    Which, Webb3201, is why I'm still attached to the IPad. I'm wanting to fully embrace the SPen and all it can do, which I'm still not sure what that is! I sold my IPhone 4S back to Verizon and used that $$ to get the Note 2. I don't miss it since Siri and I still talk on the IPad. I have noticed the SVoice seems to be more "knowledgeable" than Siri, but I won't tell her!

    Welcome to Android! The Note 2 is an amazing phone. I love my N4, but your Note 2 can do so many cool things.

    I was just wondering if using a launcher on the N2 affects some of the special functions of the phone, ie split screen.

    The formating issue I stated above with the card. It keeps asking for a pin to confirm the process. But the card seems to work formatted on my mac with exfat. I read fat32 wasn't good when transferring larger files.

    Third party launchers do not have any effect on the Note functions like multi view, S-Pen, etc.

    Have you tried formatting the card once loaded on your Note? My guess is you should be fine and the "pin" requirement will go away, but I've never experienced that issue.

    That is correct! Maximum file size for fat32 file systems is 4gb. Stick with exfat for larger file sizes!

    Maybe it was encrypted before? I can't comment towards fat32 being better or worse though.

    I don't think it was encrypted because I was using it as just a backup for files. Since it's working in the phone I won't worry too much.

    Tomorrow I'm picking up the white model for my wife. She is trading her iphone 4 in.

    I have spent the past two years sim swapping iPhones and Androids. Last year it was a 4s and a Galaxy Nexus, this year a Note2 and iPhone 5. I normally go about 2 weeks before I miss something in the alternate platform and switch over. Welcome to the Android side.
    I recently switched to the Galaxy Note 2 from an iPhone 5. I attempted my first sim swap and what an experience I endured with Verizon. My plan changed from
    unlimited to 2 gigs for data. There is no way that when I switched sim #'s, that their computer system acknowledge the plan I have which is unlimited. I have now decided, give it up and let go lollll I am in heaven with my Note 2 and don't miss the iphone at all. I had to jailbreak my iphone (4S) to be able to have some customization and it doesn't even come close to the android and now the jailbreak team is having a run for their money trying to jb the most recent IOS. Since I have had my Note 2, lollll I have not put it down. Have even gone to bed late cuz I feel like a little kid in a big candy store
    I'm sorry for the apple devoted folks but apple just does not do it for me and actually never did. I am now going to find a buyer for my iphone and let go ;D My iPad 2 is jailbroken and now I am complete
    Thanks for reading and back to my Note 2 (learning it as well) ;D ;D

    I just picked up my wife's white model today. She loves it and traded her iphone 4 in. ios is great for many but I suspect they don't know what they're missing with the current android os.

    I'll give Apple that positive. Nothing else.

    Android/Samsung needs to totally revamp the sms application. Hell even buy out WhatsApp and integrate into the native sms

    Apple TV is a plus too. Google needs to prioritize the Nexus Q and Google TV.

    They are expensive but I don't buy laptops very often so it doesn't bother me to spend more and I don't game much so that aspect doesn't matter to me. I love how everything works out of the box because everything is made by apple or pretty much everything. The battery life is amazing, its absurdly sexy, I've never had a mechanical problem with them and thats the difference plus I ing HATE windows 8 that is the dumbest I have ever used. If I was on a tablet it would be awesome, not so much on a laptop.

    Also I equate buying a macbook pro to buying the latest android phone the day it comes out instead of a comparable phone mainly because its new and cool. They are just so sexy lol and if I have the cash thats what I'm getting lol

    I don't hate windows 8 but I'm not a fan of the metro app drawer thing. I added the start menu back in and the os works great. Boots fast and runs faster than win 7, but the overall differences are minor.

    Vista was not delivered well. Win 7 and 8 are much better. They never crash and run well for the most part. Much better than XP or Vista.

    No but I was afraid it didn't. Its an endearing trait. Actually ideally I'd have my macbook for school, work etc and a windows computer for gaming, trying new things etc. I actually liked XP

    My laptop boots win 7 in less than a minute... So I don't have that problem.

    I'm never upgrading. My mom has a desktop with 8 and I despise it.

    But then again, I mainly use ubuntu so...
