    Koodo releases the Samsung Galaxy S II X

    http://mobilesyrup.com/2012/08/10/ko...galaxy-s-ii-x/

    Price: $150 + $150 tab

    Clearly the best Android phone on Koodo's line-up.
    Checked specs vs GNexus and found out these:
    Lower resolution (480x800, Gnex is higher)
    Higher MP cameras
    Almost same screen size
    ICS with Touchwiz vs plain vanilla ICS
    Unlike Gnex, you can expand memory
    All other specs seem the same

    Quick question I only recently bought the HTC One V to snag the 6GB plan from a store.
    Can I return this phone (14 days not over yet) and get the SIIX?

    As long as you are under the requirement for return you sure can return the One V

    Yeah, I am still within the 14 day slot.
    Can I go there and say, I am not happy with the current phone (it's too slow and small) and buy a SIIX? Expect it to be only $75+tax more and then I should be good.

    I mean does the phone have to be damaged to be returned, or can I be just plain unhappy

    TIA

    You can even say "I took the HTC to get the 6gb plan, I wanted the s2x anyways". They.don't care.

    In fact koodo Facebook page told people to do this.

    Yup. Just talked to the store guys, and they were more than happy to exchange.

    The good thing I have heard. They say its the t mobile one. So it's aws capable too. That's always good to have. And theres a cm9 available for it unlike the one v. Big wins all around!

    Quick question. I noticed under Koodo this is listed as a 3G phone - but Telus offers 4G LTE. I was leaning toward jumping ship to Telus to pick up the SIII or the iPhone in September, but then Koodo just released this phone and I caught that speed difference.

    So it is true - correct? That Telus offers LTE and, more importantly, Koodo only offers up to 3G speeds.

    Due to Koodo's crappy phones (when I want to actually upgrade) - I feel it is better now to cut bait and start a relationship with Telus. Albeit both the buy price of this phone and data plans are more affordable with Koodo. I also found out today that it appears Koodo does offer tethering (a big feature I need).

    thanks
    Q: How do you find a small cap fund manager?
    A: Find a large cap fund manager and wait.

    FYI Koodo is Telus and Telus is Koodo .. so if you have an LTE phone then get the LTE sim from Koodo and you will get LTE speeds!

    Thanks, I am aware of that. But what are you saying exactly?

    Koodo isn't saying "this is an LTE 4G phone" - there site specs clearly say HSPA (3G). A typo? Or one can actually ask and get an LTE SIM from Koodo? (And the rest of the fools know nothing and get the non-LTE SIM?)

    IMO I see this clearly as - "Koodo is no frills so you get the 3G speed only; if you want 4G LTE go with Telus". But you are suggesting otherwise ... NON?

    A detail point but rather major IMO. Part of the larger shell game.

    Cheers!

    What he is saying is partly correct. If you have an LTE phone, and put your koodo SIM in, you will get LTE. Its a little known fact but koodo SIMs are LTE enabled! !
