Samsung GALAXY S IIIcan also be pre-ordered by people living in the US residents on U.S Cellular, besides other major carriers in the US soil. And we also know that the 16GB and 32GB models of GALAXY S III cost more money on the U.S Cellular, $299.99 for the first 16GB variant and $349.99 for the 32GB version, of course with 2-year-contract attached, unlike the other US carriers that only ask you a hundred less money for both models.
So, if you’re wiling to be a U.S Cellular’s customer in the next 2 year when getting the “Next Galaxy” phone on this carrier, then this is your chance because
U.S Cellular now starts accepting the preorders of Samsung GALAXY S III for its customers.
Similar with the other carriers in the US (except for AT&T that only handles the 16GB model, remember?), U.S Cellular also offers you the Marble White and Pebble Blue variants, both on 16GB and 32GB models. However, if you pre-order the Samsung GALAXY S III from this carrier, there is an extra homework that U.S Cellular asks you to do if you want to be its loyal subscriber, and that is to return the “$100 mailing in rebate” forms that this carrier sends you along with the device.
But, if you still don’t understand, this is how it works. Since we all know that the price that U.S Cellular asks you to pay for the 16GB or 32GB model are $100 more expensive than the other carriers in the US, they will send you the $100 mailing-in-rebate forms along with the device that you should take care of later.
So, once you’ve received the Samsung GALAXY S III unit in your hands, you should also get the rebate forms back to the carrier as soon as possible before the rebate is over.
Anyway, based on U.S Cellular’s official website, if you pre-order this phone on this carrier, your very own Samsung GALAXY S III will arrive to your house around 4 to 6 weeks from now. So you should expect the device to knock on your door around July 12th – July 26th.
However, if you want to pre-order this “Next Galaxy” phone in other flavor, the preorder offerings from Verizon, Sprint or AT&T might be what you’re looking for, since the 16GB model of this phone is priced for $199.99 and the 32GB Sprint or Verizon’s variant can be pre-ordered for $249.99, a hundred much cheaper than what U.S Cellular asks you to pay.
Now, Samsung GALAXY S III in 16GB and 32GB Variants Can be Preorder on Canadian Carrier, Telus
As many of you know, Samsung GALAXY S III will be coming to the US region and Canada as well in this summer in June.

Samsung GALAXY S III Sold on Canada’s Videotron for Only $99.95
If the people in the US have been a bit busy lately in pre-ordering the Samsung GALAXY S III on major US carriers from Verizon, Sprint, AT&T and U.S Cellular, then those people in Canada will also be made busy because one of Canada’s carriers, Videotron now begins accepting the preorders for the 16GB model of the “Next Galaxy” phone in its land. However, unlike the preorder offerings from the US carriers, surprisingly, on Videotron,
the preorder for GALAXY S IIIwill cost much cheaper than those pre-ordering the units from US carriers. Yeah, on Videotron, the 16GB variant will only cost you $99.95. Isn’t that cheap?
Unfortunately, if on US carriers, you will only be tied with the 2-year-contract, on the other hand with Videotron, you must be willing to sign the 3-year-contract paper if you’re eager to get
the Samsung GALAXY S III phone from this Canadian’s carrier.
Anyway, since it costs much cheaper, then this Videotron’s offering will only be available for a limited time. So once the inventory that is given to the customers runs out, the $99.95 preorder price will revert back to normal again to $149.95 with also 3-year-contract attached.
Unfortunately, this offering can be a bit interesting only if we look at the $99.95 price tag that is put on the device. However, on the other hand, the 3-year-contract paper of Samsung GALAXY S III that many Canadian people need to sign can be somehow a bit torturing for some of them.
Well, that’s because usually, a cell phone company, especially Samsung, releases the next series of its high profile smartphone like Samsung GALAXY S III every 1 year or around that time frame.
So if you’re willing to sign that 3-year-contract paper, it means that you must also be willing to stick with that phone for quite long time no matter what, even if the Samsung GALAXY S4, Samsung GALAXY S5 or even Samsung GALAXY S6 are released by Samsung.
Anyway, according to Videotron, if you preorder the GALAXY S III phone from this carrier, your can expect the phone to ship on June 20th.
