While Vodafone was not the first to offer the Galaxy S3 up for pre-order, it does appear to be the first to offer a choice between the 16gb and 32gb versions. They also offer the choice between 12, 18 and 24 month contracts.
We'll be updating our list of Galaxy S3 contracts shortly with the latest and greatest from Vodafone. Click here to pre-order with Vodafone and/or view their contracts.
UPDATE: Vodafone's 18 month contracts for the 16gb version have been added to our full list of Galaxy S3 contracts.
The S-Voice installation file for Samsung Galaxy SIII has been leaked and it apparently works on multiple Ice Cream Sandwich handsets. As it is one of the selling points that Samsung focused on, it gives us all a good chance to test it out and see if it's all that. I'll be installing it on my Samsung Galaxy S2 right now and will report back.
UPDATE: Well, that didn't last long. Samsung appears to have blocked it from working on non Galaxy SIII devices. However, some people on the XDA-Developers Forum claim that it works again by editing the build.prop file in the System folder. Hit the More link below for details.
Well, wouldn't you know it. Samsung's Galaxy SIII isn't even available yet, but Chainfire over on the XDA-Developers forum has already rooted it. Granted, there might be some minor software differences on the final Galaxy S3 but this is certainly a good start. Chainfire even commends Samsung on not being complete "douchebags" when it comes to unlocking their phones.

I have compiled a list of all the 18 month contracts currently available for the Samsung Galaxy S3. There are over eighty listed by number of minutes included. These Galaxy S3 contracts were found on the Carphone Warehouse, Phones4u, Mobiles.co.uk and O2. Click the 'More' link for the full list of contracts or click here for the Editor's Picks.
The new Galaxy S3 Contracts section is LIVE! So far it only covers the best available Galaxy S3 contracts for "small talkers". I will be updating it soon with the best contracts for "medium" and "big talkers". For now, these contracts are available from either the Carphone Warehouse, Mobiles.co.uk, and O2, as other sites are not currently taking pre-orders on 18 month contracts. I will not even look twice at a 24 month contract. Barf.
Don't let those "Total" prices freak you out, they cover the total cost of the Galaxy S3 handset & mobile services over the full 18 month period. These top 3 contracts have been chosen based on the Total and the services provided.
Update: The best Galaxy S3 contracts for "medium talkers" and "big talkers" are now online too. Plus, there is a long list of all the available 18 month pre-order contracts too.
