Verizon customers, you might not get your Samsung Galaxy S3 until July 6

June 6, 2012

You’ve seen the leaked pictures of Verizon’s Samsung Galaxy S3 to help quench your gadget thirst before. But amidst the good news that you’d be able to pre-order your Samsung Galaxy S3 from the carrier starting today, on June 6, you may want to dial down the excitement a bit as the phone apparently won’t be delivered to your doorstep until next month.

Droid-Life has heard from several sources that Verizon would only ship the Galaxy S3 no early than July 6, with some even mentioning that July 9 would be the delivery date. Especially for the latter, it appears there’s a pictorial evidence to prove it, as you can see below.  The date seems to have been confirmed by several customers who have talked to Verizon reps about the July 9 shipping date of the phone.

But of course, until Verizon puts it in writing for the whole world to see on their website, amongst other places, please take this information with a grain of salt.

If you’re rather disheartened about the possibility of not getting to play with your Samsung Galaxy S3 this month, which isn’t helped  with the looming disappearance of the unlimited data plan on Verizon, you can consider pre-ordering the phone on Best Buy instead – which will have three variants of the Galaxy S3 from Sprint, AT&T and Verizon Wireless. The online retailer seems ready to ship out the phone on June 28, which would make it more than a week early than the rumored Verizon’s shipping date.  Decisions, decisions..
