  1. I am dying to upgrade to the Galaxy S II or the Galaxy Nexus. I don’t want to sign up for a 2 year contract though. I currently have a NexusOne and I followed the instructions on this page: to set it up with Tmobile prepaid that costs $30 a month. As soon as I can afford an unlocked Galaxy S II then I’m going to switch over. I love the new Android phones but, I refuse to get ripped off by the phone companies (…I’m looking at you AT&T!). The USA really needs a GOOD, cheap smart phone package that comes with a decent phone at an affordable price. I know people who are paying $130+ a month for phones. That’s crazy. I won’t do it.
