For those who ordered a shiny new flagship Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone from regional carrier US Cellular we have some excellent news this morning. US Cellular has just confirmed their 4G LTE equipped version of the phone is shipping starting today for folks who pre-ordered, and it will arrive in stores at the end of the week.

US Cellular opened up pre-orders back on June 12th and have been having pretty good sales considering it’s their best smartphone to date, and in their lineup. Although the same could be said for every carrier at the moment. It looks like those who ordered early will be getting their phones delivered starting tomorrow as USCC just tweeted all pre-orders have started shipping this morning.

The Galaxy S III from US Cellular is $199 for the 16GB model, and $249 for the 32GB flavor just like most carriers, although those prices are after $100 mail-in-rebates sadly. You’ll be able to order the phone online starting tomorrow, and head to your nearest local store on Friday the 13th to pick one up in-store. Check out all of our coverage and reviews of the other identical models below, then get ready to enjoy the best smartphone around.
