    Blue only? It would be silly to pay $80 extra for the white phone but I want the white. I went I looked. It looks like it is blue only. I am ready to upgrade.

    I wish my contract was up. My Droid X finally bit the dust and I'm going to have to downgrade until November. Shwomp womp. I need to get myself looking for more giveaways.

    I wish Samsung would do a all brushed Silver version of the GS3 :P That would look SEXY!!! :P

    • siypion

      Hmmm... maybe a custom color for "Sprint" that would be nice seeing as ATT has a Redish one... Wait! if that happen then Verizon would demand a GOLD Chrome one.

  • TheStumblingBlock

    Why on earth would anybody want to switch to Sprint on purpose?

    • fixxmyhead

      Lol I keep telling myself the same thing. Some people are just retarded

  • Slighter

    Don't do it, Sprint is a fucking mess right now. Not just in my area, look at their user forums. Calls? sometimes. Texts, sometimes days late - sometimes only when I make a call. Worst decision other than getting married

      I love my Sprint service and new Galaxy S3! Just got back from South Korea and perfect roaming everywhere I went and instant test messages receved! Don't believe the bitchers....

  • yarrellray

    Great deal I must say..

  • B.lance23

    @slighter that's just in YOUR area. There's also other forums of many customers including myself with great service. Don't hype up all the negativity when it's not that serious to begin with.

    • Maverick

      Great service with Sprint! Have had 2.45Mbps dn & .65Mbps up on 3G. Streaming with little to no buffering I've also had great service internationally although it is expensive never the less service was outstanding.

  • chuck

    I have Sprint and updated to the galaxy 3s. Love Sprint and the phone.

  • lean6

    Stay away from Sprint!

    This seems to only be for new customers. When I put in that I am upgrading and I am part of a family plan the price is $149.99

    • Maverick

      That's better then $199.99 at sprint however I believe sprint is also running free online order.

      • Maverick

        Ooops I meant to say free activation/upgrade fee when ordering online with sprint.

  • denny henson

    Yeah sprint is a mess at the moment but I'm stuck under contract until this time next year and I want this phone so outside of spending $100$$$$ of dollars I'll have to suffer.
    Until next time.

    I wish Sprint was doing better and not hemorrhaging customers and had a chance to get anywhere near Verizon in LTE availability. But none of those are true. They bet on the wrong horse with WiMax while Verizon is killing it with LTE.

  • Lou

    Jesus, every time I see a GSIII sale, I am hoping it's T-Mo's version. But nope! Its always either sprint, or verizon.

    God forbid The T-Mo version ever gets a sale, especially since its the one with the HIGHEST PRICE.

    these deals are fairly worthless. most of us are in contracts and spend most of our time with our carrier NOT eligible for an upgrade. seeing at its only once every 20 months or so
