Just got the S2 LTE with an LTE account and an LTE SIM card (we now have Rogers LTE service in Ottawa). Fantastic phone but having a problem with SMS. When LTE signal fades to 4G, all SMS messages can be sent with no problem. However, when sending SMS by LTE, I receive an error message saying "Failed! Message not sent". Actually the message does get sent but I still get the error message. So I switched to GO SMS Pro - now I don't get the error message but the SMS messages are sent out twice (only in LTE mode; 4G mode still has no problem). Of course, SMS recipients are complaining about the double messaging. Anyone know what's going on and how to fix this? Thanks.
I get around 10 hrs of heavy usage out of ths bad boy thats constant web browsing, streaming hq movies, downloading torrents, listening to music, playing games, playing with apps. Since I had this phone I simply can't put it down for too long and the only use I have for my laptop is converting movies to dvd
TN, 10 Nov 2011Hi! PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS! Thanks! :) People says that this phone has poor battery ti... moreMany negative comments about S2, and S2 batterylife, is written by Nokia-fans that are pretending to have a S2 that have problems!
TN, 10 Nov 2011Hi! PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS! Thanks! :) People says that this phone has poor battery ti... moreS2 have one of the best batterylifes of all smartphones! But because S2 is the most fun of all smartphones users use it a lot more than they would use any other smartphone, and streaming HD 1080p Flash 11 movies for hours does ofcourse drain any battery and not even any Laptop-computer have longer batterylife when constantly doing all the things that S2 can do!

People says that this phone has poor battery ti... more@TN:
I bought this phone a couple of weeks ago. I can tell you this much. If you leave all the default stuff active (sync of everything), are connected to 3G all day, and don't stop using the phone (particularly web browsing, using 3G) the phone will die on you after 12 hours. That said, doing a little adjustments, and giving it a more subtle use, it will last around 2 days.
My opinion is that the one thing that absolutely drains the battery is the abusive use of the 3G (I don't mean background use, but direct use like, again, browsing). I've seen a movie, for around 1 hour, when the battery was at 15% and it didn't die. In this case I stopped the playback and charge the phone (at this point it was around 3%).
So, overall, I think is a decent battery. It's just so difficult to not use the phone when it has so many goodies and it works so fast. You just can't put it down :)
battery doesnt really last according to the specifications... it only last for the whole afternoon even if you use its power saving to 70%... so silly....
PLEASE HELP ME WITH THIS! Thanks! :)
People says that this phone has poor battery time. Where in the specifications text can you see if the battery time is good or not?? I thought this phone had a very good battery time by reading in the specifications. Why was I wrong?? :S
