T-Mobile Not Among Leaked Galaxy S 2 Carrier Branding?

A story making some waves this morning through the T-Mobile community comes courtesy of Pocketnow who uncovered the carrier branded names of the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon editions of the Galaxy S 2. T-Mobile was notably absent from the list of acquired carrier names and an immediate assumption was made that T-Mobile might not be carrying the Galaxy S 2. We feel compelled to remind people that there were multiple editions of the original Galaxy S on US carriers. Therefore this accessory leak could indicate that T-Mobile ordered a revamped version of the Galaxy S 2 and that’s why it isn’t listed as able to fit this Silicone Gel.

We also know that the Galaxy S 2 has popped up both in the hands of someone with a device as well as a leaked screenshot courtesy of Adobe.com showing a T-Mobile Galaxy S 2 edition. Neither of those things make for solid information that the Galaxy S 2 is coming but it certainly gives us reason to believe it’s possible. At this moment I’d urge a little caution before subscribing to the belief that this accessory page confirms a T-Mobile version doesn’t exist. Let’s just wait and see shall we?

     I would rather have the sensation anyways.

    • whosaidwhat

       Choice is good and since you want the Sensation, you win but others like myself might want something different.

    I dont see why tmo wouldnt get the gs2. TMO not getting it would go against the original gs marketing strategy (all carriers selling the device). The case pictured above means nothing. Each carrier branded original gs was different. Sprints had a slideout kb & atts captivate was noticably different than tmos vibrant and the vzw fascinate.

    Well, this will suck big time if true. And for the Samsung haters, this phone is different and beats the heck out of any other phone out there.

       Samsung haters will hate regardless.  Like you said this phone is different and when an Apple fanboyistic site like Engadget says “It’s the best Android smartphone yet, but more importantly, it might well be the best smartphone, period.” http://www.engadget.com/2011/04/28/samsung-galaxy-s-ii-review/ it deserves some respect.

    “T-Mobile MyTouch Galaxy S II”   Nooooooooooooo!  LOL

    I’m glad you put this up David and I hope everyone remains optimistic about it’s arrival.  The only bad part is that we can expect T-Mobile to make physical changes to the phone which IMO does NOT help sales in any way.

    • ColdFeet

      Unfortunately, you’re probably right. I wouldn’t be surprised if they have different casing because they took off the flash.

         Maybe T-Mobile’s version will be called Vibrant 2.

  • Mattmjb0188

     It makes sense.  T-Mobile wasn’t gonna get the Sensation and the SGS2.  It was one or the other and I’m glad they got the Sensation.  HTC FOR LIFE.

      why not? Tmobile has the best over all line up of android phones in the industry.

      Last go around Tmobile had the least modifed version of the GalaxyS.  Maybe that remains true and the other 3 carriers wanted a more modified version with carrier crap all over it.  If i had a guess, Tmobile would get the one closest to the OEM version software wise, but it will probably look like the vibrant with the 4 capacitive buttons instead of the big fat middle button.

       Load of crap.  T-Mobile is selling the Vibrant still right with the Galaxy S 4G which makes MUCH less sense than selling these two new completely different superphones phones.  After all I’m sure T-Mobile knows there are brand loyal customers.

      • Anonymous

         Oh no doubt.  I’m just contradicting @15bdeda938fdcbd70da86dc1c54bba59:disqus comment because he feels TMO wouldnt carry both of these similar yet completely different superphones.  

        I’m sure they will stop carrying the Vibrator soon enough.

        • Anonymous

          Why wouldn’t they carry both of them ? They’re already carrying the LG G2X and they’re adding the Sensation. Why couldn’t they carry the SGS2 as well ? That’s silly, of course they’ll carry the SGS2. What remains to be seen is in what form.

    • Anonymous

      That doesn’t make sense. Samsung wants to be on every carrier possible and in as many pockets as possible as well. T-Mo will still get a Galaxy S 2 device it just hasn’t been leaked yet. Maybe it will have a slightly different form factor which is why this accessory isn’t compatible with it.

        This is the attitude that’s killing tmo. If we say who cares every time someone leaves, tmo will only have die hard fans as customers. You might not care but t-mobile does and them losing customers means losing money and the ability to innovate and improve on their services.

