grazy if you have read some of the posts you would see that NL get their stock, as per everyone esle, from brightstar, also a person got a blue one last night so once again a lot of misinformation out there and I think the stores mostly have no idea what is happening so don't over react just yet.

sultanoswing: I phoned the NL in Tristram Street, Hamilton today and was told by the woman on the phone (after giving my invoice number) that it was listed as arriving on the "30th of June" - which is apparently a standard time length for preorders of any nature, but that it was expected to be "sooner", although no indication in the system she was looking at of when exactly that could be.

So - I'm?hoping?(based on this forum, who's getting their phones and nzviking's posts) that my 16GB Pebble Blue will arrive tomorrow or Wednesday, but then again....


Holy$**t really? 30th of June. I phoned them today and she said mid June still. And I ordered on Queen birthday Saturday. But mine is 32GB so I'm guessing it would be 2020 by the time I'm getting mine if your 16GB is end of the month. When did you pre ordered?

USA will get their S3 both in blue and white in 16/32 by end of this month and Verizon will get their version on the 7th July. That is what I've read online. But I am guess NZ market is not a priority for Samsung to rush out and satisfying a small portion of customers. They more likely to delaying our shipment and ferfilling the EU and UK market first and the US market as well. Think about millions of potential buyers there rather than a few thousands in NZ. Which will giving them more money? NZ or US?

Nzviking yes correct. I guess we all should start pumping out more babies to populating New Zealand to 20mil mark like the Aussie lol. You can start first though, I don't think I can afford lol.

Joke aside :)

Integer I think I recall from one opf your many posts that you were told mid June, as we haven't got to that yet maybe you should wait until that has passed instead of getting yourself wound up over something that has as yet to happen.

Basically mate chill out otherwise you will have a nervous breakdown :)

Lol I already did my friend. But since I ordered roughly the same time as he was and it is the 32G I believe that his one would have a better chance of arriving this weekend or Monday. Whereas mine has already became a myth just like my pre ordered for the S2 lol.

Ok I'm going with the conspiracy theory that was put to me that NL are extending the delivery time of the S3 to try and put off as many of the hundreds who preordered in their Queens Birthday 20% off sale stuff up as they can. That way people will pull out, get refunds and NL minimise their loss on this deal.

All these people who supposedly got the blue S3s from NL in the last couple of days don't really exist Wink

WHS had a big deal with 2D, they got preference over NL, and dicksmiths etc, its the WHS and the JB's and to a lesser extent, Harveys that got a higher allocation than the rest
