    Update: I also received an order confrimation email (that was detailed like my receipt) on the 25th and another email on the 26th that said it had begun processing (with little detail). I called AT&T today and had the cs person tell me what she saw in the system. She confirmed it was the one item (note2) and the change in service from iPhone data to LTE plan.

    Sounds OK. But I will check back later this week, anyway.

    CORRECTION: ignore this too...user error!
    Oh poor, dponte! You were afraid they were mistakenly sending you a.....flip phone! I'll never forget when I got a flip phone; it was the same day McKinley was assassinated. Hah! Barump bump.

    Confusing for a moment, until the same pic was next to the SIM item as well. Interestingly enough, I just checked again and there was no 'missing image'/default flip-phone pic anymore! Good.

    I ordered a no commitment note 2 to upgrade my iphone 4s. I had a really hard time to place the order online, a lot of calls been made to att, finally it's done. The confirmation letter shows the Unite price is$694.99. Extended Price $694.99. And my credit card was charged $756.85. I don't quite understand. isn't the no commitment price listed is 649.99?

    You mean the data plan of iphone is different from LTE,? I just assume that I can just use the iphone sim card in my note 2. Am I wrong?

    Their is an 'iPhone data plan' and an 'LTE data plan' for the unlimited plans. I had come from the iPhone unlimited. There is ALSO an iPhone unlimited w/200 msg plan (for text messages) and a LTE one that has the 'w/200 msg' as well. So, be sure to make the correct choice online when you order the Note 2 and do the service order, coming from an iPhone plan.

    It's weird, but you just have to be careful to not mess up your current deal. Unlimited is cheaper, for me (grandfathered in). Whether or not it's unlimited...is another thread!

    I don't know all the details about the SIM card from the iPhone (I have a 3GS)...however...

    First of all...the iPhone5 uses a nano-SIM, so that won't work unless you shave it down (as someone did for a iPhone 4/4S and used it for their 5. BUT, I assume you are coming from an iPhone that is not a 5.

    In that case, it has been rumored that the SIM card cannot be removed/accessed on the Note2 US models anyway. Odd, since I see the N7100 (international model) HAS access to the SIM card, and talks about how to remove it in detail.

    I haven't had a chance to open up my friends Sprint phone, to check it out one more time (using the N7100 diagram, this time).

    Has anyone verified their SIM card access yet on US models?

    thanks to dponte .
    I just talked to an att supervisor, she helped to correct the price issue. Actually when you had someone to help you put the order through the phone, $45 will be charged. Pretty funny, I got $45 credit for my next bill. hope they can ship the note on time. After I receive the note, i will try to insert my iphone 4s micro sim card into it and see if it works.

    Hmmm, pre-order for the Note2 is only online. Or WAS only online...has that changed? I could not order over the phone with the CS rep from AT&T.

    Also, there was the 35$ 'upgrade fee' that myself and others mentioned in previous posts...you can get that waived. But, not sure what the 45$ thing was about...maybe you meant the same but wrote 45 instead of 35?

    Still have to open my friends Sprint Note 2 again and double-check....but, the Sprint manual does NOT have ANY info about the SIM card! As Hummingbird says, I checked the T-Mobile guide too, they DO have info about removing the SIM. This is very interesting, as the SIM and SD card in the diagram seem off, compared to what I saw on my friends Sprint Note 2 model...very confused right now!

    I kept hearing that the SIM was not removable on these US models...can we get a verdict for the Sprint and T-Mobile ones, anyone?

    An aside...the Sprint User Guide said it supported microSD cards up to 64GB. The T-Mobile User Guide said it only supported up to '48GB' ...HUH??? I don't think I read that wrong.

    Wonder what AT&T will say about the SD card...better be 64GB!!

    Do they even make 48gb? The SGSIII supports 64gb, class 10 card I have...
    Sure the Note 2 does as well.

    Hummingbird is correct...I double checked, and yes, it's confusing. It makes me think they updated this, since I looked before. I would assume the max is 64GB in extra storage (as is the case for what other models have), but what they say is conflicting...or they are just confused (FAT32 doesn't require THAT much metadata/indexing! ).

