Summary: I just purchased the phone a week ago I'm still learning it but I love it. Plenty of apps to choose from and kinda easy to configure. The only bad thing so far is the battery life compared to my old phone. But I do hope to stay with Galaxy series when it time to upgrade again.
One of the best phones on the market at a great price.

Summary: First of let me say that I love this phone. The first phone I got was DOA. The seller (Heights Mobile) was very good about having me return the phone and sending out a new one. The return process took about a week. I am using this with Straight Talk and get excellent reception in the Portland/Vancouver area - the phone says I'm getting 4G data - not sure if I really am. I was able to upgrade the OS from Gingerbread to Ice Cream Sandwich, waiting on Jelly bean.
Summary: I havent had it for too long, but already I can tell that its a great upgrade from my ZTE warp. It runs very fast, its also surprisingly thin and it has a very large screen.The battery life isnt bad either. Besides it not having a camera button and having the power/sleep button on the side rather than on top (but I'll get used to it), this phone is perfect. Despite it not being the NEWEST phone, it definitely runs like one.
Awesome phone, even better with Jelly Bean and on the Straight Talk network

Summary: I bought this phone used from gazelle. This phone is an awesome phone, great balance of performance, features and battery life. This phone is worth every penny when new, and even better deal with the money I saved by getting it used from gazelle. Samsung always makes high quality phones, but they out did themselves with the Skyrocket. It rivals the Galaxy S3 for 1/3 the price. I have had Jelly Bean on this phone since 1 day after I received the phone.
Summary: When I first got my new phone I was unsure if Id like it or not due to it being a tad bigger than what I was used to (had the palm centro and samsung instinct prior). No sooner than an hour after I got it activated I loved it and wont change it for a very long time.
Summary: I've had this phone for a few months and it really is a good one. Mine works off at&t towers and thats also a plus. Samsung needs to send out an update for the Android system though. Gingerbread is almost 2 years old. It seems like all the other modles of the Galaxy SII got updates except this one.
