Samsung Galaxy S III

If you prefer to do your smartphone shopping at Best Buy, the retailer this morning let loose that it's now taking preorders (they call 'em "presales") for the Galaxy S III at stores nationwide. Best Buy's doing the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon versions of the GSIII, so you're on your own for T-Mobile and US Cellular. 

Oh, and if you've yet to read it, be sure to check out our World Famous Galaxy S III review!

Best Buy offers preorders for the Sprint, AT&T And Verizon Galaxy S III

Yeah, I called them an hour ago and was told to come in and get on the list. I have $50 off there so that's why i'm buying there.

I hope they run some sort of promo like the $50 gift card they did for the EVO LTE. My wife's due for upgrade and she's still on the original Epic 4G. I'd love to get me, um, I mean her this awesome phone!

You can still purchase t mobile products at best buy mobile but instead of getting the phone in store they send it to you through mail.

I just called the Best Buy Mobile information number and they said they have nothing in their system about the Galaxy S3. I wanted to confirm their Verizon price as well as if I could use my $50 gift card. This was the 1-877-702-2211 number. Something seems to be wrong somewhere. Does anyone know if BB is an authorized Verizon reseller?

You have to go to a store, whether it's a regular BB store or a BB Mobile store. Can't do it over the phone or online. I just ordered mine today!

Anyone know if sprints version will have a sim card and be world phone capable??? Also when are we gonna actually see a review on the American version of the s3

Is there any truth to the "Verizon Double Data" ending after today? Can you get the "Double Data" through Best Buy? If I preorder today, will I get today's promotions (double data)?

Just called three different stores about the Sprint version and they told me that I could only pre-order the 16gb in either color. I tried around the Fresno/Visalia, CA area. Has anybody else gotten a different answer somewhere else? Kinda disappointed in best buy if that is the case.

If you guys are having trouble with best buy radioshack is taking preorders on the s3 for sprint att and verizon.

Be careful with any agreement you sign up for at The Shack.

I'll admit that I don't know this from personal experience, but it is my understanding that when you purchase a phone at Radio Shack you are required to sign a separate agreement, independent of the carrier agreement, with Radio Shack.

What this means is that if you have to return the phone and cancel the carrier contract, you are still under agreement with Radio Shack, and will be responsible for a separate ETF with the Shack.

I'm not saying don't do it, but just be careful!

The second agreement is the same an any authorized retailer. It is just for their files so they can prove you got it there.

i preordered mine today, and they only have the 16 gig version, i dont care, have a class 10 32gigs sd on my ET. to preorder, you have to buy a $50 gift card. the printout i got from them said that i should be expecting it to arrive at the store on the 21st, Mmmm, cant wait!

new galaxy should be coming out in a little over 4 months - what is the best price out there for this years version now?
