Re: Samsung Galaxy S III Available in Stores July 1

I am a bit confused- will the 32 gig version be available in the stores or online only?

I can understand the confusion.  It says:

Which would mean that the 32 and 16 are available in stores.

Then it says:

Which contradicts the first quote.

It should read something like this:

Is there any news as to when the 32GB version will be available at Sprint Stores and resellers, ie Radio Shack and Best Buy?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S III Available in Stores July 1

I PRE-ORDERED through a corporate Sprint store. As of yesterday (June 27th), they claimed to have no idea when they would see the phones, and also told me that the $100 gift card used as a deposit (2 phones) is non-refundable.  As I am basically stuck at this point, can I hold out hope that I'll be able to pick up my PRE-ORDERS on Sunday, July 1st?

What time will telesales and the website start selling the 32gb version? Midnight? First thing in the morning?

Thanks for the info! 🙂

I just had a chat with a Sprint employee, and he confirmed that the National launch will be July 1st.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S III Available in Stores July 1

So my question to anybody on here from Sprint is this:  If the phones were supposed to be released on June 21 and were not, and everybody has been waiting on the phones, why on earth would Sprint send the phones to the stores and then not let them out until Sunday??  Got a call from my store saying the 16g phones would be out Sunday.  Stopped by the store and talked to my salesman.  Asked when the phones would arrive and he stated'" Oh, we have them in the back, but can't sell them until Sunday"  Makes me want to seriously re-consider having a Sprint account.

Called Sprint to ask about this and all I got from a "supposed" CS Supervisor was " call Samsung, we don't control that"

That is a terrible way to conduct business, but I think they send them to the stores even thogh they can't sell them so that the stores will be ready for launch. I agree 100 percent that they should take care of pre oder customers first, considering pre-ordering is so that you can be one of the first to get your phone. That and pre-ordering is suppose to give you priority. You should have yours before Sunday. If not they should give everyone who pre-oredered store credit or a free accessory.
