cokeman2: same result here when i was in town it was registering on the 2100mhz soon as i got into 850mhz zone reception fell off even thou i ve got one or 2 bars showing....

it wont work :(

looking for a xt galaxy as well wander if the online sellers will get a unlocked one or do we all have to go threw telecom?

not to mention have to sell this one now :(


The i9000t is pretty hard to come by, when I was buying mine they said they only had 5 nationwide and they've been sold out since then. Haven't seen any at retailers.

EDIT: I'm talking about Telecom.

my brother is involved with ordering business phones through genesis (which is telecom's business end) and there is a huge wait on galaxy s for xt. There are a lot of phones that have already been ordered by business people and they have been waiting several months. Not sure how this equates to personal phone sales, however I would recommend you try to order an XT compatible i9000 from overseas.

Also I'm surprised the price hasn't droped much for this phone, I would expect it to drop in price soon, maybe in 1 month it'll be $200 cheaper.

Must be an overall shortage of I9000Ts. The mobicity site is out of stock for the 850/2100 and I wonder if they actually get their stock from Telstra directly rather than Samsung.

Folks...

This is a gigantic thread. It's quite hard to search and I doubt anyone would now read the 280 pages (and counting).

I suggest we lock this discussion and you start threads for specific discussions, perhaps adding a [Galaxy S] tag to the beginning of the subject in those new threads?

supply < demand, when i was listening to some people chatting about it there was no ETA mentioned. He was lucky to get around a dozen XT Galaxys as a favour, but that was quite some time ago.

The guy he spoke to blamed samsung for the hold up (Can't supply / manufacture enough units), but it might also have to do with getting the telcom firmware onto the galaxy.  PS. this comment is gossip/chinese whispers and may be incorrect as i don't want to get any one in trouble.

With all due respect, any difficulty in searching this thread is more to do with the deficiencies of the forum software Geekzone use; the Doc's Rom thread on XDA is 3253 pages and counting, and I never have any trouble finding information on it, or any other vBulletin-driven site for that matter.

IMO, starting individual threads only makes it harder, as there's invariably cross-over from one topic to another (GPS issues become Modem issues etc).

My 2c worth anyway. . . . .

I concur.

People with questions will have more chance of having them answered in this active thread, than a new thread that gets locked after 30 days due to lack of attention.

I also agree. Let's not fork threads for the sake of doing so. I and no doubt countless others are still reading this thread no doubt from the first post til now.

cokeman2: as for starting another galaxy s thread , make separate section for the galaxy s in android with sub topics in it


Some handset models have a very short shelf life. If we were to create subsections for different models we would end up with dozens of ghost sections after a while.

cokeman2: ....however the admins made a popcorn media player thread i requested about a year ago but merged it with another thread after 3 months said didn't like that......


I don't remember this happening. The only popcorn thread that was locked was the one where the distributor wasn't being forthright and things started going downhill in terms of civility.

It shouldn't.
