VM's second LTE phone. Samsung Galaxy S III

New phone coming!!! Mid-June.

Samsung Galaxy S III.

$299 is what I read, supposed to be at wal-mart as well.

Will post more as I learn more.

$399.88 will be the going price at Wal-Mart. Emp said 2 were on order, but no "in-store" date specifically.

somewhat predictable because Straight-Talk has it for $439.99

too pricey of an upgrade for me.

i'll stick with my Samsung Galaxy Victory.

I noticed they have the Victory on sale for 188... wonder how low it will drop when the S3 hits?

Boost Mobile before Virgin... Samsung Galaxy S III

Looks like BOOST MOBILE will get it before Virgin Mobile.

not surprising. they can get $55 from a plan on a newer phone

$399 price confirmed.

Re: VM's second LTE phone. Samsung Galaxy S III

Well, it popped on the website this morning.......

Guess the previous statement I read online was wrong.

But is it worth $399..........$200 more than the Victory?

the answer is *NO*! Although an option, its disabled on the Victory and S3 for now........
Virgin has given no date of when they'll enable it.
I'm sure they're afraid everyone will be sucking tons of data using a hotspot on a faster LTE connection.

so, if you're buying one of these phones for the hotspot feature, its not gonna work as of now.
