Hi, you should really make your own thread for this as this is a thread for accessories, but when you say drop down, are you talking about the tab on the left hand side of the screen? If so then this is the multi tasking menu, to enable /disable just press the back key and keep it pressed for a few seconds

No problem, Glad you got it sorted, you don't have to apologize but if you make your own thread with your problem as the title you have more chance of getting it answered

^^ dang that is the best price I have ever seen for the 64 micro sd.. I need one. To bad I missed it. I'll keep a look out for more deals coming up.


Has anyone found a DUAL charging car adapter? I read some reviews that some dual car chargers wont charge their Android even the ones that claim to be 2A and 1A. I need to share with my GF who is an iphone user.. lol

Thanks!

This would be really useful for some of those coming over from the iPhone and happened to be invested in lots of iPhone/iPod docks.

Amazon.com: CoolStream Bluetooth Receiver for iPhone Dock. 30-Pin Adapter Turns iPhone/iPod docking station into a Bluetooth dock.: Cell Phones & Accessories

If it's too expensive, just for bluetooth integration (which I believe, it is a 'bit overpriced), here's another wired alternative (which I'm likely to get for a couple of docks I had purchased for an iPod a few years back):
Amazon.com: Apple ipad Iphone docking 30pin female to Micro usb 5p male data charge adapter By AtomicMarket: Cell Phones & Accessories

I don't use a screen cover. Instead, I bought a Speck case so that even if you set the phone on its face, the screen is further back and never touches anything and doesn't add bulk to the phone.

Also, if you travel or watch movies on your phone a lot, a phone case w/Built-In Battery might be a good idea. This case from the AT&T store is real leather, props-up, and when you plug-in the charger it charges both the battery in the case and your phone at the same time:

IMO, the smart dock is better and safer. I never trust wireless connection for important stuffs, such as presentation. I prefer to use USB cable/ hdmi to do that.
I think the battery charger is a steal, and you can get 50% discount if you buy it from the samsung online store. So, its around 25 bucks for charger + battery! There are some people sharing the discount code in this thread

I just wish Samsung would get back stock already. It's been a couple weeks and I still haven't been able to order.

Does the Samsung flip cover work with extra protectors? Such as the flip cover and a gel skin?

I dont think i can get deals from smasung online sotres as am not in US am in kenya, so dont think it will work out, the best price i got on Ebay is 47.80 $ free shipping to kenya from korea and its for both charger and the battery.

Now regarding the wireless dock, its samsung original part, i am still confused as i really dont like to get stucked with wires and the smart dock, as i want be even able to drow something on the device while doing my presentation?
Have anyone here tried the samsung all share wireless? does the connection goes off?
also with smart dock it means even if the device battery is fully charged and you place it on the dock it will start charging again, and as i know that will affect the battery life

This comes with a spare battery, but it is not a charging desktop dock, more-so a stand (which, because of the great battery, I never really have a need to have the phone continually charged...due to all the extra batteries I have now):
Galaxy Note

This doesn't come with a spare battery, but is a charging stand/dock:
Samsung Galaxy Universal Multimedia Desktop Dock

Only real question is if the extra battery that comes with the charging kit will work with Verizon, since Verizon/US Cellular have a separate battery listed on Samsung's website:
Galaxy Note

Before purchasing the extra battery kit (w/ stand), I would contact Samsung first, just to verify that the batteries will work properly with the Verizon version.

I actually purchased both; the battery specifically for Verizon as well as the battery and charger dock and both came with the exact same battery. My only question now is whether that is accurate or did they shipped me the wrong battery? I won't know for sure until tomorrow when my Verizon branded phone arrives. If they did ship me the wrong one it is going back!

Rumor is the Battery supplied with the Verizon Note 2 is unique as it also contains the NFC chip.

All other Note 2s have the NFC chip mounted on inside of the rear cover.

According to Samsungs site, Verizon and US Cellular use the same battery.

What does the inside cover look like on a non Verizon GNII? Once I know this, it will help me answer the question. Post pic please.

Yes please. Someone please remove your battery cover and take a pic of the inside of it. It's okay. Your battery won't fall out in the process of taking the pic.

Thank you very much. Now this is odd. Being that it's the same door as everyone else, the claim that NFC is in the battery doesn't make sense.

Hmm, the battery in your picture does say VZW on it, but your back cover looks just like my Sprint one.

I'm jealous that Verizon gets a removable SIM card and Sprint doesn't.

Why would they brand the battery if there's no difference?

Hey everyone,

I just got a Note 2 on Sprint and I absolutely love it. The only problem is that it's too big for my current car dock, which was a generic one I've had for years and has worked with every other phone I've owned. I need a car dock big enough to hold the Note and also be vent-mounted. My dashboard curves, so dash docks tend not to work, and it's illegal to use windshield docks in CA.

Are there any vent-mounted car docks you guys can recommend? Hopefully something sturdy that will last, because before I found the one I'm currently using, I went through a ton of crappy, cheap docks.

Thanks so much!

Mugen Power offers massive 6,400mAh Galaxy Note II battery, tests the limits of our pockets
While I love the integrated kickstand, I hate the bulk that's added...LOL...I posted a pic in the other thread that mentioned this, but that'd almost like carrying one of these around again (and the comparison with the iPhone is pretty spot on with how the Note II would be with the extended battery):

6400mAh. That's ridiculous. It's gotta be cheaper and easier to have a spare battery, no?

With how much it costs you could have 4 spare batteries!

Get the ProClip - you choose a mount for your SPECIFIC vehicle, and the holder for your phone. They already have the GN2 holder out and I've made the change in my car - it's sweet! And, they have a charging dock models, too. I've been using ProClip for several years and ALWAYS go back to them for the next new phone. I can't brag on them enough!

If you look at the part numbers for both batteries they are the same. I think it's just for the branding.

You bring up a good point as I have both batteries and they look identical in every way.

But after saying all that it does look nice

Your inside Cover shouldn't get very dirty because you talk with the cover CIosed! the inside is made to be a screen Cleaner. The cover is also great for privacy because it blocks other people from viewing your screen when held open like a book!

Default Samsung Stand/Battery/Charger?

I've used the search function for about 30 minutes but can't seem to find the thread that contained a link to the Samsung branded charger/dock that came with an extra battery. The thread also had a handy 50% off coupon making the charger only $25.00.

Anyone have that link handy?

Thank you!

As a side note has anyone tried out this larger S Pen on the Note 2?

No worries. I've moved your post to the accessories thread.
Also if you register your device on Samsung's site you should receive your own 50% of code.
