is it possible for us (rogers customers) to buy the phone from bell/virgin, unlock it, and use it with rogers service?
That's possible. You could also order it from the UK or somewhere else online if you find a better price. Many people on the XDA-Developers forum have done that.
technical aspect: i believe the phone is sold unlocked.
if rogers says that it will launch S2 later this year, why bother waiting? There will be better phones available in Q3/Q4
HI GUYS I GET AN E-MAIL FROM BELL CANADA TODAY JULY 21 2011 AND THEY TELL ME THAT SAMSUMG GALAXY S 2 IS GOING TO BE IN STORES ACROSS CANADA ON JULY 21 2011... SO GET READY IF YOU CAN...MY PLAN WITH ROGERS EXPIRE ON DECEMBER....... GOOD LOCK.
Sad news for all
I went today to 2 Rogers Store in downtown Montreal. Spoke with the managers in each store.
They confirm to me that Rogers WON'T get the Samsung Galaxy II. They choose to go with the Samsung Infuse 4G, HTC EVO 3D & LG Optimus 3D instead.