        • Anonymous

          This is not the attittude killing tmo, I have ATT and tmo, if one of my friends says “if ATT doesn’t get a stock android dual core device I’ll be porting out” and I say who cares… Does that hurt ATT? No… This is a forum full of people of their own opinion, quite frankly if someone is dumb enough to port carriers for something as fickle as a handset then the correct response in my book is who cares. I feel like people that do that were just waiting on an excuse to leave anyway. Like people complain about their bill being too high then threaten to port out and get an iPhone. Foolishness…

        • whosaidwhat

          “This is not the attittude killing tmo, I have ATT and tmo, if one of my
          friends says “if ATT doesn’t get a stock android dual core device I’ll

          That’s a big fat YES! Instead of telling your friend the strengths of ATT you are telling them to leave. By them leaving, ATT loses a customer (almost half a million customers for T-mobile in the first 3 months). How does that help us?

          My point is really simple. The more people that leave or stay away from T-mobile, the worst the company will get. If you don’t agree with that then, Okay.

        • Anonymous

          No, me saying who cares and me telling them to leave are two different things. While the second part of your argument makes sense, the first part is a “one person can change the world” mentality. T-Mobile’s horrid upper management from 2006-2010 is to blame for their demise. You want to point the blame at someone? Point it at Robert Dotson, Sue Nokes, Paula Lentini and Denny Post(especially her) for being terrible at their jobs. People acknowledge how terrible ATT is and still flock there in droves to get iPhones. No matter how many amazing Android devices there are, it will never reach the iconic status of an iPhone simply because there are so many but the iPhone is one, easy to use device that transcends age or intelligence quite frankly. Tmo not carrying it was the beginning of the end, it didn’t help that they were a “value carrier” with national carriers and regional carriers besting them in price either. So don’t blame the indifferent customer, blame the idiots at the top, who ran a great company into the gutter.

        • whosaidwhat

          “While the second part of your argument makes sense, the first part is a “one person can change the world” mentality.”

          Let’s take this argument a little further then I’ll let it go since you’re convinced one person leaving wouldn’t make a difference. I leave t-mobile because I’m not happy about their services, customer service or phone selection. When my mom, friend or co-worker is asking about what phone I have and how good or bad the service is, will I tell them to go to the carrier I just left? No. That means, not only have I left, but I just prevented T-mobile from gaining a potential customer or two.

          The point you make about ATT is perfect and I’ll tell you why. They had an exclusive deal on the iphone and they knew people wanted the phone. They decided not to work extra hard on their customer service or innovate on better 4G technology. Now that they’ve lost that exclusivity, people will be more than happy to move to Verizon for the iphone and avoid dealing with their crappy service and slow network. It’s no secret that they are working very hard to release super cool Android phones now that they don’t have iphone to themselves.

          Sprint nailed a very important phone (the EVO) a year or so ago that made them relevant again. Having the exclusive deal on that phone helped them gain new customers. T-mobile on the other hand hasn’t nailed an exclusive deal on a phone that people go “wow!, I’ve got to have it.” And don’t get me wrong they probably have the best overall lineup of Android phones. It doesn’t help that their marketing department sucks too.

          Imagine if they were able to get the SGS2 exclusively in the US. Think about this for a second. Knowing that the die hard apple fans are all over this phone. I can bet everything I have that T-mobile with such exclusive device will gain considerable amount of customers in the next quarter, even with the ATT deal still lingering.

          So, back to the argument again, yes, I believe one person can make a difference because just in my family alone, if I tell them to stay away from ATT or T-mobile for whatever reason, they might actually believe me. Remember word of mouth is the cheapest and most effective advertisement ever.

          I got two sentences into your response before I realized you did not thoroughly read my comment, so all of your reply is irrelevant. The “one person changing the world” is not the customer leaving, it’s me who doesn’t care to stop him. Also, any notion that would draw a comparison to total customer base would imply ALL customers were trying to leave ALL the time which is again false. Sooooo…. Next?

        • Anonymous

          So I actually went through and read what you wrote, while it’s clear that you’re speaking intelligently I have to call out a few things you said.

          -the iPhone effect has not been as great as people thought it would, the numbers have been reportedly underwhelming but I myself can attest to it because I was also a customer waiting for Verizon to get the iPhone to take my 3 lines there and leave, but you know what? I didn’t? Want to know why? While Verizon’s 4G network is impressive compared to ATTs crappy nowhere you are HSPA+ network, the iPhone they released was somewhat dated at release, so I sign a 2 year contract for the same phone I already have? With no upgrades at all? Meh… LTE destroys batteries so until they can figure that out I doubt the next iPhone will have LTE anyway. Meaning even the next one wont bring them that drove of customers they were banking on. So by the time they actually do get an LTE iPhone you know who else will have them? ATT.

