    It refuses to go off when I walk away from the pen. The N8 had an annoying chirp that would continuously go off.

    Am I missing something?

    Since the N9 S pen is connected via Bluetooth so the range is much longer than with the N8. Try going more than 30 feet away from the pen.

    Just tried it and I really don't care for it. Problem is, if the PEN comes out, you have 30+ feet before it warns you. Take in mind, no audible warning, just a message.

    I tried mine and its about 1M.
    My Note 8 was useless, once made it 2km from a bar before it sounded.

    Edit ,just tried it again, and now it's not working at all.
    I wonder if this can be fixed with an update .

    It works fine for me. Pop up message with a loud beeping and vibration.

    Any cache for the pen? If so, clear that, restart the phone and try again.

    So if you walk a few metres away to take photo with the remote, the alarm will sound and you got to go back and switch off the alarm? Hmm

    Mine doesn't seem to be working as well. I walked from one end of my house to the other and no alarm or even a message. And yes, alarm is turned on.

    Reset mine and it worked once. Samsung has some work to do on this feature.

    Yesterday I was at the AT&T store and somehow my S-Pen popped out. I drove about 6 miles to my next stop and noticed my S-Pen was gone!! No alarm, no pop-up, nothing!! I called AT&T and they looked in the areas I was and sure enough, they found it...

    Today, I found this thread, went thru the reset and tested it. I was able to walk 64 steps away from the pen and the only notification I got was to reinsert my S-Pen. I walked another 20 some steps before the alarm notification sounded and some pop up (don't remember what it said)

    Have there been any new fixes? Does Note Buddy Pro add any additional support? I like my S-Flip case but maybe I need to get something like the LifeProof Next or are there other cases that secure the S-Pen too?

    Side Note: Brand new 512 arrived at noon, I went to AT&T to return the 128 around 5... so within the first 5 hours the S-Pen popped out?!?!?

    One thing that I forgot about this alarm is that you will only get the alarm if the screen is OFF when you walk away.

    Because of your post, I just noticed this thread - mine doesn't work either. Resetting the S-Pen didn't help either! I noticed that as I got maybe 60 or 70 feet away from the pen, the pen icon at the top of the phone "grey'd" out, but no alarm or even a dialogue box???

    Was your screen OFF? Notice that you only get the alarm if the screen is OFF.

    Ahhh... no, it was not! Thank you - I'll test it again with it off! That was probably it! I kept refreshing the screen so I could watch it as I walked away...

    Worked! You were right... thanks again! Not sure if I like the new distance though - somebody could/would probably scoff the pen by the time you turned around and got back to it in a busy bar/restaurant, etc.

    I had my phone in my hand and walked as I normally would... I don't know if the screen was off or not or when it went off.

    I lost my Note 8's S-Pen in the snow & ice during a fall. The replacement was under $10. I haven't found a replacement for the Note 9 under $40... That can start to get costly!
