    I just got my T-Mobile Note 7 and loving it.

    Switching from Apple so spent some time to get to know the OS etc. Haven't really installed any launcher or icon packs. If I do has to be something minimal similar to the iOS. To be honest would love if we could get stock Android as it looks much more cleaner. But again I'm not an expert.

    Now to my problem.

    I've been reading everywhere that the phone gives the ability to take notes while locked and also pin those notes for an hour or so on the lock screen.

    The option is on from settings and I'm able to write notes on the locked screen. The pin icon there is nowhere to be found? Any ideas what's going on. There is a save button that saves the note the the notes app but no way to pin in to the lock screen.

    Any help will be very appreciated it.
    I figured it out, it needs an update go to settings display and always on display and look for the update .. worked for me

    Let me know if this is how the lock screen AoD works.
    It is not how it's supposed to work. To fix it you need to updated the AoD as follows:

    go to Settings, Display, ALways On Display, "About Always on Display".

    In there you should find a link to update the AoD. Once that happens the pinning to AoD works. At least it does for me now :-) Good luck.

    SOLVED**Guys, was playing around trying to get this to work. Finally found a "pending update" for Always On Screen. Update that, make sure Always on Display is on, and it will definitely work after that,

    Search the Samsung Store for the update,
    Thanks. This was driving me crazy as well.

    Thank for all of the comments and suggestions. I have mine working now to because of this thread

    Is there anyway to continue modifying a note that is exist on the lock screen already from the lock screen? I wrote what I wanted to get at the store and I put my phone down remembered one more thing and it doesn't allow me to continue on an already pinned note to the lock screen. Am I doing something wrong or is this not a feature yet? Thanks for any and all help.

    I'm trying to figure this out as well. I can't believe there's no way to edit a pinned note. I created 4 different grocery lists last night because I kept needing to add to it. Dumb.

    This is nice but i don't think it should have replaced action memo by any means

    I'm having problems with mine. It will alow me to click on the pin icon; however, after saving it only shows an icon on my always on display that I can click twice to open the memo. I was under the assumption that the memo would just display on the screen without me having to double click on the icon to make it display. Am i wrong? If not, is there a setting I nees to change?
    i had the same issue, however once u update the latest software , it will work fine..update os from settings
