    Seems some are getting ship notices for Verizon from the first day, others aren't. IF you have received a shipment notice, please put in the poll what type of phone you ordered. Thanks!

    white 16gb.

    i don't see the point of getting a 32 when i can just plop in a bigger sd card for cheaper.

    My 32GB Pebble Blue shipped today (delayed due to zip code verification issue). Due tomorrow! :)
    My mother's white 16GB is still saying the 10th.

    VZW 32GB Blue showed up today. It's thin and very smooth. I'm terrified I'm going to drop it. Time to order a case I guess.

    Charged, no tracking number showed up though. How long after the charge did you guys get shipping or receive the phone?

    What the fuck.

    I ordered first day, said 7/9 expected ship date. I check today and it's "Sent for Processing" and it changed to 7/11. :mad:

    Still haven't charged me, either.

    (16 GB Blue btw)

    My order was charged and shipped today for delivery on Monday. I ordered a blue 16 the first day based on what they said that the 32 was using the microsd card slot. I called back the next day to confirm as there seemed to still be conflicting reports on the shipping config of the 16 vs 32 gb models and they had new sales info they did not have the first day that stated the 32 gb was onboard so I cancelled my order and ordered the 32 gb model.

    I was out of town today on the 4th and I didn't get home until late afternoon which my S3 was delivered to my house in the morning. So they will deliver it again tomorrow so I sign the delivery paper. I'm pumped for my 32 gb white so I can play with it all damn day long :)

    I was charged yesterday, got a tracking number that said it was picked up and at the fedex on Jul4th, fed ex lists the delivery ECD as 6/9 I'm going to be out of town this weekend, so I hope it doesn't arrive early

    White 16GB, I have a 32GB Sammy micro sd card all loaded up for it. Fiance bought it for me and she deleted her confirmation mail from Verizon so I have no idea when I'll get it. The very rude online Verizon chat lady named Ashlee said they were all shipping the 12th and there's no way I could get an update or even see my invoice. I didn't push the issue.

    What time did you order? I got my order confirmation four minutes after they started taking preorders. I'd like to think they're going in order.

    Pretty early in the day, I think. Just makes me wonder if people who ordered days later and had an estimated ship date on the 10th or 11th are getting delayed as well.

    I got my shipment notification this afternoon. FedEx should deliver my pebble blue 16gig S3 around noonish if I remember their route correctly.

    Posting from my 32GB. This thing is certainly snappier than my Dx, but I couldn't get a new launcher on here fast enough.

    Mine shipped 7/5/12 @ 14:30. Its a 5 hour car drive from my house to the package pickup location in PA noted by FedEx. Now the package is in New Fucking Jersey (3 hours the wrong direction) and has been sitting there since 01:00. A convenient reminder as to why I always use UPS. So much for having the weekend to get acquainted with the phone.

    So, okay. Today I got the shipping notification. I was originally supposed to get the phone July 9th, but then they switched that date to July 11th at the last minute. Now, on the tracking info, it says July 10th.

    Why couldn't they just have shipped it overnight (which they actually said it was on their website..."Free Overnight Shipping") so I could get it the 9th? Verizon... :rolleyes:

    BTW They used "Fedex 2day Select".

    Maybe it depends on what warehouse it came out of? Also, maybe the power outages in parts of the Midwest have something to do with it? Although I am in the Midwest, so that might not be it. At the top of my FedEx tracking site it says in Red: IMPORTANT!
    Normal operations have resumed in Mid-Atlantic states and Colorado.

    I am anxiously awaiting mine. It is on the FedEx truck as we speak, and should be delivered in ~20 minutes. Got the shipping notification last night.

    Doesn't change the fact that they used 2-day and not overnight like they claimed, but oh well. 10th is better than 11th I guess.

    Got mine about an hour and a half ago. Surprisingly its not a sealed box so I took a look first instead of going to the store to compare colors. Not feeling the blue as much as I had hoped and unfortunately the cooperate store at the mall doesn't have any yet. So I'm on the phone right now with support seeing about getting one shipped out today in exchange for mine. Hopefully I don't have to ship mine back and wait for them to get it then wait more for the white one to get here...


    Edit: Ok, white one ordered, should ship tonight but I may have it as late as Tuesday. Unlimited data was unchanged and I shouldn't have a restocking fee. Next time I wont be going out on a limb, but maybe next time they'll have a black version of what ever phone I want...

    I like the blue. Just got mine about an hour ago. The button is a little off in color from the body, but not enough to bother me. White looks like/reminds me of iPhone.

    I got my shipping notification today. Originally, I had the 11th as a ship date.
