After waiting for close to 3 months and tracking the weekly deals, today 1 Oct 11, the Samsung Galaxy SII phone price dropped $80 from $348 to $268.
I dashed over after dropping off the kids to get my paws on it and thus started my migration from the blue to the green.
After a day of charging, I got full battery. Played a bit too some photos. The next day the battery was down to 1 div. 🙁
Update 4 Oct
My playlists and SMSes are still on the phone. I need to move them over or exported. More annoying is the Calendar alert. It just plays the alert tone once and thats it. Battery life better now, after I have set the power management to 70%.
