T-Mobile's Super-Fast 4G Mobile Broadband Network

As of October, 2011, T-Mobile's 4G (HSPA+ 21) network is available in over 190 major metropolitan areas across the U.S.--covering 200 million people across the country. Network upgrades will continue rolling out through 2012.

With typical download speeds that are on par with or faster than competing 4G technologies, T-Mobile's HSPA+ network provides fast data speeds, while allowing simultaneous voice and data capabilities for the ultimate wireless voice and data experience. You'll enjoy faster Web browsing, uninterrupted video streaming, and quicker app downloads.

T-Mobile's 4G mobile broadband network (powered by HSPA+) provides a theoretical capability of up to 21 Mbps peak download speeds, with average download speeds typically in the 5 to 8 Mbps range.

T-Mobile Wi-Fi Calling Service

Effortlessly transition between Wi-Fi calling and T-Mobile's wireless network while you talk with T-Mobile's innovative Wi-Fi Calling technology. Wi-Fi Calling is a free feature for this phone, and minutes used while connected to the Wi-Fi network count against available rate plan minutes.

Powered by Kineto's Smart Wi-Fi Application, T-Mobile's Wi-Fi Calling for Android smartphones is ready to use out-of-the-box, providing the ability to make voice calls and send SMS from accessible Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n) access points across the globe in addition to the connectivity available through T-Mobile's mobile network. The application also includes a tutorial for first-time users.

Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Samsung Exhibit II runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.

Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.

The onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.

The Exhibit II also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tmo admits phone has 'known issues' May 2, 2012
A warning to everyone considering this phone. Look at the Tmobile forums first. Tmobile admits this phone has many 'known issues' but this hasn't been publicized. It seems that a percentage of them are defective but TMobile refuses to fix the problems or give customers an alternate working phone. So whether you got it for free or paid 199 or 350, you may be sorely disappointed. Many customers can't even send an SMS on 4G...Tmobiles fix for t his is to tell people to turn off that 4G network they're paying for (and advertising the heck out of ) and switch to Edge every time they want to send a text. This apparently is happening on some other devices. The other major known issue is freezing...At first, Tmobile will blame you but after you reset the phone a dozen times or send it to Samsung for repair, you'll see that the problems don't go away. Theres also power cycling and the phone mysteriously turning off at random times. These problems seem to only affect certain handsets as some people seem to have no problems and others have a nightmare experience. The main thing is Tmobile acknowledges them but is doing nothing. "Theres nothing we can do...Maybe you should switch carriers" Since Nov 2011, they've been claiming they're working with Samsung on a fix but there hasn't been a single software update and if you contact Samsung, you're told they have no record of any issues and they blame Tmobile --- esp for the text problems but even for the daily freezing. Tmobile needs to fix this or provide customers with an alternate working phone...but they refuse --- thats evidence of the decline in their customer service.

As for other issues, the camera isn't very good and the screen is very hard to see in daylight.

I purchased this phone at a T-Mobile retail location for $329.99 with a 2-Year contract. All I got for the contract was to pay for the phone in 20 monthly payments interest free with $29.99 down. Wow, what a mistake that was.

Within a couple weeks the phone was overheating and freezing/shutting down a few times a day. It was related to the battery and the only way to get the phone back up was to put it on the charger until it reached "full charge." This would take 30 minutes, or hours, depending on how low the battery was when it froze. I took it back to the store and asked for a different phone, the response was "sorry, you're past your 14-day "buyer's remorse" period but you can send it in for a replacement under warranty of the same model, so that's what I did.

The second phone didn't have the overheating problem, but had an issue with SMS/text messaging. Text messages were failing, or just showing a "failed" message with some going through (unknown to me). This was also an issue with the first phone. I contacted T-Mobile tech support and they said it was a "known problem" and they were "working" with Samsung to fix the issue. I tried multiple recommended solutions such as trying to text in GSM only mode, clearing the cache, and eventually resetting the phone to factory defaults (all a total waste of my time). Nothing worked.

After a few more calls to customer service and tech support I asked for an alternate replacement phone and they said no, I would have to wait until the issue was fixed. I asked if I would have to pay my bill in the meantime, and they said yes, of course. I then demanded to be let out of my contract since they were not providing the services I was paying for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good phone February 17, 2013
I have had this phone for several months now, and many of the "problem" comments posted here seem unrelated to my phone. Neither have I had problems with T- Mobile. My email rolls in like clockwork, I am able to access the web at almost any time. Nor have I had any battery issues. The battery power does not last like my previous Samsung 3G phone did, but since I recharge it every night, it's not a problem. An a shorter battery power span should be expected for the phones size, and capability. I would have liked for it to be "galaxy" sized, but I had that choice and went with this Exhibit II. Happy with the choice. Particularly having been a 3G Cricket customer, this experience is "light years" better

1.0 out of 5 stars Worst. Phone. Ever. April 30, 2013
By Carrie
My husband and I have each had this phone for just under 2 years. We've been eagerly awaiting the day we could drop T-Mobile (and this terrible phone) for about a year and a half. A few of the problems we've had:

* Occasionally it will force close the "text message" "dial" and "contact" screens back out to the home area at random times. Once it starts happening, it will continue to do so until a full restart of the phone.
* Randomly disconnects the data service, making all webpages/facebook/email unavailable until you figure out the problem and re-check the box.
* 2 out of 3 of the phones my husband has had (same model as it's all that was covered under warranty) won't connect to wifi (although mine will).
* GPS consistently locks up mid-route.
* With nothing else running, normal applications like Angry Birds or Facebook will start lagging to the point where we have to force close the phone.
* Phone will randomly power off for no reason.
* Phone will force close applications constantly.
* Screen Lock will sometimes lock completely, forcing a hard restart of the phone.

Add to that the spotty reception from T-Mobile, and you have a crappy phone with crappy reception. All in all... terrible.
