T-Mobile Accidentally Tweets Galaxy S 2 Coming? Or Not?

At first glance quite a few of you are taking this at face value and acknowledging that T-Mobile has accidentally copped to the upcoming arrival of the Galaxy S 2. Or have they? As it turns out, was this just an errant tweet as T-Mobile later stated after removing the tweet in question?

The bottom line is that one of two things took place:

1) Someone accidentally gave away and/or acknowledged the upcoming arrival of the Galaxy S 2.

2) Someone mistook the Galaxy S 2 and the Galaxy S 4G as one and the same and answered the question as pictured above.

So in my eyes, the likely scenario is number 2, however that would have NOTHING to do with the actual possibility that T-Mobile will receive the Galaxy S 2 at some point. I’m just going on the idea that since the names are roughly the same minus a single letter that someone read the tweet accidentally and responded in error.

    It’s most likely Scenario #2 but it could be they accidentally spilled the beans…I think I remember them doing something similar around the time the Vibrant was about to be released…

        That’s interesting.. I was in a group with CEO Philipp Humm today and I could have swore he said “It’s not that we don’t want the Iphone, we don’t want to ruin our relationship with Google”…

          lol, oh yeah? He said that? Cool, I was chillin’ with Carmelo Anthony today. He said he was going to the Knicks.

          Anyway, I don’t see how Apple is planning on regaining their dominance on the handset market without making the iPhone 5 or next year’s model available on Sprint & T-Mobile. They already have some Chinese CDMA network unlocking Verizon’s iPhone and getting it to work. Make a move Apple, I’m trying to have an iOS device off EDGE already.

    People come on get real its going to ALL carriers just as the first one did. It wouldn’t make any sense to start selling a worldwide device and then cut some carriers out of the mix its NOT scenario 2. I guarantee you all carriers including t-mo is gonna get a variant of the GS2 and no GS4G does not count as a variant.

    I was watching BET the other day and they were giving away as they claim Galaxy S2′s provided by T-Mobile themselves to wild n out Wednesday winners along with a $250 gift card. Then again the box looked like it said galaxy tab but then again they did mention that the device wasn’t even out yet sooo. its possible that its near.

    This is an intentional “accident,” part of a marketing effort.

    Like JBrowne said, of course this is coming to T-Mobile, just as the Samsung Galaxy S was released to all carriers.

    P.S. That’s the phone I am buying. I loved my Vibrant, miss it madly, but had to let it go so I can get the S2.

    P.P.S. Samsung is the world’s biggest conglomerate and the mobile division is bored and on an ego trip. They have set about the goal of becoming the world’s largest handset manufacturer.

    You don’t get to #1 by giving a U.S. carrier the exclusive on your hot new handset. Apple saw how well that went.

    Will be interesting to see the configuration each carrier orders and what T-Mobile and others will name the device.

      In retrospect the galaxy s wasn’t watered down too much so to speak. it just lacked an ffc I think it was right?? but nahhh Justin Beiber’s movie pre-loaded is a possibility please don’t joke like that lol I wouldn’t want Justin beiber on my phone.

      • Bimmerz

        lol @ Nexus Eddie! Too funny!

        @ JBrowne – I think he’s comparing it to the Epic. In comparison (and IMO), the Epic was the best of the 4 GS’s launched last year. Even w/o a KB (which I know many don’t want), it still had a FFC, LED notification and camera flash, as well felt the most solid of the 4.

        Anyway, hopefully we all get the same good specs on all 4 carriers – not having 1 or 2 better than others. I haven’t decided if I want the GS2 or not, but it would be nice to have some choices. GS2, LG O2x (or even better, the LG 3D), and the rumored Pyramid. I guess we’ll find out soon enough…

        • Anonymous

          The epic wasn’t the original galaxy s, it was unofficially the galaxy s pro just renamed epic 4g that comparison doesn’t exactly work especially as the memory isn’t as good.

        • Bimmerz

          Oh yeah, I had forgotten that the Epic was originally the Pro version (Galaxy S Pro). So yeah, not a good comparison, although I still wondered if that OP was comparing these 2? No matter. I just hope whatever version Tmo gets, that it has all the bells and whistles from the spec sheet. :)

    That pisses me off. I was thrilled that device was coming to T-Mobile.(I thought) Now it seems like I must have been dumb to think that T-Mobile might just go after a top of the line device. We usually get some device that has been picked clean. Come off the bull and give us something to look forward to. The vibrant 4G is just crap.

