    Exactly. For sure worth the extra wait now IMO. :thumb:

    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.

    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

    I KNOW RIGHT! I had to roll my eyes lol!

    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

    Ya know if they did dual releases that day it would be a baller move. And totally feasible for them to do.

    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.

    Instead of the wedding go bust into a store a steal a few for us haha :)

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

    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

    does anyone know if the verizon Note 2 will have the global GSM bands? 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 :)