          As far as the one person, again I think you misinterpreted who the one person was, but clearly people in your family know you know what you’re talking about when it comes to technology and phones. Can the same be said for 95% of people? Absolutely not. If an idiot friend of mine as stated was fickle enough to change carriers over a phone it’s definitely NOT someone who would keep me from a carrier. Also, people formulate opinions based upon experience regardless. So if someone from my family ports out of tmo, I wont take my 5 lines with them, that was THEIR experience, MINE has been great. So your argument I feel assumes that people actually know what they’re talking about. When in fact, it’s usually exactly the opposite.

          I would like to say that I appreciate how well you argued your point, was compelling enough to make me respond quickly, now I’m running late for class…

          @whosaidwhat:twitter : I think most of the folks who’re saying “who cares” are people who really don’t care. And since they don’t, that pretty much makes THEIR opinion innocuous. That means “worthless”, for those who’re not willing to be bothered by looking it up.
          Look at the comments left and the polls numbers about this whole AT&T&T debacle. Overwhelmingly the numbers decry that there is a supportive customer base, and it’s TMo themselves who’ve dropped the ball, despite continuously having been handed it by circumstance. TMo Deutsche has hampered TMo USA by it’s ineffectual management, and yet they want to blame the lack of growth in the subscriber base as solely TMo USA’s management. Notice that in Europe, TMo got the REAL ( IMHO ) Samsung Galaxy S ( and now S2 ), while the US SUB-sidiary chose the watered down model. What ? Did they think no one here would be interested in it ?

          So ignore Cchrono and any others who “liked” that inane comment. If the man wants to vent and he’s not trolling, then move along.

        The way that T-Mo likes to put full featured movies on their Galaxy-S’s, this might not be too far of a stretch.  I just hope that 1) T-Mo gets the SGS2, and 2) That if we do get it, that it’s not a watered down version (as in no flash for example).

          Yes, let’s hope we get the “watered UP” version, as Sprint did last time with the Epic 4G! (well, IMO Sprint got the best version of the Galaxy S line last time.) =o)

        • Anonymous

          Absolutely not, they got dealt the worst hand next to ATT… The Epic is hideous looking, the keyboard killed the thin factor and WiMax is hardly 4G. Also their version took longest to update and didn’t have even close to the XDA support the Vibrant had. IMO Vibrant, Fascinate, Epic, Captivate… On an unrelated note though, the Infuse 4G’s only vice might be it not being dual core. I checked it out yesterday, the speeds were better than I’ve ever seen on an ATT phone and from the screen to design its simply beautiful… Not worth switching carriers, but it does change my opinion about 4.5″ screen being too big. I’m 6’1″ the phone fit me perfectly.

        • michael

           I like it.. when it’s closed it looks like a sexy galaxy s on the front. And Gingerbread is in testing for it. 4G support alone (not debating networks..) is good. A keyboard, flash, front facing camera, and 4G honestly make it the best Galaxy S

          For once, pimpy…I agree with you. Let’s hope. They have to recognize the Vibrant could’ve sold better if it had had a FFC and a flash….look at the Galaxy S 4G  ….why hasn’t it sold much better….they might’ve added an FFC, but still left out the flash. Fail.

      Please define “slightly different than the original” ? Does it leave the flash in place ? Did they remove any feature from the original design of the phone ?

       Well that’s consistent with what I said three months ago, that the SGS2 would be T-Mobile’s summer release, the phone to debut in July, just as the Samsung Galaxy S did.

    My guess is that they might name it simply “galaxy S 2″or galaxy S 2 4g”. Since tmobile had already released the galaxy s 4g.
    But I hope that it DOESN’T have a physical keyboard. It worlds totally kill the thinness and sexiness of the device. It would be a deal baker for me.

    Who cares. T-Mobile should pass on this plastic piece of garbage. TouchWiz is pure poop

    • CactusCat

      Who died and made you the master of opinions? I personally think TouchWiz is just fine. And before you respond, I want you to know that I own a Nexus One (pure stock) and an LG G2X (stock). So don’t tell me I don’t know what I’m talking about. Pure stock is ok… but its pretty boring to me after all this time. You should use TouchWiz for a while, you’ll sing a different tune. And lastly, this new Sammy phone has TouchWiz 4, a different version than before.. Many ppl are singing its worthiness….so I suggest you hold your comments until you are better informed. Read some reviews.

