    So AT&T stores in Texas don't have the SGS2, but Best Buy does.

    For any of you who bought from Best Buy before, and were available for an upgrade, how can I be assured of keeping my current unlimited data package that I was grandfathered in with?

    Thanks.

    Just make sure you tell them about your grandfathered unlimited plan. I did the same but after looking up my account info using the preinstalled AT&T account app I noticed the Best Buy guy put me in the cheap $15 200mb plan or whatever mb the $15 one is. I just called AT&T up and told them to put me back to my $30 unlimited plan. There was no problems with the request. I did think it was funny the lady on the phone asked if I really wanted to pay more for the unlimited plan @ $30 and of course I said yes. I ain't going to lose that plan. When AT&T gets real 4G, that might be a diffrent story, but I'll be fighting to keep it once LTE rolls out here.

    Best Buy will also match the Walmart price - if a Walmart in your area caries the GS2. One of ours does for $148. Sprint has some promotion for their version for $99 and BB was matching that price.

    I went in to buy last Saturday and they did not give me any problems at all about the price match. I decided not to buy right then, going to wait a few weeks and see what comes out. I am in no real rush and want to be 100% sure about the phone I buy and right now I am not sold on the GS2.

    You also might want to check out Costco. They're usually cheaper and they have a 90 day return/exchange policy. They don't carry iPhones though so, if you decide you don't like the S2 and want to swap it for an iPhone, you won't be able to do it at Costco.

    Not trying to excuse what happened, but that's someone not doing their job correctly. The truck isn't supposed to be received until it's put away or the store is closed.

    I've had good experiences getting phones from Best Buy. A lot of it has to do with the person you deal with.

    Yes. I don't think it's much, though.

    I had a very positive experience in buying my AT&T Galaxy S II from Best Buy. Also, when I found it cheaper at another local business a few weeks after buying it, I went up to the store and they price matched. No hassles!

    I also had a positive experience today with Best Buy (terrible with AT&T) but that's another story. In any case, AT&T has a special right now for 50% off some phones (accessible via logicbuy.com). I picked up 3 phones today, SG2 for myself and iphone for each of my daughters. I think AT&Ts site had a mistake in that I was able to get both iphones to add to my cart with 50% off. Typically you can't get any promotion on the iphones. Trick was to add the SG2 to my cart first. In any case, I added all 3 to my cart, printed the page and took it down to Best Buy. They price matched it without even blinking an eye. I wanted to go thru Best Buy as I had a load of gift cards to use. They also have 30 return and no restocking fee. Overall good to deal with.

    Yes, you need the membership. I'm on with a friend, so I pay less than the original membership. It's worth it to me because I do shop there for other things. My main reason for buying my phone there is the 90 day return policy. Having been stuck with broken Blackberries over and over and not getting any support from RIM, it was important to me to have enough time to try out a phone before committing to keeping it. Some problems, at least for me, don't show up immediately. 90 days gave me time to put the phone(s) through it's paces to insure everything was operational.

    I wish I'd bought my last Blackberry from Costco. It would have saved me from being stuck with a phone that didn't ring, for the last 2 years. For me, the membership is well worth it.
