incorrect info

The i777 does not have a 4.52 inch screen, the T989 does, but not the i777, which is the GSII that is being refered to in this article.

Battery life on this compared to the Infuse....

well I did the comparison between this and the Infuse.... Although more powerful, the Galaxy S II has only a 3 hour battery life on talk compared to the 8 of the infuse? I mean I know that is talk time but imagine running other apps and what not on this... it would kill the battery even quicker....Any thoughts on this or concerns that the battery life ( as quoted on here ) make this the biggest reason to stay away from this phone?

2G/3G/4G toggle?

Does anyone know if Samsung and/or at&t will allow you to actively chose which bands you want to use on this?
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?

Hey Eric

Would you say it would be worth the extra $50 plus a $35 restock fee to go from the current GSII to the Skyrocket?

#1. Notification of missed calls or messages. Just go into setting & set sound notifications to your desire & loudness.
#2. Messages n call log.
U might have downloaded AT&T mesages from market, which combines all n one place. I tried & did not like. Go back to market & delete AT&T messages. Use standard messaging or maybe download Go SMS Pro, free.
#3 Having to delete email one @ a time.
Actually its not one @ a time. U do have to select the emails u want to delete. Then tap delete & shazam, the ones u cked are all gone. Personally I like this much better, seems like their's always 1 or 2 u want to keep for a while. Anyway, study, think & try out or ask before condeeming a feature of a product before u get all the facts & viewpoints, so...

Why the two different screen sizes?

Does anybody know why the AT&T version of this phone comes with a 4.27" screen vs. the T-Mobile and Sprint versions which measure 4.52"?

So whats the advantages of the AT&T version? It really frusterates me that they are using a inferior processor and a smaller screen. Guess I'll be patient and wait to see what the Holiday will consist of.
