Black Samsung Galaxy S3

I just recently bought the White one with rogers, and I feel so annoyed with it already. I think I have 14 days to return it?

I am wondering when the black version will be coming out, does anyone know? What are your thoughts on White vs Blue? I see people posting pictures showing the lighting of the back keys etc bleeding through the white casing which doesnt happen with the blue...

Was it a hardware upgrade? I think you only have max. 30 mins talk time.

New or Upgrade, I believe it's 14 Days or 30 Minutes.

As for Black? Samsung only announced it for the Galaxy Note 2.

I went with Pebble Blue when I bought the S3, strangely enough I don't know anyone with a White S3 all have PB so I can't say if there's Bleeding. I have both White & Grey Note 2 and don't notice anything.

Verizon in the US has it. No idea if it will be coming to a carrier up here.

Never will show. Red is on BELL. http://www.icarbons.com/ is your friend. I didn't like the blue, but than didn't mind it but hated the back. So I bought a skin to make it look totally different. The sides with a skin look like ***** tho so just pretend they don't exist. You can also get new backs any color you want on ebay. Get the blue and get a new back. It looks close enough to black and has a cool grain texture when the light hits it rather than the white which just looks plain plastic white.

I beleive there is also a data limit as well, like 30 minutes talk or 10 mb data or something like that.

In any case, I felt the same way about the white and blue and wanted a black, but the only option seems to be getting an international unlocked version, but I wanted one subsidized by my carrier as I wanted to extend my current plan (6GB data and voice for under $60). I gave up and went with a different model altogether. There was no SIII case I could find that totally masked the blue, and so you got weird bits of blue showing through like a balaclava. Didn't like it, and didn't want "sticker" skins or whatever all over it either.

I think this is what you're referring to?

I have a white S3 as well and the white light bleeding through actually doesn't bother me. I find that its a cool feature especially when the surrounding is pitch black. Oddly enough, all my friends who have upgraded to the S3 or Note 2. Went with titanium grey or the white.
