Yeah, I'm sure it does, ts...thing is, I still haven't rooted. I'll be rooting the Photon as soon as I upgrade though. It's more important for me, because I also use my phone for business, to stick with the stock updates...so LG's OEM support has to step up from what I've seen in most of the complaints.

Hello,
Earlier in this thread you mentioned online rumors that Verizon may skip the note 2 for the htc. That was before the story broke on the 10th about all 4 carriers hopefully having it but I wanted to see what info you have about VZW getting the note 2...

Thanks!

Not saying it won't have any....just very little.
The Photon was like that as well. Not many devs had one to work on.
so far this is the first smartphone that i'm /really/ excited about tinkering with themes on my rooted kindle fire and i really enjoy the freedom of customization

Under Settings and Security, there should be an option to allow apps from unknown sources. Enable that checkbox and you should be good.

From previous posts, there is a screenshot of the about phone screen showing a VZW model number, and there are pictures of the Note II with VZW carrier branding on the back and front home button (really hope that doesn't make it to the final release). From the evidence, it seems the VZW model is a go.

No I'm not Mr Ed, but if they did on the S3 I can't see them giving the Note 2 the benefit of the doubt. They will probably just sell an unlocked one on Samsung.com just as they are w/ the S3.

Thanks. Saw that but I didn't know if Mr. Ed was referencing rumors/info that came out after that vs before.

Was so bummed that the Note 1 didn't come to VZW (created a thread there at launch telling reasons why I think it is the perfect phone).

Hoping this is all set. My Galaxy Nexus has been really good overall but this phone is perfect. I say bring on the 6" phones!!

Yeah. I thought it was strange when they said that as well.

Then again, even phone as old as the original Droid can say up to 64gb supported...lol...cuz they've all proven to work. I've been rocking my 64gb card for months in my Photon.

Ditto! Whether it's October or November, either month will be perfectly fine for me as long as I can compare both the Eclipse and this phone in store to make my final decision.

The part that is making my head spin in that link is the reference to cellular phone and secondary cellular phone where it says Dual parallel operation.
GSM & CDMA, ????? for the SPH-L900 which is the model for the Sprint version.

if it ends up being a world phone i am going to flip out.

Same thing was mentioned in the xda thread. Part of me doesn't believe it'll truly be a would phone...but, if it is and the sim is unlocked, that would be the cherry on top pushing me to get the note 2 over the eclipse (although, if the us version of the eclipse is non-removable battery and no sd, it's a moot point cuz note 2 would be hands-down choice).

Honestly I lived with a locked bootloader on my D3 and it wasn't bad. It was just a huge pain when going from a previous version OS to a new OS (for the D3 it was GB to ICS). I can still root and ROM flash to my heart's content. I may wait a little on it to see if a leaked bootloader comes along like it did for the SGS3. I just really want my undervolting to balance against the high drain screen.

In all the press releases as well as on the phonearena page it states "International Voice and Data capable with GSM/UMTS/CDMA networks"

That to me makes it a world phone on the Sprint Now network.

OMG

Nice...now it's just a matter of knowing which versions will be available, as far as memory is concerned (e.g. 16/32/64). Hopefully, all (even though I'd go for the 64).

From the press release, looks like only the 16gb version:

Yeah...hahaha. I was just so excited to get official word from Sprint, that I failed to read the entire press release. At least I know that 1 of my top 2 choices are available. I am slightly disappointed that they're not going to have the bigger memory versions.

Especially if apps can't be moved to the memory card. Could pose a problem for some.

For apps, it really depends on how the 16gb is partitioned. Assuming it's similar to the LTEvo and SGS3, the 3gb or so (out of the 16) that's partitioned and available for apps only should be more than enough for me (I haven't moved apps to the SD since I started having issues with that on my Photon).

For me, it's all about being able to download hard media files, rather than streaming. Mostly for work, but a good portion for my own personal needs. Streaming is just not the best option for me, even though many people prefer that nowadays.

I also use Flixster for movies that I've purchased and include a digital file. The Flixster app only allows the downloaded file to be read from the Internal Storage and can't be placed on the microSD (and still be identified when trying to play offline).

Anybody know, is the Note 2's stock browser that works with the S-Pen hovering google chrome or samsung's own proprietary browser?

Also, for those that have used chrome for Android (I still haven't, since the Photon is stuck on gingerbread), do you know if it will import your bookmarks and folders connected to your google account?

I didn't read the link. "Only" 16GB. Is there any mention of 32GB later on? It would kind of suck if people got this thinking that's all there was going to be only for a higher capacity to come out 2 months later.

There are contradicting articles. Some say only 1 version 16GB, while others say 16GB, 32GB, & 64 GB storage. Very confused right now??

Links : Talking about internal storage only here

http://www.gottabemobile.com/2012/09/19/samsung-announces-galaxy-note-ii-for-u-s-with-4g-support-quad-core-exynos-cpu/ says 3 versions..16,32, & 64


http://phandroid.com/2012/09/19/verizon-wireless-sprint-att-t-mobile-us-cellular-announce-plans-to-sell-galaxy-note-2/ says 1 version 16.

More likely to believe the 2nd link as it is the official press release.

How did you find out about the retail price? That's steep, but I sold my GS3 and my Asus tablet for this phone and I would still have to put a little money with it. Geez!

Thats the retail price quoted from US Cellular, usually they are all around the same but personally I am hoping for 749.99 so my square trade will cover the exact amount

Samsung's press release is separate and apart from what each provider will offer.

From my recollection, the SGS 3 (when first announced) was supposed to be available in 16/32/64, but the 64 never came out. There were rumors of a black version of the SGS 3 being released that would be the 64gb version, but that still hasn't shown up yet. Sprint ended up offering the 16gb version (through sprint and all 3rd party sprint retailers), but the 32gb version was exclusive to Sprint.

I wouldn't mind the same thing happening, as long as both the 16 and 32 are offered everywhere (not just exclusively through Sprint). My main option to purchase is Best Buy because I have a $50 "upgrade" credit, under their phone freedom program, that I can use. On top of that, I have Reward certificates that I'd like to use as well.
