Verizon Galaxy S4 Shipping Ahead of Release Date

Verizon has started shipping off Samsung Galaxy S4 pre-orders and it appears that some of those Verizon Galaxy S4 pre-orders could arrive ahead of the device’s May 23rd release date that will take place both online and in stores.

We have received numerous tips from those who pre-ordered the Verizon Galaxy S4 through Verizon who say that the carrier has begun shipping out Verizon Galaxy S4 pre-orders, ahead of the device’s scheduled May 23rd release date, a release that other retailers will subscribe to as well.

Like AT&T though, it appears that Verizon may be rewarding those who pre-ordered with the device ahead of schedule as shipping projections for some put the device as arriving on Wednesday, though with devices shipping out on May 18th, that would not fall in line with two day shipping. That leaves the door open for an early release. This is great news for those that pre-ordered through Verizon and it should mean that many, or most of those who pre-ordered the device, at least through Verizon, will get the heralded phone either before or on release day.

The Verizon Galaxy S4 of course is also available through a number of other outlets as well including Best Buy, Staples, RadioShack and Walmart. Best Buy and Staples have informed us that they will have the device in stock on May 23rd as well, something that bodes extremely well for those that pre-ordered the device through them. RadioShack and Walmart have remained mum with us, though we imagine they will follow suit as well.

Verizon’s version of the Galaxy S4 will be the last variant from a major carrier to arrive, following in the footsteps of the AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and U.S. Cellular models, all of which arrived in some form or another in April.

This model won’t be the last Galaxy S4 to arrive though as several smaller carriers are in line to debut their models in the weeks ahead. Samsung will also be delivering several new Galaxy S4 devices in the coming months with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Activ and a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini in the cards for later this year.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is Samsung’s latest and greatest and it comes equipped with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 13MP camera, sleek and slim design and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

Thanks to Tyler, Brian and everyone else that sent this in!

    My local Verizon store said that even though my S4 would be arriving at the store a few days ahead of the release date, I would not be able to pick it up until the 23rd. :(

      Same here. It is absolutely infuriating. My store physically has my phone, but won’t sell it to me. Why did Verizon even include shipping information if it didn’t matter how early it came in? They should have at least stated in the update emails that you wouldn’t be able to pick up your phone until the 23rd.

      Apparently not you and you’re apparently a very unhappy discontented person. I’m sorry. If you’d be so kind as to climb back into your hole we’d be eternally grateful. Thank you.

      You must be a very lonely person without any friends. It’s time for you to put your head up where the sun doesn’t shine.

    Hey Jim W. I think our “friend” B, which probably stands for “Boring” should try to get a life.

      Hello Jason,

      Yes Verizon sent a shipping notification with a tracking number. Mine was UPS so I’m tracking it on their site.

        Jim, just curious where you are located? Mine is coming to PA via FedEx, was shipped Saturday morning, originally scheduled to arrive on Wed. at 11 am. However, my FedEx tracking page says that the phone has not moved since 5 am Monday, I checked early this morning and the delivery was moved back to Wed. at 4:30 pm, now it currently says Wed. at 7pm. Needless to say, I am starting to get frustrated with Verizon and FedEx. I have been dealing with a failing LG Vouge and have been waiting for this phone to come out and now to be shipped since about December.

          Meant to say LG Vortex. This phone sucks, I’ve basically been using my Ipod Touch as my phone whenever I have had access to WIFI because my Vortex is so slow and likes to freeze. I’m too excited to get my GS4, I just wish it would hurry up.

        • Jim W says

          Sorry guy that sucks! I’m in San Diego and work for UPS so they shipped mine UPS overnight. My tracking shows out for delivery now. Should get it any minute. I hope you get an update soon!

        • Jeremiah M. says

          Ya really can’t be too upset, you are still getting the phone sooner than originally announced. I am also waiting, and my tracking did has looked identical to yours, no activity further than Memphis, TN since Sat, saying it will be delivered by 7pm Wed.
