    Not on the AT&T version, At 2:49 on this video: SAMSUNG GALAXY NOTE 2 - New Features 4.1.2 JELLY BEAN - YouTube you can see the international version has an extra "Notifaction panel" menu option under the display settings. That is a bummer

    That's disappointing. I really wanted to add the data toggle like it was with my old s3. *sigh*.. :sly:

    I have updated it and love the split screen. Very simple to use as well. Although I am new to Android and Samsung phones, I love the Note 2 so far.

    I have my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in an Otterbox Case that just came out for it. Best protection ever, IMO only.
    Where did you get the otterbox for it and how much roughly was it?

    I hear AT&T has Otterbox on sale and Amazon.com always has good prices on them..25-50% off the full retail price.

    Found out from the ATT Tech, that the update is being released by the phone serial number. As it was explained to me, the reason is that ATT does not want server overload. So he asked me to be patient and it will come to my phone. Anycase I'm still enjoying my Note 2.
    Right. This is what many of us figured long ago, when the complaints started to roll-in.

    But, interesting that you found out that it was by serial number...as opposed to region/location or some other method. I guess that is one way to do it. I got my update the first time I tried on the first day.

    Serial starts with R21CA5xxxxx

    Changin the date 1 day ahead so trick the phone of the date and then checking the update button and it should show a blue and red arrow in your notifications bar.

    My serial number begins with those number/letter combos as well and I bought mine release day and I didn't get it and chose to manually download mine. So, I'm not sure I buy the statement of AT&T by serial number and I'm on the East Coast. I think it is being staggered, but don't think there is any rhyme or reason to how it is coming across.

    Hi everyone! Tezz, do not forward clock. You will wind up delaying by the number of hours you push your clock ahead. The Otterbox Case I got for $50 at the AT&T store. Tezz, manual update is downloading the update to your phone through a file you got from another place, and taking it from there.

    Hey Y'all, a quick update on my *update*

    Background - I have an AT&T Note 2, unlocked it and am currently using it on holidays in canadia

    On the 27th, could not get the update, so forwarded my date by a few days. I do not have my SD card with me so I decided to wait it out. Just an hour ago my wait was over and I tried to update (OTA) my software, and was told to wait another 48 hours.......will be looking into the manual update once I get home, this is redonkulous!

    Download the file in this post: xda-developers - View Single Post - AT&T to release OTA update on Dec. 27 to enable Multi-Window on Note II

    Rename it to update.zip
    BACKUP YOUR PHONE, doing this will wipe your phone and internal memory card (to backup check out my post here)
    Copy the file to your phone's external sdcard
    Reboot into recovery (turn phone off, press volume up, center button and power)
    Install update from external sdcard
    Walk away from your phone for 15 minutes
    Spend some time re-setting your phone back up.

    I did it this way and it worked perfectly!!!

    Nice that they re-posted it! I thought it had been taken down. Too bad we didn't get ALL the features like the international version did. Especially modifying the notifications panel.

    I ordered my Galaxy Note 2 around 1am the very first day AT&T had them available. Still haven't seen hide nor hair of my update. I'll give it another week or so, but I'll admit I'm pretty ticked off. If I had any other choice of carrier in my area I'd have dropped AT&T a while back.
