Welp.........I've lurked here for a bit and just joined to share this experience.
Bought Bell SGS new in Sept 2010, 2.1, bricked just before Christmas.
Bell gave me POS Window's phone as loaner, SGS returned fixed 10 days later, still 2.1
A few days later, 2.2 released, updated.
2 weeks ago, phone bricked AGAIN.
Bell sent me Brick 3 2 nights ago, brand new, in box with 2.2 UGJL2,...lag....soft buttons work by themself or not at all.
Called and screamed at Bell....they wanted to send me SGS brick 4. No thanks, said I want out of the SGS or i'm paying out and going to Rogers for a GOOD phone. Bell HTC Desire Z on its way.
I wish you all luck with your SGS but between Bell and Samsung, I think for all it's bells and whistles it's a POS (in my experience). Not sure if the HTC will match up, but if runs problem free for more than a month it'll be off to a good start compared to the SGS. I must say, I loved the phone.....WHEN IT WORKED
. It's a shame really.........
Bell said they don't even want the SGS (Brand new and working.....kind of) back when I get the Desire. What's that say???? Ummmmmm they have boxes and boxes of these paper weights at the Bell mothership and don't want anymore. Just wanted to share my frustration and disappointment and this seemed like a good place.
