    Check out this tutorial video posted by Samsung Canada. Rogers Canada just released an LTE version of the S II this week, but look at the carrier names on the homescreen. ATT/Rogers. Is this the confrimation we are looking for the an LTE phone is on its way to the US very soon?? I m still hearing we should know something Nov 6th:

    Why would they announce something like this on a Sunday?

    Makes no difference for me. I won't see LTE for maybe at least another year. I think my area still needs to get faster fake 4g now. My wifi is over three times faster, and I have the basic cable internet plan. Anyway, the current speed is sufficient enough for my needs.

    The Samsung Focus and Flash are hitting AT&T on the 6th, so it is not out of the realm of possibilities. But the AT&T stores here in Houston aren't selling the Galaxy S II, you can only find it at BestBuy. They are not even advertising it. They have been told they should know something about the LTE phone in the 6th. This is from multiple reps at multiple Houston locations.

    Good info. Although DFW is an LTE market, they did launch the SGSII here. I picked one up on launch day, October 2. The phone was fine but I started hearing these rumors and the dates were all after the 30 days return policy.

    I decided to return the SGSII and wait to see what plays out. I know a lot of people with an SGSII in DFW will be pissed if they launch the LTE version or a good LTE phone after the return period for the SGSII.

    Raycpe, thanks for all your info on this topic!

    They don't sell it nor the Atrix II at any ATT in Modesto. One authorized retailer claimed it was due to an LTE version coming later this year. I know Verizon just made this city an LTE zone. I'm hoping to pick one up soon, so hopefully we get the details.

    No Problem, I am just like you guys. I don't want to buy the S II if an LTE version is coming out.

    Isn't that like kicking current Galaxy S2 At&t owners in the teeth?

    Only if you're in an LTE market. And technology always changes. Kind of the risk you take getting a phone.

    What I want to know is if Best Buy will carry it outside of LTE markets.

    At least they announced it before the 30 day mark of the sgsII launch. lf you want lte, return the sgsII ASAP. Most people will not care or do not know the difference. Enough rumors going in lte markets where anyone paying any attention should be clued in.

    Of course that is an assumption on my part...

    I think this will confuse a lot of costumers to have the same phone in two different models at the stores.

    I personally wouldn't get AT&T though.

    Maybe they will drop the price of the original SGS II with the release of the Skyrocket. I live nowhere near an LTE market.

    The skyrocket is 249.99! Can't wait to see battery life on this bad boy! I know it should be better than verizon lte due to no need for a separate lte radio !?

    The press release said you can keep your unlimited smartphone plan if you currently have it!

    Edit: Actually, it says exisiting customers do not need to switch their current plans. I am sure they will clarify that point.

    Does anyone know if I can return this phone if I bought the GSII Oct 2nd? I mean that's like right at 30days or yesterday or what I don't know how AT&T works. I feel like I've been had if they released this exactly 30days after their first GSII

    The biggest thing I see here with the AT&T LTE is the price points on the 2 phones they announced. The Samsung is $249 and HTC is $199, $50 and $100 lower then Verizon's LTE phones. This may have to do with the AT&T market being really small right now (five cities). Will be interesting to see the prices on both a year from now.

    If you want an option to get the lte version I would take it back ASAP!

    Today is 30 days!
