    iPhone 5 was supposed to be mid this year, no news on that?

    S2 galaxy looks the goods, just hope it's not on a mighty cap plan.

    I can't seem to find anywhere that stocks them on a plan, apparently they were supposed to be avail April?

    Give ADW a go - sense and touchwiz suck imo...

    Will take a little more effort to get ADW rocking as there are so many options and you need additional widgets, however once the time has been spent it is done :)

    Did anyone get any sort of manual or documentation with their phone ?

    Went to Samsung Australia's site and nothing for the S II ....... edit seems like the Galaxy S manual is the same for both 1 & 2

    I guess will have to try pommyland


    anyway how do you remove the back cover ? Is that a button or latch you push at the bottom ? Dont want to risk breaking it on its first day...edit...... hate covers like this, keep thinking I will break the bloody thing....anyway now have it off

    About $680 all up, there's a $19 International transaction fee, otherwise it would be about $660.

    I'm waiting for mine at the moment, I ordered last Wednesday. And it says it's been passed on for delivery in Australia.

    Yep, all of them support 900 and 850 together, which is awsome!

    quad band 3g + quad band 2g = will work on pretty much any network on the planet (except obviously 4g networks)

    I love the ability to buy the phone now while on the shitty 3 network and in 2 months able to bring the phone with me as I transfer to Telstra

    Ours arrived today. For the wife unfortunately...

    Although, Handtec sent an email saying they accidentally sent us two. Obviously they want it back, but if this phone grows on me, maybe I'll buy it instead!

    wtf buy 1 free 1? no fair :eek:

    plenty of rumours going on in engadget, some say Apple was unable to secure some fab factories off Samsung to manufacture the A5 shrunk down for IP5 (32nm i think), ahem I wonder why Samsung would do that huh?? lols
    that plus the lawsuit case pinpoints to Apple being butthurt at the moment :D

    Mine arrived today...but can't take it to work as I work in a factory and dont wanna risk scratching the screen. Any ideas where I can get a good screen protector and a nice case?...off someone reliable on ebay?....Had so many rip offs on there but if someone could point me to a good buyer on there...that would be absolutely awesome!

    Still cant get over how AWESOME this screen is though.....simply stunning!:D

    searching i9100 in ebay brought up a ton of results. From there I just went shortlisting any buyer with a decent screen protector. I chose one coming from HK with a total cost of $4 (inc shipping). The seller had like 4000 comments of feedback.

    Im waiting for invisibleshield in VIC to get stock for sgs2 and then I'll end up chucking one of those on :)
