  • Go pick it, now! Love this phone! You can also get it from Finland for 200€ (don't know how much that is as £ or $), but wherever you live, this is a bargain. And it could be the best WP8 cause it can be hacked!
  • Anyone know when Update 3 comes for the Ativ S? :$
  • Just sign up as a WP8 developer and download the 'preview for developers' app! I used it and works well!
  • Super amoled = normal amoled screen lol shamesung shame on you !! ^_^
  • Super amoled has nothing on Super Duper Amoled
  • Huh, wtf are you talking about!!!
  • Cracking phone!
  • Awesome phone rapid buttons never break like polycarb nokias everyone thinks its s3 until dadaaaa... Suck on that android awesome camera for 8mp
  • Best balanced WP so far. For this price is a steal. Nokia, examine closely and learn how is done.
  • Sure....with over 90% WP market share, I don't think Nokia cares right now.
  • At its 180€
  • I bought the I8750 by mistake not knowing about the T899m first from Amazon and though it works on T-mobile in the US, I really preffered getting the T899m for the LTE. I then returned the I8750 for the T899M and I don't regret it one bit. The T899m was more expensive but well worth it. Now running LTE, MMS and Internet Sharing on T-MOBILE US This deal is for the Samsung Ativ S I8750 (without LTE)
    Network: HSPA+ 42Mbps 850/900/1900/2100MHz / EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900MHz / (Band frequency, HSPA availability, and data speed are operator dependent Not the Samsung Ativ S T899M (with LTE)
    Network: HSPA 42Mbps 850/1700/1900/2100MHz EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1900/2100MHz; LTE 1700/2100 Make sure you check the bands to see if it will work with your carrier.
  • In the UK LTE is worse than 2G in 1998.
  • I just got my T899M. I don't see no LTE symbol up top. Just 3G and 4G. Also in the cellular settings there's no LTE under settings.
  • Hi, have you verified that it's the T899M in the about section under settings? Under cellular you should see Highest connection speed (LTE). If you don't see the LTE option, it's not the T899M, it's the I8750.
  • It plainly says T899M but no LTE under highest speed settings.
  • For us ukers it shows up as 4g i think.
  • Do you have an option under cellular that says gsm or cdma? The T899M from Telus that I have doesn't have that option but the I8750 does. I know this because I had that phone before the T899M.
  • No and my T899M is from Telus too. I use it on tmo USA. My 925 shows LTE and my ATIV S shows 4G. Does yours have the LTE icon up top and in the cellular settings?
    Edit: I'm running GDR3
  • Yes, mine shows the LTE icon on top and I can select it under cellular. On GDR3 as well. I'm on the apn. Do you have internet sharing working?
  • Never tried internet sharing. it shows up now as on with a password but I don't have nothing on me now to connect. I'll try when I get home. Would you mind listing your firmware, hardware, radio, etc numbers? Thanks or can you just take a screenshot and email
  • I've been using this for almost a month.great phone after my Nokia E71 died
  • 178£ in our country :)
  • Well, it's cheaper on Just received mine today.
  • Had this phone for quite a while now and still not seen a WP worth upgrading too. Am hoping for 5" version of the lumia 1520 or a new htc flagship.
  • Agreed. Me too. Still waiting and hoping for a better phone than Ativ S
  • Got the T899 ativ s new on an eBay auction for $300 4 months ago. Absolutely the best money i have ever spent on a phone.
  • Me too. Same price I love it.
  • Also got mine off eBay for a great price. An underrated handset, for sure.
  • I bought one on for 180€ which is cheaper. Best phone I have ever had and better than the Nokias.
  • I got it in Portugal for 187€... ;)
  • I'm waiting for it go down lower or will probably get a 3rd hand one off eBay for cheap so i can interop unlock it :p.
  • This isn't the LTE version, but, if that's not important, then this is definitely a great phone.
  • This seems like a galaxy s 3 version, so.... Any s4 version coming soon???
