Now that all of the major and minor carriers have announced their pricing for the Galaxy S II superphone, we thought we’d do what you guys seem to enjoy – or at least enjoy arguing over – and that’s to do a brief comparison of what each carrier will offer you at a certain price. Since carriers are always changing their standard plan prices, we’re basing this comparison of $59 caps or a close equivalent if there is no $59 cap. You follow? Good, hit the break.
All plans are over 24 months. What we think is the better deal in each area is highlighted in green, feel free to discuss it in the comments.

Big props to Telstra for being competitive as always. As you know, I buy phones outright, but I’m interested to hear who you are/will/have going/go/gone with. I’ll see you in the comments.
