Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket
Who Let This Happen?
and EVEN modify its devices?
Why Apple winning is good news for Android
2) Samsung will have to improve the quality of their devices, as it's no longer acceptable to make creaky cheap plastic knockoffs of the iPhone, slap on a iOS-mixed-with-typical-Samsung-bad-taste skin, and call it 'obvious.'
2) Android, which has already been veering away from iOS for a couple years now in terms of UI conventions, now has to remain fully committed to its own course (which I think it will be much stronger for.) Think about how much better 'Holo' apps looks now than the cruddy ones we saw back 2 years ago.
So I upgraded... and need some help?
What the hell is going on?

Data Connectivity Issues?
I got the phone about 1pm and thankfully decided to eat lunch in the same plaza, as I realized the data was not connecting, despite showing 4/5 bars and "4G LTE" I went back to the store and explained the issue. They played with the phone and admitted it was not working right. They swapped the SIM, still nothing. They swapped the phone, now spotty at best but still freezing, so they tried yet another SIM. While this is going on, a guy comes in to exchange his SGII for the Skyrocket and his initial use is showing the same issues.
I asked for a refund, and they are going to give it to me, but they asked me to keep it a few days and they'd waive any re-stocking fe...
Can't anybody get it right!!!!!
Using the Skyrocket as a GPS
Does anyone have physical expierence using the Skyrocket as a stand-alone GPS.?? I hope to go exploring some mountains, the Appalachian Trail, and other Rural areas where there is No Cell phone coverage from any carriers. Does this phone allow you to utilize it as a stand-alone GPS, when you are way out-of range of cell towers.??
DM initialization is not ready. Check network or SIM
Turning off 4G?
I just recently purchased this phone for my boyfriend and we have been experiencing random rebooting with it. Has anyone else had this issue? I tried to take it back to ATT and they gave me some problems which I don't want to get into because it's a complicated situation, so before things get even messier with trying to exchange the phone, I was wondering if anyone had any solutions to this problem?
LTE 700 / 1700
I know I posted in the AT&T forum about this, but this is relevant here as well D:
Can anyone verify if Speakerphone is half or full duplex?
I have read that it will default to HSPA+ if LTE is not available but does that mean it is always searching for LTE (and thus burning a little battery) or would I be able to turn it to only use GSM bands?
Likewise- I get a stronger signal in my house on edge for whatever reason and force my Nexus One to 2G. Does anyone with a GSII have any feedback on if you can toggle that? (I know at&t takes that function out of many phones)
Anyone know the range on market size? I live 7 miles out of DC and work 3 miles from the limit. Would LTE in DC reach me?
