    I am wondering the same thing. I just purchased the Unlocked Galaxy Note 2, Titanium Grey, planning on using it with Straight Talk on AT&T. Hoping also, that updates will hit this quickly?

    Yes it will update quicker. You'll just have to wait when Samsung pushes out the updates, which is much faster than having it go through carriers as well

    Quicker than carrier-branded, slower than Nexus. But rest assured that factory-unlocked devices DO get the manufacturer's updates first, just not as soon as you'd get them if they were coming directly from Google as the Nexus devices do.

    I think it would be important to note that an unlocked AT&T carrier branded phone doesn't just turn it into the international N7100 version. That carrier branded phone would still be tied to the carrier for updates.

    What you are looking for is the international version for quicker updates, and it happens to be unlocked.

    Well depends on where you live. Technically per say where I live tmobile is faster because of hspa+42. Whereas at&t is hspa+21
    But in daily use scenarios it shouldn't make much difference. Although I would suggest going with a tmobile plan just because straight talk caps your hspa speeds at 2GB
