    Arrow jumping ship

    Im just going to get the galaxy sII skyrocket.
    Why?
    Much better camera
    Going to get ICS anyways
    Great battery
    LTE
    Gorilla glass
    Great performance
    its released
    super amoled+
    better front facing camera

    I mean, I'll get it if it arrives before january, but honestly by the time ATT will get it, its probably going to be completely antiquated.

    Not that I disagree with your decision but the Galaxy Nexus released on AT&T before January 2012? Highly unlikely. They might announce at CES but it will be months. Oh and add 3 months to whatever they say about getting ICS to the SR. Are those captivate owners still waiting on 2.3? Hate to be so cynical but I am been down this road with Samsung before.

    With the galaxy nexus part thats what Im saying... its gonna be outdated by the time ATT gets it

    and google did say "early next year" and the software is pretty similar to the gsII so i dont think it would be that much of a delay

    I like my SR as is, so when ICS comes it will be great! If the GNex had the 32GB GSM model I might jump on it, not paying off contract for 16GB. Also do not know if I could give up LTE at this point.

    i'm on ATT. i agree with this, but i also believe it won't be a $300 phone at that point since there will be superior phones either present or right behind it if this even gets introduced to ATT's lineup w/in the next 6 months.

    i'm not a fan of ATT so much, but i really really distrust VZW. i had a billing problem with them in the 90's and i've got some serious cold feet about resigning a contract with them.

    at this point, i am inclined to wait and see. meanwhile, me and my 3GS iphone are still kinda friends... but just barely.

    After having the phone for a week, can't imagine having any other phone. Even messing with the other phones coming out now with att, this phone is simply stunning.

    It would be great if AT&T had a LTE Nexus all fired up ready to go. But am with ya, couldn't go back to use something w/o LTE.

    Tell me about it >.>....... I watched the hands on video from techno buffalo and i had a crisis right off the bat. I'm willing to wait for it unless some so amazing came out that causes me to have a crisis the likes that has never been seen ever before. Besides im up for a new phone in February and i cant take my self to go ios even if the iphone 5 were to unlikely be released. I tried ics on a nexus s and i like it but the s reminds of something that brought me joy from changing from BB to android. My infuse and thats what makes me sad that basically at&t and samsung are saying sorry our support will be well none existant because you bought the wrong phone.

    Not to mention when and if it is updated and will have touchwiz and bloat. There's nothing like stock vanilla android
