AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S II is now official-official for October 2nd at $199.99 on-contract
In fact, AT&T tweeted the good news saying that they’ll start selling the long awaited smartphone starting on October 2nd for the customary 2-year on-contract price of $199.99. With the money you’ll be forking over, you’ll essentially be getting the most faithful of the three US variants of the original Samsung Galaxy S II model overseas. Rather than moving up in size like the versions for Sprint and T-Mobile, AT&T’s beauty is instead sticking with a 4.3” Super AMOLED Plus display.
hands-on look at the handset if you really want to see what you’re getting yourself into with this one.

I think they should have picked it up period. Hate them for passing this up.

They passed on it because they will be getting a similar phone from samsung but better in about a month or two.

It's amazing that almost half a year after its global launch, the SGS2 is still the best phone around. Well done Samsung!
It's equally amazing that we only have to wait less than half a year to get hands on such a wonderful phone. Well done AT&T!!

great news! now ill have to decide between GS2 or HTC holiday-both great phones! all-right ATT!
13. Forsaken77 (Posts: 552; Member since: 09 Jun 2011)
My dilema exactly. I'm going with the GS2 because it has a smaller screen than the Holiday. I prefer a 4" screen honestly, the Holiday is too big for my taste, 4.52". Secondly, HTC's LTE phones are tremendously bad on battery life. My friend has the Thunderbolt and has to charge it mid-day and it's practically dead at night again. Plus there's no release day for the Holiday yet, though I would assume around the "holidays" ;)

No thanks, if I wanted a subpar phone, I'd just get any other Androne phone. Why bother when the iPhone 5 will be out soon? lol, suckers.

He's just some loser living with his parents who has nothing better to do then to troll every single android article. I honestly feel sorry for him.

I'll agree with the loser part, but honestly, I am sure you don't feel sorry for the guy... way to much effort wasted on that...

You'll be disappointed if it's only the iPhone 4S that comes out this year.

Seriously, I am getting my hands on this phone as soon as possible! Best phone on At&t so far.
10. rcy189 (Posts: 26; Member since: 24 Jun 2011)
So tempted to end my contract early just to get this phone.
18. Kjayhawk (Posts: 291; Member since: 07 Oct 2010)
I did lol. I was on verizon and left for Sprint. I LOVE THE PHONE!!! But sprints service inside buildings sucks, outside though i found it to be better on sprint, plus i frequently travel to syracuse, so being able to try 4g is cool and its fast. But I find myself roaming when i am in my barrack since they don't charge for roaming I'm fine but they do limit it and will knock you off if you go to far over!!
I'm trying it out for 14 days, if I don't like it I get my money refunded, then I might go to AT&T for the SGS II or Verizon and just wait for the iPhone...

If you're talking about switching to AT&T or Sprint from AT&T or Sprint...Just call their retentions team after Oct. 2nd (for AT&T) and they usually can hook you up w/an early upgrade as long as it's no earlier than 6 months since you upgraded last.
23. idanian (unregistered)
with AT&T, they won'd let you early upgrade if you have an iphone unless you want to pay an extra $250, just fyi...
34. Meedlies (Posts: 8; Member since: 06 Sep 2011)
I work at an authorized retailer and we do early upgrades for an extra $75 while COR stores charge an extra 200-250. Shop around in your area for an authorized dealer. A lot of times we can do things that corporate stores can't. Plus authorized dealers are usually locally owned and operated so you are keeping your buisiness local which helps everyone.

We finally get the same phone that third world countries have had for six months! Yay!

heh. Sad but true.

If you're a T-mobile customer and can't wait ( and if your contract is up) you should probably get this one. EXYNOS!!!!

35. BenCjamin (Posts: 80; Member since: 13 May 2011)
Uh hello! to prevent banning from the US!! Apple would have a heyday if they brought the SGSII out with a center button.
