Pre-order date?

in the Article: Verizon's Galaxy S III Arrives July 10 forum

This must mean the pre-orders will arrive before July 10th. Has anyone heard if this is the case? Mine still says July 11th under order status.

Victek said: I can't get interested in the iPhone, but the Galaxy IIIS has really good specs and is getting great reviews. Quad core CPU, 4.8" screen, good battery life, 1080p video, it goes on and on. If I were ready to upgrade this is the phone I would look at first. I believe in laying on hands though - when it becomes available go to the store and test drive it. The US version of the Galaxy ...

Re: "Do you REALLY think that any update will fix the signal?"

The Galaxy Nexus on VZW is well known for signal issues. I live in a full signal area and that phone would still drop calls or drop out the audio when in a call. I'd sell that phone on eBay & get a strong signal performer like the Moto Razr, if you need 4G.

Yes you can - one of the many conveniences of having a sim card (4G).

Of course it can be added on and there is nothing illegal about doing it. Do you remember a few weeks back when AT&T was doing this for customers who have iPhones to keep them from going to Verizon. Really, Will is a reputable person and just wants to make some commission as we all do. You need to chill and quit accusing people of wrong doing.

Sometimes using a hair dryer also helps. Give it at least 24 hours to dry out before turning it on to test it.

It more than likely is the network in your area not the phones. A new OS will not help your situation. Your phones are not very old. I would try out a different network on one of the lines before switching all of them over. Good Luck -

You are better off staying with the G1 on T-Mobile. The Droid would be the best choice if you have to make the move to Verizon.

Every manufacturer is trying to compete by producing touchscreen smartphones with similar features. Android phones are known by most smartphone users. AT&T is coming out with one in the near future. This OS has become very popular.

I had an iphone on At&t. I have used the 2G, 3G, 3GS on their service. I loved the phone but got endless dropped calls and dead-air calls. This was all over Arizona. I switched my iphone to Tmobile's service and do not have any dropped calls (it's been 3 wks) and voice quality is excellent. This is my experience with the iphone and it made a huge difference not using it on At&t. I ...

Whenever a carrier gets a phone that other cariers & their customers want there is always people finding ways to belittle the network it is on. Unlike the other poster who's friend is in AZ, I get no dropped calls and my service works great here. I believe he has some problems but as we all know it depends on other factors as well. Don't listen to anyone but yourself. Try it and if you ...

This plan will be nationwide shortly but apparently it is only a "Loyalty Plan for customers of 22 months or more" in San Francisico. As I stated before, this is not going to go over well for new customers of Tmobile's. It is great they are rewarding their longtime customers but it will upset potential new & existing customers who this plan will not be made available to. I am betting when this is launched nationally it ...

Tmobile is going to drive new customers away with this type of "loyalty plan". Noone is going to appreciate the fact that they will not be able to get this plan as a new customer. The need to rethink to whom this plan is made available. The $135 credit for new customers who port to them is nice but it would be better if new customers, as well as all current customers can take advantage of this ...

I also use the Invisible Shield by Zagg on my Storm. It works very well. I can barely notice it is on there. They have a kiosk in a few malls by me so I went there and had them install it. I have used them for several of my touch screen phones & have never had a problem with the sensitivity of the touch. Give them a try I think you will be pleased.

I have a Storm which I am using on TMobile and it works great! The new software version made all the difference. My only complaint is the Edge internet is very slow. I have been tempted to switch to Verizon for faster speeds.

I heard from a very reliable manager at a Tmobile Direct store that the Storm will be coming out on Tmobile in February. No, he is not talking about the 8900 which will be out on Feb. 11. Can anyone else confirm this. My main question is it going to be 3G or just Edge w/wifi like the 8900??

If I were you I would activate a temporary number on At&t and check their service out for the 30 days before porting both of your numbers. Hope your experience with At&t is better than mine has ...

That is a good question. I was wondering the same thing. I use to have an instinct but the slow browser & poor page rendering was the main reason I returned it. I don't think this phone can compete with the iphone and not just because of the browser. Yes, it does have some very nice features but there are to many features that need major updates.

That is very strange. I even tried typing town (space) homes and then erasing the space and it still did the same thing! I may be returning this phone since the software seems to be very buggy. Have you noticed any other such issues?
