Well, I will get back to you on how well the phone is.
I just purchased the phone, but can't even activate it. The website does not recognize the SIM or IMEI number, nor does the automated phone prompts. So I guess it's back to the store I go straighten this out.
But it looks like quite a step up from what I am used to, just holding it.
They probably didn't activate it at check out.
LTE has arrived. The third carrier in Las Vegas with 10x10 LTE coverage
Coverage will expand to 100 million LTE pops for the first half of 2013, with the second half of 2013 expanding to 200 million POPs covered. Release 10 LTE (2×10, 2×20) will be better performing than all other competitors.
T-Mobile USA. “This year, we’re stepping on the gas again. We are making continued coverage improvements and launching an advanced LTE network
And that's the only part that the phone shows to me.
Got a little scared for a sec ha, still new to smartphones.
Overall, I love this phone.. however
Anyone having any issues activating new accounts on Tmobile? Says It could take 2-24 hours.

Guys, I SIM unlock my Exhibit I after rooting. The same rooting work on Exhibit II...So if you need to unlock
rst you have to root...which is easy with the one click file somebody create @ xda forum....
Download the drivers, put phone is usb debugging, dowload the zip file, unzip it, plug the phone and then click the bat file...wait for root to happen... Once this done...see my post on how to unlock..you need to use an app which allows you to get to your bin file...copy the file on your sdcard...the open that on your computer and you should use and Hex application to open it...jump to the adress specified in the unlock method....and there you will see your unlock 8 digit sequence numbers... Put the SIM for a different carrier in your phone and use the number on the unlock window...boom you're good to go.
Tmobile will give you the unlock after sometime...with continuous service. YEs...don't remember how long.
see my post here:
About to go get it

Motorola Triumph's Speeds from Virgin Mobile^ Samsung Exhibit II 4G Speeds^
Also it has 3 storage options!
I bought one of these for my wife yesterday, and haven't spent too much time with it yet. My overall impressions of it are that it is a nice phone.
The screen is nice, the touch screen responds well, and the image quality is very good. The phone is powerful, I haven't ran any benchmarks, or even ran bunches of apps at once to test it, but everything I did on the phone, it did it fast there was no sluggishness at all, just very fast responses. The size is nearly perfect, much nicer than the 3.2" screens on many smaller phones, and the overall size is much handier than the big 4" plus handsets I have handled.
The phone gets a good signal in a lot of places my wife's old VM Intercept didn't, of course that is more the network than the phone. I made a couple of short calls, and the call quality seemed good, didn't use the speakerphone so can't comment. In Augusta this afternoon I ran a speed test, only ran it once and got 4.7MB down load, 1.2 up and 110ms ping, the best I ever saw with VM was around 1MB down, and .2 up. The data is fast, very fast. I never really felt that the Virgin data was as bad as everybody let on, but my main points of comparison were Sprint contract service and Verizon via Page Plus, I now see the point that so many are making, Virgin Mobile has slow poke data. I am going to take the Sparq I bought for my daughter to try out the service with (will be buying her an Android once we port her number over), and see how it works out while I am working, if it works well where I need it (all over Burke County, GA), I may switch from Page Plus to one of the T-Mobile unlimited plans. Of course the real test will be when I go to Jenkins and Screven Counties.
I bought this just 2 days ago, I LOVE IT. Can't leave it alone.
I get excellent signal coverage (little sour part is I only get GPRS speeds at home, but wifi covers that)
There's 4G coverage nearby too, very fast.
Here's a few speed tests i've done
BTW did everyone know you can take a screen on your phone by holding the Home Button then Pressing the Power button once?
It saves it in the gallery. LOVE THAT.
The phone seems very very fast, powerful. Never had it freeze once, ever (can't say that about the Optimus V sadly.)
I've had 8-10 apps running at once including (ZDBox, Gas Buddy, TuneIn Radio, My-Cast, Twitter, and Opera) and ran as smooth as can be.
Battery life. This is all day today. (Unplugged at 7AM, recharged at times I thought i'd be using it alot and away from a place to charge.) All this with some very moderate use.
All in all, very satisfied.
Let me know if you have any other questions about the phone or such.
I connected my phone to the aux jack in my car for the first time and I was testing google music and audiogalaxy. Evertime a song was buffering, there was a really loud, high pitched interference noise coming through the speakers. Tried it in both cars with 2 different cables. Anyone else have this issue our know a way to fix it?
