Samsung Galaxy S3 Reservation Thread.

Meowmix
I'm a Trusted Advisor

So Rogers just at 12PM today opened up the reservation& pre orders for new customers & existing customers as well. I for one will reserve it in just a bit.

 

I would like to know who reservered it & what is your number & Status. Keep posting your number & status when it changes to let everyone know what is going on & all. Also the release date is set for June 20th like every other carrier is saying.

 

I want this to be the only thread for the Reservation of the S3 on here so we do not have so many threads.

 

& Go:)

Still #2.  No change in status.  Hope Rogers will send some out the door soon (would be nice before the 27th) or whatever the release date is!

I'm number 119 in the line. When I signed up about 3 weeks ago, I was #129.

 

Does this pre-order reservation allow you to buy the phone outright?

I am #155 for 16 gb pebble blue.

 

I hear that the release date has been pushed back a week to June 27, is this true?

 

Does this mean that I will actually bea able to get my hands on one on June 27?

When I signed up about 2 weeks ago for the Pebble 16GB I was #207, yesterday #184, today #183.  What's the highest number ('longest wait') so far?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Reservation Thread.

I'm #3 in line - got nothing from Rogers (no emails, no phone calls)

From 336 to 331 white 16gb. This thing has inductive charging! And a notification led! Wondering if I should expect this on release date or if I'm too far back. Any idea if Samsung negotiated with Rogers to not load this up with bloatware?

Im # 77 for a 32G white.

 

I have not heard anything direct from rogers about a delay, only read it online. Went into a Rogers + store today and asked if they are getting the phones tomorrow and the guy said as far as he knows yes but doesnt know how many and he had not heard of a puch back date...take all that with a grain of salt, sometimes we know more than the employees do it seems.

 

despite my resvervation I will be calling around tomorrow to see if any of the stores have them...if I find one I will buy it...not going to wait for mine to show up. I resevered a RAZR last fall and my friend just walked into a store and bought one while I was still waiting for mine 😞

I'm #32 for the Pebble Blue 32GB.

 

I'm calling Rogers tomorrow to see when I will get it.  Fingers crossed, it will be soon.

Samsung Galaxy S III launch in Canada pushed back a week to June 27th.

 

The Samsung Galaxy S III seems to be a victim of its own success. Actually, the real victims here are those Canadians who pre-ordered the phone, expecting it to ship by June 20th. Not only was that date leaked as the Canadian launch date for the handset, it was also the date that Best Buy Canada and the Future Shop said it would release the phone on. Now, a tweet from Samsung Canada  changes everything. The message says that it will be June 27th when the Samsung Galaxy S III launches in the country and blames the delay on "unprecedented demand". While no official figure has ever been revealed for the pre-orders, before the international launch of the unit a Samsung executive said that 9 million units had been reserved. As amazing as that number was, that figure was apparently compiled prior to the start of pre-orders in North America.

 

Besides the tweet, Samsung released a statement that basically says the same thing as the message posted on Twitter, but also adds that any shortages are expected to be short-lived as the Korean based tech giant "ramp(s) up production".

I tweeted asking Samsung Canada if pre-orders could be expected to ship on 27th, I have not yet received a reply.

Has anyone seen the pebble blue version in person yet?  I'm curious as to what it's like as some photos make it look very blue and very cheesy while in others it appears to be darker and closer to almost black, or at least navy.

 

Also, I am at #55 now (was #61).

 

I just reserved a pebble blue one under my wife's account and she's #549.  I was hoping they'd both come in at the same time so I could compare and choose.  I'm not so sure that's going to happen now!

I justy wish they would hurry up and ship them out already, I got rid of my POS galaxy nexus to buy this and until it gets here Im stuck using my old sony X10...not exactly current technology...although it does get better signal than the Nexus 🙂

 

Im a bit annoyed that Rogers didnt send out any type of communication that the launch date would be delayed, not there fault of course as thats on Samsung but it would be decent of them to at leasty give the people who pre-ordered a heads up.

My number went down another point to #61 from #62 a couple of day ago

Mine number started at 95 for the 32mb Pebble Blue, but I've dropped to 90 now.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Reservation Thread.

If your numbers have dropped, that's because people are cancelling their pre-order. I have been #6 for 16GB White since the first day you could pre-order, and it's still "OPEN" so as far as I know there has been no movement on that.

 

I really don't expect anything to start until next week either ON June 27 or the day after. We shall see.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S3 Reservation Thread.

Dropped another point to #60 from yesterday. I guess some people are tired of waiting?  Good news for us.

Looks like the Bell stores are already receiving their units...

 

Samsung Galaxy S III shipments start to arrive at Bell stores

 

I'm #54 and it still hasn't shipped yet. 😞

#271 for a Pebble Blue 16gb.  I was #294 I believe when I first reserved the device.   So looking forward to ditching my BB Curve 8900.  Can't wait!!