  • Anonymous

    Im going to check out AT&T’s 4g service in my area, if it is anything close to what I’m getting with T-Mobile I might just jump on one of their new Android devices. They have got a couple of very good ones coming in just a week at a very cheap price. Will have to check it out. Would rather stay with T-Mobile but I want something special in hardware and the two new phones they are getting are just that. The network speed will determine everything.

    • Anonymous

      ATTs 4G network is not even up and running yet and won’t be until sometime in March… or so they claim.

  • janeth

    Ok i admit i have t-mobile but i think i will be switching to verizon or At&t im not complaining about coverage or network speed because i live in a good t-mobile area. But im tired of t-mobile not getting good phones .att is getting the motorola atrix ,verizon got the iphone and its getting the htc thunderbolt motorola bionic 4G and sony ericson xperia play. Which i was pissed of when i heard it got announced for verizon because verizon has never ever gotten a sony ericsson phone . And t-mobile does get a few sony ericsson phones but they are crap! And i am really tired of always hearing about awesome phones that are supposevly coming to t-mobile and they never come to t-mobile and they always end up going to at&t like the xperia x10 i remember a long time ago when it was announced that it had t-mobiles 3G aws band . And i remember coming on here and reading posts about it supposevly comin to t-mobile soon and then a few months later bam it came to at&t . Also some of u might get mad at me for saying this but look at at&ts ,verizons and t-mobiles phone lineup and upcoming phones t-mobile has the crappiest phones from the other companies. I really like t-mobile and there pricing but is it really that hard to get an awesome phone on t-mobile? The only reason i dont switch cuz i know for a fact if i do ima pay twice as much on verizon or att than whAt i pay right now . But o well ima have to cut back on some things and make the change cuz i want an awesome phone .

Also i know for a fact verizon has better coverage than t-mobile but like i said idk if too change or not cuz i dnt wanna pay that much but o well i guess u get what u pay for .

          I dont believe in bashing people for their opinions, it seems like you have been let down by t-mobile but i would say before you switch to really think about the idea of other carriers getting all these super phones we speak of. Dual Core on FroYo is kind of a sham, it’s not really necessary because they dont work in tandem. One chip is primary and the other chip works as a backup. HoneyComb and Ice Cream will be better equipped to really get the most out of dual core, but until then it’s just nice to say, but wont really change much.

          I’m not sold on the Atrix, if anyone has ever owned a MotoBlur product, or had to experience one for an extended period of time, i dont know that they would be excited about it either. The docking features of this are nice in theory, but again, I’ve seen this device in play, and it lags with every dock you set-up except for the multimedia dock. Good Concept, poor execution. So take that feature away you have a regular phone with quite possibly the worst UI Skin of all the OEMs.

          I cant say anything about the thunderbolt however, the bionic, or the revolution (my favorite of them all). I hope t-mobile does get something to stack up against these phones. (I use tmobile HD7 and att IP4 currently) I would love to get rid of ATT but right now it’s so cheap for me in comparison to Verizon I just cant stomach paying more for things that are free or cost way less with other carriers. Unlimited everything with 4G internet will be 79.99 on tmobile soon, and its the same on Sprint save for calling landlines. That package would cost $135 before taxes with Verizon’s proposed $15 4G surcharge. I cant justify paying $55 more a month for a phone marginally better in what? Screen size? Also it’s the little things with Verizon, like charging higher restocking fees if you return prodcuts($35/$10), higher termination fees($350/$200), $3/FREE!!! for VVM. You guys on t-mobile take it for granted because VVM is a free service, but Verizon the most expensive carrier here also nickel and dimes you. I’m sure their coverage will be fine, not sure if their 4G coverage will be as expansive as you’d like it to be immediately, but as long as it’s where you live that’s what counts initially. Good luck, maybe if you start to steal lunch everyday instead of buying it you can pay Verizon… lol…

        They all have planning and strategy. However, unlike the competition, T-Mobile doesn’t have too many options with their high-end devices. You can go myTouch 4G, G2, or HD7…. Only two options for Android and one for W7. Step inside AT&T or Verizon and the story will be incredibly different.

    of course if it doesn’t happen, i won’t be upset and start looking at other providers. i like t-mobile and i’m not going to dump them over something trivial like that. my current vibrant still works. i’m happy.

