Samsung Galaxy Note II arrives at T-Mobile
posted by Nick T. / Oct 24, 2012, 5:55 AM
However, the bad news is that T-Mobile has priced the Galaxy Note II at $370 with a qualifying plan and a two-year contract, which is $70 more than what AT&T and Sprint are asking for it. On top of that, a $50 mail-in rebate is included in the deal, meaning you will actually pay $420 at checkout, while the extra cash you paid will take a few more weeks to arrive in your mail box.
So what do you get for your money then? First of all, you'll be enjoying a giant Android 4.1 smartphone with a 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD screen. Doing all the heavy weightlifting is a quad-core Exynos 4412 chip running at 1.6GHz, while a 3,100mAh battery provides the juice to last you through the day. Not to be forgotten is the S Pen used for taking down notes and the occasional scribbling.
Anyone who wants the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy Note II badly is free to visit the carrier's web page and place an order. The source link below will take you there.

420 - Rebate is ridiculous with a 2 year contract.

Also anyone make out the frequencies it has? This was taken from the site: "850 MHz; 900 MHz; 1800 MHz; 1900 MHz; UMTS: Band I (2100);UMTS: Band IV (AWS);Band II (1900)" I thought it was supposed to be future proof for their LTE network and why don't I see the usual 1700 for hspa? I don't see LTE listed at all...

Luckily for me I almost always buy my phones unsubsidized, I only like to take the discount once every 3 phones.(I usually get a new phone every 8 months) I believe T-Mobile is trying to tempt people off of Classic plans into the Value plans which have no Subsidization, as most of us know T-Mobile doesn't really care for the Subsidization model. If you look at the outright price its about $649 which is very reasonable for a high end smart device of this caliber and definitely cheaper than what my 32GB GS3 was.

Finally, someone with an intelligent post. Considering what this phone can do (and, OMG Quad-Core, S-Pen, 5.5" RGB screen, etc), $649 is more than fair. Think about it, there are people lining up elsewhere just to buy a very very small phone from another manufacturer; it's half the size, with half the RAM and half the CPU power; the only new features that phone has is 'the headphone jack is on the bottom' and the headphones have been designed differently, now redesigned for "sensitive ears".

It'll sell just fine. The S3 on T-Mobile is $80 more than the other carriers' versions & it is now the best selling phone of all-time on the carrier. Is there any word on the 32GB model? There's only one listing on the website & it's the 16GB.

Don't ever buy a high end smartphone from Tmobile directly... Go to best buy or Walmart...you don't deal with that rebate nonsense..please spread the word Tmobile customers

I walked into my local T Mobile store 3 weeks ago and told them that I read on phone Arena that the Galaxy Note 2 is coming on October 24th I want to make a list with my name first. They called me 2 days ago and said I am first so I am going to pick up my phone today. They said that Samsung assured them that the T Mobile version will be better than the other 3 carriers. My galaxy s 2 from Sprint was way better than the T Mobile version of the galaxy s 2 so I know that different versions come out through different carriers even know they have the same name. The monthly charge through T Mobile is much less than sprint so I will save money in the long run I can't wait to pick up my new phone today. Thank you phone Arena for all of your information and hype

My local store called me yesterday to tell me they had it in stock. I called a week ago asking if they could hold one for me until I got out of work. Today I'm going straight from work to the store to pick mine up :)
