As the Internet backlash started building against Verizon for locking the bootloader of its Galaxy S3 model, Big Red tried to get out of it by suggesting it’s actually all Samsung’s fault. The allegation seems…
If you aren’t bothered by the fact that the phone comes with a locked booatloader, and if you don’t feel like waiting or paying full price for the special “Developer Edition” of the device that Samsung plans to release, you can now get the Samsung Galaxy S3 on Verizon’s stores and virtual shelves.
Ironically, the Big Red will not be offering that fiery-looking Garnet Red model of the Galaxy S3 that AT&T has just launched. So you’ll have to make do with the same Pebble Blue and White Ceramic Samsung Galaxy S3 that others have been brandishing for weeks. The price for the 16GB and 32GB model of the phone on Verizon hasn’t changed, as they both still cost $199.99 and $249.99 with a two-year contract.
If you order from the website, note that Verizon will only ship the phone out by July 16. It’s an improvement from the July 19 shipping date that they set a couple of days ago. Since you’ve already waited for so long to play with the Galaxy S3, a couple of days more may seem like a lifetime. If that’s the case, it’s best to make your way to Verizon stores and hope that they have enough stock of the phone.
We hope by now everyone who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 have gotten their phones. As for those who are still undecided, will you be splashing out for Verizon’s flagship offering?
