    If this does end up supporting LTE then this is definitely my next phone. If it is just 3g then it's going to be a tough choice between this and the Bionic.

    I agree as well. Everything about the GS2 is better if it comes with LTE.

    Because the phone has been out for several months now in Asia and Europe (parts)... and if you just look at youtube for example, you'll see hundreds of awesome reviews and unboxings... Definitely my next phone even without 4g. The hardware and software is superior to the Bionic in every category.

    Exactly. It's been out for awhile all around the world and has nothing but stellar reviews. I agree that the track record with the Galaxy S models is spotty, but none of those issues seem to have translated to the Galaxy S II. Samsung has really learned from their mistakes and upped their game with this one.

    I'm right there with you. I don't need 4G even though I live in a 4G area. If it comes out close to me NE2, and the price isn't through the roof, I'm all over this!

    I expect a 299.99(or more) price tag for sure.

    Only if it's LTE. If it's just 3G, then it won't be any higher than $199 on contract.

    Probably the closest thing we have to compare is the Samsung Charge. The Charge is $299.99 new and $199.99 certified preowned on a 2 year contract. Usually, Amazon or one of the mail order houses will be cheaper.

    But of course the Charge is LTE, which is why it's $299. All of Verizon's LTE phones start out in the $249 - $299 price range when they're first released. They haven't had a 3G smartphone over $199 in years (except the 32gb iPhone, but Verizon doesn't set the iPhone prices). The Galaxy S II on Verizon will only be $249 - $299 if it's LTE. It would be ridiculous of them to sell a 3G only version for more than $199. It completely breaks the pricing structure that they have established for themselves and it eliminates the "premium" price they've created for LTE phones.

    So, again, if it's 3G only, it won't be any more than $199 on contract. If it's LTE, we're looking at $249 - $299 on contract (probably $299).

    I'm not a Sprint customer, but as far as I know Sprint has always charged $199 for WiMAX phones with a 2 year contract, even the high end ones (like the upcoming Photon). I wouldn't anticipate that to change. All of the major carriers in the U.S. have stuck with $199 on contract for what they call a 4G phone except Verizon. I guess Verizon feels confident enough in their reputation for quality and in the performance of LTE vs. the other current "4G" networks to charge a higher price for the phones.
