    Because in my original post I stated that I got an unexpected cheap upgrade to the Note2. This was previous to the Note3 being announced never mind which carriers it was on. At this point almost anything will be an upgrade over my Galaxy Nexus

    Quick question for people who have had both the Galaxy Nexus and the Note2: which phone is more slippery? My Gnex is terrible, partly due to how thin it us with the stock battery and partly due to the very rounded corners. The OEM extended battery makes it better slightly but even when at home I at least have a TPU case for grip. Is the Note2 as bad? Hopefully the size and slightly more square shape help,

    The Note 2 does have some slip to it. Of course I only notice it whenever I don't have my Otterbox on.
    That is the downside to the glossy plastic back that Samsung uses. Maybe by the looks of the Note 3 they are trying to get away from that.

    I love this thing! Crazy going from pure Android to touchwiz, this size is insane

    Been playing with it all evening. Touchwiz takes getting used to, but I think I'll stay with Apex Launcher.


    EDIT: one thing I gotta know ASAP. I haven't found the setting for it yet, but I HATE that the home button wakes the screen. Please tell how to turn it off! I only want the screen to wake when I hit the power button.

    I haven't been able to find any setting that would disable the home button.
    I think the only way to disable it would be not to press it....?

    Well it was a great phone for the few hours I had it. Its getting shipped back today. The Rogers rep who initiated the upgrade severely misled me on the upgrade. Was told 50 bucks for the phone and activate a line for ten bucks a month. Turns out the line has to be minimum 60 per month, and my budget can't stretch that far (esp upgrading 2 lines which would double our monthly bill, on top of the hardware upgrade of 50/line)

    Too bad. Great phone. Definitely overkill for my needs but awesome nonetheless. Rep I chatted with today said his hands were tied. Sad panda here but oh well

    That sucks dude!
    You are not the first to be mis led by those fu*king Rogers reps.
    I have had to send back a brand new device before because they can't get their **** sorted out. So I know where you are coming from man!

    Right on. So really Rogers is the only choice for you too. I hate Manitoba service providers.
    Bell and Telus are only good in the city. MTS is only good in Manitoba. Once you leave the province, you are screwed.
    Thus leaving Rogers as the only good all around solution..... They got us by the nuts!

    Yup pretty much. My work takes me around southern Manitoba and parts of Ontario so I need a national carrier. Sucks, but it is what it is.
