    It does not at the moment. From what I've found, Swift is at the core of the BB VKB on Android, and it is not an officially available app at this time. Most likely due to licensing by swift. I have found that there seems to be swift like actions on the native Samsung keyboard, though.
    Ah ok. I've heard great things about BB keyboard. Never tried it personally. Samsung's is getting better for me, but I still don't like it as much as Google's.

    Not the same as native BB.

    I haven't used the stock Samsung keyboard in years. SwiftKey is the only thing I can use.

    Now with my Note 4 I had to switch to a split keyboard and I've gotten used to that. I kept it on my Note 5 and I assume I will on my Note 7 also.

    Just an update on the memory card, I just left a best buy and they said that I can't get the sd card because the in store purchase via bear buys fine print, is that It has to be on a plan or renewal, which doesnt allow me to use my Best buy card or something like that, and also the Samsung Guy seemed to be trying ro push the fit2 on me. Before i even mentioned which promo I was looking to get. It is what it is at this point.

    Thanks, to be honest, I'm finding it pretty hard to find a seamless transition. But there is always going to be a little learning curve with anything new.

    So it does look like they are going to enforce it in the stores.. That's probably why you can only do the Gear Fit 2 online and not the memory card even though the fine print says the same for either one (that you need a plan or renewal). If you really want the memory card and the promo is still going on, then maybe get it directly from a carrier where you can get the memory card (via mail) with a full outright purchase. Or get the Gear Fit 2. lol It's stuff like this that annoys the hell out of people. Either you just do a promotion or not - none of these conditional bull**** things.

    A little update. I wasn't eligible for the promotional items because I decided to buy the note out right. I'm going to give this device a run through for the next 10-12 days to see if the device and the platform are for me.
    Happy Phone Week! Enjoy!

    Okay, so now that I have this AT&T branded note7, does anyone know if there was any official announcement on when the international/unlocked versions are supposed to go on sale? Or if they even will, especially here in the US?

    I have a little more than a week with this one before I have to decide if i am going to keep it or should take it back. Ultimately, I was hoping to grab the unlocked version but since I couldn't find out anything else about a release date, and my Passport was startomg to get really wonky on me, I jumped and got this one.

    I've been seeing unlocked versions up for sale on Amazon, dual SIM versions. But the specs read to be the same as the US version. Ultimately, I'd like to grab one without carrier bloat ware on it, and increase my chances of getting timely updates without having to wait for AT&T.

    There is nothing to sY you can buy an international version or unlocked one here.

    There is a lot to think about with an International version. First there are some issues popping up with them, Samsung has halted shipment.. I wouldn't get one now.

    Also you have to really make sure you get the right one for using towers here. Some people have issues with LTE.

    There is also the matter of Samsung support. You don't get Samsung support or Samsung warranty if you buy one. Samsung USA won't support an international model.. Not unless they have changed that on the last year.

    Thank you!

    I didn't realize the halted shipments were for the international versions, I figured it was for the currently ordered devices waiting to be filled.

    My Passport was an unlocked/international version, and I had no issues with LTE on AT&T. Still on AT&T with the Note7 using the same nano SIM and no issues as far as I can tell. The halted shipments is definitely something to be concerned with, and the same with the warranty. I'm currently using Best Buy insurance on this since thats where I got it from.

    I've always wanted an international version bit those things have stopped me. AT&T is horrible about the bloatware, I hated it when I was with them.

    The T-Mobile version seems to work well on AT&T and T-Mobile puts very little bloat on the phone. Also T-Mobile has been very good this last year about getting updates out quickly and not messing with the Samsung features.

    Unfortunately, AT&T has always been thr best of cell service for me in my area, and this is going back to the days of Cingluar and Cellular One before that. That's why I'm so hesitant to change. That, and all of my grandfathered unlimited plans, lol

    Oh I know lol

    It gets more tricky when it comes to Android. Carriers still have a hold on the phones. There is a place that many buy from online but I don't know the name of the place or anything about it.

    Now Samsung did some unlocked S7's they sold here but I don't think those got updates like the carrier ones did. That was a new venture for Samsung, selling a carrier unlocked one here.

    I have a feeling Samsung will do a carrier unlocked version at some point in the US. I also have a feeling that the carriers pressured them to delay an official US unlocked for 6 months or so after release.

    Samsung gives in to carriers way too much if you ask me. They have the brand recognition and power to get Apple like deals. No carrier branding, bloat, and faster software updates should be no problem for them to negotiate at this point.

    I have a feeling they will announce a carrier unlocked version of the Note 7 at some point, but not until the carriers have an exclusive for 3-6 months like they did with the S7.
