    I have owned SEVERAL DROID phones and they have always been fantastic. I've never had a Samsung before and after rave reviews I decided to give it a try. I was excited to learn that the Note 3 was coming out and it wasn't until I had it for a few weeks that I learned it's not what I thought. My GPS sucks MAJORLY. I need it for work purposes and it is ALWAYS dropping and searching for a signal when I'm on the road. It loads slow and can never quite figure out where I currently am quick enough to redirect me after the signal returns. I thought it was just a T- mobile thing, but a friend of mine that also travels for work is experiencing the same thing (He's with AT&T). We both also have problems with MMS Messages. NONE of my friends get my picture messages. I constantly have to email them. Very annoying! His AT&T phone doesn't receive MMS Messages until hours or days later. I've called T-Mobile Several times and reset my access point names and still NOTHING is received. If anyone else is having this problem or can help please help!!!!

    Welcome to the forums!!

    I've heard of people having major issues with the GPS in the Note 3 but haven't had any problems myself. I have a T-Mobile Note 3 (rooted w/ custom ROM) and used it over the weekend for getting to a friends house and didn't have any problems at all.

    As for the MMS issue. I had a problem in the beginning but I figured that was because my service was being transferred from AT&T. Everything is good now

    I'm starting to think the note 2 was good enough until the 4 came out. My GPS was very strong and accurate on my at&t note 2. I switched to T-Mobile and upgraded to a note 3. I've had so many little problems with this thing I'm almost tempted to try and get a note 2 back somehow.
