    This is very good for the people who are either new to smartphones or not interested in technology stuff. But nothing can beat the out of box experience provided by Apple and Microsoft with their respective platforms, which might not need any other stuff to do.

    Cool.  It’s looking like SkyRocket(s) will be finding their way into my home in the near future.  Maybe even as early as today.   The latest updates in IOS5 have really messed with my wife’s 3GS.  She’s been due for an update, but held off to see what happened with the 4S-5 deal.  She’s pretty turned off of the Iphone right now and was thinking about heading over to AT&T today.

      I would hold out and check the Vivid. :)

    We actually did check out the Vivid and Skyrocket side by side.  The qHD resolution on the Vivid is pretty nice, but my god the phone weighs a ton compared to the Samsung.   They’re both good phones with their pluses and minuses and its really not easy to chose between the two.

      the vivid might weigh a ton compared to the skyrocket but theres a huge difference in the quality of the plastics as well. you can scratch samsung plastic just by blowing on the crap, whereas HTC is much more scratch/ damage resistant and way more likely to live through a fall in my personal experience.

        You don’t have to sell me on HTC quality.. to date I’ve only owned HTC smartphones including a Touch Dual, Tilt2, HD2, and most recently an Incredible 2.

        There are features of both the Vivid and Skyrocket that I like, and some that I don’t.  At the moment, once you add it all up, I think Skyrocket just edges out the Vivid.   But damn they are soooo close to each other, its really not an easy decision. 

        [although Super One Click does work on the Sammy ;-)]

    Hmmm.  this is an interesting option.  Purchase a 4G LTE Galaxy Tab and get a SkyRocket free!!   The POGO plans are available for the tablet, but a 2 yr contract is required on the phone.

    I bought 2 of the SkyRockets and they are really cool except the Ready2Go doesn’t do anything. I’ve tried it on both phones several times in different ways and nothing is ever sent to the phone. The only other thing I’ve found I don’t like is the phone gets very hot during a call. My ear ends up burning and it isn’t because someone is talking about me behind my back.
