The Samsung Galaxy S3 should be in stock at all Cell C franchise stores by this weekend (23–24 June 2012), according to a company spokesperson.
Cell C previously said that the device would be available from 15 June 2012 on a R399/month Business Chat standard contract and later on their new “Straight Up” contracts. The operator also said it would sell the device for a once-off price of R8,499.
However, some customers were disappointed to find that they were unable to get the device from Cell C last week, or during this week.
The operator has also warned that due to the current demand for the device, where they do have stock it is selling out fast.
“More stock has been ordered,” Cell C said.
Cell C’s Straight Up contract packages also recently appeared on its website.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is available on the 24-month Straight Up 100 contract for R499 per month which includes 100 minutes, 100 SMSes/MMSes, and 100MB of data.
Other smartphones available on Straight Up packages include the Lumia 800 for R399 on Straight Up 100, BlackBerry Bold 990 for R449 on Straight Up 200, and the Samsung Galaxy S2 for R249 on Straight Up 50.
