As Verizon continues to have trouble meeting demand for Samsung's new flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S III, the authorized online phone retailer Wirefly is currently offering the device immediately, and for $50 less.
With Big Red's website stating that orders for the device placed today won't ship until July 19, customers tired of waiting for Verizon can find the 16GB model in Pebble Blue available on Wirefly, with a discounted price tag of $150, compared to the carrier's asking price of $200. This deal is available for both new new customers and those looking to upgrade.
To be clear, Verizon is taking orders for the Galaxy S III, and has been doing so since late last week, but can not keep up with the pace these are coming in, to the point where it is taking an extra day or so to ship units to consumers.
