After watching that link I saw on MacRumors, coldfustion on YouTube. My home screen doesn't look boring with standard apps.

It's a start, baby steps. I have BobClockD3 and Simple Text. I'm a rookie at this that it took me an hour. :( LOL

I love it!

For anyone looking for the AWS version, Negri Electronics has the cheapest price I've seen online. $649.50, but with the discount code Holiday12 you can save an extra $30, bringing the price to $619.50. It may have been $599 from the carriers before, but I believe it's only with a new activation.

The otterbox defender works wonders. The issue is that it makes the phone even bigger.
Canada computers had it for 49+tax a few days ago.

Another slight annoyance is that the case comes with a screen protector that doesn't fit tight with the screen, it makes you tap twice on some cases and I think it also throws of the pen sometimes.
This should be easily fixed with a custom screen protector though.

Cheers,
I got a generic rubber back case for $18. I accidentally dropped it from about 5 feet off the ground and it wasn't damaged and the case doesn't have any scratches or marks on it.


I got this for the screen.

http://www.dbacases.com/justlikeglasssc ... 5-1-1.aspx

It was only $21 but it did take about 5 business days to get to me since it came from the US.I used the Spen on it and there is not a single line/"scratch" from the S0Pen on it. My old note's screen protector has scratches/lines from the pen within a few days though it was pretty damn cheap. For those who may get the protector I have the link to make sure to do not put a lot of the liquid it came with because I have streaks from it. It got a bit better but at first even with max brightness it was noticeable. Now I can barely see it with half brightness though its more noticeable if I'm on a black screen.

Those of you on Bell do you have a hard time getting on LTE? In my home area and work area I can't get LTE but I was at my buddy's place near Warden and Steeles and the phone switched to LTE fine.

For my home and work areas I have to force it into LTE but then it switches back to HSPA after a bit (usually if I let it idle/deep sleep) but then never switches back to LTE after waking up. According to the Bell tech support, she said my phone was connecting to a farther tower then the one beside my house for some reason. She said to monitor it for a week and call back in.
which area do you live in? I used to have that problem but seems like Bell just added a new LTE tower near my place but it does keep hopping between H+ and LTE..

LOL, CAN'T STOP DROOLING.
Are you using an app to quick launch applications?
I can't imagine you going to the apps menu and then digging though the list to open the app you want. I'd find it pretty annoying.

Yes I am, I forgot what it's called. It's in here somewhere.

This is what I want my Note 2 to look & function...

Even the Screen Lock.

My second Note 2, still locked to Rogers & Stock.

When I check for Software Update, I got this message...

"Your device has been modified. Software updates are note available."

Say, what?

It might be stock but sounds like it's rooted and/or has custom recovery put on it. You tend to get the modified message when you trip the flash counter which can be done by performing root/recovery. You can reset the counter to 0 by purchasing Chainfire's Triangle Away app from the Play Store.

I don't do any of that. I just use Apps and Widgets to customize it.
