    So what they are saying is that the Galaxy S II won't be on verizon... but the Galaxy S II LTE will be?

    Vigor over bionic if you can wait, for SURE... Still no word on the prime yet though? It only makes sense if you think about it... Why would they want two phones that are near identical, one is a bit better, and they cost the same?

    Go with the prime and leave the competition behind ;)

    I can see how you wouldn't want to carry the SGS2 and the Prime because of the similarities... but why would Verizon be the only ones to pick up on that? Might they be getting the prime first?

    Bummer, was looking forward to seeing how they would alter it. We still have the Prime to look out for, just wish we had more news on it.

    Whew - thought for a minute that VZW pooched it again. I am very curious to see what comes of this and how it stacks up to the Bionic.

    Looks like it's Bionic, Vigor, Prime, or bust. Doesn't bother me any.

    My contract with Verizon expires in December. Whatever's the best phone to come out between now and then is what I'm going to get.

    I think it's funny that the first rumor is VZW will get it first... now the rumor is VZW WON'T get it lol

    I was thinking the same thing. That's why it sucks to post rumors, but unfortunately, they sometimes turn into "scoops" so we gotta post em.

    This really seems crazy, but I suppose it sorta makes sense in a... well... thinking... <scratches head>

    Nope I can only come up with... "What were you thinking VZW? The SGS2 has been the hottest selling Android ever! (based upon sheer numbers in short a time-frame)" This seems dumb.

    Wonder if its because how locked down Verizon wants their phones and Samsung not wanting it to be so locked down.

    I was looking forward to this phone.
    I suspect they could not fit LTE in and Verizon said no thanks.
