Oh believe me I understand that (if you have seen how many phones have come through my hands, mostly for review), but having a phone give such poor data performance that you return it for new one and find the same thing? That was shocking to me. And since I had 3 devices from the same carrier at once to test - acknowledging that low signal (and 'digital roaming') were issues - it clearly IS this hardware version.

Which is, to me, one of those wonderful customer-hostile Android things. If a friend tells me he loves the Galaxy S2and my carrier is now getting it - at best I should get the identical phone. At worst the case styling should be slightly altered. Anything beyond that is essentially bait and switch … sort of like how I got something that has a huge screen but is clearly inferior in some ways to 'other' S2 versions.
