    yeah but it could be awhile for vzw to get the S2. from what i read AT&T is gonna get it first.

    if your gonna go 3G i would check out the X2. it is gonna be a nice device. unless you have the time to wait for bionic or S2

    not sure. Last i saw was to expect Q3 at the very earliest but was worded that it could easily be later.

    but im still new to the game. I could be mistaken.

    If you go by the Past with Verizon was the last to get the last Galaxy S phone. If Verizon does get the Galaxy S2 I believe it will be the earliest Late 3rdQ or latest 1stQ next year.

    Back to topic (and a good one) - What amazes me is that the phones don't appear to be ready for LTE. Didn't Verizon share the technology/specs with the cell phone manufacturers so they could be ready with the "kinks" pretty much worked out? It seems like the switching from 3G to LTE is causing radio problems with the designers. Verizon can hardly "showcase" its new network/speed without devices that can use it properly. I hope they can get some great LTE phones out to use soon. And what about VoLTE? I am really hoping the Bionic will include that feature, otherwise it may be worth waiting. So many unknowns to deal with?

    I would bet the farm that the bionic will have VoLTE but if LTE isnt workin then whats the point.Like i said im with Sprint now and i know its not LTE but it works.
