    Ok, I'm waiting to hear how the phone is on big reds network. I've been waiting on this phone for months. How is the signal? That's my biggest concern, especially coming from the galaxy nexus. Thanks

    not many can tell you right now because a lot of people are not able to activate the phone.

    Still waiting on delivery...and then who knows how long until activation works. Hopefully by the time Fedex lands, the activation issue will be cleared up.

    They left in the wifi toggle and blocking mode, and no branding on the home button. I'm actually surprised that they didn't screw anything up that I've noticed...so far. Very happy, this phone is just as good as I expected it to be.

    Blazin, I understand they crippled the home screen continuous scroll again. We're you able to play in the options to see if there is an option to make it a continuous one ? Did they put back the s planner widget? Thanks.

    The only S widgets I see are S Note and S Bookmarks. I'm not familiar with that widget so maybe I'm missing it, but I don't think it's there. And you are correct, you cannot continuous scroll (rubber bands to left and right) and I do not see an option to change that, but I'm still exploring.

    Can anyone else confirm that there is an issue with type to text on Verizon? I cannot, for the life of me, get it to work. Sending this from my Note 2 because I haven't set up my accounts on the Note 3 yet.

    Thanks dude. That to me while minor is just a nusiance and not sure the end game for Verizon to disable that when every other carrier allows it to loop. It's real annoying when adding widgets in the beginning of the alphabet and then going to the end. Opps, you want to go over to A again and have to go all the way back. #firstworldprobs

    Okay, one of the first things you will need to do is update the Samsung keyboard and then restart your device. My keyboard is now working as it it should.

    Put it in airplane mode for a few minutes. Aso go into the mobile network settings and flip it from Global to LTE/CDMA

    Just returned from the big RED store... I could not be happier. Its been a rough few weeks waiting and reading and reading more and watching youtube videos... etc etc...!

    Everything works perfect. Going to take awhile to get completely comfortable coming from iPhones.

    Should be getting the gear tomorrow...! Anyone else getting gear from the big V?

    Cheers...

    The signal is about the same as my Galaxy S3, which is kinda crappy at home (normally 2 bars of 3G) and great at work (4 bars of 4G). It didn't use to be that bad at home, but ever since they put up the 4G tower, it's gone downhill.

    Agreed, about the same as my Galaxy S3 signal

    Love the screen and overall response of the device. Was kinda irked that my Verizon salesman was so enthralled by my phone after activating it. Literally was opening up apps that had started downloading due to my Play Store backup. Was second customer in store, but first through activation process, so guess that was the reason.

    I am very pleased with it. Haven't made too many calls, but activation was a breeze. And my contacts came over without an issue from the iPhone. Haven't had much time to play with it, but going to tonight while waiting on the wife. Just need to get on wifi, do add some of my app's back. Calls are good though. Not sure about the gmail app yet, hoping an update is outhere for it.

    Thus far I'm having intermittent connectivity issues with PDAnet, the USB 3.0 feature requires you to put the phone in Airplane mode (unless there's a workaround for it), but the processor speed is great, and battery life seems to be great as well, considering how long it's taking me to charge. From what I understand charging under USB 3.0 should be faster, but that's a given considering you're putting the phone in Airplane mode.

    Great phone but my signal since trying the S4 and the Note 3 just isnt on par with what i got from last two Motorola phones. The Razr, MAXX HD both had better signal!

    How did you move your contacts over from the iPhone?

    Was there a region lock sticker on the box? From the posted pics, one can't open the box without tearing up the sticker.
