    Hi, sorry if this is in the wrong section. I couldn't find a section for the fan edition. I was just wondering if it's possible to use the note fe in the United States? Don't wanna purchase just yet, I'm asking because I know they only sell it in Korea. Ebay and other few sites are selling them, kinda pricy

    I searched the FCC Site for FCC Approval and could not find any so I would say "No" - if they haven't approved, US Carriers won't allow it. Why eBay sells it without some warnings is beyond me!

    I am currently using the Note FE with T-Mobile here in the states without issue there are folks using them with AT&T as well. If you have Verizon or Sprint you will not be able to use this device though. I got one off ebay last month for $700 you can also find them on swappa.

    Thanks for the input guys, I'm glad it's working on T-Mobile. I'll just have to change the settings back to English once I turn on the phone. Any instructions on that? lol

    You won't need translation to do it... It's a drop down menu when you boot it up the first time lol

    There is an area over on XDA some folks have rooted there's I'm pretty content with it stock.

    Accessories are dirt cheap I have about 10 or more cases and didn't pay $20 for them. Quality cases that are typically $30 and up each, all were still new in packaging.

    I think the FCC approval is just to sell it in the US, I doubt all the random unlocked phones people have shipped to the US from Asia are FCC certified.

    I could be completely wrong.

    I don't there is a poster on Reddit that has gotten it to work. I have T-Mobile digits so if I need WiFi calling I have my other phone with a duplicate sim. The Note FE is my main sim though.

    I am glad you are loving the note FE. I love my note8.

    Is there any reason you did not want the note8? Just curious.

    Interesting my Note 8 is narrower than my Note 4 and probably less than a centimeter taller.

    The Note 4 is 5.7" tall, while the Note 8 is 6.3" tall. I don't know how that equates to centimeters, but i've held the Note 8, and played around with it in my local T-Mobile store. It's too big(tall), and the fear of dropping it was too great. End of story.

    You didn’t ask me but I don’t like the newer skinnier tall phones. Feels weird in my hand, I have friends with the S8 and the Note 8 and both mentioned the same. I also don’t care for the placement of the fingerprint sensor.

    Basically decided to buy the Note FE instead of the Note 8 because I really love the look and feel of the Note 7. It sucks that the Note 7 had to go down that way, but I am really happy they brought it back, just it another name haha! It's for us true fans that loved the Note 7. I also don't like the newer and skinnier tall phones, it does feel weird in the hand, maybe it's just me. I also don't like the finger print scanner on the back, big no-no for me. Don't think I'll get used to it. I love the finger printer sensor in the front. Overall I'll be having this phone for a really long time as long as I take care of it. Don't see myself buying any more phones. Just wondering, why isn't there a section in the forums for the Samsung galaxy note fan edition? It's like we get no love... I want to chat more about the phone with other enthusiasts 😁

    I would have bought this phone in a minute, but the price was a lot higher than they originally said. I'm now looking for a 64gb Note 5 that will work on the T-mobile network.

    They are available at the Samsung stores here in the Philippines now. Price is around $650.
    I was looking at one about a week ago when I was at a Samsung store in the mall.
