I like having an actual keyboard, I have enjoyed my G2, however the data signal seems to have gotten worse, my area seems to have spotty service and every since they supposedly wend 4G it got slower. One annoying thing about my G2 is every few days it will develop a problem where while texting it will start to throw me all over the phone with certain button presses until I reboot. Another problem is when I get too many messages built up it will get stuck on sending until a reboot. I was thinking maybe a more powerful phone with new technology may improve my signal and have better data performance. I am not sure if I want a phone that large as I always use a belt holster for work but It would be nice for other things. Anyone tryed the Galaxy note II?
