Verizon Galaxy S3 Pre-orders Shipping or Arriving as Early as July 5? (Updated)

If you pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 from Verizon, you can check your order status to find out your expected shipping date. For many of us, the date shows as 7/9, but for some it could be 7/10 or even 7/11. With a launch date now set for July 10, some of you have already mentioned being a bit put off by the idea that you may not receive yours until the day after the phone is made available.

Well, what if they started shipping long before then? According to Verizon, some pre-orders could arrive as early as July 5, this Thursday. We have no idea if this means all, some or just a handful of lucky pre-orderees, but that should make at least a few of you happy. Post-4th of July present?

Be sure to let us know if you receive a notification that your device has shipped.

Update: Β Customers are starting to receive shipment notifications with an arrival date of July 6.Β 

Cheers Eugene!

  • Brian

    Ordered on 6/27 at 11pm just before cutoff for unlimited. Order on Fedex vehicle for delivery. Finally!!

  • Steve

    Ordered 6/27 16GB Blue just shipped from Westchester PA due in Orlando in 2 days.

  • antoine

    preordered on 06/30, a 1 blue and 1 white 16 gigger. pending transaction with bank just showed up now. thank goodness cuz this droid x is puttering out.

  • Eagerly awaiting S3

    i just got my tracking number. Ordered on 6/27. It was shipped Saturday and Fedex has no info. I take it that means I have to wait until Tuesday as Fedex will not pick up until tomorrow?

  • wheres my S3?

    On my order status I am now showing a block for a tracking number and courier. No tracking number appears yet. Does that mean it is getting ready to ship or that it shipped already? Anyone else have this. I ordered late on the 26th. Thanks

    • Jon

      After reading your post I rechecked my order status and I have the same new block as you. No # there yet, but I’ll take it as a positive sign.

      • wheres my S3?

        I just got email from Verizon that it was shipped. Since today is Sunday going out tomorrow. Unfortunately it is 2 day Fedex so I wont get until Wednesday but whats another day…… I was under impression that it ships next day.

      • Ethan

        I’m in the same boat as you- it’s been like that for a couple days now. No email yet, but I’m assuming it means they’ve processed the order. 16GB blue, PO 6/10.

        **EDIT** 15 minutes later, I get my email. I have a tracking # from FedEx (not up in system yet) and my order status now changed from “Ships by 07/09/2012” to “07/05/2012” so I’m assuming, with 2 day service, it’ll arrive tomorrow.

  • johnno

    Having a heart attack I pre ordered the s3. Got a email today saying order being processed payment not taken will take 1-3 days to process which I guess is okay. However when I check status it says expected ship date 7-19 I flipped called Verizon apperantly it is just a mistake and will ship 7-9 so don’t freak out if this happens to you atleat yet.

  • Volleyball

    Mine just shipped! Arriving MOnday!

  • YES!! i was super late in the pre-ordering, i ordered the 21st of june! but my CC has just been charged, and like many others, when i go to verizons “check my order status” or whatever, it now shows some empty courier and tracking number fields! YES! i could have this sucker by monday! i was sad, since as of 5 hours ago it was still telling me that it was probably gonna ship out the 11th. SO STOKED.

  • Shea

    I have a question for you guess that have gotten your verizon Samsung galaxy s3 does it come with a micro sd card? Verizon has always given one with my previous devices just wanted to see if that had changed or if I need to buy one before my phone arrives Monday.

    • achaff86

      No it doesn’t or at least mine didn’t….

      • Shea

        Thanks! I hate that I wonder why? All my other phones have came with one from Verizon

        • achaff86

          Your welcome!! When I pre ordered the gs3 the guy told me there was one but when I got it there wasn’t.. but, it wasn’t a big deal for me… I had a 32gb micro sd card laying around anyways

  • Mine arrived today and I’m using it now

  • achaff86

    Just received my gs3 from FedEx!!

    • Jay

      You got your shipping confirmation stuff yesterday right?

      • achaff86

        Yes

        • Jay

          Got all my confirmation stuff this morning…pretty stoked.

          • achaff86

            I haven’t activated it yet, or even turned it on its been charging … my grandfather comes first though so later tonight I’ll get to mess with it

  • Shea

    Yippee they took my money this morning!!! I ordered 32gb white version on June 17.

    • Jay

      Same here! πŸ™‚

      • Shea

        Yeah ! I got my email and tracking number and according to FedEx it will be here by 4:30 Monday. The thing I don’t understand is it says standard overnight delivery so why won’t I get it tomorrow?

        • Shea

          Oh never mind I just saw where u said standard overnight doesn’t deliver on Saturday. That sucks!

    • Same here. Problem is that we will have to wait till after the weekend since standard overnight doesn’t deliver on Saturday.

      • Jay

        It may deliver on Saturday.FedEx website said they do deliver on Saturdays.

        • Ethan

          Yep, Saturday delivery with FedEx costs the shippers extra money. I don’t think Verizon wants to pay more than they need to. We’ll just have to wait πŸ™‚

        • They only deliver Saturday if they take priority shipping which my tracking number does not say. Most likely we have the cheapest overnight shipping which doesn’t deliver Saturday. I am hoping that FedEx will have the package by tomorrow and just decide to bring it anyway.

          • Jay

            I agree, but who are we kidding, that will never happen πŸ™‚

  • Cheekypotatoes

    I wasnt able to pre order online for some reason so i went to the verizon store on the 9th of june and pre ordered it there. They said they will call but they havnt contacted us yet . So my dad called them, and they said that none of the phones will be getting shipped till the 10th. So i told my dad no thats wrong some were already being shipped and i got so mad at verizon.

  • Got my confirmation number last night about 11pm, will be here tday by 4:30

  • KSoriano32

    i am so frustrated with fedex my phone has not moved in 2 days and their located 2 hours from my house

    • Javis Sullivan

      go pick that bitch up!

  • Javis Sullivan

    Shipped this morning at 0330 this morning. Ordered pebble blue 16gb 6/12.

  • Ordered 6 – 12 just got shipping information. Delivery for the 9th.

  • Ethan

    Ok, so my preorder page changed from the standard “Ship by 7/9/12” and now lists my order number and has the tracking/courier/ship by section, but no tracking # or courier. Does this mean my order is moving along, or am I just getting false hope?

    • alby91a

      mine changed like that when they charged my cc earlier this evening. i just now received my shipping email. i would say your order is moving along.

  • Jason

    Ordered 32GB Pebble Blue on 6/6 @7:40PM. Received tracking number Thurs afternoon for delivery Friday afternoon.

