Exactly. For sure worth the extra wait now IMO.

Yep. If that's the true reason, I'm not annoyed. It's still a little off-putting that the DNA launches on an earlier date...before Black Friday especially when the Note 2 isn't really a "challenger" it's more a specialized device.

I wonder if anyone can check if the Verizon Galaxy Note 2 also has the
Screen Recorder - missing on the AT&T version?

Was Screen Record Removed?

If it's being released at BB does that mean we can hope for it earlier than expected? The agent I talked too said if I pre ordered I'd get it before the hard launch date which is the 29th?

The girl at BB said they get shipment in Friday and they were expecting the Note2. She didnt seem so sure or even had a clue. She supposedly said "VZW doesn't have the branding on the home button" but we all know better right!

Can you imagine if they did release it WITHOUT the branding?

However I doubt Best Buy would be allowed to sell any prior to release date. Unless they really goof up. So go bat your eyes behind the hipster glasses Morpeee and report back! ;P

Hahaha! The VZW agent seemed more knowledgeable and said if it says the 27th we would be the first to get our devices if the hard launch date was the 29th. She threw in a curve ball and said they might just release same time as DNA but I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT IS EVEN PAUSIBLE FOR VERIZON'S SLOWNESS!

OT if I bat my eyes they'd chase me out due to the horror behind the glasses. Lol

Probably partly, but I have it up and running perfectly on my TMo device already anyhow.

Thank you unlocked BL and dedicated ROM Guru's!

Just chatted with an agent on live chat. She said the DNA is launching on the 19th with the note2 launching as expected. Earlier the better tho!

@jasaero I thought TMOBILE didn't have the updates yet just sprint for now? Or did you root it?

I never buy my phones from anywhere else except true Verizon stores. Not Best Buy or a store like a Verizon "Authorized Reseller"

Why do Best Buys have the Verizon note before launch?

I'm rooted and have loaded a customized ROM with the multiwindow stuff added.

The multiwindow stuff has even been modded so that you can use a little app to add extra applications from the chooser list that are not there on the stock version. With the stock Samsung version you are limited to what they have on the list in one window and whatever you had opened first in the other. With this custom one you can have to random apps open on the screen.

I wouldn't be surprised if they have them in stock already but aren't allowed to sell. Remember we're hitting holiday madness...I'm surprised floor models are out this early though, if they can't sell it...

I've become rather iffy on rooting since I ran into trouble with the last device I rooted. I didn't even know what happened, but that customized ROM does seem tempting tho. I need a rooting for dummies so I don't mess anything up.

It's just for people to fondle, not actually for sale yet. They can pre order though I am sure.

I want someone to rip the back cover off and make sure there's a micro-sd expansion slot.

There most likely is one, but I only trust Verizon as far as I can throw their company headquarters...which most likely wouldn't be very far.

It states right on the Verizon site it has expandable memory up to 64GB. They aren't going to change that up.

Rooting and then trying to follow some instructions to do some mod can be dangerous. Lots of mods are assuming a very specific stock rom and such, but if you have something not so stock or did some other conflicting mod it can mess stuff up. Best bet is to load a custom ROM with the mods you are looking for that seems to have users reporting that everything is working well and such.

Then with VZW and locked and encrypted boot loaders you get further danger until some very well thought out work arounds that everyone understands are developed or the BL is unlocked by luck somehow. This was another reason I left Verizon. More open bootloader devices are available on TMo.

Rooting with Odin is very easy on Samsung phones. Moto are the tough ones

If it doesn't come unlocked I'm sure i can get verizon to give me the unlock code, the issue is i need to know if it's even capable of being used on global gsm bands? otherwise i have to get the dna because i travel internationally quite a bit

It should be the same as the DNA in this perspective.

When I pre ordered my SGN2... The agent asked if I would be traveling internationally and I said yes so he included an international sim of some sort

27th is when preorders will ship directly from distribution centers. Instead of going to a store, it will just go to your home.

Last time pre-orders arrived to some 2-3 days before the ship date.
Wonder if I'll see before Thanks Giving? They'd have to ship like on the 20-21st to be there before Thursday. Na, probably not.
4-day weekend, would have loved to play with it.

The last time I pre ordered my iPhone from VZW that's what they did but this one I ordered from a premium retailer so if they ship it on the 27th to the retailer location I'd get my phone later than everyone correct? The guy said they do all the activation stuff at the store and I'd have to go there to pick up? Sorry if this is confusing.

@2011mazdaspeed I read it from this article... And spoke to a few agents that said the hard launch date is the 29th.

I can't say for certain, but you will proably get it the same day as general release or maybe a day later depending on when the shipper gets to the store. If the store gets their shipment early in the day, then you could probably get it that afternoon. It's rare that someone gets one of these preorders early because VZW has a deal with FedEx (their normal shipper) to do 2 day shipping and not deliver early (even if the device has to sit at the local FedEx distribution center overnight).

Ya, the more I compare to the DNA, the more I like the Note 2. Jack of all trades, no limitations, no compromise (almost).
What is missing?
Well, 1080p is.
Battery size, check.
Replaceable battery, check.
Memory card, check.
Screen sharpness, check.
Screen size, check.
captive buttons not taking screen space, check.
Quad core, check.
JB, check. (Can't believe new phone are still releasing ICS with TWO updates missing. (Droid Razr).
JB 2.2, unfortunately.
2gb ram, check.
A great camera, check. Some just plain old suck (razr, nexus, etc)

Ah yes, one more thing the Note has that many others don't (Nexus, LG G, Droid Razr, etc) a good camera!

Went to best buy and played with it tonight. Love the display. Touchwiz and icons are ugly but can be easily resolved. The inking experience with the s-pen is the best you can get on the phone, but it wasn't as good as my samsung slate at home. Hoping I'll be able to get a different pen and calibrate it. Same digitizer technology. Still...I'm in love.

Come on verizon jerks!

I came across a thread around here last night that said this pen (Wacom Bamboo Pen) works with the Note II.

I'm all in!!!
Just placed my pre-order today. Had to wait until today for the upgrade. I thought about the DNA briefly, but I need more than 11GB of usable internal storage, and I really want the S pen for writing quick notes when I'm on the phone. I already have a belt clip and full body protector (from Phantom Skinz) at home for when my baby arrives....

Lets just hope they ship early!

So it's only getting shipped on the 27th? I figured I would be getting it on that day and it would be shipping earlier . This whole ordeal and having the Dna launch before the N2 has really made me hate Verizon.

My dad is chomping at the bit to get his hands on the Droid DNA, I tell him he's crazy. He has a Droid Bionic right now and he wants to upgrade to either that or the Droid Razr HD/HD Maxx.
I was busy practicing the motion controls for the Note II on a GS3. My favorite has to be either the double tap on the top to scroll to the top of a list or the touch and move around a picture one.

On Wednesday I don't have school so we're going to go to the Verizon store so my dad can play with a DNA *sigh*

EDIT: I forgot to mention that I also found the palm swipe to screenshot to work, some people have been saying they can't use it

A) Are you sure its on in the settings? Each motion control has a separate on/off switch.

B) I did it by holding the phone in my left hand (I'm right handed) and using my right index and middle fingers.

Yes it's on in motions. Guess I should've said that in the previous post. Right index & middle finger- where exactly are you tapping?
