    I would rather at&t test the update properly before releasing a firmware or update that bricks my $800 phone/phablet.

    Blaming at&t won't get it here any quicker. Besides, as we see, there are a lot of carriers that seem to not have the update.

    When sprint put out their update for the note, there were some issues with it.

    AT&T put out an update that adds this feature this past Saturday (12/29).

    I think there is a misunderstanding here: only those apps that are listed on the multi-window popout menu will work as advertised. Those applications not on that tablet cannot do multi-window. Mine came with only Internet, Email, Polaris Office, S-Note, Messaging, and Gallery available. The cool videos of people taking notes while on the phone don't apply.

    Oh, and Gmail isn't included.

    Or, at least that is what's happening to me.

    Same here, I am in Toronto Canada and I have the NOTE 2 which i purchased outright for $800+ so its apparently unlocked but i am with Mobilicity and I don't have this feature yet either. Sill on 4.1.1




    Can someone confirm it is up to the Carrier to add this, not Samsung? If so I will get on to my carrier....

    All I know is that it isn't included in the earlier builds of 4.1.1

    I'm on a UK unbranded though so I'm not sure if it makes a difference with American branded phones. If you really need it right now then you can root your device and flash a stock 4.1.2 rom or a later 4.1.1 rom.

    I turned multi-window off because of this. I don't use the stock messaging application and only video applications I use are Netflix and YouTube. I use Google Chrome rather than the default browser so that messes me up too. A useful tool that's severely locked down by the carrier.

    Don't blame the carriers. All an app needs to appear in that list is a flag set indicating compatibility at the time the app is built. That's up to the developer. Quite a few apps have been updated recently just for that.

    Fortunate enough for me, I rooted and have all apps in multi window... only issue is some WILL NOT work that way. I'm still weeding through them.

    Drag the shortcut from the home screen. Drag down the top bar and scroll to the last and check Multi Window is turned on. If it is off turn on and try pressing the back button you can access Multi window.
