not only on the specs on paper(usually less then 1500mha), but also actually using time as well. All thanks to htc sense UI which is rediculious heavy UI.

I'm pretty sure 15/month is just the data plan, you still have to buy minutes

I'm either or here: Skyrocket or Vivid. Leaning toward Vivid, even with the lower specs. HTC updates their phones once in a 'iteration' and a lot more often than the other manufacturers. Look at the Inspire with Gingerbread. Now Sense, well its another story.

> In reply to NakedDroid @ 2011-10-31 21:58 from H4v% - click to readI've had an unlocked GS II since June and it's already been updated three times so I'm not worried about that. When I had the GS I, it was updated 4 times before I sold it. I haven't used my carrier upgrade in almost four years, so when my unlocked devices gets updates I know I'm going to get them.

Carriers are most to blame with updates.

thank you god, I work for at&t everyone said I was crazy for waiting on the skyrocket they said it wouldn't come out till next year and htc comes out strong with the vivid im gonna have a hard time deciding I love HTC Sense way more than Touchwiz but ill probably end up rooting and installing cynogenmod when they get around to it,so...descesion's desicions'better than no decisions though

> In reply to [deleted post]it's surely a mistale and they wanted to say 2.3.5 and not 3.2.5 :)
These phones were surely in manufactures before ICS launch that's why they will come with gingerbread 2.3.5 and will be updated.
