AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III Shipping Date Pushed Back

It looks like the AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III shipping date has been pushed back which means that its official release date may have been pushed back as well.

The shipping date on AT&T’s website, which originally was June 21st, has now been pushed back all the way to June 28th. The move takes place just a day after Sprint and T-Mobile said they were dealing with supply issues that would hamper both of their Samsung Galaxy S III launches. Keep in mind it says ‘on or before June 28th’ so it’s possible that AT&T will ship out units prior to that date.

AT&T has not said whether this shipping delay affects those who pre-ordered before today but we expect the carrier will make some sort of announcement soon in an effort to clarify the situation.

As it stands, AT&T has yet to announce an official release date for the Galaxy S III so it may have been anticipating the delays.

Yesterday, Sprint and T-Mobile revealed that some customers wouldn’t be able to get the Galaxy S III tomorrow, the date that both carriers announced as the Samsung Galaxy S III release date.

Sprint is going to be shipping off some 16GB Galaxy S III pre-orders by tomorrow and that 32GB pre-orders won’t be arriving until next week. Retailers aren’t expecting the device until June 28th.

As for T-Mobile, it will be the first carrier to have the Galaxy S III in retail stores but it will only have it available in 29 different cities across the United States. It’ll also have a few units for sale online tomorrow but those will likely sell out quickly.

In any event, those that ordered an AT&T Galaxy S III will want to check on the order to ensure that the device is still scheduled to arrive when it originally was supposed to arrive.

We’ll update you if and when we hear more.

    It’s just rude how AT&T leaves their customers (fanboys specifically) in the dark. Just announce your delays already, so we can stop checking our emails every 5 minutes looking for our shipping announcement. Honestly, at this point, with all your competitors announcing delays, what can be gained by not speaking?

    I agree. Ordered the first day and was told and confirmed in e-mail that it would ship the 18th. Now I am being told not til next week by reps. None of the reps seem to have a clue. They all have a different answer. Way to lose customers AT&T! Just admit Sprint beat you to the game. It would be nice if they just would release a statement!!!

    I totally agree with the other posts. I was really annoyed with the customer service reps and AT&T. I ordered the GS3 5 or 6 mins after 12am June 6th, I got a order received email from At&t indicating it will be here on or before June 21st. Next thing you know my link to check the status of my order shows nothing but a blank screen. I called customer service and she was like oh well it says back order but that doesn’t mean anything. Getting red as she speaks. Hang up called today, customer service was worse than it was yesterday. Well ma’am your phone is on pre order and basically we don’t know when you will receive it. No communication from AT&T. Again, way to lose customers…
