Samsung Galaxy S II Not Coming to Verizon

Bad news, folks. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Verizon will not carry the Samsung Galaxy S II. We had not seen hide nor hair of the Verizon model and we suspected that it might not ever get released. There was hope when the 4G LTE Celox made an appearance but it looks like that phone, at least for the time being, is not headed to Verizon.

This is obviously a huge blow to those of you who had been waiting for August 29th’s announcement to see what Samsung was going to release and where and it now puts even more focus on the upcoming Motorola Droid Bionic.

Galaxy S II

In addition to the Droid Bionic, Verizon is also rumored to be a carrier for the upcoming Google Nexus Prime and will also be stocked with the HTC Vigor so there is definitely some good stuff ahead.

But the Galaxy S II just won’t be a part of that future. So, if you want a Galaxy S II, you’re just going to have to head to AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile.

Who’s bummed?


  1. I personally couldn’t care less. But the mad howling over this is just too funny. It’s just a stinkin’ phone. Shrug.

  2. Of course Verizon doesn’t want the latest and greatest phone. It only took them years to get the iPhone. Verizon hates…Satisfying existing customers? I dunno there’s no reason for it chances are they are gonna just push the Bionic get the Nexus Prime a few months after other carriers and somehow outprice the Vigor or remove 4g. 

  3. I’m switching carriers and hope that others follow.  VZW could have managed customer expectations much better by making this announcment far in advance.  Instead they wait until only a few days before the press conference to make it known that they won’t be selling the Galaxy S2.  See ya Verizon!

  4. While I have been waiting for the s2 to land on Verizon I think this is actually great news. It pretty much confirms that Verizon will get the Nexus Prime in another month or two.

  5. I spoke to a verizon salesperson 5 days ago and he told me this phone would be available sometime next month along with the bionic… apparently he had no idea what he was talking about

  6. Should have done your homework folks! Samsung is a POS! Had no color fidelity. Made real world colors look other worldly / fairytaleish. Motorola. Bionic is the machine to beat in 1912 or 13 before the Bionic makes even another quantum leap ahead of the pack. Motorola Bionic’s radiation hardened electronics will continue to work for you when others become door stops. BEE HAPPY!
