It would help if I could lock the screen orientation to landscape. It's still like a phone in that you can only lock it to portrait.
I activated the phone yesterday and did a speed test. Around 25 Mbps down! I'm keeping it, especially since it seems like the Nokia Lumia 900 might be delayed.
Thanks for the update 21stnow! Could you confirm your Galaxy Note can now work with 25Mbps speed? Is it the US version(i717) or the international version(N7000)? and which area you live in?
I'm thinking of buying a Samsung Note too, but only if it can be used with 4G T-mobile network.
Thanks a lot!
I should have mentioned that I am using the Galaxy Note (SGH-I717) on AT&T. It would be restricted to Edge speeds on T-Mobile.
Got it! thanks~
Whole new ball game kiddies, XDA has got the ATT branded Galaxy NOTE to work on Tmobile with 3G/4G.
I'll post a direct link to the instructions and video in the Android Dev Forum. It requires unlocking the device, which voids the warranty, so that's Dev Forum material.
I hope we see more of AT&T and T-Mobile devices working across the two networks.
Ok, I don't get it.
Elephants now have access to the Note, but not tmobile customers?
I just bought the GT -N7000 and the size is perfect for me! I also have the sgs2 and holding it after using the note for a while is so weird, it feels like I'm holding the tiny, puny iPhone! I always said that if they made a Tablet that was also a phone I would be in heaven! And I so am with this note.
I forgot to mention that the screen on the note blows the sgs2 screen away.. ...the note is just so much more brilliant, colors are more true, it's just a breathtaking display. To me the sgs2 and the note are completely different. I don't feel like I have two of the same phone....and the s -pen is just so cool! Anyone on the fence about the note, get it ! Yes you'll only get 2g but honestly, its not that bad. I don't know why or if it's just my area, but 2g is fast, almost as fast as 4g......but my 2g has always been like that. When I owned the vibrant I would always use 2g, people thought I was nuts. ....but there really wasn't a difference between 2g and 3g. So don't let only having 2g deter you from getting this beast!
Look at you Lolita! You're changing phones about as often as I am.
You have it too 21St? Do you love it? I still have the sensation too.. ..
I don't know how I feel about this phone. At times, I'm fascinated with it. At other times, I miss my iPhone on that account. I was trying to resist the Nokia Lumia 900, but if that phone works better for me than the Note, I may switch.
I unlocked and rooted today. Now, I have to figure out if I want to flash the T-Mobile high-speed data radio.
I bought the international one, the GT-N7000, in white :) So it was already unlocked. My 2g speeds are not the bad, they are actually surprisingly really fast. The only thing I'm having trouble with is setting screen #4 as my home screen.. ..screen #1 is the home screen and I have found no way top change this. It also causes problems with wallpaper because its not centered. Other than that I love this phone.. ...the screen blows away the screen on the sgs2, imo anyway.
Actually, I do have another issue with my note, the app draw. I have to option to put my apps in alphabetical order, as they are now they are all over the place, the apps that begin with A are next to ones that start with H and H is next to ones that start with N...no order what so ever. BUT if I change the apps from grid to list view then they are arranged in alphabetical order. Problem with that is you can't see as many apps as you would if you had it in grid view, you have to scroll more in list view. Other than that, oh, and Facebook not loading in the default browser, all I get is "loading", it never brings up the page. I wish I could find one of those oem flip covers that they have for the at$t version in white....can't find the one for the n7000 anywhere...expansy supposedly had them but I don't see it on their website. Other than that I'm in love with this beast!
21st....was it easy to do the "R" word? ;) Just as easy as the vibrant?
