AT&T Galaxy S III

A little bit of good news for those of you who are still trying to get the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III from an actual ... what do you call it ... oh, right -- store. The carrier today says it expects full stock on July 6 -- that's this Friday. Preorders have been shipping over the past several days, so that's been taken care of. But being able to walk in, hold the GSIII in your hand and then plop down some cash has been problematic, at best. This week that ends.

Pricing remains $199 for the 16GB version, which is all AT&T's got. But you can still slap up to a 64GB microSD card in there, so all's not lost.

But before you hoof it over to an AT&T store -- hell, before you eat lunch -- be sure to read our complete AT&T Galaxy S III review.

Why would anyone buy the 32GB version?

mobilewill says:

I would if AT&T sold them. Argh.

Internal storage is faster than SD cards.

crackcookie says:

Why would anyone buy the 32GB version iphone/tablet or bigger sized hard drives in general?

for people who want maximum storage space

carlosrey23 says:

But that is an incorrect argument on the basis that you cannot expand memory or swap batteries on iPhone.

codeda says:

Yeah but with Apple products there is no sd card slot.

mobilewill says:

I am so excited! Finally a date to look forward to. My BB District Manager is trying to get me one sooner though.

This is interesting....I called to order mine from ATT directly....I was told completely sold out!!!

Just spoke to a CSR and tells me that they won't (not they don't) have the SGS3 until about 20 to 25 days after the stores get it. In fact...One cannot pre-order the phone any longer...only buy it at the store!

I think they lied to you Crey23...

Yesterday I called and they told me that I could order over the phone, online, or in-store. I opted for in-store and went today and placed an order for the white version. Now, three hours later it has moved from on-hold to in progress.

"Thank you for your recent AT&T order. Your equipment has been reserved and is expected to ship within the next 3 to 5 business days."

With any luck I'll have a package at my house before the sixth. This SGS2 is getting old even with ICS.

carlosrey23 says:

That was yesterday (Sunday). As of Monday Morning they had completely ran out of stock.

I ordered mine yesterday about 2 pm CST in a corporate store and it shipped already today.

XChrisX says:

I ordered mine last Thursday, and it had arrived by Saturday. Awesome device, not a single regret leaving the iPhone.

GQ50 says:

I wonder if they'll have the blue ones as well?

SpookDroid says:

I really don't care if 32GB comes out, I WANT THE RED ONE!!! :'(

If UPS tracking is to be believed, my AT&T GS3 (ordered from Amazon Wireless on June 21st) will be waiting for me at home when I arrive tonight.

Bubbamel says:

It's about time we had some "concrete" date from at&t.

planoman says:

They must have finally stocked all stores. Glad I got mine the 21st! ;)

gmon3y says:

any word on the red GSIII?

Finally. My first android phone. Bye Bye iPhone.

Zaisaroni says:

I ordered my Pebble Blue GS3 at Best Buy on the 21st, after the BB runaround I cancelled it Tuesday and ordered at an AT&T Corp store. Wednesday, it was at my doorstep waiting for me...

Mushdagrt says:

So when are they releasing the red color variant?

heraldo says:

There's an article the red one flossing around here. Search.

Does anyone know when the AT&T version will be available through RadioShack? I can't seem to get a straight answer on this question