      • Anonymous

        Great. I’m happy for you. I think touchwiz is utter crap. Why do I think this? Because I’ve used it. My coworker has an gs2. I’ve had a lot of hands on time with it. And I still find it terrible. I have a nexus one, nexus s and a g2x. I’m a huge fan of pure android. But I also don’t mind different UI’s. Like sense, sense is much better than touchwiz and this new version of sense is 10 times better than the newest touchwiz. I don’t comment and give opinions on things that I am not very informed on. And in this case I can say that touchwiz sucks. I’ve used it, have you?

        • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1586820069 steadymobb

          I have, it’s not the greatest, but I feel the same way about Sense and Blur, had the g2x because of stock but ended up returning it after going through 3 phones and decided to go with the gs2… if it ever comes out…I feel like touchwiz is the least battery consuming out of the three main customized UIs

        • CactusCat

          Yes, my phone after the Nexus One was my Galaxy Vibrant, so I know all about Touchwiz (I got my G2X just a few days ago). I have TONS more experience with TouchWiz than you, so again, you fail in your assessment of it. Your co-worker’s phone (so you’ve had a lot of hands on time with it??) is nothing but a pure crap statement. You’ve played with it a few times and you’ve decided you didn’t like it (I’m sure your mind was made up before you even tried it, based on other things you might have read). It’s all a matter of user preference, so my opinion counts just as much as yours. I think Sense is ok but its not as intuitive as Touchwiz. And I’ve used Sense on plenty of phones. I’ve setup HTC Evo’s for an entire company, so I know the interface well. Even my grandson has an HTC with Sense. It’s ok, but I like TouchWiz better. That’s why they makes Fords and Chevys. People like different things.  Instead of you saying something is utter crap as if your opinion was the final word on anything, try stating you don’t care for the interface or that you prefer something else. All you did for me was to step on my toes. I immediately counted your opinion as useless. And my final question to you is this: if your co-worker has a GS2, where do you live as they aren’t available in very many places. Certainly not here in the USA.

          Don’t go making asssumptions. I’ve had more of an indepth look and plenty of time on the galaxy s 2 than just a few times. And I’m sure you have had more time with the crap that is touchwiz than myself. I mean that makes perfect sense since I’ve given it a chance more than I’d like to admit and have been disappointed and burned to the point where i won’t ever use it again. Sorry you don’t like my opinions but touchwiz is garbage. I’m in the USA btw and he bought it on eBay for some insane amount of money. You said it, it’s user preference and this user thinks that touchwiz SUCKS. its been updated since but it’s still a crappy Ui that Samsung should ditch and start over with something else. I don’t care if you think my opinion is useless. You seem to have got your panties in a twist because you don’t like a USERS opinion. Cry about it some more.

          And here’s what the new TouchWiz is really about. Neither Sense, nor pure stock, can do many of these things now available in the newest verison of TouchWiz. Watch the video… then make your comments:

     With the huge following this phone is receiving I would be shocked if it doesn’t show on T-mobile regardless of the recent Galaxy s 4G launch. Samsung has done their due diligence on Touchwiz, but nothing will beat stock android. Btw, they might as well create a GSM version that works on TMO and ATT but is carrier locked until the acquisitions complete.

  • Anonymous

     I would be shocked if this phone doesnt appear on TMO. Quite a bit of money to be made on this device and the Sensation. Why not just create a GSM version that is carrier locked, but will work on both TMO and ATT when the acquisition goes through (because it will). :(

    Not interested, so it’s ok if it doesn’t come to t-mobile.

      Did you see anywhere that this was a poll, who is getting the phone, who is not? 

      Sidenote, are people that deluded to think that anyone cares which phone they will buy or not buy.

      Internet to Petey… no one cares that YOU are not interested in the SGS2.

      What a complete waste of space.  Go threadcrap somewhere else.

      • Petey

        Oh really? Seems like you cared cus you took the time & effort to reply back to me. I appreciate you cared about my comment.

        This is a blog where everyone can post their opinion. If you’re not happy with someone’s opinion. Learn to ignore it and move on. Don’t be telling people what to do or what not to do. No need to get butt hurt about my comment or anybody else.

         Was that reply really necessary?

  • Ransackfester

    It would be cool if tmos version came with a slide out qwerty and was called the sidekick pro lol

  • michael

     Its just because the carriers here are all “exclusive” and GSM, CDMA, etc. Everyone wants their own version, optimized for their network and marketing ideals.

