    We are in the single digits!
    How do you figure? The phone is out on the 30th.

    That's double digits according to my math.

    EDIT: I just saw this:

    Samsung Galaxy S4 - Verizon Wireless Samsung Galaxy S4

    I'm not above switching carriers!
    You gotta do what ya gotta do. I've done it 4 times to get the phone I want. I don't have time to wait on these carriers.. . . Nor their updates.

    If I could get the discount at AT&T that my employer has with Verizon, I'd be gone - IF Verizon forgoes the 32gb.

    I never understood what's so difficult about offering more space. It can't be that hard.

    Still doesn't make sense. The 32gb costs $50 more in street price but only pennies more to manufacture. It's stupid. No phone should come with 16gb when memory is that cheap.

    Crossing my fingers for an early release. My husband pre-ordered one, and I need to be able to train him on it before I have surgery on the 31st.

    Hopefully that's correct! I'm excited to get my phone and dump my old broken iPhone 4!

    I will only believe it when either the preorder status page changes to reflect a new date or I get a tracking number saying the phone has shipped.

    I think they decide what phone spec is to be dominant (16GB) and put most of their production into it. They probably only have one line making the 32GB and have to stop it to change carrier bloat settings and logos.

    Mine has been changed too. I just hope it arrives on that date and not ships on that date like it says.

    mine changed as well also the pre order page has been changed to reflect the 5/23 date and not 5/30. how many others will do what im prepared to do? if my phone doesn't ship by 5/21 that nite for the 2day shipping {cause theres no overnite on a preorder} I will mostly definitely cancel the preorder and buy in store that Thursday. considering im paying full retail anyway if I buy in store I can least pay half now and break up the rest with their new full retail payment plan. im on an individual nationwide 450 with unlimited would it be cheaper to add the ghost line and buy the phone? if the phone has a 350 etf fee and it costs 199 to buy why are full retail peeps still paying 100 more??

    I talked to Verizon and they told me that etf cancels your whole account, so you lose everything. including your phone number, they also told me i wouldn't be able to get back my number unless i switched to a different carrier. Their words not mine.

    That is correct. When you do the ETF, your account is closed and the number is held in abeyance for 59 days. If you port to another carrier, you can keep the number. Once you terminate, you loose whatever grandfathered plan (if you have one) you were using. After the 59 days, the number is available for re-use.

    Verizon reps don't know much. I chatted with a rep and he said that preorders will be delivered after the 23rd which i suspected but he said that the S4 will be available in stores on the 30th. I guess he didn't read the tweet from Verizon lol

    VZW is the worse of all the carriers with their ETF.

    I ordered mine from Target and it says they will begin shipping orders on the Verizon Wireless official launch date.

    Oh yea, now that I look at Newegg it says the same thing (it's Simplexity too). I'm glad it's next business day shipping by FedEx, as I leave out of town on the 25th and was worried I'd miss the FedEx guy.

    How are they worse? AT&T (I know for fact) does the same thing. Never used T-Mobile or Sprint so I don't know about them.
