    Well I could not hold out any longer so I went ahead a purchased a Samsung Note from ebay for 700.00 unlocked of course... Ive always been a Apple type person but I really think this phone is gonna blow any Apple device out of the water. I know the HSPA+ and 3G network will only work on the Note but its no big deal to me...

    I have a few questions, when ICS software does land on the note how will I be able to download the new software? Will I have to wait till ATT releases the update or will I have to update a different way since its unlocked???

    I'm coming from an iPhone 4S so i know I'm gonna need a new sim card... If there is any other things I need to know please let a brotha know :)

    opinion: if i wanna sell the note later, will the note be more desirable being unlocked?

    congrats i was ready to do that too untill i got scared away from doing it i was told you couldn't get any insurance for it or it wouldn't have LTE also i think you have to order a adapter for the charger not that its a big deal you should do a review once you get it you are very lucky cheers!!!

    Update from At&t will only be for "At&t branded" phones. Update(s) for unlocked phones will come from Sammy, or google.

    Updates such as...? If there are any "carrier specific" updates for a "carrier branded phone", they would not be applicable to an unlocked/non-carrier branded phone. Much like an At&t branded update for "their Note" would not apply to a "Rogers" or "Telus" branded Note.

    I have been charging my Note with my blackberry charger (with micro USB tip) for the last 2 weeks with no problems. BB charger is 5 voltes, 700 mA.

    The original charger for the Note is 5 volt, 1 amp.
