    The following video by qbking77 outlines a few issues recently discovered on the Sprint version of the Galaxy Note 2

    Hopefully both Sprint and Samsung issue an update to fix them.

    If you encounter any other issue, post them up.

    Only one that's a bit concerning is bringing the phone out of standby.

    It would be a huge fail if they don't bring multitasking to the US. The backlash would be bad, so I doubt that will be held from update soon.

    I have never had voice and data capabilities at the same time, so I won't miss that, but would be nice to have.

    What are the odds that Samsung will actually fix these things? Are they even fixable through a simple update?

    That voice and data radio would be pretty sweet. I have LTE in my area so it won't be a huge concern unless I get into a spotty area. I guess one benefit to having Best Buy behind the curve is that any small issues have a chance to be addressed.

    SVDO is not possible with an update, the FCC docs show that it does not have it.

    Edit: FCC Docs for the Sprint version

    That's only for the US version?

    I would rather have an issue that can be fixed via an easy software update than the issue with the Iphone 5 which has that scuffgate problem which everyones complaining about at the moment. But Each phone has its own set of problems though I suppose

    So I have an idea for a thread that I think would be pretty useful. If you've had an issue with the Galaxy Note II that you've solved, or even been unable to solve, post about it here, and I'll compile a list of solutions in this main thread.


    Only keyboards are English, Spanish, and Korean
    Problem: I would like a keyboard with *insert language here* but the only languages available out of the box are English, Spanish, and Korean.

    Solution: The stock keyboard only has English, Spanish, and Korean downloaded, but you can actually go into Settings>Language and input>Samsung keyboard's cog and download additional languages for both standard input and handwriting. Quite a few languages are available, so if you speak another language besides English, Spanish, or Korean, check it out.

    Somewhat solved

    Folders in App Drawer won't sort correctly for Alphabetical grid
    Problem: If you press the menu key while in the App Drawer, you can change the view type to "Customizable grid", "Alphabetical grid", and "Alphabetical list". Customizable grid and Alphabetical list both work fine, but Alphabetical grid has issues. If there are Apps inside of folders, they will not sort alphabetically, and if you delete an app, there will be a gap when that app used to be.

    Partial solution: You can use AppZorter to rearrange your apps how you'd like them quickly, but there's a downside, in that you have to run it periodically, it won't just automatically keep your apps sorted.

    AppZorter Lite


    Change Notification Bar Power Widgets
    Problem: By default, there are 5 shortcuts in the Notification Bar, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, Sync, and Screen rotation. The only ones of those I'll ever use are Wi-Fi and Screen rotation. I'd like a way to be able to replace the other 3 with more useful shortcuts.

    Standard vibrations for notifications are really long
    Problem: I'd like the vibration that happens when I get a text, facebook popup, etc. to be shorter. You can change the vibration pattern for your ringtone in the settings, but that doesn't change the notifications vibration.

    Stock browser loads websites incorrectly
    Problem: Websites are not always the correct size when loaded on the stock browser, requiring them to be manually resized.

    I wonder why it would've been placed in the sgs3 and not the note 2

    The vibration pattern can be altered in the Handcent SMS app. To be honest the stock app never did have alot of features throughout the Galaxy range. I always use Handcent although there are others out there too.

    I use Google Voice. It doesn't have anything to alter vibration patterns or length.

    Anyone managed to find a way of getting the stock browser to resize properly as virtually every web page I go on needs to be manually resized even with the resize option checked in settings.
    A way of making it stay in desktop view by default would also be nice.

    My only complaints are stock browser doesnt resize pages as its supposed to and I find the fact that I always have to switch to desktop mode irritating, it should have a default desktop setting.

    I use Dolphin browser. Works real well and resizes. I also don't understand people who are upset about the no voice and data on 3g? It's so slow it barely does data by itself. Just pray for lte to rollout quickly. Hopefully sprint isn't sparing any expense since they're getting $20 billion from soft bank next year.

    My S pen marks (or selects) before I put it down. And no multi screen was disappointing.

    This "desktop mode" setting not working for you?
