AT&T 4G LTE Network

AT&T's 4G LTE network allows for quicker access, smoother media streaming, and faster web experiences. LTE technology is capable of delivering mobile broadband speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. Additionally, LTE technology offers a faster response time due to lower latency--the processing time it takes to move data through a network--vastly speeding download times for web pages as well as improving services such as mobile gaming and two-way video calling.



Packed with fun and productivity (view larger).

By the end of 2011, AT&T plans to launch its 4G LTE network in 15 major metropolitan areas, covering at least 70 million Americans. Coverage will continue to expand in the next few years and is planned to be largely complete by the end of 2013.

And when combined with 4G HSPA+ technology, AT&T is capable of delivering a quicker, more consistent mobile broadband experience than ever before. AT&T has deployed HSPA+ to virtually 100 percent of its mobile broadband network, which enables 4G speeds when combined with enhanced backhaul (via Ethernet or fiber). Backhaul is one of the major pieces of a telecommunications network. Think of it as the limbs connecting AT&T's cell towers with AT&T's backbone network that provides access to the Internet.

Tech Talk

LTE = Long Term Evolution
Advanced wireless technology capable of increasing AT&T's already-fast network speeds. Now in select markets with deployment ongoing.
HSPA+ = High Speed Packet Access
Paired with enhanced backhaul--the accelerated pipeline between our network backbone and cell towers across the country--this technology boosts network performance.

Optional AT&T Services

You'll be able to find the closes ATM, restaurant, gas station, Wi-Fi hotspot and more with over 10 million business listings.

AT&T FamilyMap: Locate any phone indoors or outdoors on the AT&T Network.

Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

The Samsung Galaxy S II Skyrocket 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 Galaxy S II Skyrocket 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.

Google Integration
  • Android Market for browsing and downloading thousands of free and paid apps
  • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube
  • Google applications: Gmail, Google Search, Google Voice Search, Google Latitude, Google Maps, Google Places, Google Talk
  • Google Maps Navigation with spoken turn-by-turn directions showing real-time traffic and 360° views of the destination

This Skyrocket has a fabulous and elegant feel to it. Its 1.5 GHz dual-core processor is super fast. The photo resolution and flash are excellent and very vivid. The Swype Keyboard is top notch and easy to learn and use. This phone has an internal 16GB and it has a microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB. Also, this phone can be used internationally; therefore, I recommend this Samsung to anyone interested in a high quality and multitasking android phone.

5.0 out of 5 stars 4 1/2 stars April 14, 2012
By Ro
My first smartphone was the Samsung Galaxy S (Captivate), then the Samsung Infuse, which was a faster, bigger Captivate, and now the SII Skyrocket, so you could say I've seen the evolution of Samsung's Android phones and software.

Let me start by saying this is an awesome phone. Amazing, even. When I compare it to my 1 year old Samsung Infuse, it blows it out of the water in every respect (except the screen, which I'll get to later).

UI - The UI on this phone is fantastic. I personally find Touchwiz to be a nice add on to Android. The notification bar switches are VERY useful, especially Wifi, rotation, and GPS. This phone has many added animations, which make everything look much smoother than stock Android. The new widgets like the Calendar and Photo Frame are very nice and add a lot to my home screens. The Phone/Messaging apps are some of the best I've seen. The camera is simpler than before, so easier to use. Overall the UI is a great improvement over stock Android 2.3 and also older versions of Touchwiz.

Screen - The screen is nice, but probably the weak point of the phone. At 800x480 on a 4.5" display, it can look grainy at times. However, I don't notice it that much in normal use. Also, the screen is blue tinted, which I found strange, since both my old Infuse and Captivate were Super AMOLED, but didn't have that issue. Otherwise, the display is excellent, with nice viewing angles, and extreme contrast.

Speed - Blisteringly fast, to be honest. When on Wifi, it can load most websites just seconds behind my Intel Quad-core desktop, which is saying quite a bit (full webpages).

4.0 out of 5 stars could not beat the price March 30, 2012
Owned it now for 20 days. got for $99 on Amazon wireless far below what AT&T wants for them.
WOW!!! nice phone

Big but thin, LOTS of memory, VERY FAST, dual cameras (1080P & 720P) with flash LED, BIG beautiful screen, not sure that higher resolution screen would even be noticeable.

THE BAD Battery issues! Turn off the bluetooth when you don't need it. Bluetooth kills the battery for some reason. I have had to pull the battery twice to get the bluetooth to function. This is annoying, and it is the phones fault I have three separate bluetooth devices and none of them would function until I pulled the battery.

AT&T visual voicemail app is annoying, turn off VVM audio notifications the minute you get your phone it plays the audio notification endlessly until you open the app.

It does not seem to have a charging regulator. the phone pops up a message when the battery is charged "unplug the charger" and then it starts to get warm, not hot, it was not the battery getting warm. Battery will charge in about 2 hours if it is off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great phone June 25, 2012
By Aerobu
I wanted to shift away from the iPhone and did not want to wait for the Galaxy S3. So the S2 seemed like the perfect choice. The screen is large, sleek, and beautiful. The phone is extremely light (mainly due to the plastic case that makes it seem cheap) and thin. The shape is smooth and fits wonderfully in my hand. As a person who is used to the iOS, the Android experience took a while to get used to but I really love it now. The user interface is a little better with the iOS but there are so many more things to do with the Android, starting with customizable live wallpapers and themes. The phone can be personalized to the nth degree unlike the iPhone and once you get used to using the Android OS, this becomes a piece of cake.

The device itself is extremely sturdy and resilient. I already dropped it a few times (on my carpet) and it has survived. The apps on the phone are brilliant. There is some bloatware which can be disabled although not completely uninstalled. This is not an issue since it doesn't take up resources at all. The display is way better than iOS Retina and the phone is several times faster. My favorite non-iOS feature is the Google Maps navigation. I was in Chicago for a visit and this feature was incredibly cool, fast, and convenient.

Overall, this is a fantastic phone and leagues better than the iPhone 4/4S. AT&T has also announced an upgrade to IceCream Sandwich OS and so, you could easily hold off on paying a big sum for the S3 and instead pay for this one.
