I bought mine through a special offer at Best Buy. This is now considered an older model (at present the S4 is the current model) and I couldn't see paying hundreds for an old model so I found a deal elsewhere.
That said, it's really a great phone but there are a few things I wish I had known about up front. Maybe they'll help you.
I wish I had known that...
... not all S2s are alike. As the product title indicates, this is specifically a SGH-T989 and this model is designed especially for T-Mobile. ... when you're searching for a case, be sure to search for one that works with the SGH-T989 instead of just an S2 because the cases will fit differently. ... smart phone batteries never last very long, especially if you stay signed in to everything. It's not a bad idea to purchase extra batteries (again, designed for the SGH-T989). I bought three of...
When the phone was sent to me the charging. Port didn't work had to buy a separate charger for my phone so while my phone charges up no one can contact me if there's an emergency other then that it works great but I feel not being able to charge it normally should have been mentioned in the details before I spent $264.
I had the Samsung Galaxy S1 t959 Vibrant. Liked that one, but wanted a couple extra features it didn't have. Wasn't going to consider the S3 or S4, as way too expensive. The on off button on the S2 t989 isn't recessed like the S1, so you can feel it without looking for it. The screen is larger than the S1. It have a custom choice of what to pick to powersave, which the S1 didn't. The graphics are better and easy for my old eyes to see. Yep, I think most of the galaxy models have battery drain like the some iphones, but a big extended battery with cover is available. I got mine on ebay. That way you don't have to worry much of batt drain. I'm on tmobile, and all I had to do was remove the sim and micro sd card from the S1, and put in in the S2, and was up and running. Virtually no complaints about my new/used S2.
