    I just talked to a good friend who is a salesman for AT&T wireless and he said they only get a week notice from AT&T before they get a new phone. The notice is because they get an email or soem communication from Corporate that the phone has shipped to them. He didn't have a date yet for the S3.

    This isn't true. AT&T doesn't provide any information to stores or sales reps. Android Central, Engadget, and The Verge will have info posted before My CSP ever has any information about an upcoming device. By the time a sales rep sees an email or a posting about new info, it's already all over the tech blogs.

    If you're wondering about something, and you can't find it online, posting on a forum won't find you the answer.

    Just pre-order and get it over with. Think ripping a Band-Aid off quickly.

    You need to realize what I am saying and what this thread is about. It is about a demo phone and when it will be in the store. It is 100% accurate as I typed it. I don't know when BB, RS or other retailers get their demos but I do know how the AT&T stores gets their demo phones. Quit trying to act like you know everything and read before you type.

    The reason I posted is because I DO know everything about the topic. I'm not claiming something that my buddy told me. I'm telling you what I know to be true. AT&T doesn't notify anyone for when to expect their demos. They just show up with the manager's name on the box. That's all the notice they get. Exactly zero.

    I know differently and we aren't going to agree obviously so I'm done. Think what you want and I'll do the same.

    anothernewphone is actually right. My friend is a store manager at ATT. I've been asking him for awhile when the SG3 was coming out. The news hit The Verge, before he even know it.

    Also, he said they won't get a demo model in until only a few days before the launch.

    Well i was hoping a display model would be available uber early like the HTC oneX but so far nothing.. I've resorted to calling all the carrier stores in my area every day since the pre orders have begun...
