Using voice commands and Bluetooth, phone does not wake up with Pattern lock enabled. Must first unlock phone manually before placing a call via Bluetooth. Obvious issue while driving.

I seem to recall a internet conversation somewhere talking about the fact that the hand writing to text feature is not working on the Sprint SGN2? I can't seem to get it working so this must be the case?

Edit:

Operator error. S pen works just fine

I shot some video with my Note2 today (Sprint) and playback was pretty choppy. Am I missing a setting somewhere? Hopefully I'm the one with the issue and not the device. Suggestions?

If you set S Pen settings to open pop up note Than in lock screen settings un-check Popup Note on lock screen, The pop up note will still pop up on the lock screen by pulling out the pen.

One issue that I have is if I'm playing music and a call comes in (or a text - anything with a notification sound), once I disconnect the call, the media volume won't be at the level it was before the call came in. The media volume would be low. I have to tap the volume up button once in order to get the media volume at the level it was before the call. I think it's a bug of some sort.

My S pen is writing when the tip is not touching the screen. I can hover above the screen and still draw on the note. It should not be doing this. It's also opening apps when hovering. Not touching like it should.

I'll be a little nit-picky.
Can not move apps to the SD card.
(Please don't blame it on the apps themselves, in other threads, reps have claimed that.)

Lateck,

Lateck,

Actually it's the Android Jelly Bean OS which prevents movement of Apps to SD Card.

Appreciate you asking the question knowing the answers are likely negative.

I'm most disappointed with network speeds, both 3G and LTE. Even though I live and work in an LTE market (Atlanta), and the rep at the Sprint store assured me that my neighborhood has LTE, I've only seen LTE on the status bar once, during a walk.

Over a week of testing 3G speeds average 500k down and 400k up. For comparison, my iPhone 4GS on AT&T's network averages 7Mb down and 1.2Mb up from the exact same location.

Should I expect faster 3G and LTE speeds from my Note 2? While I understand the LTE network is still under construction, I expected 3G to be much faster. Is there a chance my Note 2 is faulty?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Don't have lte in Miami yet but I concur with 3G speeds being abysmal! Not a note 2 problem since they've been abysmal with every sprint phone I've ever owned for the last 15 years. Rant over.
