. Also make sure you're not on their mobile site.

    Good call Manny. I have to go the BB route because I thought I was so smart when I cashed in some Marriott reward points for a $200 BB gift card. I have some RZ dollars too. I suppose it also give the Samsung a chance to weed out any issues. I bought my current EVO 4g three weeks after launch and it has been bullet proof.

    Too bad your taste in phones does not extend to cars. LOL Mustangs woooo!
    I like some of the new Mustangs, don't like the older slow poke body style (like the 99 to 2005). You might like my Camaro....when it idles, it never sits still (big cam), adjustable exhaust from going through the exhaust to almost open headers, and some big *** tires in the back (315/35/17s). Anyways.... slightly off topic I guess.

    Page doesn't look any different from before. Estimated arrival time is still reading as just "preorder" for me.

    Maybe it's different based on location for some reason. Anyway, if it actually says you'll receive it on Oct. 29, I wonder if that means that it will also be in stores starting that day?

    Shucks, just got an email saying it's now on backordered status. Should have the phone Nov. 7-16. Crap. Oh well, at least I'm in the system I guess.

    Well ****! I'm going to guess that's when the stores will get them then. I wonder if the sprint stores will get a restocking shipment at all...
