Samsung Galaxy Finds Freedom On


Free at last, free at last… the Samsung Galaxy is finally available to the masses as it has popped up for sale unlocked on And based on the bands it should work on both T-Mobile and AT&T, with only TMO enjoying the theoretical possibility of 3G connectivity.


It will cost you $590 if you want to pick this up and ship date is unknown, but the Galaxy has been hiding from most of the developed world for quite some time and the bounty might be worth it if you’ve been following this thing since it was first rumored or even launched.

  1. Why wouldn’t this get 3G on ATT?

  2. @cotton Although T-Mobile and AT&T use the same frequencies for voice, they use different ones for 3G. Presumably the radio in this phone doesn’t support the 3G frequencies AT&T uses.

  3. @denny thanks for the info

  4. may i ask, what are the cons of buying an unlocked phone (or unlocking your own phone)?

  5. 3G should be 3G! Why dont ALL companies standardize on frequencies so it can be used for all! This would help lower phone production costs i imagine.

  6. Tauran, what you are really asking is why would a carrier not spend tons of money to redo their existing infrastructure in order to lower production costs for phones that they don’t make while breaking all of their current customer’s phones in the process?

  7. finally available my ass, i’ve had an unlocked galaxy for two weeks now – just out of curiosity, is this phandroid being usa or uk centric?

  8. I’m guessing given recent news about the “Behold II”, the Galaxy will not be coming to T-Mobile.

  9. 4G should help in that regard. If europe and usa could harmonize their mobile frequencies…
    The galaxy is the only android phone to offer 8gb of ROM onboard storage, which is very useful.

  10. am i the only one who thinks the price is a bit too hight ?!!!

  11. Of course the price is high. The Galaxy’s been for sale on other sites for quite some time and the prices have dropped considerably in that time, although I don’t know if they were ever as high as $590. I find it funny that Newegg carries it, Engadget Mobile picks it up and suddenly it becomes a story. This is, as they say, an old story.

  12. @Vincent; If I’m not mistaken, the onboard memory is an internal microSD. So you can’t install apps on it. I think it has 512mb ROM.

  13. Amazingly (or not so amazingly) basically all of Europe and much of the rest of the world have managed to standardize on the 2100 frequency allowing for interop amongst those countries. Yet, the US and Canada (where I am) have gone a different frequency route. Sigh.

    One thing the iPhone definitely seems to have gotten right is supporting UMTS frequencies 850, 1900, and 2100 allowing for major interop.


  14. Not it has 8gb of internal memory with 1gb split for apps and can take an additional 16 gb card for 32gb add apps to sd and bam tons of storage space for apps music movies and pics
