If the phone that burned was in the UK, it was likely the international version, not the US version.  It has a different processor that may interact with the battery in a different way from the US version.

I am aware they are most likely different models. I am trying to find a positive to keep me patient. Smiley Very Happy

I was hoping to have a new phone this weekend and now, at this point, I will be lucky if I have one next weekend.

I just received a text message stating the following: "AT&T Free Msg: Due to manufacturer supply constraints of the 4G LTE Samsung Galaxy S III, your new smartphone will now arrive no later than Monday, June 25th."

 

Looks like they are blaming Samsung but at least they are giving us something to chew on. On a side note, I preordered on June 6th.

I called 3 AT&T stores and no one knew anything about the release date.  I called customer support and no one had any idea.  I find it strange that the entire company is clueless on the release date of this phone

I heard that the release date is unknown now, as well.  AT&T is blaming Samsung for the delay.  I'm glad that I went ahead and pre-ordered it and have it now.  I was waiting for the in-store release.

Today I went to the store and they said "We hope we get them by Monday July 2nd".

 

This is not AT&T, Samsung had them delayed and we might see the price drop as well. Target already offering (pre-order) them for $149 with 2 year agreement

The release date for AT&T was the 21st, but because of shortages, it got pushed to the 28th for some people

I ordered the 21 and received mine 2 days later...the phone is officially out for AT&T but the re will most likely be backorders....just keep calling for a tracking number or order status...thats what I did
