Please let us know if the GPS bugs have been fixed. I'm still angry about the Galaxy S. Thanks and good luck.

It's actually $134 when you take into account the $15 in free App and Music store credit you get when you buy:

Credits will be applied to qualifying accounts automatically within 2 days of shipment and are valid through November 12, 2011. Limit one promotional credit per phone or tablet per customer.

Sadly, they want to add on another $15 per month fee to my purchase. So this phone would cost me around $500 over the course of a 2-year contract if I understand it correctly.

 

This is all probably because of the options I have selected. $149 for the phone itself plus the $15/month tacked on at the end and mandatory (I didn't want any extra stuff but I cannot order the phone without this option selected). I guess I won't get this phone the way others did. Smiley Sad

actually, I think I misunderstood the $15/month. It is the data plan that would be applied to the phone. just ordered. expecting phone mid-next month due to backorder.

That's right, the $15 data plan is an added monthly fee towards purchasing a smartphone such as the Galaxy S II.

Expecting mid-next month? Smiley Surprised

When you buy it at third party stores, how do you keep the current messaging/data plans? I'm on a family plan with "IMB UNLTD DOM - MSG" and since I had a Blackberry, I had the "Data
GPRS MB WAP/BBRY/ISP 2GB DOM $10.00/1GB ADDL - CMB3" plan. When I go to the website, however, it asks me to select a text messaging plan and data for hspa+/4g. Since my family plan already comes with unlimited texting and I pick the "unlimited one," does this mean that it's going to charge me $20 for something I already have?

Sorry, I don't know how to modify it. Went to the AT&T store today and with tax, it came out to $242.61 (without any additional monthly fees). I can cancel my order, but I really want to get it cheaper without losing what's in the family plan already. Help!

I bought two S2 phones at Best Buy on Sunday when they released. They price matched Wal Mart at $148.88. No problems.

There wasn't an ad. I just went to my local Wal Mart store and they told me the price (they had the shelf tag on Saturday but no stock yet, and still no stock on Sunday morning). Best Buy just called the local Wal Mart for me for a price on Sunday morning and then completed the sale with me.

I find that all a bit odd especially because of

 

1)Walmart is selling the GS2 for $164.99
http://www2-walmart.letstalk.com/product/product.htm?prId=39771

 

and

 

2) The Best Buy price match policy is that they have to call the local competitor and that location has to have it in stock with an advertised price. No stock = no price match.

From http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Help-Topics/Bestbuy.com-Price-Match-Guarantee/pcmcat204400050011.c?id=pc...

"What if the competitor does not have the item in stock or has limited quantities of the product?

Sometimes a retailer will advertise a product as having limited quantities in stock. If the item is out of stock or the competitor has advertised as limited quantities of an item, it is not eligible for price matching. Likewise, if Best Buy has a product that is advertised as being limited in quantity it will not be eligible for price matching. "

 

So are you SURE you got it for less than what Walmart was advertising it for and had Best Buy go against their own price match policy to sell you this phone?
