While the Verizon and Sprint only have 2 models to offer right now, the white and pebble blue models.
So if you’re looking forward to preorder the Samsung GALAXY S III, Verizon, AT&T and Sprint are all putting the same price tags, $199.99 for the 16GB model with 2-year contract attached. And if you want to get the 32GB model of Samsung GALAXY S III, you can get it from Sprint and Verizon for $249.99 with also 2-year contract attached.
Anyway, besides the offerings from those 3 giant carriers, one phone retailer, Best Buy is also accepting preorders for the GALAXY S III. At the big box locations of Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile, both 16GB and 32GB models can be pre-ordered with the same price tags, $199.99 for the 16GB model with 2-year contract and $249.99 for the 32GB model with also 2-year contract. And both models are available to choose from 3 selected carriers, Verizon, Sprint and AT&T (only the 16GB model for the AT&T).
What about the launch date of the device? Sprint announced through its website, it’ll try its best to release the phone around June 21st. Verizon also promises that July 9th is the launch date for Samsung GALAXY S III, while AT&T still has no clue when the phone will launch yet.
And what about the preorder offerings on 2 remaining carriers, U.S. Cellular and T-Mobile? Even though the preorders are not yet accepted on these 2 carriers, but U.S. Cellular is said will begin accepting preorder on June 12th, while T-Mobile schedules both 16GB and 32GB models of Samsung GALAXY S III will be available to purchase on June 21st.
The international version of Samsung GALAXY S III is also available to buy at Amazon for $899 for the pebble blue variant, and $879 for the white model.

Samsung GALAXY S III Users of Verizon and AT&T Wont Get the 50GB FREE Cloud Storage from Dropbox
With the “Next Galaxy” phone is just about to arrive in the US in the near weeks ahead, many people have been really busy lately to pre-order the phone because some major US’s carriers have begun accepting preorders of this
Samsung GALAXY S IIIfor its loyal customers. From Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and U.S. Cellular have all given some information regarding the preorder date, the release date, the price and also the contract plans of this phone since few days ago.
from all the features that can be found on Samsung GALAXY S III, one that really distracts attention of users is no doubt the huge 50GB of cloud storage from Dropbox that is provided by the carriers for FREE if users agree to sign up the 2-year contract.
Unfortunately, from those carriers, apparently, many subscribers of Verizon and AT&T must be ready to cry and be left disappointed because according to Dropbox, these 2 carriers decide to not providing the Dropbox service in their 2-year contract agreements. Which means, if you pre-order the GALAXY S III on either Verizon or AT&T with 2-year-contract attached, there will be no FREE 50GB cloud storage from Dropbox.
Well, it’s too bad because in the deal of this Samsung GALAXY S III, Dropbox has promised it will be giving users of this phone with FREE 48GB of storage on Dropbox, with an extra 2GB that is actually given automatically when users agree to sign the 2-year contract paper. So in total, Dropbox gives you a FREE 50GB of free storage in its server.
And the worst thing, if you happen to live in one of the countries named China, Cuba, Syria, Sudan, North Korea and Iran, you also won’t get the extra storage deals.
The Preorder of Samsung GALAXY S III on U.S Cellular Costs More Money than The Other 3 Carriers
In the upcoming weeks, the inhabitants in the US will be ready to welcome the arrival of
Samsung GALAXY S III in their beloved land. With the preorders of this phone will be officially available anytime soon on some major US’s carriers and retailers as well (i.e., Verizon, Sprint, AT&T, Best Buy retailer stores), so now it’s time for another US carrier, U.S. Cellular, to prepare the preorders of this “Next Galaxy” phone for its loyal or new subscribers.
If you want to snatch your very own
Samsung GALAXY S III on U.S. Cellular, starting on Tuesday, this carrier will begin accepting preorders of this smartphone. With Verizon and Sprint both offering the 16GB and 32GB models in pebble blue and white models, while AT&T only has 16GB model but offers this phone in 3 variety case covers (i.e., red, white and pebble blue), the U.S. Cellular brings you the 16GB and 32GB models both in pebble and white.
Unfortunately, unlike the other 3 major carriers, U.S. Cellular surprisingly will ask its customers more money if they intend to buy Samsung GALAXY S III from this carrier.
So if on Verizon and Sprint, the 16GB model costs you $199.99, while 32GB model costs you $249.99. And then, the 16GB variant with AT&T contract attached also costs the same $199.99 price tag (the 32GB model is not available for AT&T carrier, remember?), then as an U.S Cellular subscriber, you will need to dig your money a little bit deeper in your pocket because the 16GB and the 32GB models of Samsung GALAXY S III will cost you $299.99 and 349.99 respectively, which is a hundred more expensive than the other 3 aforementioned carriers above (i.e., Verizon, Sprint and AT&T).
And of course, these offerings above require you to sign the 2-year contract paper on your chosen carrier.
But surely, since you will pay a hundred more for the device on U.S. Cellular, then you will definitely get something more from this carrier than the other 3, right? Besides, who would want to pay a $100 more for Samsung GALAXY S III if you could get the same exact device on other 3 carriers that cost you less $100 money, right? There must be a bonus for that.