  • Ordered 16gb Blue on the 27th and just got an email saying it has shipped and will receive it tomorrow

    • Brian Davis

      Nice! Did you originally have a shipping day of 7/11?

      • I did, which makes this getting it tomorrow so much better

        • sanjpanj

          that’s awesome, @twitter-24749143:disqus. where are you located?

          • Southern California

          • sanjpanj

            The reason I was wondering was because I also have a 7/11 ship date at the moment. I’m in the Chicago area.

          • I see, ya I don’t get how Verizon is deciding their shipments, it seems pretty random

  • Got got a charge from Big Red on my bank account, and my tracking status has shifted to a blank tracking number. Does this mean a shipment is imminent? (Ordered the 32GB Blue on 6/12.)

    • alby91a

      i ordered 16gb white on same day. i also had a debit on my account within last couple hours. i havent recieved a shipped email yet. i hope it goes out tonight!

      also jdhas, reply to this post when u recieve shipped notification please.

      • Checking constantly. Will update here when I have more info. Order screen says:

        Order Number:XXXXXTracking Number:
        Courier :
        Status: Your order will ship by 07/09/2012
        Ship Date:

        My guess: it will ship tomorrow and will be delivered on Monday (because there’s no way VZW would spring for Saturday overnight delivery).

        • alby91a

          mine says the exact same thing. ill post on here whenever i get any notification

          • alby91a

            got my shipping notification. tracking number isnt active in fedex yet. when i check my order status it says ship date 7/5. no delivery date yet.

          • Hey alby91a: JUST got my shipment notification email. Incredibly, it’s being shipped by 2-day service from a distribution facility that is an easy day’s drive from me, so it’s not expected to arrive before Tueday.

          • Hey alby91a: My last comment seems to haven been eaten by Disqus. *Shakes fist in the air. Vehemently.* I received my shipment email at 11:30 am EST. Amazingly, it’s shipping 2-day service from a distribution center a 6 hour drive from where I live, so the estimated delivery date is Tuesday. Still, progress is progress — I can handle a few more days with my trusty Droid X.

          • alby91a

            jdhas,
            i received my tracking number at 3am central time. at this time it still hasn’t been picked up by fedex. says standard overnight delivery, estimated delivery july 9. the wait is killing me but im glad to see progress.

        • Ethan

          This is what mine says right now as well. Still have no confirmation email or tracking info, but at least I know that my order is moving through the system. I’m (fingers crossed) hoping for a Monday delivery.

  • Dale

    Just saw pending charge on CC. Purchased 16gb blue on 6/12

  • Kicker

    saw a pending charge on my cc this morning. called verizon and they said if i have a pending charge it is ready to ship. at around 3:30PST i received an email saying it has shipped and will be at my house tomorrow by 3PM!

    from Memphis to LA…ordered 16GB on 6/6 morning

  • nsu1898

    16GB Blue, Ordered on 6/6 10 am Eastern time. JUST got shipment notification. Being sent overnight. What a feeling!!!

  • How do you check your order status? I can’t seem to find it…

    • Nevermind, got it. Had to use the preorder number.

  • Nick

    16GB Blue, Ordered by phone 6/6 8:30am. JUST got shipment notification. Being sent overnight, will have by 3pm tomorrow.

  • Jason Lynch

    32 GB blue pre-ordered online 2012-06-07. Email confirmation of order received at 10:34 AM that day (GMT -7, I’m in AZ). The pending charge just showed up within the last few hours (I’ve been watching for it). I’d say between 6 and 10 AM 2012-07-05. Order status now lists an order number and has a spot for a tracking number, but there is no tracking number present yet. It says “Your order will ship by 07/09/2012”.

  • I just got the email with tracking number saying to expect it by 7PM on the 9th. I was hoping to have it sent overnight.

  • FedEx Man

    All I work for FedEx and the holiday pushed everything by a day. We deliver on Saturday’s however, Verizon does not pay extra for that. Also each facility will not allow pick ups as Verizon did not give us that as a shipping option. My S3 shipped today via 2 day but I won’t get it until the 9th :/ hope this helps.

    • Alix8821

      Yu work there eh??….

      Is my tracking info being stuck on “in transit” for 20+ hours good or bad? haha.
      I live in NJ, and its coming from PA. Says delivery date of 9th, and know it’s 2 day shipping. But common. I”m 2 hours away. Was hoping to get lucky… my bday is sunday, after all

  • slops

    attempted delivery at 10:30am, they didn’t go to the apt complex office for signature. f*ck heads, i hate you fedex

  • Sean Saunders

    Ordered a blue 32 and white 32 at 8:30am on the first day of preorders. My cc was charged Tuesday but no shipping info and the check order status still says ship by 7/9…Really hoping I get something soon because my 2 Dinc’s are not working well at all anymore…

  • bullet4004

    So disappointing that I ordered early on June 6th and I haven’t received a shipping confirmation email. Nor do I have pending charges on my card.

    • I ordered early on the 6th too, but I do have the pending charges. There seems to be no rhyme or reason as to when these pre-orders are getting shipped.

      • jboogie1289

        Ordered 5 mins after my store opened. CC has been charged, money taken and still no email nor tracking info from VZW or FedEx. Called CSR 3 times and didn’tget an honest answer. Wow!!!

    • Zid316

      I’m in the same boat…I ordered mine late in the day on the 6th (4pm EST). I have no pending charge on my CC as of 10 minutes ago and my pre-order status still shows “Ship by 7/9/12”. SIGH πŸ™ My Droid X is just not cutting it anymore it has been a long painful wait for my S3.

    • nsu1898

      I am in the same boat. Ordered mine on the first day at 10am EST, no pending charges or status changes. and my og droid can’t suck more. That is just disappointing

  • GregSki86

    Definently 100% correct. My phone is on the fedex truck scheduled for delivery in a few hours :-). Damn its been a god awful wait for this phone but finally I will have it today!

    • Alix8821

      Where it coming from and where are yu?? I’m in North NJ, and it coming from PA….

      My shipping info still says “in transit”. BUT I’m 2 hours from where it originally left, yesterday, at 2pm… think I’ll get it today too?!? And the tracking info is simply delayed? Cause I know it’s gotta get sorted and wateva, but I mean, i’m literally 2 hours from where it was shipped from. How could it take until the 9th?!

    • I’m interested in finding out if you still have unlimited data after you activate your new phone. Let us know.

