    My guess would be just that Preach. They realized that there would be no point releasing a variant of the GSII in September, when they'd be releasing something similar, yet better, most likely before the end of the year.

    How do you know that Verizon passed up on it? What if its the fact that Samsung did not want to stuff the LTE chip into their phone? Samsung has the approach with their galaxy line of having the thinnest, lightest, sleakest looking phone. Which is not a bad thing, but for it to compete on Verizon's network, they would have to put the LTE chip in, and from what I have heard, is quite large. I just think that Samsung didn't think it was worth redesigning the entire phone for one network (yes, one of the biggest) when they are doing just fine on other carriers, globally.

    I have a friend who rides Samsung, he just loves everything Samsung, and really has 0 nice to say about Verizon, other than their converage. He promised me that it is Verizon's fault and they turned the phone down. I dont see how that is even possible. I think Samsung just didnt feel like cooperating with what Big Red wanted. Any official word on who said no go?

    They have redesigned the SGSII for 2 other carriers, why would they have a problem changing it for Verizon?

    No, my guess would be it is the Prime, but there's just not enough evidence to specifically suggest that so I didn't mention it.

    i know those rumors have been out there, but i haven't heard anything lately - is there something recent i've missed? i know there was the report late last week/earlier this week that the Prime was spotted at VZW HQ, but that just means they're looking at it.

    Well I guess you are leaving Verizon. Because Prime is rumored to go to AT&T.. And there has been nothing on the HTC Vigor coming soon. I will say the earliest will be late 4th Q. If you cant wait that long. Then I guess you will be leaving Verizon while 10 more come to Verizon... I will not leave Verizon because they have the best service here in NC.
