Ok, since there aren't any posts about this phone here yet, I'll start one.. I called and confirmed, the Galaxy S II known as the Hercules at TM, will be available on Oct. 12th, 2011. I just hope there are no issues like the G2x had because they were Mass-Produced. I am currently using a BB 9700 without the Data Plan. I most likely will be using the $10/mo Data plan for starters..