  • mike770

    I ordered my 32g White S3 on 6/6/12 at 8:30 am. I received the shipment email on 7/3. According to Fedex, the phone will be in my hands on 7/6/12. Sweet!

  • Howard

    Nothing for me yet, I ordered x2 16gb in white and blue on June 6th at about 10am. Refresh, refresh, refresh.

    • rodney11ride

      same here. i order on june 13th… it had still said a ship date of july 9. refresh refresh

  • Melissa Allen

    why in the world are verizon reps claiming that phones aren’t getting shipped until the 10th when they clearly are?! just talked to one this morning and she said no phones will be shipped until the 10th. moron. infuriating.

    • n8

      i talked to that same rep, I think… I told them they were lying

    • GalaxyMan

      It’s called exceeding expectations. People like that. It’s a lot worse than over-promising and letting people down.

    • vapor

      they just told me that the phone will ship on the 11th

  • e_droid

    I’ll have my 32gb White GSIII by tomorrow!! SO excited!

  • Adam M.

    Has anyone recieved their phones yet???

    • slops

      Jul 5, 2012 7:52 AMOn FedEx vehicle for deliveryHERNDON, VA

      • Adam M.

        Let us know when you get it!

    • wazzy

      My white 32GB is on delivery truck in route sometime today. Yes!

  • Firedawg13

    Mine is at the local fedex shipping center. Delivery tomorrow. Super excited. I got the Pebble blue

  • Bobby T

    Finally!!! Alomst a month of waiting.. I had the scare of my life yesterday, i saw my email and it said “order is on hold” it takes up to 3 days or something like that. Then i called VZ and I hella forgot i switched bank accounts so my VISA didn’t go through but just this morning i for my tracking number . Man i can’t wait. I just wanna break my iphone 4s jajaja. Android im coming back πŸ˜€

  • Order a 16GB on 6/13 and received my email that it shipped today at 1PM –Fed Ex tracking # but not in Fed Ex systems yet

  • Mine says 7/9 from Fedex but the package shows at final sort facility like 4 miles from where it is getting delivered… hopefully it is on truck tomorrow and Fedex is just being dumb with their anticipated delivery dates.

    • Alix8821

      Similar situation for me. It left last night, is “in transit” now from PA, which is 2 hours from the address I had it sent to. NO WAY it’ll take until the 9th to get there… Fingers Crossed

  • jboogie1289

    Ok, this is the last post I’m going to do until I have my phone in hand sending Oo’s and Ah’s from it. I talked with VZW CSR for the 3rd time today (in hopes of getting the right answer), and spoke with a nice young lady. I told her I was wanting to find out the status of my Preorder on my GSIII and that my CC was charged last evening around 7pm. She quickly said, “Oh yes, your phone was shipped out yesterday. Oops, hang on a sec, let me check this (and that)”. To make this short, she then came back and said well we won’t start shipping the phones out until the 10th and then made mention about even the preorders from 6/4 will be fulfilled in time. LMAO!! These people are clueless and hilarious on top of that.
    Cheers to those of you that have confirmation on your sets.

    • achaff86

      They’ve told me 3 different times that my phone was shipped yesterday but still no shipping info

      • jboogie1289

        What the crud!!! Sigh!!!!

        • achaff86

          Have you gotten an email from Verizon yet??

          • jboogie1289

            Unfortunately NO. πŸ™ Have you?

          • achaff86

            No πŸ™

          • Jay

            Someone’s a little antsy I think…

          • achaff86

            Just a little lol

          • Jay

            I know a few people that work at a Verizon, and they admit that they are terrible at sending out confirmation shipping emails. But they encourage to keep checking your status of the order to see whats going on.

          • achaff86

            They told me I would get shipping info tomorrow since today is the 4th but then when I called a noon the guy told me it shipped and this lady told me it shows that it shipped then another pages says its pending. So i’ll just wait to see if I get an email tomorrow! I am very impatient Lol

          • Jay

            You will get it soon enough…Im looking forward to getting mine, but dont want to take the hit in my back account yet.

          • achaff86

            My account got hit twice by verizon…. almost $300 for the phone and another $100 for my bill πŸ™

          • jboogie1289

            Maybe if I go to bed early, I’ll have a nice surprise in the morning, maybe in the form of an email stating my shipment will be delivered today before 5pm.

          • achaff86

            I’m hoping to get an email when I wake up it would be really super nice to get it tomorrow since tomorrow is my anniversary

          • jboogie1289

            Well, no luck there. Drat!!! Oh, Happy Anniversary to you!!

          • achaff86

            Did you get an e-mail?

          • jboogie1289

            Nope!!!

          • achaff86

            Just got an e-mail I will be getting my gs3 tomorrow!!! πŸ™‚

          • jboogie1289

            Yeah, so did I. Funny though, VZW’s site said it shipped out 7/3 but FedEx’s site says shipped out on 7/5. Anyway, I’m so glad this is over. Hopefully I can get it activated before I go in to work tomorrow night!!! If I don’t hear from you again, hope you enjoy your phone!!

          • achaff86

            Yeah, me too!! Now I hope I get my case tomorrow lol It was suppose to be 2 day shipping but it says standard overnight shipping but I’m not complaining i’ll have it by 11am bc the fedex guy is always here before 11 I hope you enjoy your as well

          • Jay

            When did you order yours?

          • achaff86

            6/6 at 8:09am

          • achaff86

            No e-mail but I called verizon they still said it shipped so I called fedex they said they have nothing maybe i’ll get the e-mail later today!

  • greg916

    I just got my shipping number it’s about time I got a broken screen on my thunderbolt and it’s time for a new device

  • magic8ball

    Ordered 16gb White on June 6. my order status says it was shipped on July 3!!!

  • Will84

    Hope yal Enjoy the new GS III this week. guess im the poor sucker who will have to wait until next week.

  • Ethan

    Ordered 16GB Blue model around 2pm on 6/10. Called VZW around noon today, CSR claimed that all phones were going out on the 9th; called back an hour later, different rep said same thing. Since we know this to not be true, I’m under the impression that most CSRs are not going to be giving accurate information.

  • k.sae

    Ordered mine on 6/6 10am PST. Package was picked up in West Chester, PA and has a Seattle delivery date of 7/9. 16gb white.

    • Alix8821

      Seattle from PA by the 9th?!?! Then my date of 7/9 to me in NJ is DEFF WRONG!!

      • jw

        I agree mine is to albany, ny and they are saying the 9th. I can drive there in 5 Hours! why should it take almost 5 days!