    Hmm…. I just thought of something. Maybe we can figure out debut date of the phone by looking at 1) the type of movie T-Mobile would put on the S2 and 2) when will that movie be released to DVD.

    On the HD2 we got two Transformer movies, the Vibrant was Avatar, and the Samsung Galaxy S 4G is Inception.

    There’s an action movie called Battle: Los Angeles coming to theaters on March 11.

    That appears the type of movie that T-Mobile would put on the S2.

    A March release in theaters means about a July release to DVD.

    T-Mobile will debut the S2 in July 2011 and it will have the movie Battle: Los Angeles on it.

    And it should be noted that the Vibrant was T-Mobile’s summer phone (T-Mobile always likes to release a phone for the summer).

    So this would all line up perfectly for the S2 in July.

          I suppose we will have a good estimate on the SGS2 price once TMO announces their FULL SGS4G price. Honestly my guess is $550 for the SGS4G and $575-600 for the other. UNLESS they drop the price on the Vibrant in order to keep the new one at the magical $499.99 price point. I hope it’s cheaper for you.

        Who cares about anything other than Android? Did you miss the Android sales part of the post you replied to?

    the only waybI will get another samsung is if it has the best harware AND has excellent rom support from team whiskey, I dont trust samsung in it’s ability to stay on top of os updates, I even triedtheir froyo update and went back to tw room becase samsung froyo was junk in comparison to other roms, thats sad.

    I guess the first Galaxy S wasn’t high end when T-Mobile was the first carrier to launch it.. do any of you really understand or read what you post? Why wouldn’t they get the Samsung Galaxy S II? The first one sold great and believe it or not the majority of owners are happy with it.

  • Anonymous

    I believe the phone will make it to TMO but we ARE getting a shiny new Galaxy S what next week or somethin? TMO will probly let that one ride out before they get the Galaxy S 2.

    Hey if they wait long enough then it could guarantee two things: 1. The Samsung Dual Core and not the Nvidia(I dunno which is actually coming) 2. Ice Cream

    I think the only way this phone will not be perfect(aside from the Slow to update Touch Wiz) is it may still be missing the NOTIFICATION LED light. I miss having one. Other than that I hope we get it this summer because it will be mine just like the Vibrant was/is.

  • Martinchav

    Ok why would they mistake the two phones when the official T-Mobile tweet said SAMSUNG GALAXY S 4G is 149.99
    Why would they say pricing to follow…

      Very good point>>>>>>>>>>>>>

    As someone stated below me, like or not, the Vibrant sold like crazy on t-mobile, it sold better than any other Galaxy S phone, so of course t-mobile is going to get the Galaxy S 2. I also dont see a reason why they wouldnt release them all at the same time like they did last time around(except for the fascinate). A lot of people are bashing Samsung for the updates, and i get why you could be mad if you have a Behold 2. However if youre an owner of the Vibrant, you got your update before any other Galaxy S phone on any other US Carrier. Why are you complaining? Also it’s not like anyone is updating their phones to Gingerbread, which was the other complaint. you buy a phone for the hardware and what software you get out of the box. If you are savvy enough to know about updates and differences in android versions, you should know that your best bet is a stock android phone. I’m pretty sure tmobile is the only carrier that offers stock android phones anyway(nexus 1, nexus S, G2, G1). Also I’ve played with the Galaxy S 4G running 2.2 out of the box, my quadrant standard score on my hacked Vibrant still is 600 points better than theirs out of the box.

    Point is, even if you do the update, you’ll still have touchwiz slowing down the hardware, just like espresso sense running over the MT4G slows it down considerably.

    You’re tech savvy enough to go into a blog and complain about android features your phone doesnt have? Take advantage of the amazing hardware and flash a rom over it.

    • Taaars

      That’s why I said specifically I would get the samsung galaxy 2 if it had the best Hardware AND excellent rom support from team whiskey. And although vibrant got the first froyo update here in the USA, but it’s one the last makers to update. Also, people have the right to expect os updates, telling everyone you should be happy with what you got, and never expect updates while other makers are updating there units is silly. If samsung told everyone never to expect an update to newer versions of Android, I think they wouldn’t sell many units. And if their software development team cannot keep up with updates in a timely manner, then samsung should abandon touch whiz and go vanilla.

