    That could be part of the problem, I know I have at least one game that is ad ware but I like the game. My anti virus soft doesn't flag it so I guess it's ok.

    not sure i would trust the anti virus completely.....doesn't necessarily mean that the game won't screw with the phone in indirect ways like the locking up just that its not maliciously worming into your system....i don't know. I'd take the game off and see if your problems clear up, if they do then you know for sure its the game and can decide if the game is worth it....if not the game then your back to figuring out what is causing the problem.

    Just did the Edge upgrade, from the Note 2. I can definitely see the difference in the screens, time will tell if this will be my new love - my Note 2 was pretty kick *** for my needs.

    Came from the OD RAZR.

    Pretty darn amazing.

    Pros or advantages over the RAZR (short list) - easy access to recent actions and apps through double-bump of the home key. The screen! Far better camera. S-Pen actually useful - scrapbook is great, sketch and screen draw is fun, S-Search a great idea, and handwriting comments and such it's really fun. The battery - replaceable and longer-lasting. The news/compiler Flip thingy is neat. Haven't used multi-taking and split screen much but can see how it might be useful in the future.

    Con - they should rethink the volume key/zoom function with the camera. Where it is now positioned, if you take a landscape shot, it's right where you put your thumb on the bottom of the case if you are holding the phone with your left hand and hitting the shutter with your right hand. Causes unnecessary zooming, which is great if you are doing Wayne's World.

    All in all, very well thought out, relatively intuitive and when it's not, help is available. Very powerful, lightning fast, and, so far, the radio is on par with the Moto, which surprised the heck out of me (I was worried about that).

    I dropped my Thunderbolt on concrete pavement when the termperature was about 12 degrees and it just shattered. Since the Thunderbolt was nearly three years old and the Galaxy Note 3 has received such high review ratings, I bought a Note 3 yesterday. I paid the full $699.99 retail price, mainly to keep the unlimited data plan, and set up all night working out various issues.

    In my opinion, compared to the Thunderbolt (although it too had lots of issues in the beginning), I find the Note 3 to be totally unamazing, in fact, I will say it is and overexpensive piece of crap, which will be returned to the Verizon store either tomorrow or on Monday.

    I like the phone I'd give an solid 8 but honestly if I could do it over again I just would have kept my note 2 I don't think it was worth the money to upgrade just my 2 cents

    You've only had it for a day?!? Why are you returning it?? What problems do you have?? Most people think the phone is pretty flawless including myself. My only worry was size coming from the GNex.

    I was thinking the same thing. Maybe she had needs that weren't compatible with the phone. But still, it only took me about 10 minutes to see what an advance in thinking and operation it was over the RAZR, and I have a co-worker that went from the Thunderbolt and said that there was no comparison. Neither one of us is a Samsung guy either (until now, I guess).

    Maybe you're just upset because the Note 3 makes no Sense.

    Another of my Smartphone-savvy Co-workers has a new Droid X, or whatever it's called and is really happy with it. Says it's really fast and snappy. That was my second choice and I seriously considered it, especially because it was a lot cheaper. I'm glad I didn't though. Maybe she should consider that one.

    Not having Sense was a disappointment, but I was able to setup the home page similarly to Sense.

    This Note 3 does not work well as a phone:

    1. At work, in Chicago, where I usually got 3 or 4 bars on my Thunderbolt, I got no bars or only 1 bar on the Note 3.
    2. At home, in Indiana, it is worse: my sister lives next door to me and every call has been terminated prematurely.
    3. My mom lives a five-minute drive from me and I cannot talk to her at all on the Note 3. The calls terminate almost immediately after connecting, if they connect at all.


    All of the gizmo/gadget apps are great, but reliable phone service is most critical.

    I thought it might be just this particular Note 3, but I found many reviews with others having similar problems with Note 3 phone calls.

    I hoped the upgrade would fix the problem, but it did not help.

    This device is saving my eye sight=no more headaches= perfect for me...The only negative is the spell checker..have to manually correct it on simple works...for instance when I first used it and tried to write wifi it would keep changing it to wife...thought that was really stupid and also had to manually ad words it wouldn't allow...that was just too puritanical for my liking...Samsung needs to grow up and get real

    Maybe it's because the words were misspelled? The correct spelling is Wi-Fi.

    Perhaps it would be helpful for people to learn to spell before blaming software and teaching auto-correct to misspell. *shrugs*

    Because I have already did 2 factory resets per Samsung and Verizon and Verizon is wanting me to do another before we can proceed. And after resetting it takes me at least a week to get everything just how I want. I would have been fine if after the second reset they would have swapped but no they want to try something else now.

    I'm afraid this is an example of where Apple does things right.
    Phone screwing up? Here's a new one.
    Back up the old one with icloud or itunes, restore the new one from the backup and it's like a clone of your original phone. Up and running in minutes.

    Sorry, I'm not making light of your issues, but I had to LOL at the complaint that the phone drops calls that are only going next door. The distance to the other party is pretty irrelevant. It's the distance to the cell towers and quality of signal that matter.

    Actually, you are making light of my issues. However, no worries; after talking with a Verizon rep, I decided to keep the Note 3 for a few days and it began picking up strong signals from Chicago and no longer has problems with phone calls.

    Hopefully my new Note 3 will continue to reliably handle phone calls and, for now, I like it a lot and rate it a 10.

    This is the phone that I had hoped the HTC Thunderbolt would be. In its stock state, it does things that I had to root the HTC Thunderbolt to do. I do not know enough about it yet, but it is looking like I may never need to root it!

    I just brought my Note 3 home today about noon and have not put it down since then. I rate this phone a solid 10. I love the screen, my LTE and Wifi have been rock solid and the phone is ridiculously fast. On top of that it even makes phone calls. What more could you want?

    This phone was a replacement for a Galaxy Nexus. I used to carry my iPhone 5 (work phone) around with me in my back pocket in case I wanted to take good pictures. However, with this camera there is no reason for carting that around either.