        • k.sae

          i’ve actually had packages that arrive in my city from fedex, but sit there until the ship date. But I hope you guys get yours soon.

          • Alix8821

            That’s happened to me as well. but common… No offense to yur situation, but I’m 2 hrs away, yur across the country. Shouldn’t have same delivery date. Just shouldn’t

  • Just looking to help out:
    (Blue 16gb)
    Received an email now @ 3pm on the 4th stating my phone shipped out yesterday with a tracking number.
    So those of you with your fingers crossed still have hope even though it’s a holiday today.

  • Tony31lv

    Ordered day 1 about 715am, 32gb white.charged cc yesterday received email today says shipped yesterday and tracking number. Still not found in FedEx system. I’m in Vegas. Hope the info helps u guys, I didn’t see many comments about the 32gb white

    • I also ordered the white 32 gb. my tracking number is not found either and it shipped yesterday. some times it takes time to process.

    • achaff86

      I called verizon, and they told me my s3 was shipped yesterday but they didn’t have any shipping info to give me all he told me was that I would get an email probably tomorrow and get my phone either tomorrow or friday I ordered the 32gb white on 6/6

  • KSoriano32

    mine shipped yesterday but the fedex shipping number info says Not found

    • yea so did mine i guess we just have to wait till they update the tracking number

  • tj707

    Got my email today saying my s3 shiped. Order placed 1 hour after pre order started.

  • UPDATE: I have a tracking # but no tracking information but I just received an automated call from Fed-Ex stating that my phone will be here tomorrow and requires a signature…w00h00!

  • axxis

    i got the email this morning preordered on the 6th still no delivery date though… white 16gb already have my case screen protectors and extra batterys ready to go!

    • Chronon7364

      Out of curiosity, what did you get for extra batteries? OEM or third party brand?

      • axxis

        third party hyperion friend had luck with them for htc thunderbolt..

  • gkinsella2

    Just talked to Verizon…if you have been charged, but have not received your shipment confirmation, it’s “in process of being boxed up for shipment”. Should go out tomorrow with today being a holiday.

  • Mr. Wiggles

    Has anyone heard any word of when Best Buy preorders ship? I heard the 15th, which is absolutely ridiculous. At that point I would cancel my order and go pick one up in the store.

  • Got charged late last night, around 6:30PM PDT and just received a tracking #. No information on the fedex side but it’s a step in the right direction.

    Ordered: 6/6 4:18AM PDT
    Model: Blue 16G

  • corkis84

    My blue 32gb s3 shipped on July 4th. Estimated arrival is on the 9th with 2day shipping.

  • mine shipped and says it wil be here on the 9th yet it states 2day air which would be friday

    • corkis84

      If it was picked up on the 4th it wont be moving anywhere that day. They might as well had said picked-up on the the 5th. No shipping on Saturday or Sunday. So the 9th it is.

  • Darren

    Ordered on 6/8 and no updates on my status, but I am sure they are working on all the 6/6 orders and going from there

  • Shawn

    ordered mine on 6-11 and nothing yet. still shows 7-9 to ship. im a sad panda

          I pre-ordered mine the 7th andim still waiting for mine to ship
          i live in south florida
          16GB-white

          • nightscout13

            Seems they are not shipping in order then
            I placed my pre-order late afternoon on the 8th. Sorry you have to wait still, I was already getting grey hair from waiting till the 9th….

  • nom

    Just got a shipment confirmation email this morning after seeing a pending charge on my credit card since yesterday afternoon. It’s already been picked up West Chester, PA..estimated delivery is Mon July 9th though lol…tracking page does say Fedex 2Day, so here’s to hoping it’ll be delivered quicker by Friday or Saturday πŸ™‚

    (I preordered the white 16 GB within 15 minutes of being available online for those wondering)

  • What is the benefit, if any, of ordering the 32gb s3 over the 16gb version if the phone can accept a microSD card? I ordered the 16gb version but am having second thoughts for the larger size. Please let me know

    • The benefit is more internal storage but you can just buy a 32g or 64g microSD and call it a day.

  • Brett

    mine shipped…arriving by 3pm July 5th!!!!

    • achaff86

      what color and size? My cc was charged yesterday for the white 32gb and it hasn’t been shipped yet!

      • jboogie1289

        This is quite odd. The selection process doesn’t make any sense. Maybe I’ll just wait and see what unfolds.

        • achaff86

          a lot of people must be calling customer care bc i’ve been on the phone for 20 minutes and haven’t gotten anywhere yet…

          • jboogie1289

            Was on the phone with them and had to wait for about 10 mins to get hooked up with a CSR, just to get disconnected. I wa like WTF!!! Called back and got in a lil faster just for them to tell me it is being shipped if your CC has been charged and possible delivery could be tomorrow or Friday at the lastest.

          • achaff86

            hopefully, they told me mine was shipped yesterday because my cc was charged but since today is the 4th of july fedex isn’t open so I won’t get any shipping info until tomorrrow. I’m going to call later and see if they say something different

          • jboogie1289

            So what time did you notice that your card was charged? I noticed after 7pm last night. That’s when I checked the order status page and it too was updated, just without carrier info and tracking link.

          • achaff86

            My card was charged at 8:25PM last night

          • thedk10

            I work for verizon and the reason being it took so long is cause of the colorado fire they evacuated are biggest call center so everything is getting rerouted lol ordered my gs3 16gb blue june 20th from my store and still havent got a email or anything

          • achaff86

            Yeah, I live in northwest Ohio and I have been without power for 6 days now!

  • Themanhere10

    I ordered 16 g blue on 6/14. No Charge on my card and no email yet…

  • houston1128

    Did any order a white that has shipped? I see a lot of people talking about the blue version.

    • jboogie1289

      Waiting on that same thing, ordered 32gig Tight White from South Houston store. Money gone but no email……yet. Grrrrr!!!!!!!

      • houston1128

        I ordered mine the 7th and I live in south florida and still no email yet
        16-white

    • jboogie1289

      Good question. Has anyone in the Houston Tx area have email confirmation email yet?

      • achaff86

        Just called verizon, my phone shipped yesterday but since today is a holiday I won’t receive my shipping info until tomorrow but he told me i’ll get my phone either tomorrow or friday

        • jboogie1289

          What was the number you called? Guess I need to make another call to see if I get the same information.

