Verizon’s Galaxy Note 2 Now Up for Pre-order, “Ship by” Date of November 27

Well, it appears that for whatever reason, Verizon decided that it didn’t want to announce a pre-order for its version of the Galaxy Note 2. We say that because you can pre-order it this very minute through their website. Our sources mentioned to us a couple of times over the last few days that October 25 would be the day that pre-orders went live (which works because it’s midnight on the east coast), but we still expected to hear something official from Big Red. Whether or not we do is not important at this point. If the Note 2 is to be your next phone, then get your three Benjamins ready, and pop on over to pre-order.

If you walk through the pre-order process, you’ll see a “ship by” date of November 27. You could see it sooner or later than that, but we won’t know for sure until we hear from Verizon.

Pre-order. ($299 on 2-year contract)

Update: ┬áVerizon finally announced the pre-order this morning, but would not provide a ship date other than “coming weeks.”

Cheers David!

    Just pre-ordered mine a couple of days ago because unlike some people in this forum I don’t care about whether the Note II has VZW branding on the home button I only care about whether it will serve me well for the next two years!

    Verizon made it very clear. If I wanted to upgrade from Droid X (Unlimited Data)… to Note II. I will have to Give up Unlimited Data and “upgrade” to their share Everything Plan. FU Big Red! (I had no choice… Good Bye Unlimited Data)

    getting this for christmas hell yeah!

  • I want to keep my unlimited data just like the rest of us, but I also am thinking I can use one of my families upgrades.So I have 2 idea on how to do this..

    A) My dad is on a 4GB plan (from the double data Promotion), so I could move my upgrade to his line, get the phone, activate it on his line, and move it back to my line. But he would loose his 4GB data and get pushed to a 2GB plan..

    B) “upgrade” my mom or sister to a smartphone and get the N2, and then move them back down to their feature phone.. I know I would have to pay for 1 month of data..

    Can anyone say with 100% certainty that one of these would work?

    Home button is a deal breaker for me. Sorry, VZW, but I used to be your biggest advocate. You’ve pretty much lost me. It may seem like a small thing, but combined with the loss of unlimited data, changing return periods to 14 days, encrypting bootloaders on everything, the G-Nex radio fiasco that took them almost a year to resolve…I’ve about had enough.

    i dont know about anyone else, but as a GS3 owner on Verizon, I am really happy to see this coming with Jelly Bean. There should not be too much of a difference in builds besides the Exynos…shouldnt be too long for the GS3 owners.

      You must be new here. Verizon’s update release timetable doesn’t recognize silly concepts like logic, and instead rolls a six sided die, multiplies the result by 10 days, then begins “testing” whatever firmware the OEM has submitted for approval at that time. Once the moon aligns itself properly relative to Earth and Orion’s Belt, then they add in their own software (which they fail to test), and push it out to subscribers.
