Default Purchased my Note from Wirefly

Went to Wirefly because my carrier is Sprint, this allowed me to save the extra $50 that Sprint is charging.

After I rec'd the phone, I powered it up and it ran me through some menu screens and then proceeded to tell me to contact Sprint.

Upon chatting with Wirefly, they told me the phone was activated and should be good to go. Following a reboot, it kept giving me sign up screens for Google Now and other spam type sign ups.

If you are with Sprint and purchase from Wirefly, make sure to select no on all of the sign up screens that come up when you are attempting to activate the phone. You can sync up Gmail or any of the other accounts later.

Bypassing them by selecting No was the only way I could get past all the menu screens to actually see the home page of the phone.

Coming from the SII this thing is a beast, love it so far.
