Early Arriving Galaxy S3s Having a Hard Time Activating This Morning on Verizon’s Network

We know that some of your Galaxy S3 orders are arriving this morning (me not being one), but we would love to know if you were able to activate it successfully. According to a few readers, their units showed up today, but customer service is unable to get them up and rolling. We aren’t sure if this is only happening to those bouncing from a 3G phone to their first 4G phone or if there is some extra step that is causing current 4G phones to not be able to simply insert their SIM card. Since Verizon wasn’t fully expecting these to arrive until next week, maybe they aren’t ready.

We have reached out to Verizon to see if we can get to the bottom of this. In the mean time, let us know if you received yours and if you are activated and enjoying the impressive power of this phone. Were you already on a 4G device or are you coming from a 3G phone?

Cheers Tony, Sid and Mike!