          • achaff86

            *611

          • jboogie1289

            I tell you, those CSR’s aren’t worth a crap sometimes. Bottom line is, if they charged your CC yesterday then it has already shipped. As for email confirmation, that could either come today possibly or tomorrow. Still threw that 7/9 crap out there but chances are it will be there tomorrow or Friday at the latest. Geez!!!

        • Hey just a heads up, they should have some kind of shipping info for you if it shipped yesterday. I just now received an email stating my phone shipped even tho it’s the 4th

    • jerm

      mine is white and it shipped out of memphis last night

  • just recieved my shipping confirmation which shows it has been picked up and will be here FRIDAY!!!!

  • Just recieved my email confirmation that it shipped just now!!!

  • sanjpanj

    I pre-ordered 7/3 so no doubt mine will ship late (7/11?)
    32gb blue.
    Order is in process: estimated ship at 7/11
    Will be pleasantly surprised if it ships before it’s released in stores.

  • Sky_Guy

    No post on Sundays.

    FFUUUU-

  • Marc D

    I ordered my S3 on 6/17 any chance I will get it early like everyone else.

    • Julian Monroy

      I ordered a 32GB Pebble Blue on 6/16. Hoping that I will also be getting it early too. (crosses fingers) Oh the agony of waiting!

      • Santos

        I also pre-ordered on the 16th… I think we’ll be way later than the others…. Probably August… πŸ™

    • Shea

      I ordered mine on 6/17 as well white 32gb and no email and no charge yet πŸ™ keep us updated if anything changes please πŸ™‚ I want my phone sooo bad!! Glad I’m not the only one being impatient over a phone lol

  • Melly

    I ordered mine 8 days ago and it hasn’t shipped yet. Why!!

  • Well, I ordered my 32GB blue S3 at around 8 AM on 6/6, I got a message that its on hold being processed to be shipped, but still no shipping notification. Hoping they work through the night to get it out!

  • UPS

    I called Verizon and spoke to a supervisor. He said that it was a error on the shipping dates and that all pre orders will be shipped on the 9th. Verizon is sending out emails to people who have received a shipment notification letting them know that the corrected date will be the 9th.

    • UPS

      Why are you downing this have fun waiting for your phone on the 5th

  • AVW

    This is getting redundant, but mine has also shipped. I’ll have it by the 6th. Good times.

  • Woot! Mine is going to be in my hands on July 5th ;D

  • Brian tesoroni

    Got my order confirmation at 7:06am… I called Verizon and they are
    denying that any phone will be shipped… I have no idea how Verizon is
    sending out phones.

    • Melissa Allen

      Just got off the phone with a rep and she said the date for all shipments is the 10th and doesn’t know why people are getting their tracking info already….This actually doesn’t surprise me because Verizon reps don’t usually know what they’re talking about. Ever.

  • BlueMouseBlues

    Dammit to hell. My first call they weren’t even open, and the 2nd call was a few minutes later the rep even made the comment I was the first person to pre-order the S3 from him. No charge on my CC and the order status still says the 9th. I guess it’s not first come first serve, as people who ordered the same phone hours after me are already seeing tracking #s.

  • Starchild323

    Add me to the party. Checked my credit card balance and saw where I was billed for it. Received email tonight, due to receive on 7/6 Yipee

  • Ryan Simon

    Mine hasn’t shipped yet but my card has been charged. I’m expecting an email tomorrow morning from Verizon. Ordered my 16GB white on 6/13.

    • KnightA12

      Same-credit card charged, but no email yet. 16GB White. Also I want to get the Otterbox Defender case but its not avail anywhere πŸ™

      • Shea

        Yeah even otter box site says you can’t get anything but black at this time

        • KnightA12

          I ordered a similar one today from case mate, the Phantom model. Use the 4July coupon for $10 off.

          ….and I got my tracking number from VZW for the GS3 this morning.

  • Tom Dwenger

    mine just shipped and is saying the 5th for expected delivery

    • achaff86

      When did you get the email from verizon? I was told they won’t be shipping more out until tomorrow morning

  • DontBeConfused

    WOW.. what the F***??? I pre ordered it on June 6th, at 730 am EST. I was given a ship by date of july 9.. i haven’t gotten ANY email, and NOW, my ship by date is July 11th. REALLY???? WTF VERIZON

    • thatsdapper

      Same here

      • thatsdapper

        16gb white?

    • BlueMouseBlues

      You’re not the only one. I called in early enough that the east coast office wasn’t even open and my ship date still says the 9th. No charge on my CC either. This blows.

      Edit: 32gb blue.

    PendingCollapse transaction
    Transaction date:07/03/2012Transaction type:Temp Auth / Pending PymtReference number:TEMP

    A temporary authorization is an approved transaction that has not yet been posted to your account. The amount of the transaction has been deducted from your available credit. Normally, a temporary authorization converts into a posted transaction, but if the merchant doesn’t complete the transaction it will expire and the temporary charges will be removed. A pending payment is a payment we have received from you and is in the process of posting to your account.

    • pedrodepacas

      just checked my account, this popped up today, hopefully they ship soon!!!

  • Piotr G.

    Just checked my credit card..I have a charge pending from verizon.

    called verizon number and it says mine has shipped with estimated delivery of 2 days =O

  • npompei

    Just charged my bank
    Ordered first day around noon
    16gb white
    No shipment info
    But checked round 7pm tonight and nothing, now charged! Lets hope it got shipped before tomorrow the 4th

  • Coderedpl

    Mine says the 9th….what kind of bs is that ;(

  • i dont get why some people are complaining that they wont get theirs until after the launch… who cares!? .. the MAJOR point of pre-ordering this phone from Verizon was that those of us with unlimited data didnt want to be screwed sideways after the 28th and be forced into buying full retail. So who cares if its a day or two late after the official launch!! people need to chill !

    • npompei

      Oh I completely agree. Its like everΓ½one else not on Verizons 4g – shame. But this is good news!

  • airplane

    I ordered on 9th, lot of wait πŸ™

    • i ordered on the 27th at 4:50pm at a local verizon store before it closed at 5pm and my ship date still says july 9th haha

      • airplane

        I am sure 27th orders wont be getting it any sooner than June 9th orderes πŸ˜‰

  • Brian SGS3

    I ordered on 6/27 to keep unlimited data. I was told by a rep that even though it says 7/11 that is shipped by and they anticipate getting all pre-orders shipped before the 10th at the latest (before the general release). Next round will be on Thursday. Many orders and takes time. Still ahead of schedule which is unheard of for VZW……. I remember with my Droid X the backlog was tremendous. I am hoping to have the S3 in my7 hands before the 10th

    • Dave

      My situation exactly

  • Barbarella9

    Received an email from Verizon with shipping number and link to Fedex to track shipment. Shipment will be delivered on the 5th by 3pm.

