I knew ATT would not let TMO show them up! I lol when I saw the specs for the ATT samsung LTE phone, I was a bit taken last month when both Tmobile and ATT released there galaxy SII and the TMO version was superior in almost all aspects, larger screen, faster processor, faster download speed (ATT HSPA vs TMO HSPA), and more UMTS bands one notably that can use ATTs HSPA, and a higher capacity battery. The ATT version was just regular stock, I wondered is ATT really going to let TMO show them up? I was all excited at first thinking this was TMO way of pulling out from under ATTs death grip...
ATT just did a gotcha last month... They got all those eager beavers who wanted the SII just in rival of the Iphone 4s. ATT got them in, got you on contract ( or to renew contract), and got you suckered. AS lest than a month later there releasing a SII version with internal spec wise is almost identical to the TMO version.
1.5 ghz processors
4.5 in screen
Super AMOLED Plus WVGA touch screen
Ahh the Icing on the gotcha cake was... the TMO version can access ATT 850 mhz HSPA network which was said to make the TMO version "future proof", but the ATT version has LTE and is backwards compatible with with there own HSPA network.
OK ATT nice Gotcha joke for anyone who bought the SII in the last month. However with there data plan on the SII "skyrocket" @ 200 MB at $15 or 2GB at $25, or $45 to use it as a hot spot and only get 4GB of data. that the biggest Gotcha Hands down!
Ill stick to Tmobile for now where for $50 ( in comparison to ATT $45 for data only) I have my 4g HSPA web UNLIMITED , tethering, and INCLUDING unlimited talk and txt.

Re: Still not good enough..
said by ksharp25:Battery Stable, you mean like the user being able to replace the battery?
Maybe I am a fanboy...maybe elitist, I dont know. But its still not good enough. I want a fully capable, battery STABLE, TRUE 4g LTE iPhone. And until one exists...Im not upgrading to 4G anything.