    I checked the website again...and their 'info' page on the Samsung Note 2 has this blurb too, saying 48GB:

    16 GB Built-in Memory Plus MicroSD Slot
    Plenty of room to store your photos, videos, movies, and more—expandable up to 48 GB with a MicroSD card.

    Also, they have a Q&A section tab for the phone too with anonymous people answering questions...one about the storage capacity and some say 64GB and some say 48GB like this guy: Nope, 48 GB is correct, global specs stated 64, this model only has 48GB then, there is this guy, who had the 'best answer' 2 GB internal Ram... up to 64 GB additional SD card storage, not limited to 48 GB

    Here is the support page with the pdf links and T-Mobile reps own help/how-to tips. The how-to section the SD card applies to does not mention SD card size limits/requirements...oddly:
    Support: Device hardware: Samsung Galaxy Note II

    Even more confounding, in the PDF, the diagrams show new pics of the SIM card and SD placement...where Sprint phones do not have SIM card removal in their manual and I can't see how to do it on that model my friend has. I have AT&T and wont have the phone until next week (maybe the 7th, if I'm lucky). The models are THAT different? Hmm. Possible.

    Installing the microSD Memory Card
    Your device supports an optional (external) microSD™
    memory cards for storage of media such as music, pictures,
    video and other files. The SD card is designed for use with
    this mobile device and other devices.
    Note: microSD memory cards include capacities of up to 2GB.
    microSDHC™ memory card types can range from 4GB
    to up to 32GB. microSDXC™ memory card types can
    include capacities greater than 32GB.
    Note: This device supports a memory card of up to a 64GB.

    page 28: • Expandable memory slot - supports up to 64GB microSD card

    page 76: Your device lets you use a microSD card (also referred to as a
    memory card) to expand available memory space. This
    secure digital card enables you to exchange images, music,
    and data between SD-compatible devices. This section
    addresses the features and options of your device’s SD
    functionality. The device has a USB SD card mode.
    • microSD card storage: up to 2GB in size
    • SDHC card storage: up to 32GB in size
    • SDXC card storage: greater than 32GB in size

    So, looks like it SHOULD be 64GB on T-Mobile's Note 2 model. Good thing I have AT&T...this would annoy the crap out of me...but anyone with a T-Mobile Note 2 here should be able to clarify this for us.

    I will if I even get it. My At&t status says "Attention" been on the phone this morning, and yesterday with premier and I can't get anywhere with them. Not sure what the issue is but they keep telling me everyday to wait another 48 hours. My iphone right now needs a new 30 pin connector, and have been without a phone for a week now. If they don't fix the issue and assure me its shipping by Friday I may need to just grab the iphone 5 or something else. I work off my phone a lot, and not having one is killing me.

    Not sure what 'attention' means. But, yeah I'd be on the phone too.

    In your case, maybe just go to your local AT&T store on Friday, early, and get one there. It may sell-out, because the Note2 seems more popular than the Note1 was -for several reasons. But, you should have a good chance of getting one on the 9th, unless the lines are like I saw in pictures in Singapore!

    Well I would but according to my local At&t store they still have no idea if they are even getting them on Friday lol.

    Yeah, the store reps arent always informed of these things, or some just don't inform/inquire themselves it seems.

    AT&T is supposed to ship the phone on the 6th to stores AND preorders (starting with those who ordered soonest, I assume)...so, you should get it in store on the 9th.

    I recall asking the Sprint rep at a kiosk at the mall if they were getting it the next day (25th Oct) and the rep said 'no', yet my friend went to his local Sprint store and got one. Albeit, they did not have many of them that first day. Get there early and try to call 1-2 stores right before, if you can.

    I don't think sprint uses a sim card. The AT&T phones have removable Sims. Not positive on the Note 2 but all my other AT&T phones have had removable sim cards so I wouldn't expect any different

    So very jealous and envious of the AT&T folk getting it 3 weeks earlier than us Verizon people. Keep us updated on the shipment!