  • still getting mine next week. seems like Verizon dont care about certain customers.

  • jboogie1289

    Now the tracking page has changed. But it still days “Ship by 7/9”. Still don’t understand how others are getting it on the 5th. Sigh. Haven’t checked my CC acct yet.

    • jboogie1289

      Ok. CC has been charged. Guess I’m getting somewhere. No tracking number on the updated page however nor an email. Can you say IMPATIENT!!

      • achaff86

        I called verizon, they said the orders that were processed after 6pm will ship out tomorrow so we’ll get it on friday!

        • jboogie1289

          So you mean orders that were processed today after 6pm will ship and be here on Friday? Awesome!!!

          • achaff86

            From what they told me yes, but I seen that fedex isn’t open tomorrow so I’m still hoping i at least get shipping info tomorrow morning

          • jboogie1289

            You and me both. Enjoy your new toy Fellow GSIII owner and thanks for the info andencouragement. Now come on Friday!!!

          • achaff86

            oh I will lol, I just rooted my gnex from ics to jb and I love JB ill miss it but im sure soon someone will have a JB rom for the gs3!!

          • jboogie1289

            I’ll have to get my nerve up to root. Will be holding on to my GNex tho. Enjoy.

          • wickets

            You definitely should…it isnt even that hard to do. Once you have jelly bean on your phone you wont care one iota about the s3

  • Yup yup…. ordered two… comin in this Friday… mmmmm!

  • Robert Stevens

    they just know that smartphone suckers will buy them, there is little benefit beyond class 6

  • Robert Stevens

    Mine shipped today to arrive the 5th! 32gb white version pre-order the 6th of June

    • achaff86

      how long until you got ur shipping info? My cc was charged 2 hours ago and I haven’t gotten an email from verizon yet

  • fillyo

    I ordered two, one 6/6 and one on 6/23. The one ordered on 6/6 has an order number, with an area for tracking information. The other one says we received your order and its in process (which my 6/6 order said earlier today). First one is a 16gb Blue and 2nd is 16gb white.

  • Joe

    Mine shipped today, will be here Thursday!

  • l k

  • boss1634

    Mine will arrive the 5th! πŸ™‚

  • nightscout13

    People, when you say your phone shipped, please specify which color, GB, and when you pre-ordered. Also, what your original pre-order ship date was.

    • Mine shipped! Have a FedEx tracking #! Delivery on 7/5! WOOT!

  • I suck, mine still says 7/9

  • Ordered on 6/12. Still no email for me. πŸ™
    I’m betting (hoping) the preorders that didn’t ship today will ship Thursday and arrive Friday.

  • xmf125

    ordered on 6/13..credit card charged for 32gb white.

    • FortitudineVincimus

      wow, I ordered my 32gb white a week before you.. and nothing πŸ™

      • BlueMouseBlues

        Ordered a 32gb blue the very day pre-order opened. Even woke up super early to be one of the first being on the west coast. I know people already have tracking # for the same color and GBs. No charge on CC, no tracking, no e-mail. Absolutely nothing.

    • xmf125

      No emails or change to the shipping date of 7/9 though πŸ™

      • xmf125

        just got the shipping notification!

  • Ordered 32gb Pebble Blue GS3 on 6/20 @ Verizon store. My order status still says nothing at all, not even a ship by date… Congrats to all who get theirs on the 5th!

  • Frank

    • FortitudineVincimus

      6/25? the people getting emails and shipping info were in early.. like day 1 or 2 of PO on June 6-7th, your like 3 weeks later homie

    • anjelita

      nope i was an early bird for the 16g and changed my mind and re- preordered the 32g on 6/25 : /

  • I shall have phone in hand by 3pm on Thursday, Yeah BOYYEE!!!!

  • Frank

  • alby91a

    Dangit, i didn’t order mine until jun 12. no telling when it might show up.

  • cleffy

    Mine says Delivery date of July 5th for 16GB white

  • Andy S

    Mine shipped coming by the 6th!!!

  • Nelson

    Have shipped info with delivery July 5

  • Not sure how this will work for me. I work for UPS and receive all phones and accessories via UPS next day air. In order to get it by the 5th it would have to ship today and hasn’t. TOld my wife to expect it on the 11th.

  • achaff86

    My card was JUST charged!!! πŸ™‚

    • FortitudineVincimus

      when did you PO our white? what size? where you located?

      • achaff86

        6/6 @ 8:03am I ordered the white 32gb I live in northwest ohio

      • jw

        Mine was charged yet the shipping info hasn’t been updated just says shipping by 7/9/12. You’d think if they charged it today that they would ship it but who knows?

  • DontBeConfused

    argghhh.. I ordered mine at 730 on the 6th and no confirmation yet. I’m curious if Verizon is actually sending them out in order. Come on Verizon. I want mine before weekend trip!

  • Got the email that my pebble 16gb shipped today & est arrival is 7/6 woot!

  • npompei

    My guess is all of these will be going out early. Its just taking a while to get through the system. Right?!

    • achaff86

      From what I was told a little bit ago when I called *611 is that everybody who pre ordered the gs3 will get it before its released

      • jboogie1289

        Called *611 and they were no help. Tried to play the I can’t get to that info online part and this guy just confirmed what my “expected ship date” is. Also asked was there a chance if they would ship sooner and he said yes, you will get an emai when that occurs. DRAT!!!

        • FortitudineVincimus

          I tried same trick, guess we got the same guy. was he real dull with the personality of a spud?

          • jboogie1289

            Hell yeah!! He was no ball of fire I tell ya.

  • FortitudineVincimus

    I did a Best Buy PO the day PO opened June 6. Then, I did a PO with VZW as I got a better deal with VZW then BB. Just yesterday I cancelled my BB PO.

    So, I did not do my VZW PO until 6-7-12. I PO a white 32gb and my status says “Expected Ship Date: 07/09/2012” I am in San Diego

    • achaff86

      I also ordered the 32gb white one but haven’t received anything from verizon yet…

  • jboogie1289

    So are those that ordered online instead of the store stand a chance of getting their preorders shipped out first? I ordered in store at 10am central time and only one other person was there doing the same thing as I was. The greeter didn’t even know what the GSIII was so she whipped out here iPhail and “GOOGLED” it. Anyway, my status remains unchanged at 7/9, but the nights not over yet………..

  • Droidkl0wn

    Ordered mine at 7:18 eastern and still nothing… How lame

  • stephen shavers

    Just got my email Looks like i should be receiving mine thursday by 3pm.

  • Don

    Ordered a GS3 Blue 16gb @ 6:38 am cdt on 6/6. Still says 7/9 ship date and card no charges. Boo

    • Don

      My card just got charged. Still no email but i know it is coming!

  • Chris

    Mine just shipped, 5th. Too bad I will be out of town but my wife will get it.

  • Jorge Hurtado

    Using my preorder confirmation #, I’m still seeing an Expected Ship Date Not Available at this Time…. cry.

    • jboogie1289

      Even when you input your info in on the Online Order option? When I do the VZW Store option, it tells me to check back later (system issue) which its been saying that until I accidentally entered it on the Online Option section.

      • Jorge Hurtado

        Yeah. I called VZW CSR. They said I’m on the schedule for ship of 7/9 to receive 7/11. I did end up paying only $50 + upgrade fee for a 16GB Blue so I guess I can’t complain… wait… yeah I still can complain!

        • jboogie1289

          Well crap, what’s a few more days!! Ugh, I wanted to get this baby before the weekend.

  • chris125

    makes sense those who preordered would get them a few days before.

  • jerm

    i just received my email and i ordered mien at 7:20 on 6/6. just remember they are shipping out hundreds of thousands so there system is probably going pretty slow

  • achaff86

    Anyone whos order has shipped, did you order the white one? I ordered the 32gb gs3 in white and haven’t gotten an email yet

    • jboogie1289

      Any email from Big Red yet? I still haven’t gotten anything from them either.

      • achaff86

        No not yet, if I don’t get anything by noon I’m going to call them

        • jboogie1289

          Guess I’ll be doing the same soon too.

  • I ordered mine in the store… I have no idea where to check online to find an eta ship date or anything about me pre ordering the phone

  • poophead

    Mine says delivered July 5! I will be the first in North America with one for sure!

    • Droidkl0wn

      What time did you order?

    • no

  • The Wait is Over!

    Mine has also shipped!!! I can’t wait! I ordered the 32GB Peble Blue SG3 on Verizon on 06/06/12 (at 6:00 AM on the first day) and I just received the tracking number and confiration that the package has shipped. Mine is shipping out of Memphis and FedEx estimates that it will arrive to me on Thursday, July 5th.

    • Justin

      i had mine ordered in the first 5minutes they went on preorder and it says mine went out today and should be delivered Friday at 7pm. Its coming from PA to MD. But sadly im leaving MD Thurs to go to Gettysburg for the weekend! I am going to try and track it down and pick it up where i can!

      • Cory Guagliardo

        It’s strange, I live in Baltimore and ordered mine early first day but mine still says will ship by 07/09. Guess you’ll have a welcome home gift waiting.

    • you on the east coast or west coast?

  • Ed B

    I got my email showing it shipped today with a delivery date of July 5th

  • mini-me

    Tracking mine. its about damn time too

  • Android4life

    i pre ordered from the store, will mine come any sooner?

    • guest

      Um it depends do you have to go to the store to pick it up? If so then your prob will get it on the 10th when it releases.

  • TD

    Mine shipped, overnight delivery, will receive on July 5th. Ordered Blue 32GB on June 6th @7AM

    • TD

  • bandit

    • chris125

      yes

  • m6droid

    Got my confirmation email of my pre-order at 7:14am on 6/6. Still no charge on my card or email of shipment. Still says it’s shipping 7/9.

    • m6droid

      P.P.S. There is no God. πŸ™

  • I pre-ordered the blue 32gb on June 6 at a few minutes past 7 am. My credit card was charged today and my order was shipped today by fedex with an estimated arrival of July 5. My order in the Shipment travel history has the phone being picked up in Memphis, TN on July 3 5:28 pm.

    • nightscout13

      After you pre-ordered, what was your original “will ship by date” was it the 9th?

  • Stephen

  • I ordered mine on 06/13 and I got zip… This is the first phone upgrade where I am like ‘eh’. Darn Verizon MADE me do it! Wanted Razr HD or Note equiv. I have the Razr Maxx and can’t overstate how awesome having the extra battery is.

  • Still waiting for my upgrade date on the 7th! πŸ™‚

  • Maddingo

    Does anyone know how this will effect pre-orders from Best Buy?

  • so if i ordered it on the 13th when should i be getting it..

    The only pending charge on my card is from my fiancee’s shopping spree at Macy’s. Does that count?

    Preordered on 6/20. VZW says ship date is 7/10.

  • HouseofCrew

    Whelp I don’t have to hold my breath. That picture says my pre-order date of 6/27 is still shipping by the 11th. My experience with the Incredible has made me less excitable about these things.

  • For people who got an email: When did you preorder the phone?

    • Stephen

      I just ordered it like right after it opened

  • Marco

    I have received my fedex tracking number with a guaranteed arrival on 7/5 by 3PM!

    • achaff86

      what color?

  • achaff86

    I’m hoping to get an email today, then I would be happy… I hate waiting

  • Yan

    Received email saying they are shipped.. yay.. Friday is delivery day

    • glep

      16 or the 32?

  • tonix435

    Received a shipping notice from vzw and thought it was a mistake. But I am getting mine July 6…

    • achaff86

      when did you preorder your GS3?

      • tonix435

        • achaff86

          I ordered mine on 6/6 @ 8:09am EST but haven’t received anything yet!!

        • glep

          did u order the 16 or 32?

          • tonix435

            I ordered the 32 in blue…

  • Mine didn’t say it shipped yet, and I didn’t get an email. I’m checking with the bank now.
    Hopefully I’m not the last to get it.

  • My card was charged today. Not received shipping info yet. I ordered 6/6 @ 7:05am est. White 16GB

  • Phillip Duggan

    Mine says:

    Expected Ship Date: 07/09/2012

    But I’m still holding out hope for that earlier date…

    • chris125

      same here. My cc also has not been charged yet.

  • mjs1124

    Shipped from West Chester PA will receive by 7/6 at 4:30pm. I’m in NY. Maybe it will be in by 7/5 when i’m off, or I will pick up at Fed Ex office on the 5th

  • interstellarmind

    I pre-ordered on day 1 (6/9) at immediately when the pre-order button went live that (early) morning. I have a pending charge from vzw on NY credit card. Ship by date reads 7/9, carrier and tracking number are blank.

