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

Hello all,

 

 Did anyone in Calgary get their phone? I have called a few rogers stores and they told me they don't think we will get them anytime soon, as there is not LTE network here. I was on the reserve list at around 900ish and it says in progress. Anyone think I will get my phone soon?

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

Hi! Although this doesn't help me much, Rogers happened to ship my phone to Calgary (I'm in Ottawa) by mistake, and it was apart of a shipment of 5 headed there, which arrived on saturday. So maybe yours could be in that batch?

EDIT: Actually, I was able to check the status of the others, and they were all delivered to Ottawa. Looks like my phone was the only one to end up in Calgary for whatever reason.

Well... I picked up the HTC Raider today.  I went back and forth on this for a couple of days but in the end HTC's responsiveness carried the day. As I've said before, I'm pretty much stuck with Rogers.  Sure, I could buy my way out of 5 contracts thus rewarding them for ticking me off or I could stick with the phones I have for the duration thus punishing myself and my other users.  Not much of a choice is it?  Samsung hasn't been any more forthcoming with information than Rogers has.  Neither comapny gives a dam(n) so I went with HTC who have always been courteous and responsive.  When my Nexus One needed service they were a pleasure to deal with.  It's amazing the difference in attitude.

Battery Report:

 

Up time is at 32hr 19min after a full drain and charge.  Battery is currently at 9%.

 

Over the course of the past day and a bit I visited Facebook and Twitter, did some browsing on the internet, watched a couple videos on youtube, played some Angry Birds, checked hockey and football scores on the Score Mobile, downloaded some wallpapers and ringtones, read and sent work and personal emails, made a couple calls, sent out some texts.. pretty much everything you would use a superphone for.

 

I'm not running any 3rd party battery apps nor using the battery saver built into the phone.  

 

So far the battery life is killing my old iPhone.  Loving every minute of this phone!

Try these

Samsung phones often need the usb drivers on the pc to detect the phone. You can also download and install Kies to connect/save and synch.

Thanks silver, will give it a try. Also this is my first time using "kies" to transfer files between my pc. I was just used to plug and play  from my blackberry, just kinda weird getting us to.

there are apps in the market that can help you. one I use is ringdroid, you can select which part of a song you want as your ringer and it should place it in the appropriate spot so that you can see it in your ringer list.

Mini comparrison SGS2 vs HTC Raider (bell version)

 

have been playing with both devices here are some initial thoughts

 

I didn't know the bell version was dual channel hspa+ (42mbps instead of 21 on rogers)

screen looks great on both like the resolution on the raider a bit more as it fits more on the screen. Tried changing the screen density on the sgs but then it messes up touchwiz and the dialer as they don't end up supporting it.

 

sense has come a long way still not a fan of how tied in it is but much more useable now.  Touchwiz is also speedy just don't like the icons, but again easier to get rid of. 

 

Camera wise (default settings) the htc was showing more colours but i believe its just a bit oversaturated. the camera app on the raider is awesome theres a definite win there. both have panoramic views but the raider also has a native HDR mode which also took care of the over saturated view.  the front camera looks better on the sgs. 

 

I like the weight and the build of the raider. the sgs2 feels a lot better than the first one (one reason why I never bought it). taking off the battery cover is a lot easier on the raider (not a huge deal but still is noticeable) voice quality on both seem fine I recommend turning down the volume on the sgs2 when on speaker phone, found it to be too loud.

 

Haven't been on LTE yet will do tonight. 

 

Any questions, let me know as I have both at my desk.

 

one side note, after using my phone for a while, using an iphone touch is so difficult due to the screen size.  apple has to go to at least 4" for their next device.

my phone was shipped to other city too. i been calling rogers last night, but no one had single clue what as going on.

it seems like 40 bucks i paid has been credited back to me.

after all, no point reserving a phone and i need to start calling in stores to see if they have any.

rogers can't do single job correctly.

Re: Samsung Galaxy S2

My mom just picked up one from T-Booth yesterday from  Fairview Mall in Kitchener. I don't think they were running low on inventory so I would go and check them out there. I think they also have more than one store around the KW area - I think in Conestoga mall in waterloo - so call around and check! good luck!

The website is showing this as $179 this morning..... wondering if this is a glitch or if it's already dropping in price?
