And although I would have to use it with Straighttalk for $45/mo, at least I will get better HSPA+ speed/coverage and battery life than your WiMax will. Kind of sucks b/c I was going to hit $40 in 2mos on Boost. I'll wait a little longer, maybe until the end of the year.
Anyone notice that they are releasing the phone on Sep 6th, and on the Boost Website the 15% off expires on 8/28? That really sucks Booost!!!
I actually did that and I am beyond happy.
ie bought the galaxy nexus(gsm) and went to straight talk and wow I didn't realize how incredibly slow, and I do mean SLOW boost data was until I switched.....BIG difference.
Not to mention no carrier bloatware.
The s2 is a nice phone indeed,but it is nothing compared to mine, and its even less appealing when you factor in boosts slow and often spotty service.
Good luck to those of you who but it and choose to stick with boost.
