I am in the same predicament. ( I do dread giving up my old, long expired Sprint plan, but even it has risen in cost to almost $100/month even with a 25% discount )
I am reading that the Galaxy Note might come to Sprint as an LTE version. If so, does that mean it would still work in locations that only have 3g and not LTE yet?
Yep,.it will function just fine. Text, Stream video, Email, and talk on the phone just as would on your.current 3G device. LTE is just extra.icing on the cake .
PLEASE ADD THE NOTE TO THE SPRINT LINE UP. MY CONTRACT IS UP THIS SUMMER AND I WILL MOVE TO ANOTHER COMPANY IN ORDER TO GET ONE IF NEED BE BUT I REALLY ENJOY MY COVERAGE AT SPINT AND WOULD HATE TO LEAVE. BUT WOULD TO GET THE NOTE! PLEASE PLEASE GET THE NOTE!!!
Yeah...Heck yeah...add me to the list. Would love to see this phone on the Now Network. Would be a nice addition to my collection.
Samsung Galaxy Note gets it's official launch date with pre orders starting Feb 5th on ATT. The thing to take from that is the number of comments by posters saying they not be signing up for the Note, do to simple fact it is launching on ATT. The upside is ATT is launching it sooner rather than later. Increasing the possiblity the Note/Journal to be launched sooner on Sprint. I only hope Sprint will take advantage of the mistake by ATT and still the "Thunder" a MWC 2012 and announce Sprint plans to launch the "Note/Journal" on the Now Network in the near future. Don't think so? Here is over 360 comments on major phone website that begs to differ. Enjoy the comments here.
Day after day rolls by as AT&T readies itself for the deluge of new Samsung users. Come on Sprint, I will wait till MWC 2012, but if no word comes concerning the Note and Sprint. I am thinking AT&T is my only option, unless Verizon gets it, which would be a 4G bonus for me.
This phone is a hit in Europe, so bring it to me Sprint!
Samsung Note or BUST!
I also will jump ship for the note!!! Sprints perks have diminished for me. Crappy data/4g, I dont think ill regret it.
OMG -- now i dont know what to do. My "Precious" could be in my waiting hands on Feb 17th, if I am just willing to go to the dark side (ATT). I dont want to do it, but .. but ... aaaauuggghhhh. Sprint please at least announce that you are getting it so I can forego my pre-order with ATT. I REALLY would rather stay with Sprint. This is killing me !!!
US Galaxy Note Price & Release Date on AT&T: Or 2 days early
At the end of December we reported on the global sales success of the Samsung Galaxy Note smartphone. The good news was also announced that it would definitely be released in the U.S, possibly in early 2012. We now have good news for those of you who have been waiting as it is now official that the Galaxy Note will be released on AT&T shortly and we have news on price, release date and pre-orders.
Two weeks ago we also told how we learned the Galaxy Note was definitely headed to AT&T and the speculation about a possible release on Verizon and Sprint too. The news today regards the Galaxy Note on AT&T although it may still come to other US carriers further down the line. The release date in stores is February 19 with pre-orders available from February 5. However, you may be able to get your Galaxy Note two days earlier.
Brad Molen on Engadget passes on the good news from AT&T that those who pre-order the Galaxy Note in store or online by February 15 will actually receive their delivery on February 17, thereby beating the release date by two days. The price has now also been confirmed as $299.99 on the usual two-year contract and it will be available in two color options, carbon blue or ceramic white.
We’ll give you a few reminders of this popular smartphone/tablet hybrid such as its 5.3-inch HD Super AMOLED display, 8-megapixel rear camera and 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. It also has a stylus, the S Pen. PC Mag adds that the Galaxy Note has a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal memory, SD card slot, a 2500 mAh battery and access to AT&T’s LTE network.
