Unfortunately, I was talked into buying this phone, by a friend, when I went to purchase the Galaxy S II... guess I should have stuck with my original plan. This phone is very aesthetically pleasing but, I started having issues with it after only a month. I had many issues with calls not coming through, text messages not being sent or received, tons of call drops, general glitchey-ness and wifi pretty much not ever working. After putting up with all the bs for about a month, and numerous calls to my service provider, they finally deemed the device defective, and let me swap it out for a shiny new one. Everything was great... Or so I thought. Again, after about a month, I started having the same issues. And every single time I contact my carrier about it... all they can tell me is that it's the phone, not the service... which I do believe, seeing as I never had these problems until I acquired this device. So, I guess I'll just have to deal for another 8 months, until I'm up for another upgrade. Also, on both phones, I've noticed a weird pink circle in the middle of every photo I take, without using the flash. ?? Pretty annoying.
