Interestingly, an image of an unbranded Samsung Galaxy Note was recently spotted over on Sprint’s web site showing off the carrier’s Mobile Controls feature. Naturally, it’s difficult to say with enough certainty if the handset will be coming to Sprint or not – especially...

As a former Sprint customer, if there was any phone to put Sprint back on the map is this phone. This phone may not have the overall popularity of the iPhone, but it is changing the mindframe of the mobile phone community. This phone is no sloutch, it can compete with any phone on the market and the features surpass even its little "cousin"............the SGSII

Sprint could sell millions if they broadcast it right or this could be worse than the advertisments for the Dell Streak lol

Amen Jerediah3, you said it perfectly. It all depends on whether or not it's marketed correctly. Hell, honestly, I would jump ship to Sprint if they got it and VZW didn't. So the question is: AT&T or Sprint?

the bigger question is.....Will their version of the Note have LTE?? if it does then go to Sprint because they said that theyd still have unltd data (which is their ONLY selling point to come to Sprint)

See here's the thing: I am grandfathered into VZW with unlimited data. If their Version has LTE, that would be a sweet deal though. Why did you leave Sprint in the first place? I want to leave VZW so bad but the only reason why I didn't is because of the unlimited data I have.

I left Sprint because of their "spending limit" Its the stupidest thing they've ever had. I would schedule a payment arrangement (whicf for other carriers would mean that it would stay on until the day that the payment arrangement has been fulfilled).............With Sprint, it would be turned off anyway and then id have to pay more money to get it back on. thats frustrating and no matter no many times i went off on them about it, they wouldnt budge SO I went to AT&T.

Damn man, that is so ridiculous. To be honest, I would rather be with AT&T if that's the case. When the HTC EVO 4G 3D came out, my co-worker got it and he still had bad reception and it was hit or miss on the job. Outside the job, it was ok. Crazy man. Well, we'll see what happens. But again, I am giving it till years end to see if VZW will make something great happen. If not, I'm outta here and going to AT&T.

I hear ya WildManFan!! AT&T has 2 big advantages over Verizon.............the fact that you'll maintain fast speeds when ur not on LTE

AT&T has HSPA+ and LTE whereas Verizon has 3G and LTE...thats a huge difference

the other difference is that you can surf and talk at the same time! Ive been hearing conflicting views on Verizon offering the same thing so id say that they dont have it

Your right Jerediah3! Verizon doesn't have the capability to talk and surf the web at the same time. Because their technology is in a different world. And I don't mean that in a good way. It's funny that Verizon is supposed to be #1 and they don't pay attention to small details. My contract ends September 1st and I just bought a used 4g phone so that I can hold myself off till my contract expires in September. By that time, I am giving myself from September till years end to see something great come out of VZW because if not, I'm jumping ship to AT&T.

Jerediah3, What is the difference between HSPA and LTE vs. 3g and LTE?

its about internet and downloading speed within a network. think of it like this......

3G can go up to 75MPH..........HSPA and HSPA+ can go up to 145MPH..........LTE can go up to 200MPH

Verizon's network has LTE and their backup is 3G so if there is no lTE in your area, it will revert back to 3G and you will notice a difference when you are using its internet. Verizon doesnt tell you what their backup internet is when LTE is down

When you have AT&T-LTE service and there is no LTE service available, you can go to HSPA+ which isnt much of a speed difference
