I just bought the Note 2 over a month ago, love the phone to date. The notifications [scrolling] have been fixed. However, the camera shutter sound is still an issue. The law never got passed, from what I've found in this past week. [HR 414 of the 111th Congress]. Why should I root it? No other major US carrier had subjected its users to this Phantom law.
Seriously, would you [if you could] buy a sports car that was limited to only going 55mph? It's something the owner should decide if he/she wants to go 95mph in a 35.
Notification Toggles are going to be scrollable via the Update http://forums.androidcentral.com/sprint-galaxy-not
Ya I knew the were apps out that could accomplish this, but I think most people were trying to figure a way to do it within stock features/camera. Still Thanks though, they also have apps to take pics with no camera display of your trying to sneak it "spy" apps.
Now for the notification toggles! Come on sprint we are the only Gn2 that doesn't have it compared to international, AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, apparently even sprints gs3 has this so what's going on?
Also btw whoever said sprint has an agreement with manufactures to keep the Site sound enabled is not the case. My evo 4g had the option to toggle.
You can get rid of the shutter one way i found so far that worked with my epic 4g touch and my note II. Theres an app called camera ics that has a silent mode in the settings and it allows silent pics. It also has panorama feature and video recording. I use it for those quick pics like catching my dog sleeping
I agree two of these were two options I liked. Now that the multiwindow is in its rollout update phase for Sprint. Now they need to update the darn notification toggles.
As for people talking about the shutter sound not being able to be disabled I swear I did something the other day with my Gn2 and the shutter didnt go off. I was snapping pictures of my niece sleeping and it didn't go off. (I think, or am I mistaken?)
Sprint also has an agreement with Samsung to eliminate the scrollable buttons on the top of the notification screen?
My GS3 from Sprint has this functions.
I bought a total price Note 2, Multiwindow and the scrollable buttons are two big fails.
I just received my Galaxy Note 2 today and it does not have the multi tasking feature either. I'm pretty upset about it too...One of the main reasons I bought the phone (Full Price)
