  • Matt S

    So not the T-Mobile version of the Galaxy S II?

  • David Sheppardini

    I have the SII LTE (or rather, the Skyrocket as it’s known here) but something tells me that unfortunately we won’t be getting this until about 6 months from now. It took what felt like FOREVER for the Skyrocket to get ICS (which I never installed because I used Custom Roms and eventually CM9.1) and I’m sure AT&T needs to screw things up and delay it. Hopefully soon the modders will be able to just work off the existing JB source code and come up with something good for us all.
