Regardless of whether it is 3G/4G, I think the addition of the S2 would be great. Not as great as the S3, mind you, but still great.

And hardware wise? Except for the similar screen resolution, there's no contest between the S2 & the MT- S2 FTW!!!

I will believe it when it's announced.

They do have it available in other countries though...but of course VM in other countries isn't owned by Sprint.

They didn't say what the price is going to be, it was just an online chat I had with customer service because I really want the S2 but I don't want to switch my plan to Boost Mobile in order to get it I wanna stay on Virgin. Anyway they confirmed its coming in November and will be on 4G WIMAX which is exciting news being that the S2 is the most sophisticated phone out for prepaid plan service. Be on the lookout for an official announcement coming out in the next few weeks head. I'm getting tired of my Triumph, its time for an upgrade

That's about the same as the guy working the cell phone department at Wal-Mart telling you they are getting the S2. Maybe they will, but that guy doesn't know anything you don't.

Yes, well said. There have been stories of virgin mobile customer service confirming gingerbread updates. I don't think they know much about stuff like that but they'll tell you what you want to hear. When I see something more official from VM i'll believe it. though, It's always good to be optimistic I suppose.

Also agreed. I need to know from a valid source before I believe it. VM employees could make this up for all I know.

Not to troll, but in my opinion the Evo 3D is better anyway and we already have that.

Compared to the Galaxy SII it has:
A faster processor
Higher Res screen
3D
4G
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich

Now if the Galaxy S III came to Virgin, that would be another story lol.

yeah and the screen size difference is almost insignificant. like how the EVO was 0.2 inches bigger than the triumphs screen but is still smaller width-wise

no.

the galaxy Reverb has a 4 inch 480x800 screen, a snapdragon S2 MSM8655 (same as triumph)


the Galaxy Reverb is basically a triumph.... same cpu, SLIGHTLY more ram but not enough to matter. its got android 4 but with that touchwiz crap. not pure android.


if you already got a triumph its not much different than the reverb. unless you REALLY love samsungs name, but considering its just a mid range phone I'm willing to be they licensed a standard mid range handset and just threw the samsung logo on it, like motorola did with the triumph.

thats why we are seeing sooo many mid range phones come out running the s2 snapdragon from the triumph, all with the same size screens and ram and just running different software.


*EDIT*

on second thought. a 1.4GHz single core phone was a SUPER GREAT phone at one time, there was a time where all those specs were at the high end of the market.

just becuase dual core phones exist now doesnt make these ones BAD.

if you want a smartphone these will do VERY well. i dont think they will be AS future proofed as dual cores but there not gunna let you down in day to day use.

Would be cool if they gave us the current Galaxy Nexus as our first LTE phone when the new Nexus' gets released. I'd get it.

If I'm not mistaken, those customer service reps are the same company contracted by Sprint to answer customer service calls. They don't actually work at VM/Sprint. Take what they tell you with a grain of salt, and believe what you read from the official press releases from either Sprint or Virgin Mobile USA.

If I'm not mistaken, call centers by Sprint are run by Alorica.

People in those call centers are designed to "always tell the customer what they want to hear."

From my experience working in one (I didn't last long, I always told the customer the truth,) they will tell lies, just so you keep your plan/contract/buying their items.

If the S2 does come, cool! But I'm happy with my Evo 3D.

They barely speak English. You sure their call center is located in the US? I was with VM USA for years and seldom was able to understand what they were trying to say over the phone. I think only once did I get someone who I understood completely.

There are a few locations. They have some in the DR, Texas, and other places.

Correction...I know this is not a reliable source but I literally just got off the phone with customer service and asked again if the galaxy s2 is coming to vm and he corrected me by saying "it's not the s2 that's coming, its the Samsung Galaxy S3 that's coming on November 30th just in time for the holidays" He also said the announcement will be on their website within a week or two. If this is true then OMG!!!

That would be awesome, if it's true. But, it will probably cost $500-600 or more.

I've said it before in other threads, and I'll say it again.

If the S2 had 3D I would buy it in a heartbeat. I just really enjoy the 3D of the evo v.

It is. Look at the Google Search bar. Thais the one from gingerbread. ICS has a clear bar and JB is kinda gray. Unless they're giving us an SII running Gingerbread? I don't think so.

I am just saying that I have not seen any official, or even credible, source to confirm this. I do see that it is available overseas, but their VM is different than ours. Even VM in Canada is different.
When I see something credible, I will take it back. Until then....

I find this very interesting because whenever I ask a VM rep while on their website about upcoming phones they're VERY STRICT about giving any information away. I haven't seen anything on the web about them releasing the S2 on their network but if they are, I'll probably be getting it depending on price.

I got an email today from Sprint offering the S2 for free with a new account. I'm guessing that now, even though I've seen nor heard any official/credible resource that it's coming to VM, this tells me that it is possible. :sly:

This would be perfect. I am seriously tired of the problems I'm having with my Evo V...I'm finally looking into S-off and everything else even though I've been putting it off. The only thing is...I really like the 3D and Sense. Also, if VM does get this...I like the white version better, so in that case I might as well just switch to Boost, since they have the shrinking payments too. The only reason I went back to VM was because there was a very noticeable difference in my 3G speed when I went to Boost. I am wondering though if this was because of the phone model I had (LG Marquee). I'm going to try to find a Boost store that has a working model of the S2 and see what the 3G speed is like.

Would it be crazy not to sell the Evo if I do that, just to keep it for the 3D? It's too bad that it doesn't come out in more phones...Even though many people tagged it as gimmicky, I like it a lot.

Getting S-off is really easy. The instructions are what make it sound hard, but if you watch a video of someone doing the process you will be surprised at how simple it is. I'm S-off atm and running Harmonia with everything working.

Yeah I've been reading over all of the instructions, and I may attempt it later this week. I just want to make sure I understand everything first, and have everything backed up, and then when I have some time I can spend working on it I will try it.

Can anyone verify that this is going to happen? Looking into getting a new phone, and this would be awesome! I'm hoping it will be the version that Boost Mobile has (Epic 4g Touch) because I really like the design.

The s2 is outdated, and why would boost and vm have the same phone? I think VM is prepping for something better than the s2

Really? It looks good enough for me. I just want a smartphone with a good camera and a decent size screen. I'm inferring that you think they will get the S3, but it seems to early for that. I understand what you mean though, having the same phone on both Boost and Virgin wouldnt work because Virgin could offer a much cheaper contract. Doesn't hurt to dream though....

I don't actually have an Android device at the moment. I own a Sanyo Incognito on Boost (predecessor to the Innuendo) that is "technically" a 3G phone, but I have it on the Pay-as-you-go plan so I don't use any of the internet or messaging features it is capable of.

I'm looking to get a phone that will be able to have some of the features I don't have right now. The reason I really want a good camera is because I've tried to take pictures with my Incognito and the quality is really bad. I will most likely be keeping this phone for a while, so I don't want to buy a cheap phone and regret it.
