Although the big four carriers in the US have already released their variants of the Samsung Galaxy S3, some folks are still waiting for one of the regional carriers to start offering the super phone. The first smaller carrier to step up to the plate is U.S. Cellular, which has officially started taking orders of the Galaxy S3 on its website.
You can now buy the 16GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S3 for $199.99 (after a mail-in rebate), with both the Pebble Blue and Ceramic White color available to choose from. Note that the price requires a data plan.
As for those who like their phone’s internal storage to be bigger, the 32GB model of the Galaxy S3 is up for pre-order for $249.99 (after mail-in rebate). It’s only available in white, however. U.S. Cellular said on its Twitter account that there will be a slight delay in shipping out the 32GB model, but it shouldn’t be “later than July 23rd.”
If you prefer to get your Galaxy S3 the old fashioned way, the phone will be available in U.S. Cellular stores by the end of the week.
As the sixth largest wireless carrier in the country, US Cellular has just rolled out the first segment of its 4G LTE network in Q1 2012. Those who live in select markets in Iowa, Wisconsin, Maine, North Carolina, Texas, and Oklahoma can really make use of the Galaxy S3’s 4G LTE connectivity on U.S. Cellular.
