    Default Which features will Verizon block on the Note 3?

    On the galaxy Note 2 verizon blocked out some features that worked with other carriers, like the 4x4 Splanner widget, blocking mode, etc. I want to get the Note 3, but tired of Verizon and the BS. Wonder why Verizon is releasing there phone later, and wondering is it so they can strip it.

    That would be my guess (Verizon is taking time to make sure its bloat is installed and features blocked) I have had my fill of that yesterday bought two s4's and pre-ordered the note 3 on ATT, downgraded my smartphones on Verizon to feature phones till they run out of contract.

    I think I am just gonna wait until my contract is up and get a newer note from AT&T instead, maybe a Note 4. Ha!

    Don't get too bummed yet, the phone's not out yet. Verizon may use this launch to change their ways.

    Live long and prosper.

    The note 2 was locked down from Verizon. Non continuous scroll home screens, app drawer, no wifi toggle on drop down menu, and yes the 4x4 s planner widget was removed completely. Only was to have it back was to root.

    What benefit did Verizon have by doing this? I've had to use third party apps to get these features back. Has me puzzled.

    If they block or take out anything I'll return mine and cancel my number and go somewhere else. I bought my phone as its setup from Samsung.

    This is one of the reasons I'm leaving Verizon for AT&T. More freedom with my phones. Yeah I'm giving up unlimited but I only use maybe 2 gigs between my son and I anyway.

    Verizon seems to take longer to release due to the things you said.. Locking down the phone and loading up that bloat ware.

    If the Note 3 has an FM radio, I am sure Verizon will block it. They did on the Note 2 from what I have read. Why would they do that? So they can sell you data when listening to radio on the Internet instead of on a free FM station.

    I wonder if its a Samsung thing. Verizon by default out of the box did disable continuous home screen and the wifi toggle on the lg G2. Whether it was missed or just not as locked down, those options were readily available to toggle on in settings. Gives me a little hope they know leave our note 3 alone. They at least agreed to not out their logo on the home button! Baby steps.

    I have my note 2 with a new rom so these features are present but curious what 3rd party app you used. Was this after root?

    Given the high degree of certainty that GN3 will have a very locked down bootloader custom ROMs will be hard to come by to help us address any features that are removed. I do hope a method is found and we can get things fixed quickly.

    It's not a Samsung thing. When all other carriers have a feature on the phone and only only the Verizon version doesn't.. It's kind of obvious.

    Just can't comprehend the logic behind disabling screen scroll and removing a wifi toggle. I guess they could be hoping people aren't smart enough to download a wifi widget so they are stuck using data. Shame they have best speed and coverage here in Arizona. Jenks.

    I defend Verizon most cases... But this is one area i agree with.... I think they do it to make room for bloat... They put the most bloat on their phones, so they probably look at little things they can remove to give them a couple hundred MB to put their bloat on.. I couldn't see them doing it just because..

    Just an educated guess.

    I know the removed the call blocker, because they have their own pay for service. People rumored that the remove of WiFi toggle was to consumers use more data. I think most people just did like the persistent notification.

    Actually call blocking is a free service on Verizon, but you can only block up to 5 phone numbers at a time but you can do it across all of your mobile #'s. I had to do it once and it was quite effective.

    im really hoping the 4x4 calender widget comes back i loved it on my s3 then on the note 2 it was gone. i use my phone to run my two businesses and have two email accounts and spend 3 hours or more on the phone . not to mention all the texts and emails. I really feel the note series of phones are the best device for what i do and it bothers the crap out of me that verizon screws with functions.
