    ...iPhone 3G is where I'm from.
    Been wanting more camera and better OS response.Was all primed for the iPhone 4S but my ATT upgrade date kept getting pushed back (I'm a Baaad boy Abbott).
    So I switched to TMo,3phones for the price of 2 + a penny,added 2 lines for sis & bro,barely 2X the cost of my solo ATT!
    A little razzled with the Android learning curve but I am totally digging the hardware.Just hope my ol'lady sis can get with it.
    Ya'll gonna have to clue me in on this 'root' business,and this froyo talk ???
    And whats up with not being able to DL apps to the Mac and USB to the phone (besides the evil plan to have me use up my airtime on goofin around)?
    To the ether!

    Just switched from a BlackBerry Torch 9800. I don't dislike BB, but getting the S2 made sense because I've got two Android Tablets (an original Samsung Galaxy Tab 7 and an Asus Transformer TF101). The fact that it's come down in price a bit in anticipation of the S3 also helped!

    I've owned the S2 since Saturday and I can't believe how fast it is compared to my BB Torch!. Not really surprised to see that so many people have switched from BBs and iPhones. Really really love my S2 (and I thought I was going to be a die hard CrackBerry for the rest of my life!)

    BlackBerry Bold 9700 to Galaxy S II.

    Switched over last month. Wow larger and brighter (gasp) but awful awful battery life. Still getting accustomed to the Android UI ... i'm missing the BB KB.

    I'm wondering if to jump in though. My local carrier just announced some VERY low prices for the GSII probably in preparation for the higher priced GSIII and while I was very stern on going Nexus only, the price is very hard to disagree with. I actually feel the need for some guidance. If I want the features of JB [I could probably suffer the skin], but we all know Samsung gives trouble. Who says we're REALLY going to get a JB upgrade? Better than the BlackBerry I'm currently using but.. should I?

    I think it ultimately comes down to how important JB is to you. I can't find much to say that we'll definitely get it. I love my phone - even though the S2 has been out for a year I still think it's a great device-and JB isn't that important to me. If it is a deal breaker for you, then perhaps wait and see if we get more JB news. Or stick with your original plan.

    Oh and I came from a BB too.

    I also upgraded from a Torch 9800, it was an atrocious device in my opinion.
