    Default Galaxy Note 10.1: My baby arrived last night 😊

    I have been contributing to this forum for a couple of weeks now and I finally received my baby... Black SM-P605 LTE 32GB and I could not be happier. Let me start by saying this is a great forum and I have enjoyed interacting with many of you... a really great bunch 😊 I started setting it up last night and it took a while to get all my Google stuff/apps synced... bunch of 920 errors but I finally got it all sorted.TW was a tad laggy when I first set up but I switched to Nova right away and all is smooth now. I have enabled the Developer options, turned off Samsung Push Services and S Voice, enabled Flash... did I leave out any steps to optimize my setup ? I was not able to turn off or disable My Magazine... guess you have to root for that ? I'm sure that I'll have questions by the weekend when I'll have more time to play around with it 😊

    In Canada, they were only selling the white 32gb WiFi tabs and here in Montreal it was almost impossible to find any available units... I really wanted the black LTE version so I had no choice but to pay an arm and a leg on ebay 😊 I got the 2 year Square Trade warranty so I'm all set 😆

    Sounds like you are off to a great, and well thought out start. Did you turn off the animations, after enabling dev options? You say you got the LTE one, wilI you set that up with a carrier, it just use the wifi?

    I'm really happy for you, after waiting on the sidelines to finally be officially IN the club. I can't wait to hear all the new fun you find to have with this very cool piece of technology.

    :-D

    Thanks I didn't touch the animations to be honest... not exactly sure what to adjust and by how much... haven't really noticed any real lag yet with Nova so not sure if it's even necessary ! I got the LTE unlocked version so that when I go on vacation, I can just buy a local prepaid sim card for voice and data. I set up the phone part (contacts etc) by swapping out my S4's sim card... I put it back in my phone and now the tablet just shows the SIM card missing symbol at the top. I am still a novice at all this actually... how do I know if I have the latest update ? Do I look at the Baseband or the Build Number ? The baseband ends in MJ4 and the build number ends in MJ6 and I know my tablet was shipped here from Hong Kong. I still can't set the English (US) keyboard as the default... the Chinese one was on there initially. I switched it to the Samsung keyboard in English so I'm all good. I only had one small update when I first turned on my machine. I'll probably pester you this weekend with some more questions

    Go to Settings, > General > Security and make sure down load from other sources is enabled

    download this file:
    install_flash_player_ics (19).apk - 4.49 MB

    find the downloaded file in a file manager, My Files comes on the tablet, and tap it to install

    install Firefox (or whatever other browser that supports flash)

    in the browser settings, enable Flash

    That should do it

    Clicking that link brought me to something called an iLivid download, although it at first looked like the apk. I mistakenly installed iLivid--which I sure didn't want to do. Is there a way to get just to the APK file?

    Hi... when you click on the link it brings you to the download page filled with a few ad-spam download buttons... you need to click on the second Download button, the one directly above the green arrow. That should get you the proper file loaded onto your device.

    Ya those file repository sites can be tricky. Just read the screens carefull to just get the file. May be easier on a PC, to right click download, then just copy the file to the tablet

    I'm still amazed at all the things you can do on this baby I mean split screen Facebook and Maps plus one pen window playing a live news video via the browser and another pen window with the YouTube app broadcasting a video to my paired Smart LG TV !
    I tried to impress my coworkers today by offering to take the notes at our weekly meeting. I used S Note for the first time and I was able to handwrite all the meeting minutes... it was so easy to write on it ! I bragged that I would convert it to text and email them a PDF lol I think I spoke to quickly When I converted the text (a few lines at a time) it was hit and miss where I didn't form my letters fully... problem was that when it converted, it placed blocks of text on my page that were not exactly aligned with the margin of the page so it looked like I typed something with an epileptic typewriter. It was impossible to quickly fix up the text into well spaced paragraphs so I gave up and typed up the minutes on my PC. But it was a decent first attempt. I might try something like LectureNotes... anybody here use that ? Galaxy Note 10.1: My baby arrived last night 😊-2014-01-14-19-36-04.jpg

    Well other than the hand writing thing, isn't it fun, awesome, amazing, to be able to manipulate all the windows? True multitasking on a tablet Take that, iPad! *snicker snicker* ;-)

    I love how I can edit and update webpages for clients, on the fly, and so many other things.

    So glad you are enjoying it.

    Already said this in another thread. Make sure you register the product. Many free things come along with it. As in, 25 dollars for Google play store, 50 dollars to Samsung app store, 50GB for two years with dropbox, hull plus for three months free, and a few other things. Welcome to the forums. I`m new too

    Thanks Unfortunately, aside from Dropbox, all the other free goodies are only available in the US.
    Even if we were willing to pay, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, HBO Go or any other decent streaming service are not available in Canada.
    Even our version of Netflix is watered down with a lot of missing content. Our Smart TV's come preloaded with the Weather Network, Crackle, Facebook, Netflix and a few other useless streaming services. I didn't mean to turn my reply into a rant but it sucks to be a Canuck sometimes lol

    Have you tried writing your meeting notes with the handwriting to text feature on your keyboard? This converts your handwriting as you write, it is less cumbersome than doing it afterwards.

    Hi, I did test that out and I found that it is too slow when it converts it as you write... when it messes up and then you have to go back to correct it you are already way behind if you are trying to take the minutes at a fast paced meeting. Thanks for the suggestion though

    There are apparently some jurisdictional issues involving IP rights, but for instance, when I go to Europe, I can't get Netflix to stream anything. Not permitted in the area. I can't even go directly to, say, ABC or whatever. That won't work either. I have a friend who uses proxy software like Hotspot Shield to set a different IP address. She says that works. I usually don't have time anyway.

    The only "free benefit" that I cared about coming with this tablet was the Google Play credit. That I can find a way to use. Most of the other things just looked like "come-ons." "Free" dropbox? Or, in other words, a way to get sucked into a program for 2 years and then have to pay? I have other cloud storage programs that provide adequate space for free.

    The only free thing I was interested in was the Google Play credits and unfortunately, we don't qualify.
    It most definitely is a question of IP rights, yet it's a ridiculous situation.
    The majority of Canadians all have the major US networks in their cable lineup so we consume the exact same content as our neighbors to the south at the exact same time as them, yet when it comes to streaming services that we are willing to pay for, it's a no-go. Same with movies... theatrical releases are at the exact same time as in the US.
    It makes no sense.. It's not like Europe with different time zones, cultures and languages.

    I would go further, though. It's a Brave New World. The internet has created a very new world. I go over to Europe, I pull out Google Maps and ....gasp....doesn't work at first. Suddenly, I have no data plan because roaming costs are so ridiculously high and the 1st time you use GM in a new place, you need some downloads of maps (thereafter, it works fine on GPS, no data). This is absurd. (I hear T-Mobile has a new plan that may address some of these issues.) Ditto for movies.

    The world is getting smaller. The internet is a reason why. Adjustments still to come, I guess.
