    With over 10 million pre-orders to date, it might be better to pre-order.
    I don't see that being necessary. When I got the GSII at my AT&T store there were like, 3 people in line. No Android phone brings in big numbers, period. It was the same for the HOX.

    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?

    I use google to back up, dots out automatically.

    When I get a new phone or rom. O just log into my gmail account. In within 2 min all my contacts are back

    Pre-ordering gives you that sense of security though, that's the main reason why I pre-order all my phones if I can

    From what I understand, the GS3 is the most pre-ordered smartphone to date. That has to be more than the i4s.

    Is there any risk to pre order? Can you return a pre order?

    You would probably have to pay the $35 re-stock fee.

    All GSM phones have SIM cards. It also supports micro sd cards.

    I am guessing that we will be getting new 4G LTE SIM cards.

    It is a micro Sim. In store they usually insist on new cards, maybe to justify the "upgrade" fee. Think you may be able to use one from an iPhone and just swap them, but you still need to make sure your account is "provisioned" for LTE.
    If you get one delivered home, it will come with the new sim. You have to call and activate it by phone.
    That's where you would be able to use an existing sim card...if you have MicroSIM or willing to cut your own.

    I would have thought that the reps would know that LTE provisioning is necessary. Good tip.

    Ok, so as announced in the press release, available starting in June.
    Interestingly it says starting at $199. Best guess is 16gb-$199
    32 gb- $249.

    Now waiting for ATT to make exact date and pricing official .

    Will it be the rumored 20th?

    Why would you bump up this thread?

    BTW your article says nothing about a release date besides "the end of June or early July."

    AT&T Samsung Galaxy S 3
    With the delay of Verizon Galaxy S 3, we have to receive the gadget from AT&T first. AT&T is the second largest provider of 4G LTE service in the U.S right now. Though not comparable to Verizon, AT&T has better presence in many important parts and cities of the country. AT&T has also been a successful carrier for Samsung with a huge variety of devices including the last year’s Galaxy S 2.

    Regarding release date, the AT&T version of S 3 will only come in the third week of the month. “AT&T will not ship its Samsung Galaxy S 3 on the 18th of this month. Instead, citing a leaked retailer document, the wireless carrier will start shipping the new Samsung phone to stores and third-party retailers by the 21st of this month,” says Pop Herald.

    I used the same thread rather than create another one.

    Those guys don't know squat. They say that AT&T will not ship on the 18th BUT will ship "by the 21st". Many people have heard from various sources that AT&T will ship on the 18th and people will receive by the 21st.

    What is the source? Quotes pop herald, but didn't see this article there. No mention of ATT in the Canadian launch story there either.

    Ok, did find the quoted portion in a different story. Lists it as a rumor. Refers to rumors earlier in the week of shipping June 21st. Only stories I have seen ALL week suggesting this, were referring to preorders being told they would ship June 21st.

    I believe this is what he mentions, but most likely due to heavy volume of preorders. Of course it may take a little longer to ship preorders made later.
    Just saying take this info with a grain of salt.

    I am not saying it is a credible source just one that was posted very recently. The only date that counts is the official one from AT&T of which there has been nothing definite. The company has only referenced date ranges.

    Sorry to disappoint but there is no blood in the water for the accuracy police to have a feeding frenzy.
