    $261?!

    What all did you get with it...I got mine from BestBuy for $209. (5% sales tax).

    And I was the first GS2 they sold. First person asking about it too . Then when I did, somebody else came up behind me and got another one.

    Yeah AT&T told me today that their stores here won't be carrying it. WTF!? I was just looking for a case haha. I got it at best buy at 10am when they opened, but I really wish I knew of a retail location that has cases for it.

    where is a good location to buy cases online, i didn't intend on buying one until i saw how fragile it feels in my hands

    i prefer amazon but anything else? i want a case that doesnt add any bulkyness, this phone is longer than i thought :< kinda wish i waited for the iphone 5 but well see...i am liking the android OS

    Just got mine at Best Buy...and they priced matched Amazon so it was $150 + tax!

    They said they only had one extra phone after all the pre-orders were filled.

    i called my local att store on friday to ask if they can hold me one and they did, i was not eligible for an upgrade so i was expecting to pay 599. They had issues getting the price and i ended up paying 549.99 plus tax, but they charged me 199.99 for the phone and gave me the difference in accessories, i got a jawbone speaker thing, a blue tooth headst (jawbone) 16gb micro sd card, car charger, and car blue tooth handfree, i made out like an EFFING bandit, got all that stuff for LESS than retail of the phone!!!!! im super excited, just need to root this thing!!

    needless to say i dont need or want any of the stuff i got or free, but im sure someone in my family could, or ill go to another ATT and return all the stuff and would have gotten my phone for 199 without upgrade!

    Nice, my local BB would not price match. Plus, they had none on display, only boxed. And would not power one up so I could look at, etc. Plus the girl was basically and *****.

    Anyway went across the street to ATT had one in 20 minutes, and kept my unlimited data and corp discount. Paid $200 instead of $150 but worth it I think for the reasons above plus in hand now

    My Best Buy price matched Wal-Mart. In and out in a short period of time. No accessories, though, which is a FAIL.

    Best Buy is the largest consumer electronics retailer in the world. As the winter season approaches, Best Buy plans to boost its online presence. The technology company also plans to reduce short-term hiring by half. Those out of work and dreaming about some short-term relief will have to look elsewhere. Meanwhile, the merchant is spending unheard of quantity on its lobbying efforts. Best Buy spends more and hires fewer as the holiday season approaches. This is the company's way of combating its revenue losses.

    Hahaha I know! I'm always getting screwed one way or another by stores so it was nice to actually have something good happen for once.
