    How do you get the Samsung Gs2 t989 to vibrate on receiving text messages? Even though I've set notifications to sound and vibrate, it won't. I do know that this is possible because I've done it once but I've forgotten how to. Respond please!

    That is a really well written, well produced review. Your voice is excellent; have you any experience voice acting? Anyway, I bought this phone but I'm waiting for delivery… I can't get enough!

    Hey, I just wanna know if i buy this phone unlocked if il be able to use it with all it's features which whatever sim card i get from my data service provider. Tried ordering this phone from a site and they told me that since the phone is unlocked, i wont be able to browse.. I've never had a problem with unlocked phones before however I'm just curious as to whether this is the case or that site in particular has disabled the browser settings..

    Thanks in advance for your assistance

    Thanks PaxPsych0sis,

    I'm glad you like the device. I actually BOUGHT the unit and it's my primary phone. (My secondary is a Windows Phone) — As for me and my faith… if you can't laugh at your own beliefs once in a while, they're not really beliefs you want to keep. 🙂

    I LOVE how you used nick swardsons pretend time "gay robot" skit to show video playback! LOLOL thank you for being human, unlike other faiths *cough* Christians *cough* .
    Also I the look on your face was priceless when you introduced the device! I had a good chuckle. Great review! thank you. I bought the t-mobile version because of the increased specs, and had it unlocked. My favorite device to date! I'm the kind of guy that buys a new phone every 2 months, this one is a keeper, for a while lol
