AT&T taking its “sweet time” to release the Samsung Galaxy S II (Attain)

There were many rumors floating around in the Android community about today being the release date of AT&T’s variant of the Galaxy S II. Unfortunately, many people who have called or headed to their local AT&T stores, looking for it, have been sent back home with some not so “reassuring” answers about a possible launch date. I am not going to hide that I have also been waiting for this phone since May and that AT&T is kind of letting all of us down, especially because Sprint has already released their own version of the SGS 2 on September 16.

They don’t have them and they do not know when they are getting them.

AT&T sign up page for the Galaxy S II went live back on September 1, which led me to think that Ma Bell would announce a date sometime around the second week of this month. I have been following a discussion on Reddit about this matter and I can tell you that people aren’t really happy about how AT&T is handling this release. Rumors are suggesting that an issue with the phone may be the reason why we’re aren’t hearing anything about it.

In the meanwhile, if you have any info about the release date of the SGS 2, do not hesitate to share it with us.

    My local store told me to come back Sept 26 for it.

    • Thanks 🙂

      @020aec62da813a1a73db745228ada93d:disqus Mine said more like Oct-Nov.  I sure hope your store is right!  It’d be nice to at least have a ballpark (days, weeks, months).

    I hope there are more high quality android phones next year, so everyone doesnt have to wait for one phone to come out. I have been waiting since May too and my patience is wearing out.

    ATT store manager told me that as of October 1st 2011 grandfathered unlimited data customers will be throttled back after 5 gig…..  Sure sounds like the new sprint plan(s)…  they have already sent notices to “abusers” of data service notifying them of this

    other then the 20 or 30 dollars difference and perhaps signal at your areas of usage..  the att advantage has just slipped away… for the G s2  or any other data product

    Yet another fabulous move by ATT. Look how long it took to release the Thrill.

    I have jumped ship from ATT to Sprint. I am tired of being told “no
    release date yet” by ATT reps or them not even knowing what phone I’m
    talking about. To be honest, the family plan I have now from Sprint far
    exceeds what ATT can offer. On top of that, I got $250 credit for
    port-ins from ATT (available through Oct 1). Sprint actually seems to
    care about my $150/month business also!! Loving the Galaxy S II (Epic
    Touch 4 G) on my new Sprint package!!

    I am pretty sure its going to be released after Apple 5 launch is announced. Apple must have forced AtnT to do that, specially because Apple is confident people will drop their Galaxy S2 plans, once they know what IPhone 5 offers.
