No Galaxy S II for Verizon Customers

So, you’ve been holding off from upgrading your flagging device to wait for the blazing fast Samsung Galaxy S II. You thought you wouldn’t have to wait long, but then the release was pushed back to Q3, even though the whole of Europe has been enjoying it since May. No matter you thought, I can wait a few more months, well if you’re a Verizon customer you’re going to be pretty disappointed right about now.

Verizon confirmed to The Wall Street Journal today that it will not be offering the device. When questioned about the decision Brenda Raney, executive director for corporate communications at Verizon commented on their “robust portfolio” giving customers plenty of choice including the Samsung Droid Charge that runs on their 4G LTE network .

For those of you who happen to be on AT&T, T-mobile or Sprint, you shouldn’t have to wait long to get your hands on the SGS II. Samsung is holding an event on Monday to announce all the details of its release. In the meantime let us know your thoughts on Verizon not offering the device, will it cause you to switch carriers? Those of you already with the other carriers, will you be picking up the device at launch? Let us know below!

    If the Nexus Prime doesn’t come to Verizon I guess I’m just stuck with my OG Droid for the rest of my life.

    Unf****ing believable.  I have been due to upgrade my Eris since May, and have held off for this phone.  I am NOT happy.

    I’m very dissapointed.  Verizon does not offer anything close to the Galaxy S-II.  There is no other choice for me, but to switch to AT&T.

    I am also very upset. I have an Eris as well and Ive been waiting, as well as went into the store several time just to bug them about the SII they just said “Ive never heard of that phone.” I really want to switch for this phone as well. I honestly don’t see how the droid is better than this. I was at best buy the other day and someone said that despite the news they will potentially get the phone. 

    I thought they would go for it because they have the galaxy, galaxy s, and all the galaxy tabs. so with these two things, they may just get it late, I don’t know, I just want it, and if verizon doesnt have what I want then there is not reason for me to give them money.
