phone without stylus, andc continuous flashing display
8 October 2013
Summary: I ordered this phone through Tablet Distributors. I got the phone on October 7 2013. Upon opening the phone, I noticed that the phone came without the stylus. how upsetting. the phone was sealed, but upon opening the device, the phone looked dirty and tampered with. I contacted Amazon and the told me that they will refund part of my money because the phone did not come with a stylus pen.
Summary: I ordered this phone expecting to have a great experience with it, but as soon as I received it and inserted my att go phone sims card in it, it said no registered network....It won't let me make phone calls or anything! I'm really upset with this problem. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this is happening??? I know that my sims card works because it was working perfectly fine in my other phone and the Note is supposedly suppose to be unlocked..
Summary: Received absolutely brand new phone from seller "Wireless Extra". This phone is unlocked as described. And the screen is huge, sharp and clear. HD movies play beautifully. Came with the latest Jellybean 4.1.2 installed, awesome! Yes, for many of you who wanted a prepaid phone, it works for Straight Talk (AT&T Sim Card) and T-Mobile. I tried on both networks and all have 4G LTE speed. Great I ditched my Sprint and go for prepaid plan, saving lots of money.
Summary: I ordered SGH I717 on Sept 3rd. Got it Sept 13th. I'm a T-Mobile customer and i was looking for a device that would work on T-Mobile (Re-farmed) 1900mhz 3G Network & LTE 1700/2100 mhz When i looked at the bands this device supports it was a match. So i purchased this device. Shipped with Android 4.0 i updated it to 4.1 through Samsung Kies on my laptop. I live in Columbia, SC and T-Mobile has been refarming the 1900mhz for 3G so unlocked AT&T devices can have 3G/HSPA.
Summary: Phone got here quickly, in good shape and was new. I purchased it from Top 10 cells and, as promised, it was carrier unlocked. I am a T-mobile user and had written down all the apn information expecting to have to set up data access, voice mail and so forth, but nope, as soon as I inserted the SIM it realized it was T-mobile and automatically set those functions up.
Summary: Pros: Note has great screen, really nice colors, Super Amoled really shows off the difference. Phone is great for those people who want something between the regular smartphone and a small tablet. Battery can last one day of moderate usage. Cons: Software that came pre-installed is awful. Note is lagging, constantly running out of memory, applications randomly closing or taking MINUTES to start up (yes, minutes). I would try some custom roms.
