    I believe that according to Phonescoop, the AT&T version received FCC approval for the 4G LTE version on May 26th.

    Yes, engadget reported this on the 26th. Should be sooner, rather than later. And by sooner, I mean by end of June.

    Wonder if there is anybody on this site that is field testing the 4G LTE version for AT&T? If there are, could you chime in?

    Just guessing based upon a time window of a June 20-27 release which is based upon the TMO release date and Samsung goal to release within a month of the international release outside the US.

    Is June 20th the Magic Date for Unveiling Galaxy S3 in US? | Android Phones, Android Tablets, News, Tech, Gadgets And More, Thedroidguy

    Samsung Galaxy S3 to be unveiled on June 20 in New York?

    It seems like the June 20th date is gaining steam as more blogs and "leaks". Hopefully, AT&T will get on the ball and start pre-orders.

    No real new info here. Same NY tour date already talked about. So the question is just how this event correlates to launch.
    Promotional post-release event?
    Launch date announcement?
    Specs and future availability? (Last year this is what happened. Announced but no official dates)
    Maybe it will be "now available"

    I imagine they will want a preorder period to boost anticipation. So I am hoping they have a press release, start preorders, and have the tour start on release day.

    When I pre-ordered my wiife's i4s, it preceded the release by a week or two but it was four weeks after release that she got it from AT&T.

    I've learned a few things from pre-orders.


    1. You have to do it immediately after the pre-orders are announced (to get the first shipment)

    2. In some cases, people can walk into the store and get the phone while you're still standing in front of your house waiting for the UPS/FEDEX/USPS truck to come. Lol

    I heard from a ATT store rep that they still had not heard about pre-orders which probably means that they are coming soon.

    Can you preorder in store, right after announced? I don't even know if ATT takes preorders on non-iPhones. Don't believe they did for the SGSII.

    The AT&T reps told me that I had the choice to have the pre-order delivered to the store or my home.

    They did it for the HTC One X. I received an email about it from them.

    Some say being at the store early to purchase in person is faster. Given the potential demand, pre-orders would at least guarantee that you get one sooner once they sell the initial shipment out and that you do get one.

    I know some that preordered the OneX got it on the day before. They usually launch on sundays, and no delivery on Sundays. I went on the day the SGSII and Skyrocket launched. Both about an hour after they opened. No problems then, but I wonder if demand will be greater this time.

    That's a good point on the normal Sunday release. I'm paying full price. I'll just pre-order just in case. I can always return it when it gets delivered if its after Sunday

    Anybody here use the default google backup for contacts when switching Android phones? I know your google account automatically backs some of that up, right?

    I went from a SGSII to the Skyrocket, but they transferred sim card data in store. So, if I get the sgs3 delivered, the contacs should auto sync when I sign into my google account, right?

    With over 10 million pre-orders to date, it might be better to pre-order.

    Any guesses on what the price will be for the S3 on AT&T? $199?

    That's as good a guess as any. The HOX is $199 for the 16 GB. The GS3 may have the same with $249 for the 32 GB.

    So just in case the launch date is on a Sunday, I guess it would be better to have the pre order sent to the store vs home.
