We had seen the beginnings of this yesterday, however it looks like AT&T has since offered an official statement on the matter. Simply put, some of the AT&T Galaxy S III pre-orders are going to be delayed a little bit. And in addition, those placing an order moving forward will have a short wait before their handset will be delivered. According to the AT&T statement;
“Customers who were previously quoted a delivery date of June 21st should now expect their device to arrive no later than Monday, June 25th.”
As for those still ordering today, the carrier noted that they “currently estimate future pre-orders to arrive within 10 business days based on available supply.”
Finally, if you have already placed a pre-order and are wondering about your delivery status — it looks like you will be notified. AT&T will be sending both an SMS message and an email to all of the impacted customers.
