I'm on the fence about the N7000. it's such a better phone compared to the i717, but if i can't get data, it's useless for me.

What do you guys think?
you should be able to get 2g just not 3g/ hspa unless you are in one of the areas that has the reformed towers that support HSPA on the 1900mhz bandwidth. It really comes down to whether you want fast speeds or a faster device. How much slower is AT&T's gnote compared to the international version anyways? I mean I have heard that it renders some things slower but other than that they are close to the same speed.
Nexus 7.2 is beautiful
