Maybe it is a good thing we haven't been shipped ours yet. I heard some of these phones in the UK burst in to white flames because the battery and hardware got too hot.
i belive theres are diffrent models.
i see white.
if its not the blue one then its okay?

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 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
