Just called WHS again.. Twice already today and I told them I want to cancel my order if I won't be able to get it by today and the guy said he will check and after a while he said as I'm based in AKL CBD I'll get it later today.

Should I believe or not?? I just called one vodafone shop on queue st and they give a discount from 1049 to 999 plus a 16gb micro sd.
It's not a bad deal as I paid 949 at WHS without the micro sd card.

Just rang Noel Leeming and they confirmed $839 on preorder. WHS order hadn't come through yet so called them up. They said it would be dispatched today for delivery tomorrow. So I cancelled it.

I am picking mine up from WHS stationary in CBD too...I called up the head office and the girl said it was a mix up by 2 Degrees as they didn't order enough for WHS and now they dispatched some from their own stock to WHS. She said all stores in Auckland should be getting few phones this afternoon to cover up the pre-orders. She asked me to wait until 2PM and then go into WHS at westfield and I should definitely have one by then. Now I am keeping my fingers crossed!!!!

You can get a 32GB micro sd for a really cheap price online! i got mine for around $34 (including delivery). 

Get a 16Gb from JB for 944 and buy a 32 GB micro sd for no more than 35 online...976!!

Ohhhhhh should I call them and ask them if I can pick it up from the shop?

I called them again and said already dispatched it and customers who pre ordered cannot get it through the shop.
I'll be getting it in the afternoon:)
Happy to get it soon!!!!!

I would think so but give them a call before you head there(358 4454).
Called a sec ago, they haven't received yet.

Called Noels here too, same story as above "no discount on mobiles"

Went into Tory Street, discount given :)

Second GS3 arrives next week! For the wife, to stay in her good books

Will probably gift the other phones to my family members, time to upgrade a few of them

Oh dear why oh why didnt I stay away from JB HiFi.  Looked at the Galaxy S3 just to look no way am buying one.  30 minutes later walk out with new Galaxy S3.   Should have stayed away from temptation.
I am weak willed. Slap my hand.

S3 sold out in all branches here at Auckland except Wairau Park which has 6 left in stock and they are giving it for $839. Too far for me to travel at this time of day and by the time I finish work all 6 will be gone anyways :(

WHS is my only hope now!!!!

Why don't you ask them to hold it, give them your CC to secure it or something..

Didn't think about it...besides I am not sure if WHS can cancel a 12 months interest free already charged on my GE Creditline card....

That's true. Yes you might just need to wait under those circumstances.

Just wandered down to 2 Degrees Lambton Quay and played with their demo model. If they actually had stock, I may have purchased a white one without realising what I was doing! Seems like I need to roll down to Noel Leemings Tory St and pre-order a blue one Laughing

another -1 to WHS!

Got refund from WHS on my 16GB blue pre-order, went to Noel Leeming Moorhouse Ave in Christchurch. They had to double check on discount, but I also now have a receipt for a Blue 16GB SGS3 purchase price after 20% discount $839.20 plus 33 flybuys.

Now the waiting starts again.
