    Hey all!

    I have been thinking about getting the Note 2 for a few days now and today I finally got it. I sold my Galaxy S3 and went to the TMobile store. They had a promotion going with accessories, buy 2 get 1 free. So, I bought the Incipio book style case, screen protector and memory card.

    I just got home with it and have been playing around with it. I will take a look through this forum to find out more cool things about this phone.

    However, if anyone can link me to some good threads, please do!

    I have seen in a few places, that when using the Samsung keyboard and S Pen, a ox will pop up so you can write with the S Pen for texting. I can't find out how to do this though.

    Can someone help!

    Also, how do I run 2 apps at once?

    You have to enable "detect spen" is your keyboard settings for it to show the handwriting box.

    If you long press the back button you will see a blue oval tab on the right side with your multifunction apps. Long press the back button to hide the feature when you don't need it.

    The multi Window is not working for me. What steps do I need to do to get it to work?

    that will have to come with the 4.1.2 update... if your jelly bean is still 4.1.1 you wont be able to use multi screen

    update seemed to have just rolled out this month... some already got it, but i didnt.... hope we get it soon!! :)

    Also, after updating, I notice that in the browser I can no longer zoom in/out by sliding the side of the screen.

    Did they get this of that feature?

    I updated my phone this morning, however it still says I have 4.1.1.

    The weird thing is, I was able to use the multi window feature this morning, now I can't.

    It's in the drop down settings when you swype down to access your settings it'll be the last option in the right hand corner.

    Doesn't work for me.

    When I long press the back button, I see the tray pop up. If I'm in an app and click another from the tray, it just jumps to that one.

    I got it to work.

    While in one app, I long pressed the back button to pop up the side bar. I then dragged another app onto the screen and that gave me the multi window feature.

    Thanks for all the help.
