Samsung Galaxy S2

I spoke with a Rogers rep and he said that they will not be getting the S2 yet. He said probably not until earliest September, but more likely even later in the year.

 

Too bad...its an amazing phone, but I've been saving my upgrade for months and months for the S2 only to be disappointed that I have to wait for everyone else to get it first. Smiley Sad

This is true. If you guys read the post I & others have said this before. Future shop / best buy & Wireless wave are ONLY new activations prices. You are not going to get those prices as a upgrade.

No it will just close every application that is on. If you are using the music player or internet it will just shut them down so they will not be open.

I have a TELUS S2X, I have put in my iPhone 4 microsim with a sim adapter. All works, but I am on 3G network still. Shouldn't I be able to access 4G (HSDPA+)?

Battery life update:

10th day:
- Charged till 11:30pm last night (then unplugged it)
- On 4G all the time
- Played Scrabble online with my friend (on 4G, not wifi) for 15mins
- Went to bed at 11:45pm
- Woke up for work at 7:30am, battery says 100% still?!?
- Did a power off/Power on, checked meter again, battery down to 20%

So, all in all I am roughly looking at minimum 9-9.5hrs with light usage.

I have a charger at home, charger in my car, and charger at work (a la blackberry days)

I feel that car charger and if you charge it to your laptop/pc just trickles juice whereas if you plug it into the wall it charges pretty quickly.

Battery saver I always have on:
- brightness down to minimum
- dark wallpaper
- Fixed, static wallpaper
- GPRS off
- wifi off (only use it if Im at home and plugged to the wall)

- Android Booster app

Tonight I will try switching to 3G, and uninstalling Android Booster (since I know task killing kills the battery as well) and see how far it'll go.

Does anyone know who can pick up a reserved phone? The name on the account is that of my parents but I have authorization to make changes on the account (I have highest possible authorization, rank 1 or whatever it is). Is that sufficient to be able to pick up the phone from a store?

 

Thanks for any help.

The account holder has to show up. Your parents need to show their I.D in order to get the phone. If your parents can not go then you can not get the phone. It does not matter if you a second highest in the account and you are able to make changes but like the rules says you need the account holder their.

this it my 5th day with s2 lte. let me tell you how my battery is doing.

i did around 4 full charge cycles so far. (0% to 100%)

Last night I charged my phone to 100%, but this morning it had around 90%.(7:30am)

And until now (11:40 am) I did following activities with the phone.

 

watched video on my way to work for 20min (not streamed videos)

played mp3s for 10min

Sent and received around 100 msgs (4g)

Used facebook app for around 5min.

Checked email

Did not shut down any apps that I turned on (8 apps so far)

My screen brightness is set automatically

 

And now (11:40am) my battery is at 40%. I’m hoping battery life will get better after few more full battery cycle.

Nice battery life.. lol. To be honest the Battery life will not get better after a few more full battery cycle charges. It stays the same as before.

Try installing Juice Defender Ultimate. That will shut down the 4G & it will shut down any wireless stuff on the phone when its on standby.

Not sure if this has been posted already, but Costco has a promotion on where you can get the phone for $179.99 (same as at Rogers) but you get a $125 Costco giftcard.

Yes this was posted before as well. That promotion is ONLY for NEW ACTIVATIONS. You CAN NOT use that promotion to do hardware upgrades. Called every Costco in Ontario & they all told me that ( i spoke to the Store Managers as well.)

I am currently month to month. Does singing a new 3 year agreement count as a new activation? I know that hardware upgrades are separate.

You'd have to sign a brand new contract with a brand new number.

Aynone know where I can get a spare battery for this phone?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

That should work because that is tech called a new activation since your contract ended & you are just using month to month service. I would call up & ask about it.

I'm guessin I would call Costco about that and not Rogers?

You can call both but i would suggest you call Rogers before you call Costco just to make sure.

Well, for those of you still on the fence, Bell and Virgin just announced that they are going to be the first to offer the Galaxy Nexus.
