Samsung Galaxy Note 2

Previously, we reported that T-Mobile had announced that they would be getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the WP8-powered HTC Phone 8X as part of their line-up. Now, we’ve got confirmation from Samsung that AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and US Cellular are also getting the Samsung Galaxy Note 2.

Samsung Galaxy Note 2

CNET Reports:

“The Korea-based manufacturer announced today that it will kick off the 5.5-inch¬†Android¬†4.1 Jelly Bean ‘phablet,’ a smartphone with tabletlike proportions, on the same five carriers that initially offered the Galaxy S3 this summer. Moreover, the smartphone will carry Samsung’s 1.6 GHz Exynos processor. “

While it’s not surprising that all five major carriers decided to get the Samsung Galaxy Note 2, especially considering how successful the original Galaxy Note ended up becoming, what’s surprising is that US Cellular will be the first to sell the Galaxy Note 2:

“U.S. Cellular announced that it will sell the 16GB titanium gray color in late October for $299.99 — for those who preorder the device. It will cost $299.99 after a $100 mail-in rebate after the Note 2 arrives in stores.”

Sprint confirmed that it will carry both gray and white variants but it has yet to reveal price specifications and the exact date when it will make the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 available to its subscribers.

AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon have not given any details about their plans for the exciting new phablet from Samsung but they are expected to give official statements within the coming weeks. The three carriers will make the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 available to the public by mid-November, based on insider rumors.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 2 will come with a 5.5 inch Super AMOLED display, a monstrous 1.6 GHz Exynos processor, 2 GB RAM, an 8 MP camera, NFC connectivity and run Android 4.1 Jelly bean out of the box. It will also come with Samsung’s trademark S-Pen stylus.

Now that it’s confirmed all carriers will make the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 available, which one will you go with? Share your thoughts in the comments below!

  1. I wonder why would anyone buy a 3g phone today. That’s what you will get if you buy the Note II from Sprint in most markets. The Note II is not set up to work on Sprint’s Wi-Max 4g network and Sprint is way behind in the 4g lte market I am a sprint customer since nextel and wish I could stay with them.

  2. I too am currently with Sprint, but because they are so far behind with there LTE network I will be leaving them in November! The Wi-Max/4G was a scam in my opinion. It was a way for them to raise rates. Why pay for something you can’t use. I read that Verizon will have LTE in 32 more cities before the year end. Sprint will probably only be approaching that number after two years.. I used to really like Sprint, and the only reason why I’m with still with them is the unlimited data plan and because I have been waiting on the Note 2.

  3. This will be my next phone and I’ll be staying with TMO. I’ve got fast speeds, good call quality and I can’t beat the rates, considering I’ve got five lines!

  4. Where I lived in Raleigh NC I had great TMo & in in Denver CO I had
    great TMo coverage. Here in Orange County NY I have the worst coverage
    to No and I mean NO coverage with Tmo. If I am not on wifi I can’t use
    my phone. I love T-mobile and I want to stay with them if for nothing
    else because of the way I am treated. They have hands down the best
    customer service, but there is just no point when I can’t even use my
    phone. They seem to have no intentions of fixing that issue in the near
    future which leaves me stuck having to choose between AT&T or
    Verizon. AT&T is spotty coverage at best where I am. I HATE Verizon
    and am not too encouraged about AT&T. Whats a person to do though.
    My contract is up with Tmo. I have been waiting for this phone to hit
    the carriers to see who is doing what, waiting to see if Tmo is gonna
    make a move and improve in this area. Tmo has until this phone comes to
    the US to do something in this area, for me to stay with them. Its a
    shame Verizon is the big school bully and gets to rule the playground. I
    am so tired of it.
    I buy the phone, I pay the bill. I should get to have it the way I want it. What happened to the customers always right?
    I
    feel I get that kind of great service with T-mobile…Which is why I
    left Verizon all those years ago. I hate the idea I have to go back now.

  5. Does U.S. Cellular have the customer base to launch a new device of this magnitude? Or are they likely to gain a larger piece of the smartphone user market with this decision? It’s quite a leap for them to be the launch company.

  6. that is the best news that sprint is bringing on the note… i have considered leaving sprint because they do not carry the note willing to pay a higher plan now i dont have to…. this has just made my day…i am always on the move and i dont use my computer as much as i use the internet on my phone.. i enjoy samsung products i enjoy the larger phones..

  7. I have the original note from At&t and I love it and it’s coverage. This would be the best network to go with if you are concerned about internet connection and reception. Operating under 4G LTE makes it the best!!!

  8. I can’t blame you, I am from NY and have family in Upstate NY. Apparently Edge-2G at best for Data coverage and like you say, if you don’t have WiFi, you can barely use your phone. I too am a former Verizon customer, got away from them a few years ago. I agree with you about TMO’s customer service, I can’t complain because they’ve been good to me over the years. I don’t know what I would do if I had to move back to NY because I wouldn’t want to go back to Verizon so the only other option would be AT&T.

  9. My mother is always calling to remind that its getting closer to the date. shes excited herself to see the phone in my hands. lol. she cant believe how big the phone is. ive been with tmobile since i was just a child starting with my first phone that was on the kid connect plan only then as i became a teen i got to test out the grandfather of all androids the G1 i couldnt believe my eyes! it was the most amazing thing ever not even running on 2.0 everyday it was just my G1 and me i even had a dream that we were holding hands and skipping through a flower field lol. and now were on 4.1 jelly bean WOW! i just cant wait to skip in a flower field with my note 2. Android makes a difference on its updates.(Apple not so much…no offence apple but for me the ipod was enough and i dont even use it anymore i use my android powered phone) C=

  10. they offer signal booster for free, give it a try, i work for tmo and i have 3 lines in NYC and its just great i love it

  11. I wonder if international unlocked version of Galaxy Note 2 will work with AT&T LTE bands.
