    I just browsed boost's website and saw that they appear to have yanked the page promoting the SGS2. Sign of things to come (or not to come, rather)?

    With the hearing for S2 ban scheduled for Dec 06, Boost is prolly just playing it safe.

    Oh okay sweet -- I didn't realize that they were going to have another hearing before any potential injunction would come down. Thanks!

    That is quite lame, considering Walmart just started selling this as a T-Mobile prepaid phone for $300.

    Boost is betting on the "gotta have it" crowd. If past performance is an indicator then within 3 months the phone will drop in price to a more reasonable offering. Look at the Design. Already got offers and discounts going for it.

    Yeah, there is definitely a price to be paid for "early adopters".

    Just like all the carriers do. I had to laugh at the people camping out for iphone5.

    I finally picked my S2 up when Amazon stocked it. FS and no tax gave me the push I needed.

    I would expect a price drop around Christmas, maybe Black Friday. 3 months seems the norm for the first reductions.

    Personally I hated paying an extra $70 over other prepaid but I love this phone. The downside is I cannot upgrade again for at least 18 months as I see having a phone averaged $20 a month to make it 'worth the price.'

    I was skeptical about purchasing mine but I finally said screw it and got it. I I love it! My first Android was the galaxy s3 but I returned it because sprint kept playing around with the price I'd get every month. I I miss it but this one isn't half bad.

    hadn't thought about that little savings via Amazon

    sometimes that's just what you have to do.
