My local Best Buy where I pre ordered just called and advises that their Sprint Rep just told them the phone is delayed for them till "sometime next week" which kinda sucks since at lunchtime they still believed they would have them tomorrow.

though don't Best Buy get shipments from Samsung not Sprint? So why would a sprint rep know about Best Buy's shipments?

Samsung does not pre load software for sprint so all Sprint phone go to their warehouse first so their software can be loaded. Then then are distributed by Sprint. So no, Best Buy does not receive their Sprint phones from Samsung. Sprint is making sure that their pre orders are filled first. Sprint controls who sales their phones and when. Not Samsung.

this is so dumb, sprint should serve the early birds who preordered when they just started. they MUST serve the needs of the customers. im gonna be so pissed if i can get this phone today from best buy.

all this uncertainty is fudging bulls*it....when apple says this is the release day- that IS the release day, no questions, no delay rumors, no actual delays (as far as im concerned). if samsung has phones, sell them today, making people wait will not make them happy. granted, what can we really do about it, im still going to buy the phone if i have to wait a week or 2... its bullsh*it, my friend.

Went through the same crap for different reasons with the EVO 4G LTE that I am now apparently going to go through with the SIII.

I have to keep remembering that this is simply circumstance and not Sprints fault...sort of.

Not saying that it is not true, because we all know that many businesses do really dumb stuff, but it seems horribly inefficient for Samsung to not just pre- load the carrier software rather than adding a step to the process and making the carriers do it...

Not sent from my Pre-Ordered Galaxy S3 as it is currently busy being taken to court by Apple, whose motto must now be "Don't innovate, just litigate"!

I don't have any info on this, but I agree. It wouldn't make sense that Samsung would design a phone with radios specifically for a carrier including things like an internal gsm card that differs from other US variants, but wouldn't load software before packaging and shipping. :confused:
