    I just spoke with a Verizon customer service rep at the 800 number becuase I never got a confirmation email (wrong addy on file...ugh) and she said they would be shipping on the 21st....preorders should be in our hands on the 23rd

    UGH!!! I was going to preorder it today after work. Would it be pointless for me to do so now?
    I'm sure you will be able to pick one up at a local Verizon store on the 23rd. I'm still holding out hopes for 32GB news by the 23rd.

    Just called the biggest Verizon store around here and the counter monkey said he would have the 16GB & 32GB S4's in on the 23rd. I hope he is right.

    Not worth buying with only 16GB!!!!
    I hear you on that. I have my fingers crossed for the 32GB.
    Is there a slot for external storage? I mean, 16 GB is fine for us that don't overload the phone w/ a ton of stuff.

    So while it might not be worth buy for yourself, others would disagree. I can see why 16 GB would be a problem for some though.
    Yup, SD Card expansion is available for media. As long as you're not heavy into HD games (since they take up a ton of app space), then in most cases you should be fine with 16GB.

    Same here says the 23rd. Excitement grows everyday.

    For me I used my sister in laws upgrade. I gave her cash as a incentive plus I paid the upgrade price. Since she had no plans for a phone anyway we both benefited. So when it arrives I have to activate it on her line then immediately switch her back to her iPhone. Then activate the gs4 on my line. Good thing she lives close or I would have a panic attack waiting to pick it up. Lol.

    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

    I asked the guy that first stated the new date of 5/23 (@VZWken) about the preorders. This is what he replied: #Verizon customers who preordered before 5/13 will get it on or before 5/23 & be notified by email that it has shipped

    Not to fault the reps so much as Verizon itself. Most major companies have little regard or concern to make sure info is passed down the channels.
    I used to "love" having a customer inform me of "something they read" only to find it true.
    I wasn't with Verizon but, they're all not too different.

    I was at Best Buy the other day and they have a Galaxy area set up in there. The BB employee told me they didn't make a 32gb S3! WTF are they getting training on? I had to physically show him the storage setting on the phone in order for him to believe me. And to top it off, he didn't know a 32gb S4 had been released through AT&T. Good gawd.

    How much does he know about the 32GB Version model?

    For some, perhaps...but for many (including me) 16GB is fine as long as I have SD support. I couldn't care less about games and rarely install them. If you do, then I sympathize since I don't think a 32GB version will be available for a while, if at all. Still though, I don't think the blanket statement that it's "not worth buying" is true at all.

    ditto here.

    I can't believe you guys are still shocked and complaining about how clueless carrier and store reps are.
    Dating way back to dumb phones, they never knew a thing. You are better off not even asking.

    My last pre-order went that way, once they shipped, they charged.

    No change on my account though....yet. Now I'm going to be frantically refreshing my status page and credit card haha thanks....
