    I didn't see any posts on this, so I thought I shared it with all here.

    Pocketnow, who originally stumbled upon the possible Galaxy S II carrier branding, have found more evidence of such. It seems the phone will hit AT&T (Attain), Verizon (Function), and Sprint (Within). All three phones will be identically according to the article.

    it sucks that Sprint will probably delay this on purpose to give the EVO 3D enough time to make some money without competition.

    Interesting. If this is true and it ends up being 4G on Verizon, then this will most definitely be my next phone.

    Kickstand? Hm. Don't know how credible that is...

    Attain, Function and Within: Is it just me or are those the suckiest names for a phone ever? I hope they come up with some cooler names before the phone is released in the US.

    As someone else pointed out...kickstand? They probably copy and pasted the description from either the Thunderbolt or Evo.

    Wish vzw would get this sometime before oct/nov but i seriously doubt it. Vzw needs a competitor very soon, too many 2010 spec phones being released

    They can call them whatever they want as long as Sprint gets their version here. I also hope they do not change the appearance of the phone too much from the international version.

    Well, if the GSII on Verizon is only 3G (which given the current form factor, it'd have to be), then I would expect it way before then (at least that's what I'm hoping). I'd only see a Q4 release if they try and put an LTE radio in it.

    But they have to change the name. I'm not owning an Attain.

    LOL!

    But "Attain?" Seriously?

    Hopefully the US marketing gurus will pick a better name for it, such as "Goop" or "Ankle."

    Unfortunitly I think Dolfan to be right, I really wish there was a LTE radio, but they would have to design a brand new one. Even if it comes out 3g I will get it, as long as unlimited data is around.

    They redesigned the Galaxy S1 to have a WiMAX radio. Why wouldn't they change the GS2 to have an LTE radio?

    It's beleived that this next round of Galaxy S's will not have a change in form factor. The same handset across all carriers.

    You are probably right but each phone caters to a specific like, I am sure that both will sell very well.

    agreed, i think in this case it will be a matter of the screen and 3d capability. some people want one thing, others don't want it.

    i'm going to wait for this phone!
