Damn it! NOOOOOOOO.

Is that almost confirmed?

Why am I complaining? I expected $350 or more.

Screw both at&t and verizon imo. I get unlimited everything (read: no 2gb cap) for $30 a month as part of a shared plan, and the last dropped call I had was over 4 months ago with sprint. Verizon and at&t can't even come close to touching any of that.

Probably both, AT&T never differentiate pricing for upgrades or new customers. Now thats not to say 3rd parties pricing though.

Speaking of ****ty GPS on Galaxy phones... I downloaded the new car home and desk home apps from Samsung. Result: Somehow it completely borked Google Maps from working with the GPS. At least it was working before I installed those. If it wasn't so ****ty I would laugh.

Are you using a stock ROM on your phone? You should try a custom ROM if you are not using one...

Custom roms still can't fix how aweful the gps is in the Galaxy S phones... In my store the iPhone 4 gets a perfect lock while the Galaxy S is two blocks away...

Nice phone...Just a shame that it comes with 2.2 instead of Gingerbread.
