Pre-order begins June 5 at www.sprint.com/galaxysiii
Manufactured by Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile), Galaxy S III is powered by Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, and boasts a brilliant 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED™ touchscreen and access to the Sprint 4G LTE network when it launches later this year.
Sprint is the only national U.S. wireless carrier to offer Galaxy S III preloaded with Google Wallet™ enabling the phone to act like a personal wallet using Near Field Communication (NFC) to make safe purchases at more than 100,000 participating retailers.
Samsung Galaxy S III will be offered in a 16GB version for $199.99 and 32GB version for $249.99 (excluding taxes) with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement at Sprint Stores, Sprint Business Sales, Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) and Web Sales (www.sprint.com).

Galaxy S III offers the speed of a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM for multitasking, amazing graphics and rich HD multimedia content. It also has two cameras – an 8-megapixel rear-facing zero shutter-lag camera with LED flash, 1080p video capture, intelligent camera features and facial recognition and 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera. New features designed to make the phone easier to use include:
Galaxy S III also takes sharing to a new level by making it faster and easier to share pictures, videos and presentations between devices or with friends and groups of people.
If you head out to a corporate store they can apply your trade-in to your account I believe. Or just mail out your phone to sprint in the little envelope that comes with the packaging of the evo lte.
I am located in Texas DFW area and was wondering specifically what time we can preorder on June 5th. Does pre-ordering start at 12am midnight central time as in begining of June 5th or is there a specified time during the day similar to the evo lte?
I just want to confirm what I'm thinking, but since the launch date will be the 21st, those who pre order will receive it before then, & on the 21st of June, sprint stores and other retailers of sprint will have the phone available?
I just ordered my 16gb Galaxy S3 FINALLY, and here's what my order summary stated:
