Note 2 Issues - Storage & more
I purchased what was advertised as a new Note 2 n7100 off of eBay as my s3 took an unfortunate slip on ice into a slush puddle... Anyways I was excited when i received the phone today until I turned it on. I immediately noticed that it did not have the normal Samsung Galaxy start up screen. Upon it booting, I noticed the apps root explorer and super user were installed. I looked further and noticed that the serial number reads 0123456789abcdef. I have had rooted phones before and that didn't bother me. I put in my sim and it appeared that the phone would work enough to get me through the end of my contract until I get an "upgrade" from my service provider...
Now the problems start:
1) the battery compartment lists the phone as a gt-n7100, but in the "about phone" it says gt-n7102. Why/how does this happen?
2) I downloaded about 12 apps, (games, weatherbug, drop box totaling 431 mb, but now the phone alerts there is insufficient space to download any more apps and it shows only 45.41 mb available. Unfortunately there is not more of a breakdown under storage except the total space being 12.0 gb, apps 431 mb and available space 45.41 for the internal memory. Any ideas on what I can do? I've contacted the seller to see what they plan to do, but if simply putting this back to stock will help and it is relatively easy I'd try that.
Again any help/ideas are appreciated... I have flashed using Odin, but beyond that have not done much more.
Thanks in advance!
