Verizon will now ship new Galaxy S3 online orders on July 19

by: Bams SadewoJuly 10, 2012

We know how convenient it is to buy things online. With a click of a button (or two), you’ll have the goods shipped to your front door in no time at all. But if you’re planning to buy THE hottest Android item of the year – at least for the time being – through Verizon’s website, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for the deliveryman to knock on your door.

Following the delayed release of Samsung Galaxy S3 in its stores, Verizon has now pushed back the shipping date for people who buy the mighty phone online. Initially, the delivery date for the Galaxy S3 was set to July 11, but it’s now been changed to July 19.

There’s no guessing that the delay can be probably boiled down to Big Red trying to meet the delivery for all pre-order customers and make sure that they still have enough stock in their stores. Keeping this in mind, if you really need to get your mitts on Android’s shiniest toy, we suggest you brave the hot weather and make a quick stop at your local Verizon stores.

As for those who have pre-ordered the Galaxy S3, here’s hoping that everyone will receive their unit soon and won’t be troubled by any annoying delay. Feel free to leave your comments below on the shipment status and share the good news with others.

    Maybe Verizon should refund the $30 upgrade / processing fee to those who will not get their S3 on the date promised.

      Oh, no worries folks. I purchased my Galaxy Nexus on the day it was released. I am still waiting for the REAL Nexus accessories (i.e. quick connect dock) for it only 8 months later!!! Verizion is really poking the pooch these days when it comes to honoring their commitments and their customers service is at an all time low. This comes from a customer that goes all the way back to their initial cell phone offerings before they even used the name VERIZON. I have no doubt it is due to them playing with the OS trying to limit user options ah la Apple. I don’t do Apple for a reason Verizion – my gardens don’t have walls thank you very much! This will probably be my last contract with them I am sorry to say…….

    I preordered on the 7th or 8th of June I think and mine was shipped yesterday (Monday) morning to arrive tomorrow (Wednesday) the 11th of July.

  • Just received two of them TODAY!!!! Hopefully others will get them as well.

  • I ordered mine through “Choose your own wireless” and it came when it was promised. I think Verizon is doing something to theirs. Trying to lock them down more or something.


    The store where I preordered my S3 from called me today because my phone came in! I got to the store and they opened the box, NO PHONE! The accessories were all there, but no phone in the box! After many calls to the big V they are telling me that my only option is to place another order and it will be shipped on the 19th! Very DISSAPPOINTED! Not accepting this as an answer.

      That’s not Verizon’s fault. That happens all the time with FedEx and UPS. Shitty employees steal the phones in a quick grab and sell them off in CL.
