    Hi there. I have had my galaxy note 2 for a week now having been an iphone user for 5 years and absolutely love it. The screen is amazing and its great not being locked down to apple's way of doing things. However, I do have a couple of transition questions. So, here goes:

    1) On the iphone, notifications used to pop up on the lock screen and you could respond by swiping or unlock for further options. Is this possible on the note 2?

    2) again, on the iphone you could adjust what apps give you what type of notifications and what sounds they give (eg sound and notification bar for yahoo mail, no sound but notification for facebook etc etc). Can't seem to do this on the note 2?

    3) I have a couple of emulators (bought and paid for) and have been able to put some roms on the phone and play them ok. However, when i put the games on the external sd card and try and navigate to them all that appears in the folder view is MSYNC. However I can get hold of music and videos on the sd card fine. Can i use an emulator with games on an external sd card? Or do they have to be in the same place. Better still, can I put the emulator on an SD card? My phone will fill up quite quickly!

    4) when i put my earphones in, this samsung song plays all the time. I can't find a default setting to get it to stop.

    I'm happy to download apps to get any of the above to work.

    Thanks!

    Steve

    Hi Steve, i can help with the first question...

    1). GoSms IM will give you that option to preview a notification....downloaded from the Play Store, it even has an Iphone theme :)

    it also gives you the option to set it for privacy mode, you will get a notificatipon window but you can only read it by opening it...pretty clever

    2. For the notifications it's all specific to the particular app. Facebook has it's own notification settings and there you can tell it to not play a sound or whatever you prefer. The same goes for your email or texts or whatever.
