Regardless of the phone you get using WIFI in a weak cell network area is the way to go. Almost all modern phones have the WIFI option.


I think (think) that this has something to with the S2 (I have it) not being an LTE device, it will get 4G Wimax and maybe HSPA (again, not sure) If you had a newer LTE capable device, things might be very different?

The point I keep trying to make is that you can't compare the "bars" of strength between 4G and 3G technologies.
