For the past month apparently Verizon has been trying to incentivize midwesterners to move from a 3g to 4g phone by giving a $50 rebate. But it wouldn't apply to preorders so we figured we'd wait until the phone comes out and see if they have another promotion in July like that.
But the rep there showed us an Incredible 4G that is coming out next week with beats audio and a "normal sized" screen, if anyone wants an alternative to the big screens... only $150
My order is shipping, will be here on Thursday!

Thanks for the neg Apple loser
Who's your carrier?
Now knowing what 1995 is like all over again! Thank you 247 technology!!
Why the #@$@#$ did mine ship now with a delivery estimate of the 9th?!?!?!?!?!
As is mine. Tracking # shows it landed about a half hour away from me last night at 10pm... Thursday it should be waiting for me.
Ok...who is your carrier? Sprint or are these Verizon?
I'm on Verizon, broseph.
I'm on AT&T. Ordered on a Sunday night, so it didn't process until Monday. Shipped out Tuesday and arrived in CO last night around 10pm according to the tracking information. Today is a holiday, so tomorrow it'll arrive.
Clowns at the AT&T store still don't know shit about it. Said they don't even know when they'll be getting them in stock at the store and they tell me "yea shipping it will take at least 10 days". It took 3 if you take out the Holiday factor.
That's both awesome and shitty for me. I still show a 7/11 ship date. Hopefully everything moves up. I guess its only a week more that I have to put up with the droid X. Can't wait to get away from motorola.
Do yourself a favor and get some TecTiles for your GSIII. They are really cool.
My problem is I'm sticking them everywhere...
What is that, a Titleist? A hole in one...
Got my phone on my break. Holy shit it's awesome. Suck it, RAZR
yeah at the verizon store they don't know anything either. They've had the Incredible 4G for a couple weeks to mess around with (not on shelves but the employees themselves) but they don't know when the store will get samsungs or when they'll get to test one or when they will ship...
Yep. I haven't even gotten to play with it very much yet, but I love it already. I actually like the size. The metal bezel is nicer than I expected, the back plastic is sort of thin but not a big deal. SUPER FAST. Coming from my Atrix, this thing just opens whatever you click instantly. I bought a clear case at Best Buy because the camera looks to be the furthest thing out and I want to elevate it above whatever surface my phone is on. $30 - rip off but I didn't want to wait for something to ship and risk scratching or something.
RCMB looks great on it!

I was thinking about geting the white one and getting a dark green case, so that it would be mostly green with a white boarder on the front..
Is it gay for a guy to get the white one?
There's a time and a place for everything and it's called college.
White looks better. More options for black cases too.
They are little tiny microchips inside of little stickers. They work with NFC and you can program them to do all sorts of awesome stuff just by waving the phone over them.
I have one on my nightstand, when I put my phone on it, it automatically sets my alarm for the morning. I have one in the car to sync with my Bluetooth speaker and turn WIFI off to save battery.
If you were in an office you could program your contact info in one and people could get your "card" by waving their phone at it.
They can be programmed to change settings, launch programs, all sorts of stuff. They can be reprogrammed over and over or you can "lock" them. I'm just getting started playing with them but they are really cool.
I saw some at an AT&T today but I think you might have to grab them online since they are so new.
Can more people actually talk about how they like the phone for the ones strongly considering it. I was originally gung ho about getting one, but then I read some less than stellar reviews. Give me the scoop RCMB....
I was all set to get the Razr Maxx but the S3 really has me questioning my decision.
Be careful who is writing the reviews. There are apple fanboys who write reviews for all the phones. I also stop reading a lot of reviews if they are comparing an iPhone 4 to a SG3. Everything I have read has been a pretty decent review, and some of the things that aren't getting great reviews I'm really nto sure I would use anyway. I really think the whole sharing pictures with other G3's is stupid and pointless. If it can transfer files the same way though, that might be helpful, but again you would have to know someone else with the S3, hopefully they wouldn't have to also be on the same network.
Mine is still getting a ship date of the 11th. I'll let you know how well Angry Birds looks on it. I'll also try to stream a movie to see how that is.
What are your questions or concerns? Its been great so far.
When it comes to tech reviews, the buck stops with The Verge. You don't need to go anywhere else.
When will it get Jelly Bean?
I mostly agree with this. Looks like it gave the S3 a B+....8.5/10.