        I dont know where your argument is coming from because clearly you deducted something totally different from my post than what I said. I didnt say people should never expect OS updates, I am saying however you shouldnt buy a phone on Monday, then standby on a blog from tuesday on bashing an OEM for not producing an update because another phone has one or you think they should have made one already. Samsung promised an update to FroYo, and they delivered. TouchWiz sucks, I’ll give you that, but thats an opinion we happen to share but necessarily a majority opinion. Even if everyone on this site took a vote and agreed that touchwiz sucked, we would still be a minority because the average phone user doesnt even know what touchwiz is and how it differs from any other Android phone. So if you actually read what I said, my opinion(key operative) was really clear. A vast majority of the people that buy phones, dont know about updates, dont understand how to update without step by step instructions, would never update if their device didnt prompt them for OTA updates or text them to manually update. Even when they do, most people dont understand the benefit or the difference or just plain out dont care enough to do them. As has been evidenced by my many encounters with Vibrant owners still running 2.1 while bloggers on this site were ready to storm Samsung headquarters or start a coup. Anyone on this site, tech savvy enough to distinguish the difference between FroYo and Eclair is clearly someone tech savvy enough to flash a rom over their phone or should be anyway. That’s my point. Fact is Nero V5 is way more stable and snappier than the Samsung update. Samsung has just started making smartphones and has handily taken over Android Sales from other OEMs because of their flashy phones and good hardware specs. They are however still new to this, and again understand, you dont build a project for the minority of bloggers on a site. You build them for the majority of mindless people that will buy the phone with the most GB’s or most wifis.

          ahh..your reference to “it’s not like anybody is updating their phones to gingerbread” sounded like no manufactures are updating, when in fact they are..basically meaning that updating is not a big deal. And you are right a good portion of android adopters are not very interested in updates, at least at first, but as they come into contact with people like us who have a deeper knowledge of the system and what it can do, then they start to wonder about updates. But in the end the only thing I am looking in a samsung unit is hardware specs and rooting it…that makes it a good purchase for me know. HTC seems to be a tad faster with updates and their UI is much more well laid out and more appealing in its stock form.
          If I am looking forward to the HTC pyramid (Atlas) and SG S 2, I probably will hold out for a it in an upgrade to see how they both fair in the rooting department and harware before buying it. For now my samsung vibrant is doing fine with root.

    if you read into the response, its says ” we’re not announcing anything today”, TODAY being the word to focuse on. There is no denial in that response. So technically there are not lying about the S2 coming (because there are not denying it) they’re just saying this person has no authority to announce anything!
    TODAY……

        It’s the French spelling of the word :-D I thought the same thing about the non-denial. Lets hope for the best.

    Just tell your customers what devices are or are not coming. Other carriers don’t play these kid ass games, let us know what is in the pipeline or many did I say many customers will leave for these new powerful devices. I think T-Mobile is the best carrier n the USA, fastest, affordable, good devices and their customer service is the best. We just want the best and newest devices available. We want to know ahead of time like the other carriers let their customers know.
    PLEASE T-MOBILE

    • Skpal

      Why would they do that? From a business standpoint that’s absolutely idiotic thing to do. Tell your customers that it won’t come out. So that they switch to another service provider? No one really knows if a phone will come out or not. Its more of a Samsungs decision than T-Mobiles. If Samsung wants to bring it to T-Mobile. They will be more than happy to have it in their phone lineup

      I agree, but I think they don’t wanna say anything because they want to clear out their Vibrant and Galaxy S 4G inventory first, before they release a phone 4 weeks later that is 4x better.

    Actually it is #1 & not a mistake. What they did is try to cover up the fact they released NDA info by accident. The Samsung Galaxy S 2 will be heading to all carriers soon.

      Well, not from what I hear…this was a mistake. Whether or not the phone will arrive but this actual tweet was misunderstood and in reference to the Galaxy S 4G.

  • thedieversion

    It CAN’T be #2 because the original Galaxy S 4G is already available for T-Mobile. Why would they say “pricing and availability to follow”, for an old phone that’s already been released?

  • Letcondor

    can anyone confirm that Galaxy S2 coming to T-Mobile. I went to to Tmobile store and they said they will not  be carryibg it. They said Sprint will. Now that is strange for a GSM phone on a Non GSM network.