    • interstellarmind

      Sorry for the typos… a little too sgsIII happy!!

  • Stephen

    Mine just charged and I am awaiting a shipping number

  • Barbarella9

    I don’t have the fedex shipping number yet but I do have a pending charge on my credit card. I’ll keep checking throughout the day to see if a shipping number comes up. I also preordered at 7am on June 6th.

  • James

    I got a shipment confirmation and tracking number. Estimated delivery is July 6.

  • Dylan

    If I wanted to keep my unlimited data could I still order this phone while keeping it?

    • Snowcrash

      Yes, at the full retail price.

      • wazzy

        Received my FedX shipping verification today at 5:23. Should have it on July 5th by 3:00 pm. Ordered a white 32 on 6/6 early. Very awesome after reading the in-store delivery info today and holding one at the Sprint store today. Super thin and small considering the 4.8″ screen size.

    • evltwn

      Only if you want to pay full retail. You would have had to pre-order no later than June 27th. New data plans went into effect on the 28th.

    • Tommy

      I pre-ordered mine and was told by verizon that I will be keeping my unlimited data plan.

  • Nelson

    I just checked my credit card and I have been charged

    • nightscout13

      Lucky… I’ve had dreams of my money being taken away, but not yet.

  • Lord Dextro

    Just to let you know, Lord Dextro’s credit card was charged by Verizon for this phone. Looks like the rumor pans out.

  • I am a day 1 pre-order and “We received your order and it is in process.Expected Ship Date: 07/09/2012”

        no information from Fedex yet, but vzw shows its number

        • nightscout13

          Bummer… I didn’t do mine till the 8th i think, cause at first i had pre-ordered at best Buy, but they had to cancel my pre-order.

        • nightscout13

          Keep us posted for arrival date

        • I preordered mine around 9am mountain time on the 6th. Hope I get mine sooner rather than later.

    • feztheforeigner

      Verizon’s website keeps telling me my order doesn’t exist…(I have a pre-order confirmation receipt email from them, it was ordered)

      • Justin B

        i had the same issue, put in the preorder conf number, not the actual order number. It is weird how it works. I Have to wait, mine still says the 11th as the expected ship date πŸ™

        • doubleyouare

          i had this prob also….like justin said, use the preorder conf # in the email they sent you when you ordered it. make sure you put your last name EXACTLY as it is in the email also…mine was all caps so that threw me the first few times I tied it. I ordered mine within 10 min of them going onsale on the website on the 6th. 32g pebble blue….cc got charged today but website only says it will ship by the 9th and I haven’t gotten any email. i feel left out….

          • gkinsella2

            Same with me, I ordered 16gb pebble blue early on 6/6…the charge is now pending on my card, but no confirmation that it has been shipped, though the Order Status screen has changed to show the actual order#, Carrier(blank), Status(ship by 7/9), etc.

          • Joshua Lewis

            if they’ve charged your card, they’re preparing to ship it. Mine says it’s shipping on the 10th and there is no charge on my card yet. i ordered on the 14th so i’m not getting my hopes up. wish i would have jumped sooner though!

          • doubleyouare

            (update) received my email today with shipping info and tracking #!!!! will be here tomorrow before 3pm!!! good luck everybody!!!!!

      • infernalpudding

        I’ve never once been able to actually check my status online, despite copying and pasting the preorder confirm number and last name exactly as indicated in my confirmation email. It always returned an error indicating that my preorder number or last name was entered incorrectly. However, when I called *611 and said ‘check order status’ at the prompt, it’d ask if I was calling regarding order number ending in (last few digits of my pre-order #), so I knew it was in the system. A Verizon phone rep also confirmed that all was well. Anyway, I ended up getting a shipping confirmation this morning, so in the event that we experienced the same order status issue, all should be well.

        That said, it probably wouldn’t hurt to call and verify everything is cool just to confirm and ease your worries.

      • heyhil

        Go to your confirmation email that you received and enter the location number. Mine pulled up that way. Before I entered that number it stated that my order didn’t exist either. Still no tracking number though. I was late with ordering mine.

        • feztheforeigner

          I finally got it using the pre order number. Mine ships on the 9th and I pre ordered the first day.

          My dad pre ordered the second day and his has already shipped…

        Not late at all. I am checking this thread daily lol

        • Ethan

          Same here haha. Still no word on my 16GB Blue, preordered 6/10.

          • Javis Sullivan

            16gb blue 6/12…ALSO waiting for my nexus 7 as well. I feel like i’m about to experience Christmas in July! I am coming from a thunderbolt and N/A in the table arena.

  • No pending charges yet and it still says 7/9 for ship date. Keep in mind I preordered it on day 1.

  • ill believes it when i sees it

  • djm5052

    My order status screen has updated with areas for tracking info, however the info is still blank:

    Tracking Number:
    Courier :
    Status: Your order will ship by 07/09/2012
    Ship Date:

    Credit Card now has a pending charge from Verizon.

    • jw

      Me too, you would think if they took our money they’d at least ship the phone?

    • Daniel Tifft

      Exactly the same thing as you.. this sucks!

    • Me too. I don’t know if I can take the wait any longer, especially since people who ordered the same version (Blue, 16GB) are getting theirs shipped. I ordered mine around 7:00am CST on 6/6, and it looks like people who ordered around the same time as I did or even a little after are getting theirs shipped. I don’t get it.

  • Carlos carrasquillo

    Blah…

  • stephen

    You might have just caused a riot for all of us waiting for our verizon s3

  • Ansextra

    So is there any way to see the rest of the shipping schedule?

  • Ken Bosse

    I can no longer see my order status, but my CC has a charge pending..weird

    • Jonbo298

      That’s a good thing. You’ll probably be the first to get it on the 5th

      • Definitely seems like a good thing.

    • Droidkl0wn

      What time on the first day did you order?

  • Jonbo298

    Actually, the screen says receiving as early as July 5th, not shipping as early as July 5th.

  • Hec Mora

    7/11 for me i ordered the pebble blue maybe thats why??

  • Benny

    You wrote 2 paragraphs, and still managed to get it wrong…it says customers will *receive* the devices. That means they’re shipping earlier than that.

    • That’s actually pretty funny…I guess I just couldn’t believe it heh. It indeed does say “receive” on the 5th. Tweaked slightly. πŸ™‚

  • Wintrmte

    Still 7/11 here.. πŸ™

  • piranhaconda

    7/9 for me…

  • Nothing on my order status yet. But this would be welcome news!
