T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 multi-window update now live

T-Mobile Galaxy Note 2 multi-window update now live
Today has been a hit or miss day for T-Mobile users looking for software updates. We just heard that the update for the HTC Windows Phone 8X has been delayed, but it's good news for T-Mobile users who have the Samsung Galaxy Note II. Word has it that the update bringing the popular multi-window functionality to the phablet is now live.

This update (surprisingly) made it to Verizon first, but now T-Mobile users can enjoy the Note II's multi-window system, which allows users to have two apps running concurrently in separate windows on the same screen. It's a great way to use the huge screen of the Note II. 

To check for your update just head to Settings --> About Phone --> Software Updates.

It's almost as if Samsung is purposefully holding the updates back to have a multi-window headline every week. Wasn't that supposed to be a feature out of the box?

Why do these carries continue to phuck with phones that the manufacturers make? I spoke with an ATT executive yesterday, they have NO clue when the update will come for our version of the Note 2. I wonder if ATT will drop the ball when it comes to the SoC update for the vulnerability that is posed to the S3, & Note 2??? Can we cancel our contracts with ATT for failure to provide services?

The update here on the Galaxy Note 2 is a wonderful update for the best smartphone ever made period. I recieved my update 1:30am this morning and it has added a wonderful extra functionality to an already feature rich handset. Don't be fooled here tmobile folk the Verizon version may have launched with the multi Window feature but it isn't as functional as the update tmobile Galaxy Note 2 recieved. On tmobile you have 15 applications you can use. You have the Chrome browser, stock samsung browser, Gmail, YouTub, Google Talk, Google Maps, stock video player, stock messaging app, exchange email app, Snote, Polaris office app, and tmobile tv application, facebook, and twitter. These are all very useful and extremely funcational. Whatever appear on the Verizon multi Window feature is totally watered down which is a result of Verizon not following the overall agreement made before the device was launched. Tmobile did exactly what Samsung needed them to do just like Sprint and At@t. Verizon decided to cosmetically and internally change up the device which is a disgrace to Samsung...

The only thing not functional about Verizon is that you never paid your bill on time so Verizon charged you late fees for being as delinquent as you were and as you probably still are. Then you went running to prepay and T-Mo' cuz' you can't afford it, you can't afford it ('and, your on da welfare').

It's a cool addition. I already made it a point to show it off to all my co-workers & friends today. I look forward to the Note 3. Hopefully, Samsung will make it so that all applications can take advantage of the feature.
