    They did have the commercials. Seen it once on tv and again on youtube. From what I heard the Infuse page changed the day before or on launch. I'm not surprised. I am surprised on how a 3GS can sell for so much used let alone a 4. If I sold mine I could get the SGSII for free. It's crazy with these iPhones. I'm telling you right now that iPhone 4s or 5 will not beat the SGSII in the horsepower department. It's going to be an A5 clocked at 1gz maybe 1.5, 8mp clicker and finally 1gb of ram. The software is going the route of Android with its notification bar and Wifi sync. The folks will go gaga over it and it will sell millions. So there get what you like and have fun with it. But that thing is not going to be cutting edge. Not anymore. They had their time. It's over. Again the stats I posted are my best guess, it's an educated one, but a guess non the less.

    I'll be the first person to admit... Apple makes some pretty gorgeous looking products. I just recently sold my iMac, iPad, iPod touch and soon to be iPhone 4. My problem with Apple is I HATE being told what's best for me. Steve Jobs openly said he thought these 4"+ screens were massive. To who exactly? I'm 6'3 buddy, 3.5" is too small for me. iOS is beautifully smooth, but it's looked the same for over 4 years now.

    Again, Apple has built a culture with their stuff and I respect the hell out of it. But for the amount of money they make you'd think they'd be ahead of the curve when it comes to giving their customers top of the line hardware on top of their killer software.

    Same went for my iMac. I spent almost two and a half thousand dollars for that computer. Was is beyond gorgeous? Yes! Was it obsolete in 6 months? You betcha. And with their integrated GPU's there wasn't a chance in hell to upgrade.

    I'm totally derailed here but I guess it boils down to why I'm so excited to have this GS II: I'm ready for change, I get bored easily. This phone is beautiful and were all going to enjoy the hell out of it.

    I'm just glad to get this work week out of the way. Now that the weekend is upon us. Just counting the hours now. If you guys haven't noticed, Gameloft is having a sale on 4 of their games this weekend for 0.99. Go to their website for the special, the market place will not have it there. Also, check out the Samsung site for Device and USB drivers placed last night.

    Very stoked. So stoked, in fact, I went to the local Best Buy to see if I could pre-order one, and all three mobile reps said, "We don't know anything about that phone." When I asked them to check their software, all three reported "October 12," and, "We can't take pre-orders." 1st Fail

    Then, while buying some home supplies at Target, I stopped by the mobile department to see if they might know something. First guy says, "Um, which phone?" Second guy says, "October 14." 2nd Fail

    I noticed October 12th on my Best Buy pre-order receipt as well. I think the best bet is to call the stores on Saturday afternoon to see who actually has some. I have many AT&T stores that are under a 30 minute drive (as well as two Best Buys) from me so I will just go to whichever one can confirm they have some.

    How about changing their websites S2 page to say "Oct 2" instead of "coming soon"?

    Or sending us that signed up for emails updates?
    I def agree with sending the emails. I do think its weird that the haven't sent them yet +1 for you. But you are proving my point that the internet spreads the word faster than a commercial

    exactly. commercials, their website (did not one person see the LG Thrill being advertised a full week in advance on AT&T. I still remember seeing "Coming Sept. 4" on their site), emails, anything. Your average person isnt going to be searching twitter and facebook for release dates. think of iphone release dates, theyre all over. AT&T is not exclusive to iPhones anymore, so they need to start making big deals about other phones as well, especially Android since it is the up-and-coming operating system.
    1) i've seen the commercials at least 5 times in the last week.

    2) You too are proving the fact that the internet is more efficient than commercials. You havent seen the commercials that have been playing but you see all of the ads on the internet. People don't have to search twitter. when companies announce stuff on twitter/facebook it doesnt just stay there. It goes to other internet sites that you clearly read lol

    It's still sad to see the ignorance of some phone reps. I went to 2 Best Buys last weekend, none of them knew about it or would not take pre-orders. Then talking my daughter to the mall I see this Best Buy mobile store. I didn't know there were such a thing. All they sell in there are cell phones and tablets. Anyways, I asked them about it and they said, sure we know about it and would you like to pre-order. And thought it about 10 seconds then said yes. That was my experience. You should have told them that they will have them this Sunday and watch their reaction. Then show up and say I told you so.

    That's a computer error. Trust me, head there Sunday and you'll get one. Bring 199.99 + tax, else they won't give you one.

    The more I'm checking things out, the more I'm getting comfortable with the switch from iPhone. DL double twist for Mac and it looks easy as pie.

    Just to make sure, I can use my parent's upgrade to get the new phone and put it under my line right? I currently have the iPhone 4 which I used my upgrade on about 1 year and 3 months ago (release date), and I'm not eligible for a full upgrade but my parents are. If I use their line, they don't have to get data plan on their line right? They're using dumb/slide/flip phones but letting me use their upgrade to get the SGSII since my iPhone 4 screen cracked. But I just want to make sure that I can use their upgrade to get a phone for my line instead of their's without having to pay the extra data on their line.

    You can use any upgrade on an eligible account. So yes what you are trying to do will work.

    The device is up on our website as of a few minutes ago...
