    Picked one up yesterday.  They had 6 at our Walmart.  The first two would not ring up, but the third one did and it is mine. Wonderful phone for the price (not to mention the great plans).

    No reviews from Phonedog on it yet? I saw one on another site and they seem to think of it pretty nicely (considering it’s a prepaid phone). It’s just they didn’t seem to go into much detail. It seemed more like an impression then a review.

      Phonearena has a pretty decent in depth review

        That was the “other” site I was referring to. It’s not really in depth. It feels more like a hands on vs an actual review.

    Looks nice!!!

    I am having major issues with this phone and anyone considering buying it should to! First of all this phone has to be the biggest “bait n switch”, I’ve seen in a while. The original specs were this phone was essentially a Galaxy W for the US,since It’s debut was in the UK first. If you may recall or research, it was SUPPOSED to be a 1.4 processor, 5mp camera with hd 720p video capture! Sounded good until some IDIOT decided to rip what was to basically nothing! Here are the fact’s, the original Exhibit @ 3.5in screen was better than this so called upgrade. It has a screen ppi of 266 the same as the Sidekick 4g. Not Amoled or Super, but sharper than the “imposters 3.7inch, 252 ppi! One could argue that 252 is still good for the slight increase in screen size, but I’ve owned and exhibit one and just saw the new one and one is simply sharper even for a TFT screen type. If you like watching videos this will matter! The batteries are the same size in both, at 1500mah.Still looking for the change, well here’s one, They decided that since they changed the processor, and camera and screen, why not REDUCE the video capture to a sweet 640×480!! Wow…that would be great if it was 2007! AGAIN I had Exhibit one and even it had a better capture at 720×480, or DVD quality. Besides the 3.7 in screen they threw in a slimmed down version of Touchwiz 4.0. This phone was obviously thrown into the marketing scheme for the new rate plans @ Wal mart, but even that part stinks to…Say you have an existing sim and like the phone well enough to just buy it…The $199 off contract grab n go deal is only welcome @ Wal mart. Yet as we speak the phone has $249.99 in the T mo store for off contract and online it shows a price of 329.99….Same phone three prices! I hope this will help someone out there because this phone should have been scrapped or left at the original Galaxy W specs. Even more odd the new LG mytouch handsets are coming out of the box with the same 42.2mbps range of the Amaze and Gs2, for only 279$ each, but the new Radar is only capable of the old 14.1mbps range. I know it’s about the processor but why not offer the higher range on the higher phone by default??

      if they stuck with the normal specs of the Galaxy W the phone would cost $399, this pretty much steals the crown for every $150 to $200 phone like the LG Optimus T that only packs a 600mhz ARM6(no flash) cpu with a 320×480 3.2 screen on 3G because this baby packs a 1ghz ARM7(flash capable) cpu with 800×480 on a 3.7 screen with 4G, the price for the specs match perfectly for those who want a bit of a higher end android to start with or to even have as a backup phone(like myself) than the typical offerings of low to mid level range at the under $200 price point, i sold my Optimus T which is my current secondary phone for $150 to get this baby but il wait until black friday this also packs the 1900/850 bands so using 4g on another network is fairly possible

    Its all good in da hood as long as I make my sells and right fit our customers. I think the exhibit ll would be a perfect fit for first time android users

      The Ex2 is a great phone even for experienced Android users like myself. I really like this phone.

    For some reason, the Tmobile website is listing the Exhibit 2 on the Prepaid site as 249.99 without a contract.  There is on sign of any rebate.  I even tried putting it into a shopping cart and its billing me 249.99.  Can T-mobile not follow through on anything?   At least Walmart is selling it for the press release price.   I wish David from this website or anyone who is a reporter would contact Tmobile and find out what’s going on.  This just seems so unfair

    Also can someone clarify something for me as I was looking to buy this on Amazon (which also has it at the listed 199.99 price) and it said it has wifi calling but that even if you use wifi you are still deducted minutes. I thought the whole purpose of having wifi on  your phone was that if your phone connected to a wifi , your calls and data would be free and not deducted from your bucket…Is that not how it works?  (Does the phone a automatically recognize wifi ?(

      I’ll look into it tomorrow and see if I can’t get some clarification on the price.
