This is the first time I've every used this method of communcation. I just wanted to know if anyone has any idea, if the Samsung Galaxy Note would/could ever be made available to T-mobile customers?
I apologize if I'm in the wrong area but did only have that one question
If it is unlocked to be used with any carrier's SIM, you will be able to use it on the T-Mobile network, but may only be able to get 2G data speeds.
Hello Alicia and thank you for taking the time to reply. I have heard about unlocked phones but was just wondering if T-mobile planned to make the Note available on their network (or has anyone heard any talk about it), so that we would have full use of the Note (i.e.calls, 4G,etc). I am just learning about Smartphones and how they work. I've heard that it's the antenna inside the phones (or something of that nature) and/or the Sim cards, that makes them able to work on certain networks. I guess what I meant to ask was, is it at all possible for Samsung to make this phone 100% functional on the T-mobile network? I love the Samsung Galaxy Note but don't know if I'd pay that much money for a phone that I couldn't get full use out of. If it became available through TMO, I would most certainaly make this my next phone. I'm sorry if I wasn't clear on my question.
Alicia's response says the AT&T version will 70% work with T-Mobile (provided it's Unlocked). The only piece missing would be 3G/4G. It's similar to people who are bringing iPhones from AT&T over to T-Mobile.
There has been no announcements made that T-Mobile will carry it. I, personally, haven't even heard anything underground yet (and a friend of mine REALLY wants it and she's on T-Mobile).
Thank you for the answer smplyunprdctble and that is basically I wanted to know. Alicia also answered my question as far as using ATT's version on TMO. Now I know that if I really want to, I could use an unlocked Note but wouldn't have full functionality of it. I had gotten myself and my family the HTC Sensations shortly after they came out last summer. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE our phones and have had no problems with them. They were our first smartphones and we all had ours completely programmed and customized within 48 hours. I really thought it would be more complicated but was pleasantly surprised at the ease of use and how quickly we made our Sensations our own. Since this past summer, I've been constantly researching phones, checking out new upcoming phones, just for the fun of it and it becomes addicting. I do a lot of reading so that I don't have to ask so many questions on the forums. Yet, I do still have a couple of questions that I will ask at a later time, if I can't find the answers through research. Thank you again for taking the time to answer my question.
Accutally the AT&T modle (i717) antena is penta-band and is only software locked to prevnt you from using anyones 3g or better other then AT&T. Howevr if you are willing to root the divice it is easaly fixable. XD 3g/4g works great on T-moble.
The original Internatinal version (N7000) dose not work with T-mobile, only the AT&T modle (i717)
To make it more fun, http://1saleaday.com/wireless/ has the Note available TODAY Unlocked for I think 580.
But, that's a today only deal and is subject to quantities available.
Thank you neoterra. I've never tried to root a phone (not that knowledgable in that area) and I would be reluctant to try it or have someone root it for me because of the simple fact that it would void the warrantee. I would be worried that if something did happen to a rooted Note, I wouldn't be able to get it repaired or replaced. That's why I was hoping that someone may have heard of it coming to T-moble. Then I'd be able to purchase a new Note, have the warrantee and enjoy all of the features of the phone (calls, 3/4G, etc.).
Thanks again through, for replying...I'll just keep my fingers crossed and my eyes open, in hopes that it comes to TMO.
Retrieving data ...
