    First customer in the door this morning at 8. Was headed back to my car by 8:15. Although I was there parked outside at 6 am. :D

    I need to go to sleep but want to keep playing on it.

    My post disappeared using Tapatalk so if you see this posted somewhere.....

    I was there parked outside at 6 am. First customer in the door this morning at 8. Was headed back to my car by 8:15.

    I need to go to sleep but want to keep playing on it.

    I hadn't thought they'd buy back my Epic 4G Touch cause of the cracked screen but they gave me $89 for it so that went towards the Note 2 bringing my cost to $210 plus tax.

    This thing is FAST!!! I am NOT feeling the quality of the S-Pen. It performs as expected but feels like a light weight toy; feels like I'm holding air. Pics give the illusion the s-pen is solid but it feels hollow to me. Not a major gripe considering I'm using it. Maybe the feel will grow on me.

    Oh and before I forget, the official Samsung case with the NFC in the battery door......well, the 3rd party cases actually look premium compared to this. If you get one (like I did), consider it the go between until you get a better case. Really, it's sole purpose is to cover the screen.

    As far as size, it's not at all huge to me considering my SGP 5.0 and Tab 2 7.0 both felt perfect. The Note 2 falls right in the middle and it's comfortable. Anyone whose has/had the 5" galaxy player should feel right at home with this puppy. It's just a tad bit thinner.

    I've only been back home a few minutes so haven't REALLY played with it enough.
    On a funny note (see what I did there) :D the 3rd customer in the door looked completely disappointed he wasn't first. He also got the white one. The 2nd customer was in a wheelchair. I could've let him go first but I DIDN'T!! :D

    Congrats. I'm jealous.

    Now Open the back cover and see if the SIM card slot is there or not.

    NO SIM card slot. Just micro SD.

    TS would you move this thread for me over to Sprint Stores still in the dark...

    Ok that confirms the SIM card issue.

    As for the move, I'll leave this here and rename it for others to post their story on getting the Note 2.

    Can anyone explain to me the significance of a lack of SIM card slot? It seems to me that US carriers are so complicated...

    CC, I answered in the thread I linked. Tapatalk kept kicking me out so I'm going to ask TS to delete this thread here and we'll just use the other one.

    TS please delete this thread. Double post.

    ScandaLeX, thanks for sharing your experience.

    Can you check yours to see if it has the split screen (multitasking) feature? I would appreciate it.

    Is that the one where you hold on the back key for multi screen? If so, nope....not there.

    I call Samsung USA to ask about the multi screen and if there would be a update. The customer service tech I spoke to said no he didn't think there would be an update and he also asked his supervisor. It looks like no multi screen for US note 2's.

    Getting used to the power button being moved down is also going to take getting adjusted too. My finger automatically reaches above the button--like I expect it to be higher up.

    Oh and anyone who has Samsung's flip cover....the screen is NOT going to turn off when you close the flap. You MUST do that yourself. A few times now I've just flipped it close then realizing after the fact I didn't turn the screen off.

    I didn't expect it too turn off the screen for anyone that ask. Just pointing out its real easy to close and forget.

    When I played with the display model last night at Sprint I decided, that since the power button was moved and in a strange place, I'd never get used to it being over there. If I was to get this phone that I would just use the 'Home' button on the front to turn it on and use an application to turn off the display using an area on touch screen, long press of a button, or something else.

    Its too bad it doesn't turn off with the flip. I won't use a flip (I'm part of the 'ditch the flip' campaign), but it is a nice feature to have. All it takes is a magnetic sensor, the Nexus 7 has a hidden one.

    The manager at Sprint told me to have a magnet in/on/near the phone can cause damage to the sd card. He also said it's the reason why devices that have a magnet don't have expandable storage.

    Now, I will admit, I don't have any idea if there's any truth to that. What I do know is I've had my GS2 and iPad 2 on my lap at the same time and nothing ever happened to my sd card.

    I was at my store at 8:50am and was first with only one other guy who came a few minutes after me. Girl at the front didn't know if they had them but the manager said they did and after going back to open the box of them he brought back my grey beauty. They only had 2 accessories, a black body glove tpu case and the oem flip case. I bought both. First impressions are like most have said this thing is blazing fast. Downloaded all my apps from appbrain in record time. Wifi is great although I did notice speeds are faster on N then G but I'll test it further once it fully charges. The sd card went in easily and thankfully isn't under the battery. Phone recognized the card on restart with no issues. I'll update further as I play with this beast.

    The reason it may take that long is because the carriers over here just want to make sure you can use their bloatware in multiview too. :p
