If you're really asking and that question mark is on purpose.. the answer is no, no multi-tasking/split screen yet (other than pop-up browser/video).

If that question mark was a typo and you were making a statement... you are correct.

Not sure on this one, can't figure it out. I think maybe that's why Sprint and T-Mobile got theirs first; they used Samsung packaging and didn't have to run lines for different box. Who knows.

It will be interesting to see what Verizon does.

Hey everyone ,

To those who took delivery, did anyone get any sleep last night?

I was up till 2:00am using the Note2, and using the Play Store.

As a refresher, I'm a 57 yr old engineer / musician/videographer
and delaying activating the AT&T SIM, until I get good and comfortable with the Note2 and the Android Jelly Bean world.

This is the best device Ive ever owned

DrEx please ask TS to make the Samsung Guide @Elantric posted a stickie. Maybe also included the user manual too for easy access.

This guide is an interactive app with quick video showing functions of the Note 2 brown down into sections. Almost like a quick guide but with more detail.

Real poor packaging AT&T, phone box inside larger brown cardboard box no bubble wrap. Phone box slamming around inside bigger box to the point tape tore at the bend that tapes the phone box shut, also tape band that was around the data cable unstuck. Finally forms inside phone box (flattened) no longer supporting phone?? Though phone in perfect shape and working order. One more extra stop by the Fedex man and the phone would have been floating free inside the brown cardboard box outside of the it's phone box...??.......?

Same here, AT&T really cheeped out on the boxing and the earbuds; not like it is an $800 phone or anything!

Seriously - I was thinking the same thing!! Although I shouldn't complain - i usually lose stock headphones in a couple weeks and end up replacing them with some mid-level buds. Been starting to think about what I should get to compliment the Note 2...

I'm curious if anyone contacted AT&T to find out why they removed the headsets. What other carrier didn't include them?

Not just that but why was it necessary to repackage the entire product? Samsung's box made me think high quality like Apple boxes. If mine came in AT&T's orange box that would be the first thing I threw away. And that says a lot considering I've kept all my boxes. Never knew when they'd be needed.

Don't worry. You'll soon see them selling it as a "separate accessory" lol

Totally shady AT&T!!! The other thing that's a bit surprising is this hasn't made major blog headlines. Seems all kids of nonsense shows up in Flipboard. AF and AC need to be writing about this.

You can imagine my surprise - I started an entire thread discussing the quality of the "stock" earbuds!

By the way, how do you turn of the one handed keyboard? I mysteriously activated it and cant go back.

Yes, and for only $19.99 probably; what a steal This just adds to my loathing of AT&T. Seriously? AT&T's stooped so low now as to start stealing earbuds?

I've seen them call the battery an "accessory".
How can you call something an accessory when it is required to use the device?

I'm new to the forum and a new Android user coming over from the IPhone which I have been using since 2008. I just ordered my white Note 2 from AT&T today and I am very excited to receive it.

I saw that the white was back-ordered and I tried to call AT&T to change to the Titanium Grey so I would not have to wait 3 weeks, but the AT&T shipping department told me that there are definitely more Titanium phones in stock but they do have enough white phones to cover all the orders that are in the system and the white phones would only take about 3 days more to receive than the grey due to the large # of orders for that color.

I hope it's true. My status changed today on the AT&T website from backordered to Pending shipment!
