Galaxy S passes through FCC, making its way to T-Mobile !?!
This phone looks good, I am happy T-Mobile is getting it.
That said, I don't think I will upgrade from Nexus One. I like having the camera flash, I still can't believe Samsung left this off, especially when the Behold II had it...that seems like a downgrade?
This is what ppl. with tzones did when the hd2 cameout on launch day when you were getting 2 hd2 for $200.
Opened a new account got the hd2 on subsidized price after 14 days they cancelled the account paying the tmobile $200 cancellation fee and kept the hd2 phone, then they put the tzones sim in the hd2 and started using tzones internet on hd2. That way alot of ppl. ended up with a new hd2 for only $300 a piece and used it with tzones.
On the 19th of July it is said that ALL TOMOBILE PHONES WILL BE FREE ON A 2YR CONTRACT.
So i am sure many more ppl. will do the same.
If you want a new smartphone and dont want to loose the toznes, this is your way out, but remember you can never call customer service telling them your using tzones on a new smartphone.
Other option you have is to buy one on craiglist which is not always the safest route.
There is nothing dishonest about what i suggest, there is a system and your using it to your advantage, which is exactly what these multinational companies also do and make tons of money
Check the MSRP on the phone 1st, may be cheaper than hardware (~$200) + activation fee ($35) + monthy service used (>$30) + ETF ($200)
If rumors are true every tmobile phone will be free on fathers day at that time you wont have to pay the $200 for the phone.
Another example i can give you is of a few days ago when hd2 was offer by tmobile for $99.
So now the MSRP comes down to $0 for and cancellation is $200 activation is $35 with one month usage $30= 265
The above is an example, if you want the best of both worlds like lowly priced smartphone + tzones this is the safest route, otherwise you can get it on craiglist.
The AT&T version is ugly and it looks like a toy phone.
Anyway, I'm sure some of us here has come in contact with a Samsung phone one time or another and I'm sure a general consensus with of their phones is that the reception SUCKS with all of them. Well, I was reading up on the Galaxy S and I came across this reassuring bit of information.
