    I got my fedex alert through handtec this morning. Estimated delivery is the 2nd. Not too shabby :)

    That's the grey 16gb unlocked model btw...

    I'm very tempted to put some money down on a note 2 from handtec and cancel my order at unlocked mobiles because both them and clove do not have the grey version till 15th oct. What's more strange though is even the official Samsung store in London have not had the grey version in yet. Yet Handtec do? once I talk to Handtec and actually 100% confirm it's the grey version I think I'll go for it there instead and cancel my other order. I'm unsure at the moment though..

    Well I certainly hope they're not playing games by saying they've got the grey model in. Not too worried though...for now...

    No, I think you're actually getting it. Perhaps Clove and the others were just not as forward planning. As for the actual Samsung store who knows. Perhaps they assumed everyone wanted only white. Please let us know when it arrives. I literally can't wait for mine

    Yea, I'm just learning there is a difference between the International ones, and the UK ones? Apparently international greys are in but no official UK ones. I'm currently having a heated exchange with the company I ordered mine from regards possible refund so I can get this one at handtec. Pretty frustrating when you have pre ordered and they say no greys in stock till the 15th yet the OP will have their one tomorrow.

    hope it all works out for you, peanuthead :)

    consulted my Korean friend earlier about the Note 2; he told me the Korean versions are usually around 11% more expensive.

    Maybe the UK versions are the branded models for each carrier?

    I got a snotty email back telling me the EU Spec and the UK one are different. When I asked what, all i seemed to be told was the power adapter was different and some "specs" lol

    They managed to convince me it's in my interest to wait for the official UK one as opposed to getting this EU one but I'm noT 100% sure exactly what the differences are and neither were they. I suppose things will be easier warranty wise?!

    The plot thickens...or not. I just want me phone lol

    Well I'm buying a sim free version, which basically means no carrier and I can go with who ever I chose. I always use this option for phones I buy. Hate being tied down.

    Your version is the European one not the UK one. But to be honest I wish I would have just ordered from Handtec like you. I'm sure the differences are minimal.

    It's worth it to have the 64GB version with LTE and that tv antenna, even if it doesn't work.

    This one is SIM free also. N7100 is the international unlocked unbranded version, no? That's what you mean by European? I didn't know there's a "UK" model as well... So that one's also SIMless and unbranded?

    Yes, the UK model Titanium Grey is the one which has been delayed for reasons unknown. Even the actual Samsung in London UK store confirmed they didnt have the T.Grey version I called them myself on the launch day.

    Also Clove UK a mobile seller company recommended by many on here also I belive Amazon UK also as well as Unlocked Mobiles where mine is orded have all confirmed there is a UK and Euro Titanium model. EU is in, the UK one isn't, only in white.

    So far the date for the UK T.Grey is Oct 15th, but no one knows why. As I said before it's a bit of a mess to be honest. I may not be apple no more, but at least you only have to wait a few days to get it after its announced and they actually had both colours at the same time. Not one two weeks (maybe longer) after the other.

    Even the UK official samsung accessories are coming at a different time lol. My accessories (unofficial) will arrive probably tommorow my 64GB SD card (unoffical) is waiting at home. It's just this confusion with the phone and when it's going to arrive that needs sorting.

    Well the UK White is out in the streets now, people have it. So the European/International version should essentially be the same as the UK white one.

    But there is a delay for the grey. Maybe something as simple as production problems.

    The official word from Samsung UK London store to me was "we don't know why it's delayed, it just is" brilliant lol

    Actually the white iPhone 4 was delayed, but not the black, due to manufacturing issues.

    Well a different wall adapter would make sense anyway. I saw one unboxing video where only a European looking charger was included...don't know which version it was though. Hopefully the "international" version will have a US compatible adapter.

    Phew got it tonight. Of course I had to work late. Gotta say this thing is frickin huge! Maybe too much so. Even coming from the GS3, another big phone, this thing is a monster. Will definitely take some getting used to. First impressions are that it's not surprisingly a nearly identical experience to the GS3. Havent used the pen much but so far I'm totally impressed with how well it handles hand writing.

    FYI handtec included an international power adapter (with a US option) since the phone only came with a European wall charger. Thought that was a nice touch by them :)

    Yeah I came from the 4.3 inch 3vo to the 5.3 inch Note and it took a little getting used to, but I doubt I'll ever go back to a 4.whatever inch screen now. It's just so handy.