    • Anonymous

       ”Optimized” – read bloatware. Its a real shame. In a country of 300 million+ that has an almost entirely consumer driven economy, you would expect the consumer to have a little more say in what it gets. Rather than being spoonfed whatever pap the telcoms want to shovel out.

      On a personal note I am hoping that the reason the back showed up only for those three phones is that tmobile made so few changes they didnt feel the need to get a new back made. Just use the standard S2 one :)

    I suspect you are correct, T-Mobile ordered a different version, just as all the carriers had Samsung Galaxy S made to order.

    All it takes is a slightly different configuration to make the phone entirely different when it comes to accessories.

    To be sure, since Samsung has set 2011 to become the #1 highest handset manufacturer in the world it does make sense to leave T-Mobile out of the mix.

  • Factor

    Well with this news breaking, I hope T-Mobile will give some kind of cofirmation if theyre getting this phone. This thing will be a big seller and I guarantee people will leave and go to other carriers to get it

    The Galaxy S Vibrant was a huge success. The same thing happened with the Galaxy Tab. T-Mobile was the last carrier to be known as carrying the Galaxy Tab.. Sprint/VZ/AT&Trash we all had knowledge of first.

    Hoppeful tmobile hasn’t got one coustomed built. I want the exact same one as the european just with the nfc attached.

  • Senpai_tsunade

    Please not with a slide out keyboard.. they can get rid of the middle hard button, it’s ok but no keyboard please.. oh wait is it really coming to TMobile? Let’s hope so..

  • Melissaj21

    O cmon all of u T-Mobile people dnt be greedy let us people on at&t, Verizon and sprint have some of the good stuff too. U guys bitch too much and want everything on T-Mobile only. What more do u guys want? U guys are already getting ur htc sensation and u got ur crappy g2x. So aren’t u happy with that? O wait I forgot the Samsung galaxy s2 is considered the most advanced phone up too now and u guys are not getting it now i know why u guys are mad cud it be cuz of that? Yea I think it is hopefully (crossing fingers ) T-Mobile doesn’t get it. Cuz its our turn to get awesome phones on att, Verizon and sprint. U guys already have ur g2x and are getting ur sensation. So stick with that and quit ur bitching.

      Sprint has the Evo
      At&t has the iPhone
      Verizon has the Droid line up & iPhone
       
      how is tmobile being greedy ?
      Tmobile’s time to shine :D

    • Whitegurl77

      Yea Melissa u tell em girlfriend, I have T-Mobile right now a vibrant and so far T-Mobile has not took out a phone that has made me go wow I want that phone. I dnt have a problem with T-Mobile service over here in La but if T-Mobile doesn’t get this phone or gets a modified version of it and they water it down I’m willing to switch to at&t or Verizon not sprint cuz I had it and it sucks to get this awesome phone. Cuz I saw a video of it on phonearena and it made me go wow I want this phone that freakin s2 is a freaking powerhouse it plays 1080hd videos straight out from the browser with flash player no other phone does that. So yea but hey that’s just me I know a lot of people will critisize me idgaf.

      you guys have everything. All we have is a g2x with light leakage problems and a crappy ns with no micro sd support. Lets see, infuse 4g,  inspire, SGS2, iphone (no one here really cares about that)…. we have a right to complain

    • Flickshake

      geeze, what a bitch

  • Oce

    Whoah!!!! I wasn’t aware that it had a kickstand!  Is this a typo? 

  • Mail

    heard from samsung rep, tmobile is not getting the galaxy 2.

  • Weasel

     So the screwing of t-mo users begins… :-|

    I have a Nexus S and have been eagerly awaiting the GS2… This is all sortsa bad signs for upcoming releases. 

  • Anonymous

    I wish Google will make it Nexus S 2 and put in T-Mobile band support.

  • ALOHA

    HTC SENSATION !

  • Ghoff15

    It doesn’t make sense that t-mobile wouldn’t get this phone, we have the galaxy s the galaxy s 4g the galaxy s 2 would be next, if t-mobile doesn’t get this phone I will say f@&( it and buy me an iphone on Verizon.

  • Polaris1

    I’m sure Tmo will get it’s own version of the SGS2. What I’m really hoping for is that the next Nexus device comes to Tmo. Truth is T mo deserves it since we are the original Android carrier and the only one to offer “pure” vanilla android devices 

  • Albert

    I’ve been waiting since nov. For a superphone like this and if tmo doesn’t get it, hello att.

    • http://twitter.com/anjiecai anjiecai

      tmo’s getting some version of this. waiting for NEXUS 3 YEAHHH
